Out and About: Fort Taco


Hey all,

It’s G.S. again. This time with another Out and About. Today I’ll be discussing the fast food Mexican restaurant called Fort Taco. Fort Taco has 3 different locations in the St. Louis area. I stopped by the Chesterfeild Mall Food Court and found this hidden gem where Sabarro’s was.

Fort Taco is made fresh daily and it’s fast. My dad, brother and I waited probably five minutes for food. However, only having three items there isn’t much variation. The three items are as follows: The Puffer, there puffed taco shell which with the chicken and chili verde sauce is delicious, The Enchee, a new take on the enchilada with potatoes peas and shredded cheese, and The Tamale.

I had the combo platter which consisted of a Puffer and an Enchee. The puffer had a very fresh, crisp taste from the lettuce with a little heat from the chili verde. The tortilla worked well with it. The enchee was a twist. At first I thought it would be weird. However the favors worked and meshed so well together that before I knew it both parts of my meal were gone and I was satisfied.

Okay, I know the prices. When talking about a new place you want to know, especially in college, how much it will set you back. The most expensive thing on there menu is a puffer pack, 13 puffers at $46.20 before tax. However for a combo which comes with drink you’ll be looking at $7.27-$8.99 before tax. Which for the quality is worth it.

Now it is very hard to make a place a 10/10 on my first time trying it. However, with the kindness of the staff working and the delicious food. I have to give them my recommendation.

For now I’ll be signing off. Until next time keep your eyes open for good food as you never know when a hidden gem will come your way. Thank you all and I will be glad to give any places you want me to review a try. All you have to do is leave a comment down below.

Sincerely,

G.S.

Wildcon


Hey all,

We are now ten days removed from what could’ve been called the greatest convention in STLCC history. This convention known as Wildcon was hosted at STLCC Wildwood in the Multi-Purpose Room on April 3rd, 2015 from 4-9 pm by the League of Extraordinary Gentleblokes, Nerd Culture, Club at the Wildwood Campus. I was staffing there during it and I must say they had a few things going right. With a turnout between 125-132 people, it’s no surprise that we will be hearing from Wildcon again. If you missed it be sure to stay tuned for the next installment coming in the fall semester. Below are some photos from the convention one of a cosplayer as the Witch-king of Angmar. The other is of a musician named Ben Webb from the band, they had performing, Jeopardize.

Signing off until next time,

5 Ways to Help with Midterms


Hi all, I’ve learned from experience that procrastination isn’t a good thing. So here are five ways to make your midterms a lot easier.

5. Participate in class – This may be hard, especially for those of us who find a class boring, but showing the teacher you care is the first step in easing in.

4. Schedule your homework – Instead of letting everything pile on it’s best to take a deep breath and schedule yourself time to do homework. Even if that means cutting into time with friends.

3. Group study session –  I can guarantee you that not everybody in the class gets every subject. The best way to learn is together. Trying to figure out everything you don’t know and cram it in doesn’t work. Not one bit. However, by helping someone with what they don’t know it reinforces that in your head and then when that’s done they can help you with what your having trouble in.

2. Sleep well –  Making sure you’re well rested for class is very important. Being asleep in the class is not going to help you learn.

1. Ask the teacher –  If there’s a concept you’re not getting, ask the teacher. However, make sure if its on the homework it’s just one part. They are not there to do the homework for you. They will sit down and help you work out a solution. Make sure that you schedule time at least once to sit and talk with them.

Signing off until next time,
G.S.
