Mackin’ on mac and cheese

Move aside, falafel-like mush. Students who ate at the Ivy Room tonight were pleasantly surprised by the latest addition to the Ivy Room’s standard vegetarian fare: a macaroni and cheese bar.  The chef behind this magic mixed together mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and other vegetables with pasta and various types of cheeses to make delicious-looking gooey creations.  If this option remains popular, mac and cheese will become a permanent fixture at the Ivy Room, and student workers will begin making it behind the counter.  Cheese louise–get the mac or we’ll be all bleu.

Oh hell no

A small message in today’s Morning Mail read (to our horror):

The Ivy Room, which used to open promptly at 7:30pm for evening service, will now open any time between 7:30pm and 7:45pm due to the increased number of items that need to be set up before the shift.

What?!  This certainly puts a chink out our falafel plans–now, only luck (and not diligence) will determine who is first in the line for that mushy vegetarian goodness (unless you want to risk getting there 25 minutes early)!  We think that this announcement might be part of a grand Ivy Room scheme to send frustrated Brunonians away to the marginally-less-crowded Blue Room.  BUDS, we call foul.
