As you may know, tonight is Philander’s Ball. There will be shuttles taking students to and from the event, but we think it would be a better move to rent a limo for the night. And we would like to suggest that you sip The Glass Slipper in your ballgown/tux on the ride there (note: the ride is quite short so you may have to sip quickly). Stay fancy and enjoy!

  • Chill a crystal champagne flute.
  • Fill the flute 3/4 with classy champagne.
  • Pour in a hefty splash of cranberry juice.
  • Add one tablespoon of essence of Hope Diamond.
  • Enjoy with a thin slice of Brie cheese on a cracker.

Hot New Menu Item at Wiggin Street Coffee


This odd ’50s themed image is meant to alert you that soup’s on!

In perfect conjunction with the heart pounding anxiety of finals week and the shuddering gloom of our current weather situation, Wiggin Street Coffee has just added a new and delicious item to their menu. They are now serving, in the words of a friend behind me in line, “Fancy, new winter soups!” For the foreseeable future, there will be a different flavored soup served at Wiggin Street each week. Last week featured a tomato and pesto soup with goat cheese that I heard was out of this world. The cafe is currently out of stock, so there is no soup available to all you soup lovers, but fear not, the soup should be back with surprising new flavors in a matter of days. Absence is supposed to make the heart grow fonder.

Do it tonight: “Three Presidents Reflect”

I know what you’re thinking; and no, Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton will not be at Kenyon College this evening. Yes, I was bummed too.  But Kenyon Presidents Philip H. Jordan Jr. (1975-95), Robert A. Oden Jr. (1995-2002) and the one and only S. Georgia Nugent (2003-present) will participate in a panel discussion tonight at the fancy Gund Gallery.  According to the latest “Student-Info” email, “The panelists will respond to questions from the moderator, News Director Mark Ellis, and from the audience.  A reception will follow.” FANCY!

  • When: Tonight, 7:30 p.m.
  • Where: Community Foundation Theater, Graham Gund Gallery
