So, how did Fat Tuesday treat you all? If you ate at Fountain or Clark, I’m betting pretty well! Since the Mardi Gras festivities were going on all day long, I decided to switch things up and try out the lunch options. As I said in my last post, many of the special, Cajun-style menu items contained one or more allergens, but I was still able to have a great allergy-friendly meal. Read More »

With a couple samples each day, visitors at on-campus eateries could discover a few new, wholesome items to order in the future. Read More »

The party starts when the dining halls open at 7:30 AM and lasts all the way until closing time. Awesome! Read More »

Picture this: You are seated on your futon, slouched forward with your computer rested on your lap. Netflix is playing as you repeatedly dig your hand into a bag of barbecue potato chips. As comforting as it is to have the glow of your favorite TV show reflected on your face along with the bits of barbecue flavoring coating the tips of your fingers, the satisfaction is fleeting and it can lead to major problems.

We’ve all heard the phrase “you are what you eat.”  Did you know that there are tons of foods offered on campus that are wholesome and made in-house?  House-smoked BBQ at Tuffy’s, chips and salsa at Los Lobos, ice cream sandwiches using Howling Cow?  The list goes on. Read More »
