Courtlin’s 2017 Restaurant Bucket List
One of my New Year's Resolutions is to visit some local restaurants I haven't tried before, and I could really use your suggestions!
For a long time I thought New Year's resolutions were stupid, but these past few years I have really grown to love them. Last year I learned to play guitar, the year before I watched 52 movies I had never seen before, and a couple years before that I lost over 20 pounds. I have a few stereotypical resolutions for 2017, like continuing to eat healthy/work out, learning to cook new foods, and paying off (or MOSTLY paying off) one of my credit cards, but I always like to throw one fun one in there. My fun one this year involves one of my favorite things - going out to eat.
I know this might conflict with my healthy eating resolution, but life is awful without some unhealthy stuff once and a while, right? When I go out to eat, I usually eat at the same places every time (Daisy's Garage, Parlor City, White Star, and The General Store are a few of my favorites), so I want to make it a goal of mine to try a new local restaurant every month for the year. That means I need 12 suggestions! Here are a few of the ones I've heard good things about that I'd like to try:
- Lincoln Wine Bar - Mount Vernon
- Rock Top - Cedar Rapids
- QDogs BBQ - Marion
- The Irish Shanti - Gunder
- Zoey's Pizzeria - Marion
- Rube's Steakhouse - Montour
Please feel free to leave any suggestions you have for me in the comments section!
