The Fanciest V-Day Suppers, from 80Lawn

Eightylawn is an informal eating club which meets semiregularly in the living room of 80 Lawn Avenue for completely home-cooked meals prepared by its resident/head chef. Each week everyone on the eightylawn mailing list is notified of the upcoming menu, and the first six respondents get to attend with a guest.

The thing is, eightylawn serves only things that are delicious. The Argus wrote an article about the chef and his meals last semester entitled “Student Hosts Fancy Suppers“, and I intentionally wrote nothing about it on Wesleying until now because I did not want any more competition to get on the guest list.

But this Sunday, eightylawn is planning an all-day culinary marathon, preparing and serving personalized meals for anyone on campus who contacts the chef in time. He will cook at your place, or in an accessible kitchen of your choice. The proceeds go towards Haiti relief, so I digress. You’re all invited. Should you choose to partake, this will be one of the most delicious meals you will have at Wesleyan. If you’re looking to impress someone this weekend, how are you going to beat this:
