Iron Chef @ Usdan

Due to ongoing budget cuts on campus, a few reality-TV-inspired activities such as Wesleyan Gladiators, The WesApprentice, and Survivor: The Tunnels have been cut from the program this year.* But everyone knows that the kitchen is where the drama’s at anyway, so lucky us- IRON CHEF IS BACK!! 091108_snails1

I’m going for the action: namecalling, overcooking, backstabbing, and suspense! You might also be interested in this basically being like Smell-O-Vision minus the TV part. Not to mention yummy Latin American cuisine as the theme of this competition. Mmmm delicioso!

From Stephanie Gomory ’10:

Come celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and Homecoming Weekend with our Hispanic Style Iron Chef Competition — co-sponsored by UCAB and La Casa.

3 teams will be competing — and it’s your job to cheer them on!
Come enjoy awesome chef skills, lots of free food, and a top-rate performance… all at Usdan!
Bring your friends and family.

Date: SUNDAY, November 8th

Time: 3pm

Place: Usdan Cafe

PS- Whoever guesses the secret ingredient correctly gets to go on a date with the host!**

O’Rourke’s hours of operation

From Katrina Smith-Mannschott ’08:

I went by O’Rourke’s this evening and found it closed (well, closing, Brian was still there). Brian asked if, since they are still having trouble getting internet going there (and thus are having trouble editing their webpage), the hours could be posted somewhere for students until he finished getting the site up and running.

So without further ado, O’Rourke’s hours of operation:

Monday: 5:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Tuesday: 5:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Wednesday: 5:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Thursday: 5:00 AM – 9:00 PM
Friday: 5:00 AM – 9:00 PM
Saturday: 5:00 AM – 9:00 PM
Sunday: 5:00 AM – 3:00 PM

My mouth is watering as I write this.

EDIT: On the days that they’re open until 9, O’Rourke’s stop seating people from 3-4:30 for a “sanity break.” Also, if you want to get the “Breakfast with Brian” special, where he just cooks you whatever he feels like and it’s delicious, you have to get there when he’s the one cooking. I was told the best time for that is around 8 or 9am. –Matt

UPDATED: S&C this week

Star and Crescent’s chef, Ryan, is sick this week, so S&C will be closed on Monday & Tuesday. The menu for Wednesday and Thursday has changed slightly, as well.

Another update: So, basically, Star & Crescent has been very closed on the whole this week. It should be up and running again next week. Yay! I look forward to more deliciousness.
