THOU SHALL NOT PASS

Damn, wouldn’t some mozzarella sticks and chicken wings, a Jamba Juice, and maybe even a chocolate milkshake be delicious right now?

JJ’s Place Gets Inspected

Hide yo burgers, hide yo fries, ‘cuz they’re inspectin’ everybody out here.

Overseen: Mystery Picture on the Steps of JJ’s

Today a tipster spotted this (bizarre? provocative? exciting?) image on the stairs leading to JJ’s place and was kind enough to share it with us.

JJ’s Smoothies Are A Mouthful

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. First and foremost, it’s the only campus dining location where you can witness the Dionysian abandon of that vegan on your floor who only eats hummus and celery and air drunkenly […]

ESC: Dining Goes Kart Krazy

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.
