Confused by the hordes of students crowding Wriston as you were leaving the Ratty today? Unsure as to why everyone you saw was smiling so much they were nearly in tears? Today the 2015 Class Board organized Super Heavy Petting on Wriston Quad, complete with bunnies, chicks, pigs, and a goat in a diaper. Check out the pictures of our furry friends below.
Not only did Sandy Cohen totally annihilate all the other ninjas, he also cancelled classes tomorrow. Hoorah!
We know it’s been a long week. We also know it’s just Tuesday — we don’t judge. Luckily, today will be a good day. Why? Because it’s FREE CONE DAY AT BEN & JERRY’S! If you’re still bummed because you missed IHOP’s National Pancake Day, fear not: you don’t need a Zipcar to enjoy this sweet deal. Head over to the
dangerously close convenient Ben & Jerry’s scoop shop on Meeting St. anytime today from noon to 8:00 p.m. for your free cone.
If you’re really intense about your free ice cream, go to our local shop’s website to check out the selection of flavors available to plan strategically. Ben & Jerry’s recently launched a Greek frozen yogurt line, and while it might be too adventurous, it’s still free. It’s all about the big picture, people.
If you’re reading this during class,
get off the Internet start devising your game plan now. Last year’s line got pretty cray pretty fast, so plan accordingly. Also, be respectful of those around you and don’t cut in line. It’s not in the spirit of free ice cream. Spread the love, it’s the Ben & Jerry’s way.
It’s Spicy Manhattan time, ladies & gents. Sushi’s back at the Blue Room. It’s gonna be a good weekend…

Yes. You read that right. Today is World Nutella Day. So whether you are in need of some Super Bowl snacks or just want to drown your sorrows in the fact that you only have 9 days to find a man before Valentine’s Day, this holiday is for you. We would like to share some delicious recipes with you to celebrate this most miraculous of days.
Ever had a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich courtesy of the V-Dub PB&J bar? Amazing. Especially if you put bananas on it. Nothing could make that better, right? Wrong. Here is the best combination of PB&N – peanut butter and nutella cookies!
For the baking challenged among us (myself included), we have Nutella croissants. All you need to do is put a spoonful of Nutella in some pre-made dough, roll them up, and put them in the oven! More ideas after the jump! [Read more →]
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT IS BACK!!!
After four and a half years of meaningless back-and-forth from cast members (we’re looking at you, Michael Cera, you mopey little bitch), series creator Mitch Hurwitz today announced his intentions to go ahead with not only a feature-length Arrested Development film, but also a Season Four.

Shopping period is over and the Ratty menu already seems repetitive, which means that the newness of the school year is finally wearing off – but Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, starts this Wednesday night. Brown RISD Hillel has events planned for the duration of the holiday, the first (and sweetest) of which begins this morning.
Stop by the Hillel table on the Main Green today, tomorrow, or Wednesday between 11am and 2pm to hear the shofar and enjoy apples and honey, traditionally eaten to symbolize hope for a sweet new year. You can also send HoneyGrams, cards with sticks of honey attached, to anyone on campus (but let’s face it, there’s always going to be someone who turns receiving them into a popularity contest).
You don’t have to be Jewish to grab some apple slices or send a HoneyGram, and they’re free, and fruit is healthy – so you really have no excuse!
The Ratty really likes its cupcakes. Today, it’s really outdone itself with a little number known as the “Cupcake Extravaganza.” Knowing that most of you won’t arrive for lunch until 12, here’s a little preview of what you’re in for.
Welcome to Le Hotel Ratty. Would you like champagne with your cupcake?

Tired of Starbucks? Check out this new fixture on Thayer. It’s parked right in front of Watson, making its debut as the newest eatery on wheels. It’s only open until 4:00 pm, but don’t worry! It’ll be back tomorrow morning around 7:00 am. Hurry up and get your chai latte! Seven Stars pastries will be featured on the menu starting next week.
