Back Of The Envelope: How Much Did Cannon’s Steal From Students?

For the first-years who don’t know, Cannon’s was a Columbia bar at 108th and Broadway. While the business hadn’t actually been called Cannon’s since 2004 (it turned into O’Connell’s, and then into Tara Hill), the venerated bar was a well-attended watering hole since the 1930’s. Last June, Cannon’s announced that it would be shutting its […]

In Defense Of: The 1020 Line

If your goal is to actually get into 1020 (sorry, anonymous Bwog staffer, “1,020” is never gonna happen), The Line is pretty indefensible.

Mel’s Burger Bar: Try It, You’ll Like It

Morningside has food niches vacated and sort-of filled every few years. AmCaf, beloved steak sandwich locale in the early aughts, became a fancy tapas bar that no one you know eats at. The fabled West End became mediocre Havana Central, a shadow of its former Kerouac-hosting, drunk-makeout-and-beer-pong-haven self. You could get full and drunk for […]

Ding Dong Done? (updated)

Ding Dong Lounge, the dive bar on Columbus, appears to have ceased operations sometime during winter break.  Worried friends and loved ones had mentioned in passing that the bar seemed to have new, reduced hours, but an endlessly ringing phone and those shuttered doors suggest a far grimmer fate.  We salute you, Ding Dong: you […]

And So Continues Roy Den Hollander’s Crusade Against Injustice

Remember American hero and proud Business School alum (’97) Roy Den Hollander? The self-described antifeminist who sued Columbia for failing to offer a “men’s studies” course? Whatever, anyway, he’s back! And he’s suing mad, specifically about ladies’ nights at bars because what else? This month, Hollander is arguing that when nightclubs offer all the ladies […]

Meet Your New Mona

You know what we haven’t thought about in awhile? Mona. The bar. It closed last year after a crackdown or some such and then everyone headed to 1020 and pretty much forgot the whole thing. Anyway, Spec reported last year that it will be replaced by Pourhouse, a downtown beer and sports bar that caters […]
