Where did the time go?

How is it that spring break is almost over?
I was supposed to have a whole draft of my senior essay done by now. I mean...it will be done by Monday, I don't have a choice in the matter.
Truth is, I don't have much to write about tonight, but I did want to say hi.

Tonight, one of the coaches organized a dinner for us at the Quinnipiac Club in the Eli. I had no idea this place existed. We got all dressed up and drank mocktails (non-alcoholic mimosas) and at delicious stuffed chicken and all across the street from TD.

But to the point. It reminded me of my culinary bucketlist. It's going to be kind of hard, or back loaded for being dry in-season but no matter....
--If its a restaurant on Whitney, I want to go.
--I've never been to Barcelona. I'm dying to go to Mandala Bistro. And the original Thali. I haven't been to Thali Too in ages, so I'm going to tack that one on there too.
--I want to try out some of New Haven's soul food, though I don't know where I'll get it.
--If Mory's opens that's a sure bet. Union League would be cool but doing it on JE's dime would be even better.
--Also, wooster square. Don't know anything about it, but hear there is some remarkable Italian.

Man, I might want to get a job to finance these endeavors.

This is also an open invitation if anyone wants to join me on my adventures (not that I've got any specific plans yet...) or has suggestions of other must-eat places for me to cram in.

Barcelona is delicious. The sweet potato fries are a must. The best way to eat there is to feast on tapas with some friends--skip the entrees and go wild with the little dishes instead.

OMG I love sweet potato fries! Thanks for the advice.

A note: I discovered, much to my dismay, that they took the sweet potato fries dish off the menu at Barcelona... but they're still available as a side to an entree, so if you insist and have a nice waiter, they'll bring you some anyway.
