I am a creature of habit. I catch the same bus into campus each day, work out at the same time, study in the same time windows, go to bed around the same time every night. I feel comfortable with routine, which meant I needed to find some type of fun to get my mind off school with all the work I’m putting in to start off the year.
Thankfully, I’ve stumbled upon a great place to take a mid-week break, Brazenhead Irish Pub. A few classmates (and fellow bloggers Joe Benny and Jeffery “Tyler” Berryman) and I were directed to try it out for their Wednesday $3.50 burgers from 4-9 pm. You may be thinking, how big can a burger be for that price and not at McDonalds or Wendy’s? It’s actually a good size, a full 1/3 lb. at least. They have a selection of 5 different types of burgers you can get for that price. My personal favorite is the Western, which has BBQ sauce, onions, and cheddar cheese which just melts in my mouth. It’s much better than any burger I grill (and I love to work the open flame). All the burgers are served with freshly cooked chips or fruit.
The food isn’t the only reason I enjoy going. Over the past trips, I’ve run into a few of the second year MBA students. It didn’t take me long to figure out they are a fun bunch, and even though they are on average 4 years older than me, and I am lacking any post undergraduate work experience, I am welcomed among them as an equal. They help get my mind off the work that is currently piling up and thinking about what to do when the weekend comes.
