Use Your Off-Campus Flex for Bandaids and…Onion Rings?

The Off-Campus Flex machine rolls on, having just proudly announced two new conquests. According to Student Services’s Honey Sue Fishman (Bwog favorite Michael Novielli has unfortunately left the administration for a job in China), Riteaid and Village Pourhouse will soon accept Flex.  Riteaid, perhaps, holds out hope of stealing business from its better located, better […]

Flex – Now More Organic

Another chain from south of the triple digits border is now accepting Flex: according to Student Services, the Whole Foods at 97th and Columbus will also be accepting Flex by the start of the fall, following close on the heels of CVS (yes, that’s a Chicago Whole Foods in the picture – blame Flickr).

News Jews Can Use

Now that’s a rhyme. Really though, two items of interest to our Chosen friends have made it into the ol’ inbox (full disclosure: Bwog’s current editor is a Papist). First, the lost amongst you no longer have to rely on your wandering skills to find the nearest synagogue. Columbia students Ron Gejman and Jacob Andreas […]

Duane Reade to Use Flex After All?

A few days ago, we reported that the CVS on 96th Street and Amsterdam would be using Flex, partly at least because, according to Student Services, other neighborhood drugstores “have not responded to our invitations to join the program.” However, when Bwog checked in with Duane Reade’s manager, we learned that there may be hope […]

Use Flex At A Drugstore…20 Blocks Away

There’s now a drugstore option for your Flex points, but you’ll have to walk to 96th Street (aka “the ends of the Earth”) to use it. According to an email from Student Services’s Michael Novielli, the CVS at 96th and Amsterdam will be accepting Flex “by the end of July.”  As for other, closer options, […]

Off-Campus Flex: A Glimmer of Hot Latino Hope

Bwog has been alerted that Havana Central, bastion of all things edible and Cuban, will be accepting Flex starting in early June, which is great…if you plan to hang around a month after finals.

Supermarket You Never Go To Accepts Flex

Today, the wild world of off-campus Flex throws us another curveball: D’Agostino will accept your Flex dollars! D’Agostino, also known as that supermarket next to Westside on 110th and Broadway, will begin taking Flex in mid-May, conveninently enough when we’ll all be home, not using Flex.

Off-Campus Flex Rises From the Dead

The first good off-campus Flex news in a while: Wondee Siam V, the Thai restaurant right across the street from that other Thai restaurant on 108th and Amsterdam, is currently accepting Flex. This Flex development came “a few weeks earlier than planned” according to Michael Novelli, and is sure to delight all those who prefer […]

It’s Out There Somewhere…

Opportunities to use your parents’ hard earned flex off campus are dropping like flies. The Flex-eating disease has spread quickly, completely annihilating some, while putting others into a temporary or sporadic coma. But somewhere out there, far away from the carnage close to campus, courage can be found. The recurring flex mishaps didn’t stop Wondee […]

R.I.P. Off-Campus Flex: Amir’s and Samad’s Edition

Say goodbye to off-campus Flex at two of its previous locations: Samad’s Gourmet, and the dubiously sanitary Amir’s. Oh and one other thing: It’s not them, it’s you.

Week in Review: Mostly ROTC and Flex

Old themes came back to haunt us this week.  More of this, a little of that. About ROTC: New posters arrived. Professors supported ROTC on campus; professors explained their support; professors opposed ROTC on campus. Plus, a forum! About Flex: Bwog was pumped, we could charge our parents for Hungarian.  Oh no wait, we can […]
