New Brunswick and Princeton

8/18/13

Today’s my day’s birthday. My mom and I woke up and checked out of the Heldrich. My dad picked us up and drove us to go food shopping in Princeton.

We love to shop in New Jersey because you can buy a month’s worth of groceries for the price of a week’s grocery in the city. We headed to Walmart. I couldn’t get over how cheap the items were. I got a nice bag for $5. We bought some food and then headed to Wegman’s to do our real shopping. The breads looked amazing today. I sampled some free hummus. My mom also had free animal crackers and tomatoes. We did a full shopping that should last us a month. Wegman’s has a wonderful selection and the prices are great. They have a huge bakery, deli, seafood, hot food, sub station, pizza area, coffee bar, salad bar, sushi section, organic section, international section, etc. The place is massive. They also have a liqueur area. They card everyone in your party though.

After Walgreen’s my mom and I ran to Target. I picked up chocolate because I was starving. We then ran to Michael’s. I love Michael’s especially around Halloween. I had to restrain myself from buying everything. I got a ton of mini gifts for friends for ridiculously cheap. We then got in the car and headed back to New Brunswick.

We checked into the Hyatt. We got our favorite room which has a large living room and a fridge. My mom and I ran out and bought a cheesecake sampler from Fresh Grocer. We got candles from the hotel. I ran and got matches from Rite Aid. We met up with my grandparents for dinner. We ate at Old Man Rafferty’s again. I got my grilled cheese, garlic bread, and a giant chocolate toffee cookie. It was bigger than my head. My dad got his usual veggie burger and fries. He ate my chips. My mom got a grilled chicken sandwich with fries. I ate some of her fries. My grandma got chicken salad in a pita with chips. My grandpa ate her chips. My grandpa got a BBQ chicken sandwich with a baked potato. The food was great but I was still hungry. The waiter was beyond slow. The woman I got my cookie from in the bakery asked me 5 times what I wanted while she pointed to it. She even threw out the first one I wanted. She didn’t speak much English. Very strange.

We passed some historical plaques on our way back to the hotel. We went back to the room and they ate the cheesecake. They also got free chocolate dipped fruit from the hotel. We kicked back and watched the Red Sox/Yankee game.
