10 o’clock List: How to Not Lose the Deli Again

deli1

The Gambier Deli is back in action, baby, and we all know what that means. We’ve got eggs. We’ve got some hot sammies. We’ve got that nice bearded man who works/lives there, and yesterday when I was treating myself to brunch he saw me and said, “Hey buddy, long time, how’s it going?” and I felt truly validated for the first time in my life.

Where to Find a Stephen

WHERE'S STEPHEN

Last weekend, our writer Tyler Raso put dozens of Thrill headlines into a bot, and then forced the bot, against its and our will, to generate content for us. Every day this week, one article on the site will be one of the prompts the bot generated. These are our stories.

 

So this one was really tough to figure out, but, I was tasked with figuring out where to find a Stephen. Did I succeed? Watch the video below to find out:

Bob has been manning the dessert station in Peirce since mid-January of 2018 (far shorter than it might seem) and he’s quickly cultivated wonderful, friendly relationships with many Kenyon students. Whether or not you’re someone who frequents the desserts, you know about Old Bob.
