Welcome back food lovers. Last week we got ready for an extensive trip to the Suffolk University library. This extraordinary building is not only home to some of the most sought after novels and textbooks, it is also filled with bright minds snacking on smart food choices.
On our way to the library we found ourselves walking through the delightfully scented North End in Boston. Walking by one of our favorite Back Bay Restaurant sandwich shops we found it irresistible to walk by without grabbing a snack. So without much of a fight, we agreed to give our studying session a later start so we could sink our teeth into a mouthwatering, classic Italian sub.

Inside this text is the invitation to have a burger and drink at a local pub. Immediately wanting to pack our bags and head for the door we text back that we would love to meet. However, we need to put a close on our current studies. Making sure that all of our loose ends are tied and a sufficient amount of work has been completed so far today, we leave the marvelous library and head down the street.
