It’s only the beginning of the semester, so you still have a fair amount of time before you really have to buckle down and get serious in order to please your parents (who are spending over 60k a year on tuition) (hahaha capitalism) and get those As. Before the stress settles in, how about combining […]
It’s Thursday night, friends and lovers. Here, CBA-er Jerry Rivera, GS ’14, gives you a 2for1 special: dinner and drinks. Growing up in Arizona, there was one thing I never lacked: Mexican food. Hole-in-the-wall restaurants and food trucks litter every street corner and serve plates teeming with rice, beans, and an assortment of grilled meats at […]
And now we introduce you to the Columbia Bartending Agency. Here we have Managing Director Talia Savitskaya, Operations Manager Ethan Fudge, and Agency Manager Tom Reidy. Bwog: CBA is basically completely student run, yes? Talia: It’s run by the Center for Career Education. They do it to provide jobs for the students–students run it and […]

Enjoy Victoria Gardens, and please celebrate responsibly! Bwog sleeps soundly knowing that somewhere a group of strangers is getting to know each other via a revealing […]
It’s midterm season. The jolly japes of February have come to an end. There’s no leap day to cheer, no Olympics for another year. The craziness of the Oscars has finished, and the madness of March has yet to come. Long story short, there’s close no reason to drink – and what better reason to […]
Classes are finally over this Monday–isn’t that swell? Well, we s’pose it would be if there weren’t no pesky finals and papers to finish off. But don’t worry, baby, your folks at Drinking with Bwog, New York’s hottest speakeasy, are here to make sure everything’s fine and ducky. Don’t let prohibition reading week stop you […]
As intensely dedicated journalists, Bwog has tried hard to avoid bias and hearsay in the months leading up to the election. Finally though, the tough times of campaigning are over, so we can let our hair down and have a drink or two with the knowledge that our incumbent will continue to cumb for four […]
So, if you’ve been outside in the past week (and if you haven’t, Bwog salutes you) you’ve probably noticed that the weather has taken a turn for the dismal. Every day brings a fresh struggle over which accessories to wear – umbrella, sweater, rain boots, sunglasses, mink stole… The soul grows fatigued. Tonight however, shitty […]
If it’s only the third week of classes and you’re already dreading the biweekly torture that is Literature Humanities (or as it’s called by those in the know, Masterpieces of Western Literature and Philosophy in the City of New York), Bwog is here to help. You’re already showing up to your classes hung over, so […]
Bwog reported about a policy change for alcohol in freshman residence halls: there are no (officially) dry dorms on campus anymore, as far as we can surmise, although you must be 21 to drink. “But who could this apply to?” we hear a skeptic enquire. (“Did you mean ‘To whom could this apply?’?”) Most obviously this […]
Despite always playing second fiddle to Carman’s “fun” dorm reputation, the denizens of John Jay are hip party-cats in their own right, and as such, have created numerous nicknames for the single-ridden dorm. As an homage to this spirit of creativity, and in anticipation of your first official Thursday night out, here are 7 drinks […]
Yes, of course, your NSOP OLs know all the nice and effective icebreakers that can be played out on the sunny lawns, but what about when the sun goes down and everyone moves inside? Bwog is here for you to bond with your new classmates and let your inner party animal out at the zoo […]
For our final Thursday of the semester, Bwog is once again here for you. Please drink with us in this final installation of this year’s drinking with Bwog. Pour a little out for Spring 2012.
