If you’ve never dated a foodie, like my boyfriend Demitri, it’s a delectable experience (plus, he's a fraternity foodie – a rare breed). Not only is his Instagram on point with pictures of what he’s eaten the night before, but he is always promising to take you on dates

Megan: “That doesn’t have eggs in it.”
Alongside the harbor where expensive sailboats float in the murky Long Beach water is Schooner or Later, where the line is long, but the food is worth it (not so much the drinks). My plan when going to a brunch place is to get real tipsy, and I barely felt anything after I ordered a watered down drink off their menu. However, the real star in Demitri’s eyes is the crab benedict with real crab instead of imitation.
“Nothing like real crab by the docks to make you feel rich AF.” – Demitri
I don’t think there’s one person who has gone to the Attic that hasn’t raved about the Mac & Cheetos, which is
This is where I held a surprise birthday party for the foodie himself. If you have a disposable income and would rather spend it on raw meat that you cook yourself at a restaurant versus raw meat that you cook yourself at home, this is the place to be.

This frat-guy-filled late night hang out is like the older, much cooler brother of Denny’s. Film posters and signs adorn the walls and arcade games are both inside and outside.

Foodies like expensive, but at Creamistry you really get what you pay for. You pick the base, the flavors, and extra toppings like nuts, fruit,
One of our first dates was to this late night dessert stop, a popular spot with a frequently long queue outside where you can order their specialty flavored ice cream either by itself or inside a donut. You heard me. A donut. Technically, it’s a ‘milky bun,’ but it’s a glazed donut all the same, and flavors like Cookie Monster, Churro, and Milk and Cereal make for a unique tasting experience.
