Location: 511 W. 114th Street, New York, NY 10027 […]

Last semester, Bwog heard that JJ’s place was getting a face-lift. Last night was the big reveal, so we paid a visit to John Jay’s cozy (read: sweltering) basement kitchen for a taste of the new JJ’s.

Thinking of hitting JJ’s tonight? Bwog’s Head Beverage Inspector Bijan Samareh warns you of the social dangers of late-night smoothie-savoring. JJ’s Place has its merits.

Bwog’s all-star ESC correspondent Sean Zimmerman gives you the skinny on the continued push for video games in student spaces.  Remember last week’s ESC proposal for video games in Lerner? In case you’ve forgotten, council member William Cybriwsky presented a revolutionary solution to Lerner’s oft-lamented boringness—rentable video game systems for use with Lerner’s televisions. Well, […]
