I have exciting news! Well, it’s a couple weeks overdue, but exciting nonetheless. In January, I paid off the very last bit of my student loan. I’ve been busting my ass since I was 18 to pay off these loans which totaled $30,000, so it was like a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders. I always said that I was going to have a huge party, almost like a Sweet 16, to celebrate being debt free, but when the time came, I just wanted to do something low key.
As I’m sure I’ve mentioned a few times, Bruckner Bar and Grill is one of my favorite places in the Bronx. When I started to get into exploring the Bronx, it was one of the first places that really wowed me and showed me what an awesome community we have here. So of course it was the place I turned to to have my official Debt-Free Brunch with TWELVE of my friends.
I ordered the Eggs Benedict, which came with potatoes and a side salad. We ordered the unlimited mimosas and I topped it all off with an apple tart. Everything was absolutely delicious and the staff was amazing. I was glad to be able to show some of my non-Bronxite friends one of our hidden gems and even some of my friends who do live here were impressed, too.
