We know, you’re devastated, and need time to mourn. But please forgive us this small commemoration, a look back at all the moments Tasti and Bwog have had together, in the last post until something else actually happens (we promise!). In the beginning, a pair of intrepid freshwomen embarked on a three-day Tasti-only diet, to […]
Suggesting that frozen-yogurt customers are perhaps less than loyal, Tasti D-Lite experienced a 75% decline in sales in the first semester before abruptly departing campus this past Friday. Was it off-campus flex? The introduction of (more popular) Pinkberry? The economy? We’ll probably never know. As for what would go in its place, Columbia Dining Services […]
Last night, Bwog reported on the shocking disappearance of the Tasti D-Lite kiosk from Lerner. It turns out that the departure was as sudden as our photo suggested. According to Michael Novielli of Student Auxiliary and Business Services: “Dining Services was notified on Friday, January 16 that Tasti-D-Lite would be permanently closing its location on […]
Tasti D-Lite has served its last four-ounce cup of sweetened dairy-based frozen dessert substance on the fifth fourth floor of Lerner. Bwog discovered the d-parted D-Lite kiosk Monday night, just as employees were giving the area a final sweeping. No word yet on why Tasti has vanished from Lerner, but Bwog will doggedly track down […]
The battle for frozen yogurt dominance is one that has savagely torn through Morningside since Pinkberry’s arrival in the summer of 2007. Today, we offer a comprehensive look at Columbia’s bitter — well, sweet — rivals in hopes of settling this thing once and for all. (Full disclosure: Your Bwog editor went on a rather […]
In a bold real estate move, the likes of which fair Morningside hasn’t seen since Pinkberry’s merciless eclipse of Tasti D-Lite, a restaurant called Empanadas Joe’s has opened a few blocks down from Havana Central and just mere stores away from Chipotle, igniting a battle of Latin-influenced Broadway establishments. The empanada retailer will be taking […]
The scene: Tasti D-Lite in Lerner. Yesterday, mid-afternoon. Girl 1: So in my class, this guy was like laughing when the professor was talking about like, women and misogyny. Girl 2: That’s so ridiculous. Girl 1: And then he tried to flirt with me after class and I was like, “I’m not going to flirt […]
The arrival of Pinkberry is imminent, so Bwog took to the fourth floor of Lerner to find out how Columbia’s most convenient froyo chain is handling the news. Bwog: Hey, can I ask you a question. Elizabeth, Tasti employee: Sure. Bwog: What do you think about the fact that Pinkberry is opening down the street? […]
The 2006-07 school year has contained multitudes. In fact, it may just be the most eventful year Columbia’s had since… well, the year before. Remember Matthew Fox? The Chung-Diamond “scandal”? “Don’t Be a Pussy”? “Epilogue to Our Crime & Punishment: A Petition“? Bwog certainly does, so step into the Wayback machine – you’re about to […]
It’s like Columbia Day over on Manhattan’s favorite gossip site. Now we’re elitist for complaining? (oh, and Ivygate‘s got video). Tasti rival moves in! Bwog misses Soupman. We’ve been trying to avoid this one, but since so many of you seem to think it’s newsworthy (seriously, stop e-mailing us about it), Matt Sanchez has been […]
In the very public Cafe 212: Girl A: Can you even get a urinary tract infection from rough sex? Girl B: I think so, if you don’t clean yourself up afterward. And in Tasti D-Lite, dessert-prime time: Girl C: (said with a certain amount of disgust) She’s going to an Ivy Singles Ball. Girl D: […]
Intrepid Bwog correspondents Juli Weiner and Emily Cheesman have come to the end of their three day foray into Tasti purgatory! Here is their final report. Words lose their meaning in the face of the totally unique combination of hunger and irritability brought on by three days of Tasti D (how very hateful that slang […]
Pushing the limits of human endurance, intrepid Bwog correspondents Emily Cheesman and Juli Weiner have embarked on a three day Tasti D. diet. The rules: liquids only (water, juice, coffee) besides Tasti, at least two Tasti “meals” per day, and all food must be consumed in the Tasti Lounge. Their second report follows. Dear Tasti, […]

Man oh man, food and drink are awesome! We present you with the following. Overheard outside Tasti D-Lite: Boy: So, what exactly is “O’Tasti?” Employee: I don’t fucking know. Boy: I’ll take a large! And, in Ruggles: Person 1: Why do wine coolers even exist? Person 2: So people over 40 can get drunk while […]
