Havana Central, rest in peace. The West End, rest in peace. Bernheim and Schwartz, the new restaurant and beer hall opening up on Broadway looks almost done from the exterior; it has new sidewalk, a new sign, and has started to enclose its outdoor seating area. The restaurant is hiring, which is good because we […]

(NYT) A U.S. Army Captain stationed in Afghanistan made a surprise appearance at his daughter’s class day. Make sure you grab a Kleenex before you watch. (NY Daily News) Morton B. Friedman, […]
The evening began informally with Olivia Harris, CC ’14, jiving around the small stage, which was enough to put any audience member in a good mood. She sassily sang along to the classic songs the band was playing, making us wish we could have heard more of her voice later on in the preview. When the full cast […]
Broke? Hungry? Luckily, you’ve got quite a number of options to chose from tonight and we’re here to help you navigate the smorgasbord of free food at your fingertips.

Last night, Alex Jones, a Bwogger who wonders what the Beats would think about an official CCSC debate in their once-legendary hangout, checked out the Spec-sponsored Q&A. The three parties running for the CCSC Executive Board in next week’s elections went head-to-head at Havana Central… The master of ceremonies, Sam Roth, took almost a minute […]

Whether the proposal would affect Senior Night is unclear. (NYP) Two British men face sentencing today for running an illegal, DIY sperm bank out of […]
Bwog crowded into the mystical back room of Havana Central to see the preview of The 116th Annual Varsity Show.

Given the last two Varsity Shows’ penchant for administrative caricatures, it’s a wonder Deans Shollenberger and Denburg showed up at all. […]
Bwog has been alerted that Havana Central, bastion of all things edible and Cuban, will be accepting Flex starting in early June, which is great…if you plan to hang around a month after finals. At least summer sessioners and students returning next fall will be able to pretend that they are using a credit card. […]
Last night, a bunch of Bwog’s closest friends met up at Havana “West End” Central to make merry and make fools out of themselves in this old blog’s honor. While the antics remained slightly more subdued than we would have wanted, drunken mingling hit an all-time high. This was some hardcore mingling, man. And of course, we […]
