Tonight is my last night in Grand Rapids, MI. The kind folks at GRGrub gave me a bunch of awesome-sounding places to eat while in town, but I didnt realize I wasnt staying downtown. Normally, I would be excited to venture out, but I forgot my glasses and that makes driving at night difficult, especially in a new town.
Uccello's was a quick drive from the hotel and had gotten awards for best pizza in Grand Rapids.
I started with a garden salad and the house balsamic dressing. The dressing was good and the salad was fresh. For the pizza, I ordered a grilled margherita.
I was disappointed as soon as I opened the box. I expected the grilled crust to be crispy.
It was soggy and seemed like they took a piece of store-bought flatbread and threw it on the grill. Not at all like was described in the menu as " a 9" hand-formed crust brushed lightly with garlic butter and olive oil grilled over an open flame". nope - it definitely wasnt that. I barely ate any of it , which is saying something if I can stomach pizza!
I ended up popping popcorn to go with my salad. I also enjoyed a mini Diet Dr Pepper. Love it.
When I arrived at the hotel earlier in the week, I was disappointed to see that the gym was the same size as Storage Room B. Monday night, I did a 25 min upper body lifting working with the free weights they had available.
The next day, I was talking to the instructor of my class about it and she mentioned she had a free week-long pass to her gym that she would be happy to give to me. YESSSS.
- Tuesday, I ran 4.2 miles in 40 mins.
- Tonight (Thursday), I ran 3.0 miles in 30 mins.
