The Taco Bell on Trowbridge Road in East Lansing.

Fast food is almost never my first choice, but when it is, there is one place J and I can usually agree on.  This particular scenario came up Saturday morning.  I was working at Spartan Stadium for the MSU spring football game.  When it came time for lunch, J came to pick me up so I wouldn’t lose my parking spot.  I was worried about rain and only had about 45 minutes by the time she got there, so I figured sitting down was out of the question.  If the sky’s opened up, I wanted to get back in a hurry to get my gear covered and out of the elements. 

The night before, we debated between pizza and tacos for a late night run and pizza won out.  Since we both had the taco craving, we headed for the border.

The closest Taco Bell that I could think of is on Trowbridge Road in East Lansing near the US 127 interchange.  We headed back that way and made the left turn into the somewhat small parking lot.  At first, I wondered if we could even turn there, but there looks to be a cutout in the median just for the purpose of going to Taco Bell.

Georgio's Gourmet Pizzeria on Charles Street in East Lansing.

I love late night pizza-by-the-slice places and I love living near a college town that has many places to fill that late night craving. 

J got home from work just before midnight like she always does and I said, “I’m hungry” like I always do.  This time, she said she had a taste for pizza or tacos too.  We debated the pros and cons of each and eventually settled on pizza.  Since there’s no place on the south side of Lansing to get a slice at midnight, we trekked to East Lansing.

There are a couple locations for Georgio’s in East Lansing, but I chose the one in the downtown area on Charles Street.  We drove around the streets of downtown a few times on a very busy Friday night looking for pizza.  I knew there was a Georgio’s and a Bell’s, but I didn’t remember which was where.  We drove by Bell’s because there were so many kids around and no place to park.  I made it to Georgio’s and got really lucky.  There was a parking space right out front.  I showed off my awesome parallel parking skills (there was no space in front of me, so really, I just pulled in) and we went inside.  Read the rest of this entry »
