Menu for Fundraising Week at the Star and Crescent

Fundraising Week at the Star and Crescent

In the wake of the election, we at the S&C want to extend an invitation to anyone feeling scared, frustrated, or outright angry.  We have always endeavored to try and make the restaurant a safe, comfortable space that promotes dialogue and discussion over some tasty food.  But, it is more important now than ever to make a concerted effort to support the marginalized communities most affected by recent events.  Therefore, this week, we will be collecting donations for a different charity at every meal (of course, any and all contributions to these fundraisers are optional and left to your discretion). If you cannot make it to one of the week’s fundraisers, but would still like to contribute, we will post links to the sites where you can donate to the organizations directly.  We hope you will join us in breaking bread and spreading awareness about a few wonderful causes.

Descriptions of the organizations and their websites are listed at the bottom.

Hell Night at the Star and Crescent



Hey there spice fans,

We are happy to announce the Star and Crescent’s first ever Hell Night! Inspired by the famously fiery feasts of the Cambridge restaurant East Coast Grill, we hope to bring together Wesleyan’s lovers of spicy food for a truly special meal. While we guarantee we can challenge even the most seasoned heat-eaters with our spiciest options, there will be something for almost everyone (with that being said, all options will be at least mildly spicy, meaning there will not be non-spicy dining options). So if you like your food to have a kick, this is the meal for you!

“A Call For Meaningful Songs,” from Sulsky ’13

Zack Sulsky ’13 sends in a note about an intriguing songwriting project with a call for submissions. Protest singers, take note:

I am seeking submissions for a new album of original songs about meaningful things. Each songwriter who submits a recording will be asked to choose a charity that they would like their songs to fund. It is my hope that the songs themselves will relate to these charities, so we can contribute not only money, but also serious thought and discourse to the issues that we, the songwriters, care about.

The album will be released in early September, so songwriters have until the end of August to submit songs. Please contact me (zsulsky@wes) if you have any interest in participating. I am looking forward to hearing what this talented community of musicians comes up with.
