My college has its own pub. Yes, ridiculous. But it is cozy and adorable! I fancifully think like Hogwarts, except more drinking (although man I wish we had butterbeer!)
But it is in the cozy basement of our CASTLE (yes, we have a castle on campus- they mostly use it to host fancy pants alumni events) and it’s a really nice spot to hang. You also see professors there, which is pretty funny.
Last I went, since I am a total chick about beer and have yet to find a kind, at least American, that I like, I opted for hard cider. This is Original Sin. DELISH! In the background is my friend’s Oktoberfest. I didn’t care for it…
However, the pub is also distinctive for having ridiculously good food that you can pay for with points. Dangerous! I was kind of ridiculously out of character the first time I went and got pub grub, in the form of a chicken quesadilla.
Not gonna lie, it was fab.
BU Pub infamously gives students a coupon for a free sandwich on their 21st birthday. I got mine three weeks after the fact… way to slack, BU. Since I had to use it within 30 days of my birthday, I actually ended up just running there on a particularly crazy day and being antisocial and getting takeout.
Look at this beaut:
A salad, a pickle (! I used to hate pickles and now I love them. I don’t really know why I ever didn’t, since vinegar plus cucumber is something that makes me really happy!), and a monnnnnster sandwich.
The cross sectional:
From bottom to top, I had turkey, corned beef, swiss cheese, pepperoncini, mushrooms, lettuce and tomato, sprouts, and hot sauce.
Though it was not in fact *free*, as they charged me $1 to upgrade from chips to a side salad and another $.50 each for the mushrooms and sprouts (ridic), it was $2. However, I knew I was not going to make a lot of headway on the two inches of meat. So I took like half of it out! And have been eating it all week, hahaha!
For example, today’s lunch:
A massssssssssssssive salad of lettuce, carrot, red peppers, red onion, turkey, and heaven-sent blueberry dressing.
Plus a massssssssssssssive apple, some slices with cinnamon and some with PB (I’m never going to be able to decide which is more delicious!)
