Chow Down Brown: Exam period updates!

It’s BAAACK!

Brown Dining Services has a few tricks up its sleeve to keep us chugging along through finals. We’ve learned that proper study fuel is extremely important, so seize every delicious opportunity and keep that brain working.

Working into the wee hours of the night? From now until the end of exams, the Rock and Friedman Cafés are offering free coffee at closing until it’s gone. The Rock Café will be open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.–10 p.m., and Saturdays from 2–10 p.m. For those early risers during the exam period, both the Ratty and the Blue Room will be open at 7 a.m.

Stuffed French toast at Jo’s has made its epic return. Monday through Friday for the next two weeks, the Three Burner station at Jo’s is going to be serving up this campus favorite that’s “cooked in the pan with a lump of butter, the way French toast should be done,” according to Aaron Fitzsenry. If that doesn’t sound indulgent enough, assorted toppings like mango and white chocolate chips will be available to add as well.

If that wasn’t enough to send you running down Thayer Street to Jo’s, here are some other fancy, new specials to look out for:

  • A crepe station that will offer such varieties as Strawberry Fields (macerated strawberries, strawberry preserves, mascarpone), the New Elvis  (banana, Nutella, white chocolate chips), the Crepe Monsieur (prosciutto and swiss), and Untitled but Good (asparagus, mushrooms, goat cheese crumbles) served alongside fresh, seasonal sliced fruits.
  • A Design-Your-Own risotto bar.
  • “Epicurean” Waffle Fries (spicy chicken will be a topping).

So what are you waiting for? Use up those last meal credits, eat well, and study hard.
