    would be most sad if “restaurant” is the taco truck

    What’s sad is that I *can’t* take over the taco truck D:

    that wouldn’t be sad – the taco truck is awesome.

    For me the ‘restaurant’ was in the basement of the same building as the lab, so I didn’t need to be outside the building. Cardboard trays, and burgers which were a different color from the trays but otherwise quite similar.

    Yeah, that’s pretty much what mine looks like…though with fewer instances of coffee place/restaurant and more appearances of the grocery store 3 blocks from my apartment because I am also a very poor grad student. (Curse this hiring freeze that screwed me out of an assistantship.) And the coffee place and the restaurant are both in the library…which is across the street from my dept’s building. Though I really prefer the coffee cart in the basement of my adopted (read: not official but I live there half the time anyway) department’s building…they have the best chai lattes ever, and I’m actually long overdue for one. So overdue, in fact, I don’t even know if they still have them on the menu.

    When I was in grad school, there was an on-campus pub just for grad students and their guests. This was in Canada. It was outside my building. Oh, and we had softball teams of grad students from different departments, so we actually got some fresh air. They tolerated the unathletic of us quite nicely.
