Looking for the perfect holdiay pick me up? Head to the Holiday Party at Andrews happening from now until 7 p.m! Thanks to Assistant Manager, Bobby Noyes, and the other culinary geniuses of Brown University Dining Services, you’ll be amazed by the delicious foods and beautiful holiday displays. The event even includes a live mariachi band made of students working for BUDS.

This event is not to be missed. The menu is prix-fixe; for two meal credits, you can indulge yourself in all of your favorite holiday treats. The menu includes Garlic & Rosemary Rubbed Beef Tenderloin and Chili Orange Glazed Pork Tenderloin in the carving station. For sides: Lobster & Shrimp Mac n’ Cheese, Smashed Red Bliss Potatoes, Asian Green Bean Casserole, Balsamic Roasted Beets, Steamed Asparagus, Shaved Fennel Slaw, Roasted Brussels Sprout Salad, and Warm Biscuits with a delicious whipped chai butter.

And finally, the desserts: Gingerbread and Sugar Cookies, Candy Canes, Double Chocolate Peppermint Bars, Bananas Foster, and Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows. If you are vegetarian, the prix-fixe is only one meal credit.

Calling all meal credits

There are plenty of reasons to be stressed at the end of a semester and BlogDH is here to help.

Do you have two essays due on the same day? Ask for an extension. Boom.

Not sure what you’re taking next semester? We’ve practically filled your cart for you both at Brown and RISD. Boom.

Ran out of meal credits OR have way too many meal credits? Give and get them here! BOOM!

Use this Facebook event to connect with people who need or have too many meal credits! + you’ll get to meet some great new people at Brown along the way. 

 


Brother, can you spare a meal cred?

Let’s face it: working meal plan can be like playing Russian Roulette. Either you dropped plan sizes and are wondering how the hell you’re going to make it through finals, or you overestimated and have enough meal credits to feed not just your unit, but all of Keeney.

A student designed solution has emerged in the form of a Facebook group already exceeding 100 members.

Here’s how it works:

1.People with too many meal credits, post:
a) The time that you normally eat dinner
b) Whether you prefer The Gate or Josiah’s
(If you have guest credits, you can also put the Ratty or V-Dub)
c) Something you enjoy talking about.

2.People with not enough meal credits, look at the posts and send people messages with your availability (according to the times and places already posted), and you favorite word.

3.Enjoy the food and community!

The description is quick to note that this is not a dating website, but we all know that the route to one’s heart is through the stomach. And when the final’s blues hit, that road is paved with Ivy Room falafel and late night munchies at Jo’s.

Share the love and share the meal credits. It’s the power of Dining Services at work.
