Student Center · University of Missouri · 518 Hitt St, Columbia, MO
Samantha Kubota: Get yourself a caramel apple spice from Starbucks, then wander. See if you can get to the middle of the two wings. Also, look for secret rooms. I feel like the secret societies would meet there.
Burger Joint · University of Missouri · 901 E Rollins St (btwn Missouri Ave & Hitt St), Columbia, MO
Eric Zigler: The best hotspot on campus. Grab a bite to eat, play a round of pool and hop on the jukebox. Fill the place with the sweet sounds of The Eagles, Foreigner, Bob Dylan and Boston. In that order, please.
Piano Bar · North Village · 1025 E Broadway (at Hitt St), Columbia, MO
Eric Zigler: Fact: They're going to play the Mizzou fight song and you, in your drunken state of mind, won't remember any of the words. So just for you my friend, here they are... (see picture). Now make us proud.
Diner · North Village · 1005 E Walnut St (btwn 9th & Orr St), Columbia, MO
Dieter Kurtenbach: The best breakfast place (see: hangover food) in Columbia. I always get the KC strip steak with eggs, hashbrowns and toast. MMMMM. The staff is almost too nice. Two Diet Cokes and small talk everytime
Asian Restaurant · 3802 Buttonwood Dr. (off Nifong), Columbia, MO
Erin Gersbach: A place where you pick exactly what you want to eat, you get to choose a specialty sauce, and watch the chef's create your entree to perfection! Great specials happen at lunch during the week!
College Gym · University of Missouri · 1000 W Rollins Rd (at Rollins & Hitt St), Columbia, MO
Eric Zigler: In all honesty, 95% of people that come here to workout have no idea what they're doing. So feel free to jump in and join the rest of us in being awkward and acting tough. Grrr. Grunt. Football. Etc.
