Though we probably can’t see as many free exhibits nowadays, at least we’ll be able to drink our underage art-deprived sorrows away. The CU Arts’ latest initiative, CUlinary Arts, now gives Columbia students special deals at restaurants around the city – 12 out of 32 of which involve free alcohol, mostly in the form of free prosecco or champagne (an interesting choice of deals given the largely < 21 target population). However, the list features a decent range of budgets, cuisines and locations. There’s SushiSamba for Japanese/Brazilian fusion, Ouest for American, French at DB Bistro Moderne and Indian at Bay Leaf. For the less geographically adventurous, Community, Mama Mexico and Sezz Meddi are also participating in the program. CU Arts, our palates and wallets thank you.
