For Starters

Hey, everyone! And welcome to my new blog!

A little about myself – I’m a senior at the University of Florida, studying Telecommunication News at the College of Journalism and Communications, and Political Science at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. I’m taking a few classes at UF during the summer, so I’m in Gainesville for the term.

About this blog? Well, for the past two years I’ve been at UF I’ve never really left campus to eat, save for a few trips to Red Lobster and Applebee’s when my parents are in town. But as the Spring semester ended, I became tired of eating the same things every day.

Plus, as a Telecommunication News major, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to downtown Gainesville several times on assignment. And every time I have, I’ve been very tempted to try the nice restaurants there. So it occurred to me – why not use the summer to do it?

This blog will document my experience as I see what Gainesville dining has to offer. While I wouldn’t consider myself to have the makings of a restaurant critic for the Michelin Guide, I hope this blog will be useful to college students and Gainesville residents in picking a place to go for lunch during the week, for dinner on a Friday night, or for a snack on an Sunday afternoon.

I’ll typically pick places I’ve seen, but I’ll also take some suggestions from this website. I’ll also take suggestions from you!

Bon Appetit!
