Porcupine Grille is relatively new to the University of Utah campus and you should definitely give it a try! It is a great place for students to hang out, eat some delicious food and catch a game on TV. The restaurant is in an old firehouse built in the 1930's. The atmosphere is great, the workers are friendly and it is fun to soak up all of the history the building has to offer. 

After you are filled up, stop by the Union building to do some bowling! Bowling is a fun, easy activity and the Union is the perfect place to do it because it's such a central spot on campus. If bowling isn't your thing there is also pool, air hockey and ping pong as well! Get ready for some friendly competition with your buds. WARNING: friendships will be tested.

End your day by seeing a play or musical put on by Pioneer Theatre Company.You can get student rush tickets an hour before the show starts for $5! If that doesn't work out, try to catch a student dance or theatre production put on by your peers!

If you check all of these things off your list, you are bound to have a fulfilling day at the U of U. So the next time you have a free day and don't know what to do, take my advice. You wont regret it.
