I had dinner on the north side. Bongo Burger, Top Dog, LaVal's, and some of the Asian restaurants seem to have survived 20+ years of competition :-)

The Center for Theoretical Physics on campus. Early atomic bomb calculations were done on this floor of LeConte Hall by Oppenheimer, Teller and Bethe.
