Random Happenings

Random notes and pics about events in the life of a not-your-typical Computer Science grad student. (Yes I am a nerd, but I don't live and breathe the SciFi channel, well maybe Stargate SG-1...)

Mmmmm is for Mondays

For the last couple of weeks, Nathan, Timmie, Olga and I (friends from school) go out to eat for lunch after our Monday meetings are over. Lately we've been going to Los Molcajetes, a new Mexican restaurant in town. It's named for the particular way they cook food in a molcajete. A molcajete is a stone pot for cooking meat stews. It is warm an wonderful, especially on a cold day like today. It's served with beans, rice, and tortillas, and this place makes the best homemade corn tortillas I've ever had. After lunch we ran by Starbucks to get some caffeine to keep us awake during the afternoon seminar. It's not that seminars are always boring, it's that a nice, warm, full stomach can be hard to fight in the afternoon. Los Molcajetes has turned a potentially dreaded Monday full of meetings into a day to look forward too. (Plus it usually means great leftovers that night!)
