Exciting good news! According to a University Senator, the Hungarian Pastry Shop Sip has signed up to accept your Flex points. Things should be up and running by the end of the term.

Gautam Hans reports: A horde of 20 “Production Scouts” descended upon the Hungarian Pastry Shop today at noon, apparently investigating it for possible use in the upcoming film adaptation of “The Nanny Diaries” starring Scarlett Johansson.
