If you’re a Graduate Student, like myself, or just trying to save some money for bigger and better things, I’m a big believer that you shouldn’t compromise on what you’re eating or wearing. Sometimes you have to keep with a budget, but don’t let that stop you, because there are really great places that offer really good food for an affordable price. Pistola La has an amazing “L’Aperitivo Italiano” menu, a.k.a Happy Hour, with the most sophisticated Italian food options and drinks for only $8 each. I was invited to try the new menu and of course I had to share with you too. I brought my bestie and we both thought it was a fun after work or Tinder/Bumble meet up spot. The meatballs were amazing, but I will have to say my favorites were the Bone Marrow Al Forno + the Fried Stuffed Olives. I also ate Fried Squash Blossoms and the Local Burrata Crostino too. I’ll definitely be back for Happy Hour, but I think my next visit will be for Dinner. If my photos aren’t convincing enough, go check out the Youtube video I put together – still drooling.
