This post is going to be really fat of me. But remember I mentioned that there were so many dishes I missed from my college days at UIUC? Well, I wasn’t kidding when I said I was going to compile them in a list. I think it’s also where my interest in food heightened since there were so many options (I have my fat pictures to prove it…you’ll probably never see them though). I’m not sure if all of these are even standing still, but regardless:
15. Coffee filet steak from Radio Maria. One of those hidden gems in Champaign that created unusual combinations with common food. Hence, the coffee steak.

Gaga at Terminal 5, NYC
Continuing with my concert-filled week, I went to go check out Lady Gaga perform at Terminal 5 in NYC last night. I’ve never been so pushed, tugged, kicked, stepped on, and clawed at before at a concert quite as much as this one. The girls there went nuts! She worked the crowd in typical Gaga-style, but I was so exhausted by the end of it. And a little hungry. Nothing hits the spot better than diner food that late (the show started at 11pm, so we were out of there by 3!). We treated ourselves to the essentials at The Flame diner afterwards. I’m not proud of this, and I also don’t know why I feel compelled to show you all what I feasted on at that God-forsaken hour either.
