Have you ever woken up on a Saturday morning to a bunch of missed calls and texts threatening, “if u don’t answer I will have to go run my other deliveries and wont be back for 30-40 minutes” — or something along those lines — from various (740) numbers? Do you have a lot of feelings about ranch dressing? Is it a weekend night in Gambier and you’re just…tryna? Chances are you’re already familiar with this entry in the Klexicon: the Cove.
The Cove (The Kove) 1. n. — The Gambier Grill and Pizza, a bar and restaurant that offers an array of fried appetizers, burgers, salads, pizza — for pick-up, delivery, or eating in-house — and alcohol; requires two forms of identification to enter around Cove o’clock (see iterations). 2. v. — to Cove: to go to or order food from the Cove.
- Iterations: “Cove o’clock” — the time of any given Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday night when partiers head to the Cove.
Kenyon Kontext: “When I visited as a prospie, my parents and I looked up places to eat in town and thought the Gambier Grill sounded pretty good. Little did we know, the Gambier Grill is the Cove.”
