No matter what your relationship is like with your roommate, it’s undeniable that they know your food habits unlike anyone else. They’re going to know all about your late-night cravings for Baked after going out on Thursdays, they’ve memorized when in the morning you’ll start hungering for a Scholars Inn bagel, and they’ll probably share your love for FARM and Malibu Grill on a spiritual level.
Here in Bloomington, we’re pretty spoiled with endless options for food. Often, you’re going to need a second opinion while contemplating all the mouthwatering restaurants, cafés, and coffeehouses B-Town has to offer—and like I said before, no one knows your food preferences quite like the person who lives with you.
