Interested in eating local/healthy/fresh but never found the time/money/supplies? Want to put less effort into grocery shopping? Want to finally seem like you “have it all together” (i.e. talk about cooking)? Look no further: the Brown Market Shares Program has you covered yet again. But act quickly: sign ups for Fall 2015 close Sunday, September 13th at 11:59 pm.
BMSP provides a bundle of fresh, locally-grown produce to students, faculty, and staff each week from September 24th to December 3rd, excluding the week of Thanksgiving. A sample share might include carrots, apples, fennel, and even (the trendsetter) kale. Shares can be picked up right on campus at Hillel, and you can sign up for additional shares of dairy, meat, and eggs as well. For more information on signing up, pricing, and pick up, check out their FAQs. As the saying goes: “Buy a meal credit, and eat for a day. Buy a market share, and eat for the next ten weeks excluding the week of Thanksgiving.” The answer is clear: sign up today and don’t be left disappointed at the Ratty salad bar again.
Armed at Meehan Auditorium with nothing but a dry erase board and a bunch of awesome stickers, BlogDH pestered a bunch of accepted students on what they thought was the best thing about Brown. Some of the answers were sincere and anticipated, while others were strange and exciting. Not everyone we spoke with had decided on which school to attend, and a couple of them thought blogging was dumb and refused to engage with us.
After many hours on the hockey rink, (i.e. 90 minutes), here are a few of our favorites. Check out the complete collection here!
With #FLOCKAGATE behind us, and the thrill of the official artist announcement long over, BlogDH is excited to present an equally as important lineup: Main Green #EEEEATS. This year BCA #blessed us with seven local vendors to satisfy our cravings during Friday’s and Saturday’s concerts. Check out the rookies and old-timers below–nourish, HYDRATE and have fun!
1. Mexico – If you’re feeling spicy?
2. Taste of India – Just the thought of Indian food on a hot and sunny day makes me a bit nauseous, but to each his/her own.
3. Ben and Jerry’s –
4. Frenchy’s – Popcorn and such.
5. New England Lemonade – H2O is probably a better source of hydration, but a cup of sugary lemonade doesn’t sound horrible.
6. Duck and Bunny – Cupcakes. Beware of long lines…
7. Pizza Gourmet – I guess BCA was feeling fancy this year and opted out of Domino’s. I welcome this switch, but my stance against Domino’s is highly controversial.

Everyone’s been there: you’re painfully, paralyzingly hung over, and you NEED to get to the Ratty for some TLC/CT Crunch. Your laptop is an insurmountable 6 feet way on your desk, but you simply must know what’s at the Ratty. It’s a very specific, yet, for many Brown students, shockingly common crisis.
Enter the Ratty App, the creation of Nate Parrott ‘17.5. Now, iPhone users (sorry, Android et al. owners) can check what’s cooking at the school’s biggest dining hall on a very aesthetically pleasing interface. In addition, you can add the menu to your phone’s Notification Center to check whether or not they’re serving grilled cheese (Ed. – probably.) with a simple downward swipe of a finger.
Even the most hung over Brunonian can figure that one out. That is, unless your phone is dead, in which case God help you and your poor soul.
