Maryland summer practice

Post by 1.82 » Mon May 23, 2016 3:10 am

Hey everyone, I'm going to be living in College Park until the first week of July, so if anyone is in or around the area and has any desire to play some questions, please contact me to let me know what days of the week you're free in the evenings so that I can set up a regular date and time. Obviously these practices are open to everyone, and as usual they'll be held in Jimenez Hall. I'd love to see you around!

I'll probably continue these throughout July once Naveed leaves.

Practices will be held on Thursday afternoons from 6 to 9, starting this Thursday. They'll be on the first floor of Jimenez Hall, the usual location for Maryland tournaments. Please send me an e-mail if you need any further information.

Due to ongoing construction in Jimenez, practice tomorrow (and fire the foreseeable future) will be held in 0119 Francis Scott Key Hall, on the opposite side of the mall. It will be on the ground floor; enter beneath the large stairs at the front of the building. Contact me with any issues you have.

Monday practices have been canceled due to lack of interest. Practice will continue as scheduled every Thursday.

Hey, you guys should come today because there'll maybe be pizza to commemorate my last weekend in College Park and my last Maryland practice. If you can't come we'll also be having the first ever Maryland Academic Quiz Team mukbang (or MAQTbang).

Practice will happen again next week, but on Wednesday instead. The MAQT-bang will be happening again - I am taking food requests. Possible options:

1) McDonalds
2) Chipotle
3) Pizza (probably from a local shop)
4) suggestions welcome!

Usually you can just call the local 양념치킨 or 짜장면 place and have it delivered to you with free 무 (or 단무지 if you're getting 짜장면) and beer. If you're okay with non-kosher food, 탕수육 is usually a better (albeit a little pricey) option that you can split with your mates, or you can just order a 짬뽕 for everyone.

불고기나 찌개 같은 것은 배달 해본 적은 없어서 그 쪽으로는 추천 해줄 수 없서. 식당 안에서 먹을거면 일반적인 한식 고기구이는 차돌박이가 제일 기본이지. 나는 개인적으로 삼겹살은 너무 찔기고 지방이 많아서 안 먹는데 돼지불고기는 맛있고 대부분 모든 닭고기나 불고기 종류는 좋아. 개인 접시는 따뜻한 찌개 종류 (김치찌개, 된장찌개, 순두부) 도 좋고, 좀 더 시원한거 원하면 냉면이나 비빔냉면도 좋고, 혹시 토끼음식 먹고 싶으면 돌솥비빔밥도 좋아. 무슨 맛을 원하는지에 따라서 추천이 다른데 이건 그냥 제일 인기많은 음식들이야.

Translation: If you're doing delivery, go for fried chicken or jajangmyeon; if you're dining in, start with chadolbagi, and anything is good except samgyeopsal which is basically 90% fat and grease. If you're doing the dank open grill (which you should), then get at least one more item to either eat by yourself or share with the bros. I recommend kimchi jjigae / sundubu / doenjang jjigae for hot foods, naengmyeon / bibim naengmyeon for cold foods, and dolsot bibimbap if you want rabbit food. Most Korean restaurants don't have sparkling water, though, so you'll have to make do without.

Ophir and I won't actually be there today. Stay tuned next week, though, for a potential broadcast.
