At the University of Maryland, the Dairy is a small restaurant which shares the Turner Lab building with the Visitors' Center, on Route One. It is open for lunch (between 10 and 4), and it serves University of Maryland ice cream, which is the best ice cream in the world! They have regular flavors like chocolate and pistachio as well as special UM flavors like Fridge Fever, Final Exam Cram, and Midnight Madness. They also serve hot and cold lunches: hamburgers, hot dogs, a daily hot dish, salads, sushi and wraps.
Today, I had lunch at the Dairy with Hsin-Hong, Se Young, Hyosung, James, Cindy, and Jennifer. This gave them the opportunity to discover a new (maybe healthier and quieter) place to eat lunch, and it gave me the opportunity to get to know them a little better, which was nice.
Also, the Dairy is located near the Armory. Since we have class in the Armory Monday through Thursday at 1:00, it's a very convenient place to have lunch .
