Go Get a FREE Cupcake at Swings for Karen’s Birthday

Hey! Did you know that today is Karen Kaffen-Polascik‘s 50th birthday?? You might recognize Karen as a familiar face at WesWings or the Red & Black Cafe, where she is the co-owner along with Ed Thorndike ’89.

Yesterday, Ed tipped us off to a surprise cupcake food truck that would be coming to Swings during lunch hours today just for the occasion. The cupcakes are courtesy of WesWings, so stop by before the truck leaves and wish Karen (and her twin sister) a happy 50th!!!! Read past the jump for some quality pics of Karen:


And here are some tweets from Swings about the occasion:

The folks at Swings created a video with birthday wished from students, staff, alumni, and Michael Roth ’78:
