Free Pancake Party

Barnard is celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a traditional free-pancake offering at 10 PM tonight in 406 Barnard Hall. Perhaps it’s a taste (pun) of what’s in store for this year’s Midnight Breakfast.  Yesterday, readers were apparently disappointed with the quality of CCSC’s light-blue cookies cupcakes. “Tiny and stale,” you cried in comments of rage.
