Give me your hungry masses

Hello World (or like the 5 people that take time to read any of this). For those of you interested in what this blog might be like or what kind of blogger I am, there's not really much I can tell you. I can tell you that normally I wouldn't be that into posting my opinions in an online format (I have a very clear aversion for "statuses" of any kind [although I may have to use gchat status to get the word out about my blog]). I'm also not that great of a writer and clearly lack the humor of the greater bloggers of our time (see Danny Weiss).

What I can offer is the opinion of an amateur "foodie" that watches way too much food TV and usually has some friend in town that wants to try somewhere new and different. My interest in trying as many different restaurants as possible definitely started with my love for the show Diners Drive-Ins and Dives and has blossomed after my move to Lincoln Park.

Most of all I'm writing this to provide advice on restaurants. I've been led astray too many times by Yelp and Metro Mix (and once or twice by Guy Fieri), and here's my attempt to save you from my perils while drawing you toward some of the best food in Chicago (that an unemployed student can occasionally afford).

I hope you enjoy my suggestions, and if you have places you think I need to go to, let me hear it.

  1. I'd like some guests post from Barb P. I think she may have something valuable to add.

    Two additional notes: www.jeffeatschicago.com is available and will cost you $10/yr (purchase from godaddy with a coupon code). Before you get too into this check out the wordpress blogging platform as it is rather robust. I've added you to my reader. this better be good.

  2. I like Matt M's comment!! I thought you did a great job reviewing the restaurant and I'd like to go try it. You should let the restaurant see your review.

  26. Plan out when you will take a break. Taking a break to eat, drink, and kick up your heels is often a good idea. However, don’t let yourself become too distracted during your break! Plan out a chosen amount of time that you will take a break for. It is best to take a break after you have completed an entire task rather than in the middle of it. One example could be that you plan to take a break after you have cleaned out under your bed and before you start organizing the smaller things in your room.
    • Don't take a break if the time of your break comes around and you feel as though you're on a roll. Use that feeling of being on a roll to get even more done!
