Where Have All The Bartenders Gone?

   Image via Examiner.com The CU Bartending Agency doesn’t seem to be running as smoothly as its sister operation across the street.  Gender (and web-design skill) differences aside, the concept is the same, but now a message on CU Bartending’s homepage alerts “Valued Columbia Bartending Agency Clients” that the agency continues to be “unable to […]

QuickBW: To Comfort You at Home

The Blue and White’s February/March issue is now online! From the issue: Columbia and internet start-ups: two tastes that don’t go well together.
