What’s Up With Usdan Receipts?


Apparently there’s a Usdan receipt conspiracy. I’ve been hearing around campus lately that the Marketplace has been failing to give receipts to students, most notably at brunch. Maybe it’s deliberate, or maybe it’s a minor slip-up. Either way, at this point in the semester, most of us are dangerously low on meals or points (or maybe both), and getting our receipts is quite helpful. So I set out to investigate the matter.

For one, this required actually going to Usdan, which I barely do. But I Usdan-ed religiously this week, motivated by the quest to get to the bottom of this receipt dilemma.

Unitarian Universalist Brunch!

uu-chalice-stained-glass-windowFrom Ben Zucker ’15:

Q: Why did the Unitarian Universalist cross the road?

A: To support the chicken in its free and responsible search for truth and meaning.

If you’re Unitarian Universalist, interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism, or just want to hang out with fun UUs, come have brunch with us (pasta and vegetables from First & Last Tavern)!

We’ll give an overview of this non-creedal religion, have some introductions and a check-in, and best of all enjoy the wonderfully comfortable library of the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life. All are welcome.

Date: Sunday, September 14
Time: 12-1:30 PM
Place: Office Of Religious & Spiritual Life (169 High St)

Brunch, Liveblogged

Good morning, wonderful people of Wesleyan! Nothin quite takes the edge off of a night of debauchery like a Usdan brunch, amirite? For us Wesleying-ers, however, the surest hangover cure is a liveblog. So we thought, why not combine the two? In the vein of Syed and pyrotechnics’ recent excursion into the real world, I’ll be joined today by many of our newest Wesleying personalities (many of whom I’ll have as much trouble identifying in real life as you do), ready for whatever comes of this crazy Sunday morning.

Hickeys of Brunch

Triggadale resident Penina Kessler ’15, along with G D-S ’15, just created a Wesleyan-specific tumblr called Hickeys of Brunch. Says Penina of her Usdan voyeurism:

It’s a project for my Human Sexuality Psych 235 class–I’m tracking fluctuations in season and weekend. Everyone is asked before their picture is taken and allowed to approve the picture before it’s uploaded.

To help Penina on her way to a liberal arts degree, you can probably e-mail her with pics of your bruised neck or find her scoping people’s necks out with her camera phone during Usdan brunch. More hickeys after the jump.

Unofficial Orientation Series: Middletown Eateries, Part 1

Note: This is by no means an exhaustive list of eating options in Middletown. Many of the restaurants we missed will be featured in a second installment, but feel free to add your own mentions in the comments.

To all the incoming students of Orientation 2012: if you think you are landing in the middle of nowhere, trust me—that is not the case. This is especially true on the culinary side of things, because Middletown is home to many fabulous restaurants. In light of this, we are providing you with a two-part list of some of Wesleyan students’ favorite places to eat in Middletown. Be forewarned, though: this is a (very) incomplete list. See more of Part 1 of this food series after the jump!
