Boringside: Bernheim And Schwartz’s Sign Went Up

Havana Central, rest in peace. The West End, rest in peace. Bernheim and Schwartz, the new restaurant and beer hall opening up on Broadway looks almost done from the exterior; it has new sidewalk, a new sign, and has started to enclose its outdoor seating area. The restaurant is hiring, which is good because we […]

VShow Preview Review #119

The evening began informally with Olivia Harris, CC ’14, jiving around the small stage, which was enough to put any audience member in a good mood.  She sassily sang along to the classic songs the band was playing, making us wish we could have heard more of her voice later on in the preview.  When the full cast […]

Things You Should Pretend You Already Knew

Sometimes, fresh-people, in a seminar, or at a party, someone will reference something that used to exist and doesn’t anymore, and you will have to nod your head or laugh knowingly. Ah yes, Morningside is like, so gentrified, you will say. We asked alumni of The Blue and White and Bwog for places, events, and […]

A Last Booze-Soaked Night With Your Classmates

The shadowy group only known as “Senior Underground” has sent Bwog a message (by carrier pigeon, of course) that there will be a senior class gathering tonight at the West End to celebrate “our last night at Columbia.” Join your friends, and try not to send any texts you’ll regret.

A Varsity Show Exorcise

The cast of the 115th Varsity Show entered to raucous applause from the crowd of 100 packed into the back room of the West End (as it will forever remain, at least for V-Show purposes). Our host for the evening was this year’s narrative patriarch, retiring Dean Austin Quigley, caught up in reading his own […]

CCSC: LiveBwogging The Finale!

UPDATE 8:38 PM: Alidad informed Bwog that he received a text message that he lost. However, Krebs has not received a text informing him that he won. Stand by.

Bwog Party Recap: Sifting Through the Debris

Last night, a bunch of Bwog’s closest friends met up at Havana “West End” Central to make merry and make fools out of themselves in this old blog’s honor. While the antics remained slightly more subdued than we would have wanted, drunken mingling hit an all-time high. This was some hardcore mingling, man. And of course, we […]

9:00 PM! BWOG TURNS ONE! THE WEST END! With that Tourettically over with, a quick self-absorbed indulgence. The Bwog started as a mere twinkle in the eye of the staff of The Blue and White.

HOLY SHIT BWOG TURNS ONE

On Februrary 17th, 2006, we had a giant party at Mona to celebrate the launch of BW‘s quirky younger brother, the Bwog. You, at least, are still reading our little foray into new media, so you might as well help us celebrate our survival one year later. We were going to have it at Mona […]

Bwog Goes Beat

We got an inside sneak peak of the West End’s newly Cubanized interior earlier tonight when it opened its doors for the now-annual celebration of Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and other Columbia-affiliated Beats, culminating in an enthusiastic reading of Ginsberg’s Howl. For an event devoted to subversive young artists, the ‘Stend’s new digs, not to […]

Breaking News: West End Aesthetically Defiled!

Carly Hoogendyk sends in these photos of the recent West End (er…whoops, “Havana Central at the West End”) facade unveiling with extreme consternation. “It was just too visceral an experience seeing it for the first time that…oh god,” she writes. “Just bring back the scaffolding.” Bwog is all for the colorful vibrancy of Cuba and […]
