The Tanner at The Pigskin in Athens, OH
Chicken breast covered in a Buffalo/Caesar sauce & topped with Cheddar Cheese.
Fun fact: “Way back” in 2010, the Tanner was a “secret” menu item - but now it’s listed along with the other sandwiches.
This concludes the OU drunk food parade. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Back to your regularly scheduled OU Homecoming drunk food parade.
The Blaze at O’Betty’s (Hot Dog with Slaw and Bacon). One of the best doing it… An absolute must-have for me every time I head back to the glory land of Athens, Ohio.

This is about to become a post-homecoming OU drunk food appreciation blog. Hope you’re all okay with that.

O’Betty’s in Athens, Ohio.
I grabbed a "Blaze" last weekend when I was in town for Homecoming. Rest assured, fellow alums - it’s still amazing. Just seeing this sign is total “drunk recall” moment for me.

Fried Chicken at Miller’s Chicken in Athens, Ohio
This was the place I demanded we go while visiting our alma mater. Sure, I would have ideally liked to hit up O’Betty’s (which we did), Kiser’s BBQ, and Salaam (neither of which we made it to). But this place was an absolute necessity.

Razz Wheat Beer at Jackie O’s in Athens, Ohio
Beer by Jackie O’s awesome brewers, shoes by Fred Perry, witty social commentary drawn on the table by hipsters.
Going back to Athens for the weekend was an awesome decision. So much drinking on patios. I love Athens.

Bruschetta and Fresh Spinach Pasta topped with Arrabbiata Sauce and Shrimp at Abrio’s Brick Oven in Athens, Ohio.
Since falling in love with all things involving peppers (in this case, chili peppers and roasted red bell peppers), Arrabbiatta sauce has been at the top of my list of things to order at Italian restaurants. This spicy red sauce from Abrio’s was no joke and the peppers were right in the forefront. Amazing way to end my Athens eating career.
This will (probably) be my last Athens post ever. That chapter of my life is over since I graduated from OU last weekend; and I’ve used up all my Athens posts that I had in the pipeline. On to the next adventure.

Rainbow and Dragon Rolls at Lui Lui in Athens, Ohio
One of my professors (definitely in my top three of all-time) suggested that we go around Athens and try restaurants that we always wanted to, as well as to hit up those “Athens classics” (O’Betty’s, Souvlaki’s, Miller’s Chicken, Salaam, etc.) one last time before we graduate. An OU Bucket List.
Lui Lui was on there for me, mainly because (to my knowledge) it’s one of the only two places in Athens that you can get sushi. So on one of my last Tuesdays in town (they only serve sushi on Tuesday), I made the trek across town.
The wait was way longer than you’d expect (they only had one sushi maker), and it barely could compare to my previous Rainbow Roll experience. But for $6 in Athens, Ohio - I’d definitely go back.

In honor of being 100% done with my undergraduate degree.
It’s been a great four years, Athens.
Cheers.

Tequila Shot at Casa Nueva in Athens, Ohio
I will almost never do a shot of Tequila under any circumstance. But were on a shuffle, and needed something quick. So I obliged.
I have a million other things I should be doing today, but I love this picture and figured it’d make a good post.

"The Blaze" at O’Bettys Red Hot in Athens, Ohio
Homemade creamy Coleslaw and smokey Bacon top this All-Beef Natural Casing Hot Dog. The combination is something that everyone’s gotta experience at least once before they graduate.
After getting it from the walk-up window late at night on many occasions, I finally got to eat inside a few weeks ago. Cross another thing off my OU bucket list…

The Big Pig from D.P. Dough in Athens, Ohio
I’m a huge fan of pulled pork, so when they added this one, I had to order it immediately.
To each his ‘zone.
