This may seem like an obvious answer to the question “What is one thing you have to do before graduating from Michigan?” but hear me out. Going to a football game doesn’t mean spend hours tailgating and then nap until dinner. It doesn’t mean go for the first quarter and then leave because it’s too hot/cold/windy/loud. It doesn’t mean staying until the fourth quarter but bouncing five minutes early because Michigan is playing like a PAL football team. When I say before graduation you have to go to a football game, I mean really go to a football game.
The first time I came to Ann Arbor, I was a junior in high school, exhausted from a flight that had been delayed for three hours. The last thing I wanted to was be outside in the cold Michigan air, but my father insisted that we hit the streets and explore this new city. That’s when we came upon Frita Batidos.
Before the food even hits the table, Frita Batidos stands out. With it’s glowing white brick and glass exterior, it shines through the brown aesthetic of the storefronts surrounding it. Immediately, you’re intrigued by the place. And then, the food comes out.
