Not sure about specials but some good places for lunch that are fairly cheap...
Revolutionary Soup (Downtown) http://www.revolutionarysoup.com/
Marco and Luca's (Downtown)
Panera (Barracks)
Boylan Heights (Corner) http://www.boylan-heights.com/
Chipotle (Barracks)
Five Guys (Barracks) http://www.fiveguys.com/home.aspx
Bodo's (North of Barracks/Corner) http://www.bodosbagels.com/


This is the one I was thinking of.


Wow, the next lunch meet-up needs to be at Rev. Soup - the menu looks delicious!

I'll just pick 7PM as the time for the pizza order, but I'll be around earlier if people want to show up early. BYOB.

PM me if you're coming (and if you want in on the pizza pot) and I'll PM back the address. I live off Arlington Blvd not far from the law school.


Domino's near me is having a $5 large carryout special for pizza, which is super super cheap.

Mediocre. I thought it was okay but pretty greasy. They did have good sweet potato fries though.

Yesterday I went for brunch and had a Ranchero which is an English muffin with a burger, cheese, chili, and egg on top. Obviously a heart attack waiting to happen but it was really good and came with fresh fruit (that balances it out right?).

I guess it could have been what I ordered, I am not good at picking stuff out on a menu.

I would love to get in on the hiking. I'm living in Ivy so it should be easy meeting up.


Thanks!

So bad news everyone- iceberger called and apaprently there is a really large fee for a pool party, and it's also supposed to rain Wednesday, so I think we're going to have to bag it.

We were thinking maybe we could all meet at Mellow Mushroom around 6 instead, any takers?

Never know, not everyone has the same tastes so maybe it's not for everyone.

Regarding Mellow Mushroom Wednesday, if you're not aware, it's Trivia night that night so it's going to be very crowded from around 6:45 on. If you wanted to play, I'd recommend getting there around 6:30-6:45 to get a big table since you're going to have to sit there til 9 PM when trivia starts to keep your spot reserved. If you're not playing, I'd either go earlier like 5 PM or just pick a different restaurant to avoid the crowd.

Otherwise, if people don't want to go to a crowded restaurant (I admittedly had trouble hearing at Mellow last time and smiled/nodded a lot to avoid saying "huh?" eighty times), I would be happy to have people over for dinner. I live at Jefferson Ridge, next to the Woodlands. I ordered a couch that still hasn't come in, but we have two big chairs, computer chair and a huge kitchen table (seats 6) - I'm sure we could make it work. I can also talk to JR tomorrow and find out more about our clubhouse/pool policies. Any interest in a potluck?

I could probably go for trivia. I can answer pretty much any geography question they would throw at me.

I just got back from Cazon Tropical, a Dominican/Honduran/Salvadorian restaurant. It's pretty awesome food and good portions. They also have several $6.95 lunch specials. If you're looking for something a little different you might give them a try; they're on US 29 at Woodbrook. --LinkRemoved--

They are closed on Tuesdays, however, for some reason.

If you're in C-Ville now, you might want to drop by the bookstore and pick up your CrimLaw casebook. The good used copies are few and far between, and believe me, you'll be spending enough money already without paying the extra $40 for a new one.

Has anyone that has gotten some books confirmed that we can in fact charge books to our student account and not pay for them?

Also, is the orientation schedule posted online anywhere?
