Bwog’s Westside Bureau Chief, Diana Clarke, imagines a dialogue between herself and her new Westside tee. A recent trip downtown took me to the Westside on Fourteenth Street, where I were startled into new appreciation for the market by seeing it out of context (as it happens, you can only get 3 am grapes at […]
Just as an idyllic landscape metamorphoses with the passing of the seasons, some of our most familiar haunts take on new character and exoticism in deepest night.

Strawberry, egg white, mozzarella, olive, and sunflower seed salad after class? Half a pound of brie at 3 am? Crispy flatbreads for all occasions? It could only be Westside, friend of the munchies late night snackers and fruit fiends alike. Akin to our Getting to Know series, each week, Bwog will give you a chance […]

Bwog’s Japanese Culture in Small, Enclosed Units Specialist Liz Naiden has evaluated the sushi of Morningside, and she has some surprising results.

After saving so much cash earlier today, Bwog thought to splurge a little. To reward ourselves after a rigorous day of studying, Bwog was in the mood for something warm and hearty.
