A Wild Ride: Domino’s Driver Turned Uber for A Night

og-image

The Domino’s man looked lonely.

The night of PEEPs Halloween, I made my way out of Old Kenyon and through the crowd of smoke and people into the mostly empty parking lot beside the building. I was still a little bit disoriented, my ears were ringing and my glasses were still fogged a bit, and in my efforts to try and find the direction of Middle Path from the back of Old K, I saw the glow of the Domino’s sign on top of a delivery car. I went up to the pizza guy, and I made sure that he wasn’t white. If he was, I would’ve completely abandoned this idea, but he wasn’t, so I soldiered on.

As if the graveyard of empty pizza boxes I store underneath my XL twin bed frame needed any new corpses, Domino’s has finally decided to jump on the K-Card bandwagon. Beginning right the heck now, you can order hot, fresh, flavor-blasted Domino’s pizzas (cooked especially for you in the corporation’s Mount Vernon location) using that weird plastic rectangle you scan on your dorm’s card reader each and every night.

The steps to achieve Domino’s-Induced PizzaBliss™ were sent out via email earlier today. According to Mark Kohlman, the process goes a little something like this:

1. Enter your address
2. Select your desired food items
3. Go to Checkout
the next couple of steps are critical
4.  Enter your K-card # in the box labeled:  DELIVERY INSTRUCTIONS
5.  Select Payment Information:  PAY WITH CASH UPON DELIVERY (you won’t have to pay with cash upon delivery if you entered you K-card # as instructed in #4.
6. Select Place Order
7. Wait
8. Enjoy your food
Sound simple? It is! Happy eating, folks.

Blog Off: Preston ’17 vs Potter ’17

We like to stay pretty competitive here at The Thrill, and a Blog Off is one way we can definitively prove that one of us is objectively a better blogger (dare we say, a better person).  So we leave it to you, the reader, to decide in a blind taste test who is really better as we square off on various topics. This time around, we have Gracie Potter ‘17 and Natasha Preston ‘17, two juniors battling it out RE: Papa John’s vs. Domino’s. Who will come out on top? Only you can decide.

Blogger A:

Let’s take a page out of Huey Lewis and the News’s book and go “back in ti-eeem. You’re hosting your first real sleepover, a thoroughly carpeted affair involving karaoke, board games and the heavy scent of Smacker’s flavored lip gloss. Your parents are in rare form; they haven’t bothered you since they whisked away your friends’ boots and coats and returned with a full bowl of Lay’s sour cream and onion chips. Your friends have already marvelled at your finished basement, and they’ve chosen their respective sleeping territories without kicking up much of a fuss in the process. This is going great, your tiny, pea-sized tweenage brain thinks. I could really be somebody after this.

For the purposes of this guide, we will be defining “late night food” as food available for delivery after 8 p.m., when Peirce closes on every night except Saturday.

With the official closing of Nite Bites for the semester, we turn to other options for night time noshing. We’ve reviewed the pizzas before, but this list offers no judgement, just information. Here is a list of eateries that deliver to Kenyon, in ascending order of lateness. Continue reading

The Definitive Guide to Deliverable Pizza in Gambier

Which delivery pizza is the best? The Thrill investigates… (via about.com)

Pizza, contrary to to the belief of the editors at the New York Times Magazine, is a food of the gods. Deliverable pizza is the food of the gods. Unfortunately, not all pizza places deliver and even those that do deliver don’t always deliver, if you know what we mean. The single pie delivery pizza options in Gambier are slim pickings, but we’ve reviewed the options (a plain pie from Domino’s, Papa John’s, Dirko’s and the Cove) and compiled both a ranking and a taste/cost profile of each pie.

Nixon and Zhou both loved a good atypical toast (via WikiMedia Commons)

 February is a make it or break it kind of month. At this point in the year, you either resign yourself to watching videos of cats shredding toilet paper on Youtube, or you  get your game face on– that is, your pre-game face. Drinking in the confines of your dungeon of a dorm room can certainly be monotonous, but there are ways to fix this. For example, toasts. A pre-gulp toast makes drinking any variety of liquid more exciting. HOWEVER, we’re far beyond the jaded bottoms up! or even worse, cheers! (what are you a mid-century aristocrat?). Time to let the creative juices flow–that’s right–we’re here with some straight-up juicy ideas for atypical toasts. Sit your nether-regions down and pick your glasses up — get ready to make the most(s) out of your toasts.
