This fully-fed Bwogger wants to let everyone know how much he loves the Columbia Dining staff. And it’s not just because they make him buffalo chicken wraps.

That means going to Butler. But how are you supposed to bring a snack? ButCaf is expensive and doesn’t have a wide selection, but you’re “not supposed to bring […]
On his most perilous assignment yet, Bwog’s disarmingly handsome Staff Writer Henry Golub spent ten minutes in John Jay. He relates what he smelt, saw, and dealt. (Disclaimer: This is all fake, and I like John Jay. I also don’t shove people.) I’m skeptical of anyone who tells me to spend more than eight minutes on […]

This semester, a truly impressive number of fast-casual eateries have made their stake in Morningside Heights, many of them right on top of each other. First, Junzi Kitchen opened over the summer at 113th and Broadway, offering build-your-own Northern Chinese-style noodle bowls and (more recently) late nights with better booze than Mel’s. Then, Shake Shack opened […]
It’s hard to deny that New York is an expensive place – it seems as though, in order to do anything fun in the city, one must have unlimited time and money. Bwog strongly disagrees, and Staff Writer Jack Treanor is here to help with a fun, easy-to-follow itinerary that will save you money. 10:30 […]

Barnard College’s plethora of unique traditions (who else stuffed themselves to the gills at Big Sub, be honest) are always something to look forward to. Even though the college is undergoing some huge changes right now (RIP BarnLib) and some less-huge changes (the Magnolia is only moving a 10-second walk away, you can relax), its […]
A World Health Organization study linking processed meats and colorectal cancer has been backed by many experts in the field, adding snacks like sausage to the seemingly ever-increasing list of Things That Can Give You Cancer. Don’t fret too much though–the risk is minimal in comparison to, say, smoking a pack of Marlboros. (Mercury News) And […]
