The first installment of The Hunger Games trilogy premiered last night in LA. In case you’ve been living under a rock, the movie franchise is kind of a big deal. Here’s an even more exciting tidbit of information: one of the film’s producers was a Brown semiotics concentrator! Nina Jacobson ’87 was recently interviewed by Brown Alumni Mag, and the publication tweeted the article earlier today in honor of yesterday’s premiere. Alas, there was no College Hill pre-screening (that we know of…), so you’ll have to wait until March 23rd to don your Team Peeta/Team Gale shirts.
Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 12/6
Ratty: Beef Tacos, Mexican Style Rice, Chicken Fajitas, Curried Lentil Pancakes, Brownies
V-Dub: Grits Soufflé, Cauliflower Au Gratin, Black Bean and Corn Stew, Brownies
Advantage: Ratty. We aren't sure what a grits soufflé is, but it doesn't matter. Taco Tuesday takes the W easy.
Ratty: Au Gratin Potatoes, Calypso Roasted Pork Loins, Three Bean Lasagna, Pumpkin Pie
V-Dub: Thai Basil Pork Stir Fry, Rotisserie Style Chicken, Creamy Rosemary Polenta, Pumpkin Pie
Advantage: Tie. Everything except the pumpkin pie is irrelevant, and you can get that at either eatery. Thanksgiving never ends.
