Staff Writer Camille “Columbia Cookie Connoisseur” Sensiba applies her years of cookie knowledge in order to best recreate those fine free(ish) cookies— chocolate chip, but did that even need to be said?
CCSC was a blast this week, with a guest appearance from GSSC, VP Communications’ enthusiastic cursing, and an Among Us celebration!
With midterms (mostly) over and finals yet to start, I took on my biggest Cooking With Bwog challenge yet. (Previously, I have Eaten My Way Through the Core.) Follow along as I recount four perilous
On the list of campus projects completed over summer is the newly updated cafe in Lerner, now bearing the name “Cafe 212” only–bye, Cafe East! Boasting tall glass doors and an even taller digital display inside, the new cafe’s modern aesthetic is what we’ve been waiting for–the vibe is calming, brighter, and reminds us less […]
Update 10:13 pm: The signs are still up, but the Lerner desk says it’s okay to go inside, but didn’t know what type of vermin was being killed. It doesn’t reek of chemicals; in fact the air in 212 is more neutral and pleasing than it has ever been. Right now, and for at least […]
This is just not Café 212’s week. After being hit with 62 violations in a recent health inspection, the store flooded and has now been closed for “maintenance.” A tipster reports that he saw a man in a face mask and what looked like a mop right outside the store. No word on when it […]
Remember how we told you a few months ago that Morningside Heights is a den of filth? About that… it kind of still is. As much as we hate to believe that it’s true—we really, really love those corn muffins—it has come to our attention that Café 212 has a super high rating due to […]
Another member of campus staff has generously given Bwog their time. Sarah Camiscoli sat down with Kia of Café 212 to give students another perspective on their daily coffee and baked delights. Bwog: What are the strangest things students are swiping for? Kia: “An apple turnover with cream cheese. Some lady comes and gets it […]
After stopping Café 212’s custom salad and sandwich service on weekends, Dining restarted this part of the café’s weekend operations a few weeks ago! In an email to Bwog, Director of Dining Vicki Dunn said that they “have enough staff to resume the sandwich and salads on the weekend[s],” effectively meaning that Café 212 will […]
If you had a craving for a freshly-made salad or sandwich from Café 212 this weekend, you probably found yourself out of luck. Indeed, in a move that disappoints many, Dining Services recently made the decision to stop its salad and sandwich services on the weekends. According to Director of Dining Vicki Dunn, the café […]
Bwog’s Sean Zimmerman reports from ESC’s first meeting. “We’re pretty sexy, so I’d like to spread that sexiness around.” Varun Gulati’s personal goal for ESC was one of many discussed at the first Engineering Student Council meeting, in which council members congregated in Lerner Cinema to discuss the coming year. A new year brings new […]
The weekly ESC meeting never fails to provide all sorts of drama. Bwog’s Drama Junkie Sean Zimmermann was on hand last night to lap it up. Good Samaritan policies, smoking rules, wifi in class rooms, and dining services changes were among the major topics discussed at this evening’s ESC meeting, the last of which triggering […]
Image via gather.com Bwog Top Chef and Radiation Expert Jon Hill sauntered through Cafe 212 this morning to discover a new menu item: Stouffer’s! No longer do you have to walk all the way to MoWi for your microwavable lasagna. Cafe 212 will buy it, microwave it, and serve it to you, all for the […]
With the new year comes new dining policies, and none may be more threatening to freshman waistlines than the institution of “Order-by-Phone” pickup system at JJ’s. According to Dining Services, “you can order any food item from the menu in advance by calling 212-851-5801 and can pick it up approximately 15 minutes after the phone […]
It’s a phenomenon almost as annoying as having to re-enter your SSOL password when you leave it alone for more than 3 minutes: rising prices at campus eateries. So far, Bwog tipsters and staff have seen price hikes at many campus eateries. Offenders include Ferris Booth, which, in addition to replacing the popular stir fry […]
It’s been a long time since Bwog last checked in with the kids of Exclusion Suite, this year’s answer to the campy and wonderful Gates. Episode two was released mid-May, but Bwog, in our efforts to escape the offensively unfriendly heat, just got around to watching it. Exclusion Suite episode two begins with an acoustic […]
