I went out to dinner with my graduate student mentor.  We decided to check out Basil, a nice Mediterranean restaurant, because I am deprived of opportunities to eat out here.  The other interns in my program buy 2 weeks worth of groceries and cook/bake/microwave every night.  I have only gone to the one Korean restaurant in Charlottesville once because I have no friends to go with me.  There's also a tea/hookah place downtown called Tea Bazaar that I really want to go to, but again, nobody willing to spend the money.  I will just have to take a book there and puff on the hookah alone one of these days...

Anyway, Basil is a small restaurant on The Corner with wooden tables and plain decor... The Italian menu was simple enough with a good selection of insalata and panini.  But the drink menu, ohhh man.  It was like an encyclopedia of imported beers- Belgian, German, Austrian, Australian... even Efes Pilsen, the Turkish beer!  So that's what I had, a cold bottle of Efes with a salmon salad and quality conversations on the side.

The highlight of my summer in Charlottesville, seriously.
