As mentioned before, my roommate and I get along pretty well.
We’re pretty mellow and easy-going. Goofy. And often try to keep things light- not taking much too seriously.
And then football season rolls around.
She has no issues with my college football team. She went to a smaller school that doesn’t celebrate the glory of football Saturdays at anything near the level I’ve grown up with (GO MIZZOU).
But NFL? Well. We agree to disagree. To the extreme.
What a disaster.
However, I try not to judge the poor team choices of others (yes, it’s a low blow but this is my blog and I’ll do what I wanna) and work to find a common ground.
We both like football. We both like food. We both like beer. We both like unwinding on the occasional Thursday night.
There was no other choice.
Because we all need a little shake up in the routine, yes?
On the mission to try something new, we checked out Schoolyard Tavern- a Lakeview neighborhood spot.
$5 stadium cups are something a fan from any team can get behind.
Finally tried fish tacos, ya’ll. One grilled tilapia and one grilled shrimp. The chicken taco was purposely ordered because it seemed to be the best one on the menu that would work as leftovers the next day.
Because I always think ahead.
And after a Bears loss like that, at least I’ve got something from last night to smile about.
Alright, kids. It’s Friday. And you know what that means.
Let’s buckle down and get through it. Happy weekend!
What teams are you cheering for this weekend?
