So you can revel in the anticlimactic glory that is our beloved Morningside, Bwog catches a few last-minute minutia that might have made all the difference to your morning coffee/mental state during this darkest night, finally lifting. `
The NoCo librarians have stuck again! After launching a pun-laden campgain against non-spillproof mugs last week, the intrepid book-minders (there are books in there somewhere, right…?) feel it necessary to now also point out that food is not allowed in the Science and Enginerring Library. Thus, they’ve printed out a picture of a most comely […]
Eliza Shapiro, who knows the culinary landscape of Morningside Heights like no other, was quick to alert us to the very important development of a new Crumbs Bake Shop at 108th and Broadway. It will take up residence in the shopfront which formerly housed Crystal Gourmet. We hope this won’t be accompanied by gang violence. […]
Two Joe employees examine the existential questions surrounding seafood-dish viscosity, in front of the new vending machines: ”I’m just uncomfortable with calling ceviche a soup.” Image of a seafood dish that can’t be comfortably referred to as a soup via Wikimedia.
We all know that Morningside Heights contains a lot of good eats, but they haven’t always been taken seriously. Bwog’s Senior Foodie Diana Clarke reports that this is changing. Our beloved neck of the woods is finally getting the culinary recognition it truly deserves from city’s blogosphere. Click the Morningside Heights tag on the excellent […]
So many things have happened this week that it’s almost too much for us to process. There are changes everywhere, new things abound—all this excitement might be dangerous for Bwog’s heart health! Though we may have had a little fun with yesterday’s posts, we promise that today’s edition of Boringside Heights is totally legit. Feast […]
Bwog has been hanging around Joe quite a bit for the past few weeks. We’ve reviewed the vittles, invited you inside of our brain, and learned the true meaning of cupping. Below, Delicious Dessert Correspondent Diana Clarke reports on Joe’s newest addition, Robicelli’s cupcakes. Today’s flavors, Partida Tequila and Abuelita: I almost missed National Tequila […]
Dear Professors, We hear you. Sometimes we under-hear you (read: 9 a.m. class), but when we’re very lucky, we overhear you! And not just while you’re weighing in on important international issues; we also hear those cavalier comments you improvise in lecture. And since we like what we’ve heard lately so much, we thought we’d share: Shamus […]
Just when you thought Bwog couldn’t fawn over Joe any more, it turns out that The Best Cupcakes in NYC are arriving in NoCo on February 21st. Robicelli’s has no standing menu because they are constantly inventing new flavors, but here’s a sample of what one might expect: Butterbeer: Vanilla cake soaked with homemade butterscotch, […]
The Columbia location of Joe will be having a free “cupping” event today at 3 pm. After turning on our Safe Search settings, Bwog learned that a “cupping” is what coffee aficionados call a tasting event. So head over to the Northwest Corner building (everyone hates its name!) this afternoon for good coffee and bad […]
Bwog welcomes you inside our brain as we experience the new Joe… “It’s like Soho, except cleaner (for now). A Mac-lover’s refuge! But no outlets and they’ll probably need more tables. The chairs are surprisingly light (don’t weigh much). Flooded with sunlight with pick-up sticks molesting peripheral vision from above.” “Espresso drink sizes are 8 […]
