Zagat Facilitates Your Inner Cheapskate

Written by

As you’ve probably figured out by now, we at Bwog just can’t get enough of free food. Once we’ve stepped off campus, though, we’ve noticed that free food opportunities are few and far between. While some might argue that this is reason enough to never leave the Morningside Bubble, we’d like to think there’s more to experience in the NYC culinary scene than free¬†cookies and milk and Roti Roll. All the same, eating in NYC can get pricey! Here’s where Zagat comes to the rescue. As part of its Cheap Eats Week, Zagat presents the “Cheap Eats Smackdown: Fordham vs. Columbia vs. NYU.” After all, who knows how to stretch a dollar better than a poor college student? Check out how these three college students make the most of $20 in NYC, and let Zagat know who you think does it best in the comments. The winner gets $100! That’s a whole lot of halal cart!
