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.
“Some say The Heights will end in fire / Some say in ice. / From what we’ve tasted of desire / Bwog holds with those who favor fire.” Either way, The Heights is currently out of the picture for freshmen trying to get by without a fake, and for anyone who wants a delicious marg. 1020 started scanning this […]
Rejoice, dear readers, because your favorite combination of food reviews and shock porn references, 2Girls1Snack, is back! In this edition, intrepid snackers Alexandra Eynon and Alison Herman leave no avocado pit unturned in their tireless quest for Morningside’s most holy guacamole. Tacqueria y Fonda $7.50 with chips. Tacqueria y Fonda’s guacamole was by far the […]
We’ve spent the past few days observing the freshfolk and questioning their NSOP theme—now we get a chance to hear from them. Sweet ’16er S.T. shares the following firsthand account of what it’s really like out there. We clutch our CUIDs and giggle as we walk past the security guard at East Campus. We garner a […]
Graduation may be over for this year, but there are still some honors left to be given! Our very own The Heights, home of the infamous $5 marg, earned a spot on Gothamist’s “7 Best Rooftop Bars in NYC.” While we’re not exactly sure how—other list-toppers (like Le Bain) are swankier—we’ll drink to it. […]
Ever had twenty-five Heights margaritas in one night? Bwog has, cumulatively. Kicking Bacchaweekend off right, the brave among us hit early happy hour last Thursday… and stayed there well into the next one. It was awkwardly empty, it was frighteningly crowded. It was strangely sober, it was blackout drunk. But most of all, it was […]
Be on the lookout for the February issue of The Blue & White, coming to campus this week. In the meantime, Bwog will again honor our heritage/amorous affair with our mother magazine by posting features from the upcoming issue. Such treats include a visit to the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, an investigation into Columbia’s animal testing practices, […]
Update: One of Spec’s reporters caught up with Anna and learned she was first put on notice two weeks ago, after she returned a confiscated fake ID to a student for $40, but the final straw came last Monday, when she took a shot from the bar after a long shift, which The Heights strictly […]
We know you’ve been waiting a long time for Bwog to finally weigh in on the “newcomer.” But really, the question of the best burger in Morningside is so much more complex than a petty squabble between Five Guys and Mel’s. Thus, we’ve taken our time to really get our shit together. Burgers are complicated. […]
We hear Campo has been a real shitshow (always the fresh-person word of choice to describe anything) the last few nights. Explore your other options, limited as they may be, with bar trading cards, originally posted in last year’s Orientation Blue & White. Have fun post-gaming your Intrepid party! Illustrations by Stephen Davan. Click to […]
Welcome back to the Best of series in which Bwog analyzes the best in a category of chosen food product! There are few things that are as much fun and as thirst-quenching as a margarita. And after a weekend of being nice to your parents or studying for midterms, there are few things as much […]
Mayyyyybe Bloomberg will run for reelection Gamers: beware of exceeding University bandwidth caps, but only sometimes. In fact, for most of the things you’ll be doing online, you will be fine. Perhaps the University Senate is a place where debate within the University should take place. As opposed to debating with kitchen knives. Wait a […]
Gawker is linking to Vanity Fair‘s just released “All Access Summer Guide,” which features the city’s best beaches, bars, restaurants, and pools. Second on VF‘s list of the Best Bars for Drinking Under the Stars? None other than everyone’s favorite backup for when 1020 is just too crowded, the Heights. “Columbia students drink their cares […]
With Mona and Roadhouse closed down, the Morningside bar scene just got a little thinner. But there’s still stuff out there (MOST OF ALL THE WEST END [a.k.a. “Havana Central”] WHERE YOU’RE COMING FOR THE BWOG PARTY TONIGHT) and we thought it was time to re-run Addison Anderson’s gargantuan bar crawl from our Orientation 2006 […]
