A Day Zero Project goal of P.J.’s has been completed!
Goal completed: Eat at 10 new restaurants
Date completed: January 2, 2015
Description: I always like to explore food, so I figured setting myself up to visit 10 new restaurants would be kind of cool.
Why I wanted to do it: Why not? Food is one of the greatest things out there. Besides needing it, it’s nice to try new things and to expand your horizons. I have found, as I’ve gotten older, my tastes change a bit. It’s nice in that regard because I’m willing to try more. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t!
How I did it: I decided to make this 20 (though the original plan is 10, which is how I’ve left it) and I know I’ve eaten at more than 20 new places since I started this rendition of the Day Zero Project. Thankfully, I tend to take photos of my food when out, so I could go back and look at the places I’ve been and figured it out. Though I did it just recently, hence the big gap between when I finished it and am now posting. Not all of these places were amazing, but most were pretty solid, which made it pretty cool.
Those that I visited and remember are listed below, with the city/town they are in.
1. Tinker’s Seafood (Manchester, NH)

About P.J.’s Day Zero Project: Day Zero is a project where people come up with 101 things to do over 1001 days. I started the project on August 1, 2014 with an anticipated finish date of April 28, 2017. Goals will not be revealed until they are completed. A private list is at the Day Zero website and the list will be made public upon completion of the project. It’s my thoughts that if things are kept private, should I not do them, change or find a way around it, I’d only be cheating myself.
