Just before an exam.
It’s notoriously hard to find somewhere decent to eat around the Loyola campus. I’ve been here all day more or less (mostly less) studying for my OS exam which is at 7 (in a little over an hour.. I never study in the hour coming up to an exam, it just serves to freak you out). I decided to take some time off and find some decent food which wasn’t the greek or fast food place right next to the campus. (There’s the cafeteria also but it’s twice as expensive as food at a normal restaurant and not anywhere near as good. Yay Chartwells.) I took the bus down Sherbrooke looking for an interesting place and saw a place called Bratwurst nearly on the corner of Sherbrook and Hingston. I’ve haven’t had german food very often in my life so I got off and walked in.
The guy at the counter saw me looking around and asked me if it was the first time I was there. I said yes and asked what he reccommended. He said their specialty was grilling german sausages and serving it in a sandwich with saurkraut (sorry if I spelled that wrong) and dijon mustard. I told him I’d have that and he had me pick between lamb, pork, beef, beef & pork and something else. I choose the beef & pork. It was pretty good but Skrud would probably need at least 2 sandwiches. =)
I also tried the beer they had on tap, a beer called BitBurger that was actually _very_ good. If I see that around again I’ll definitely have more.
I also had an interesting conversation about the media blowing things out of whack without every giving any facts and Chernobyl with a couple of random guys that were regulars there. Not that I was really stressed before but now, coming up to exam, I’m nice and calm and comfortable. Hopefully I’ll still be this way once I’ve read the question list.
