Clever bloggers figured out that we were traveling to North Riverside last night to eat at Olive Garden, and were very confused, I’m sure. Long story short, Rachel ate a strange boy’s cake and as a reward we took her to Olive Garden. I remember Olive Garden being completely tolerable! We went there while I was in high school and had totally satisfactory meals! This was some of the worst food I’ve eaten in my life. Whats worse is that it costs PT and I $36. On the way home we tried not to think of all the things we could have bought with that money:
1. Dinner at Handlebar including appetizers and drinks.
2. Three weeks worth of groceries.
3. Nine burritos.
4. Three tickets to a Sox game.
5. Two and a half plates of this:
PT and I recovered today by biking up to Lincoln Square for Maifest! PT at that brat, we shared the potato salad and sauerkraut. That mound of goodness next to it? That is the best pretzle we have ever eaten. We also got a huge piece of very delicious cake and a stein of bier, set to live, costumed, German music. Total cost? $17.
Suck it, Olive Garden.
