I’m warning you in advance, when you look at what I did this month you’re going to be like…all you did was eat. I assure you I did many other things this month…having said that, yes I did go to a lot of different restaurants this month (and reviewed most of them). February is the shortest and sometimes coldest month of the year and since Spring is about to Sprung(?), I am very much looking forward to March.

February 1st – I spent the first day of the month at Sandy’s, an Italian restaurant located in East Brunswick, NJ. Considering it was a Monday, the place was PACKED. I also got a three course meal for under $16…so win win. It pays to go out during the week!
