With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
The good people at West Side Rag compiled an interactive map of the 32 openings and closings that have gone down in the Upper West Side over the course of the last month. Sadly, the only two newcomers this map cuts off above 96th street, thus the only two newcomers listed within 20 blocks of the 116th gates […]
Maoz is officially open. Having attracted a flurry of media attention, Bwog joined the ranks of the falafel fiends whose steady flow kept the joint buzzing during lunch hour its first day in the new 111th St location. The premise is simple: choose a form of falafel, either in a pita (whole wheat or white), […]
Several tipsters noted last night that the student resource par excellence known as CULPA was down. But after fretting over how we’d pick the easiest classes next semester, we were relieved to learn that CULPA 3.0 (as its staff calls the new version) is now online. What’s new, you ask? Basically, it’s the same CULPA […]
For the sake of your children’s legacy admissions, donate! CC brother, can you spare a dean? Gay folks for fighting Gay folks for loving Old-time religion it’s not No, you’re not in prison, just a Barnard res hall Plus: Spec adds new stuff!
A big Bwog welcome to C-Spot, “a new erotic review produced by Columbia students,” which we delightedly noticed on stands yesterday. This campus has been bereft of an honest-to-god sex magazine since the short life of Outlet–which never even ended up in print, and is sadly no longer available online–as has Harvard, whose flash-in-the-pan H-Bomb […]
Oh what do you know, this Saturday regrettable-costume emporium Ricky’s opened. And just in time for you to buy something special for Halloween. This afternoon, Bwog wandered inside the rabbit hole. Join us, as we try to make sense of this thing.
New parks! New restaurants! The future of Manhattanville organizing! Bwogger-about-town Lydia DePillis reports (with apologies for the sub-par cell phone photos). It’s taken 20 years and $20 million, and the Harlem Piers waterfront park still isn’t quite open. But a troupe of students got a surprise sneak peek today, as part of a tour featuring […]
But that’s being a bit cynical, now isn’t it? Besides, New York Magazine says that Community Food and Juice, which replaced the vacated Nacho’s Kitchen (sorry, freshies), has delicious seven-grain waffles with “locally sourced seasonal ingredients.” Healthy, seasonal, local–just like a waffle should be. (As an aside: We’d love to trust this description–really we would–but […]
