Baby Bwogger and Barnard First-Year Sarah Perry faced her fear of approaching random people in the dining halls.
On September 20th, the Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life teamed up with Columbia Religious Life to host a forum on the recent measles outbreak in New York’s ultra-orthodox Jewish communities. The recent outbreaks
As fummer is upon us–that is, the time between summer and fall when the morning chill requires a sweatshirt that later gets soaked in sweat around 1 pm–we shall celebrate the equinox early and in
Named after one of our favorite founding fathers, John Jay is next on our freshpeople housing lineup. While this building is known for its dining halls (John Jay & its greasy younger brother, JJ’s place), there are other qualities that make it a desirable residence hall. Location: 511 W. 114th Street, New York, NY 10027 […]
Barnard students just received an email announcing tuition and fees for next year, as well as changes to the dining plan. Though Barnard students lost JJ’s Place access last year, they will once again be able to swipe into the dining hall in the fall. The email announced other changes as well, such as dinner being […]
Bwog received several tips that a water pipe burst in JJ’s Place, leaking about an inch of water into the kitchen area. The manager reportedly yelled that people shouldn’t touch wires. We also heard that the flood was from all the rain New York’s been getting today, which makes sense: Bwog spotted a few leaky […]
Damn, wouldn’t some mozzarella sticks and chicken wings, a Jamba Juice, and maybe even a chocolate milkshake be delicious right now? This rat thought so too, but was disappointed to find that JJ’s Place was closed at this hour. There on the steps he cried, until a human found him and crafted a crude Snapchat. […]
Hide yo burgers, hide yo fries, ‘cuz they’re inspectin’ everybody out here. Bwog has received multiple reports that New York health inspectors showed up at JJ’s Place today, apparently unannounced (much like a bed intruder). Looks like JJ’s might become BFFs with Absolute Bagel and m2m. According to one tipster: Tonight in JJs around 6:45PM […]
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. Naturally, the picture has inspired some questions: Where did it come from? Where is it going? Why JJ’s? What does it all mean? Bwog doesn’t have these answers, but a […]
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. There are many things a Columbia student might want after a long night in Butler—an espresso, a basket […]
Bwog heard rumors that Dining was revamping JJ’s Place for fall 2012, so we contacted Victoria Dunn, Executive Director of Columbia Dining. Details, below. Menu Changes According to Vicki, “the idea with the menu revamp is to keep the JJ’s favorites, but introduce a new line of healthier options, including a brand-new salad bar with composed […]
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 […]
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, […]
But it also equals fried food and a sneak peek of the Varsity Show! So if you missed the first set of previews, you can swipe into JJs tonight for another round at 11:45 pm. We’ll be the ones hoarding chicken fingers. Questionable image choice via Wikimedia Commons.
Six weeks ago, JJ’s place introduced an a la carte option for those who wanted to buy a quick snack without using a meal. JJ’s aimed to have 250 customers and/or $1500 in sales per week. However, over the 6 weeks it has been open, the new service has attracted only 91 customers and $625.77 […]
