Welcome Class of 2019

11227924_10153843436476029_1177652049678180620_nYou’re almost here!  We know you have questions. “What’s a pail?  Tell me about cookie dough.” Good news, we have answers.  And we will be providing them over the upcoming weeks.

The most important thing you can do right now is connect with us.

Over the next few weeks we will provide you with answers like

  • “Yes, we do take points.  You can use your meal plan points at both WesWings and the Red & Black Cafe.”
  • “The Red & Black Cafe is located in the back corner of Broad St. Books, the campus bookstore at 45 Broad St.  Yes, you can use your meal plan points at the cafe.”
  • “WesWings is located in the lower rear level at 156 High St.  Yes, you can use your points there too”
  • “Sorry, you can’t use your block meals.  That’s why most students opt for the plan with the most points.”
  • “Yes, it’s raw.  Yes, you can eat it.”
  • “Yes, were are hiring.  Apply on our Website”
  • “We recommend over easy, but a scrambled pail is good too.”

Don’t be shy.  Feel free to contact us through any of our social media accounts.  See you in September.

All Pails, All The Time

pailIf you have ever stopped in for one of our weekend brunches, you’ve probably had a pail.  They’ve become quite popular as a recent snap chat photo clearly shows.  Scrambled, over easy, poached, bacon, avocado, hollandaise the choices are endless.

We have had requests to offer the pail on different days as well as dinner pails like the mashed potato pail or the notorious Pail-A-Palooza.

After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to serve all of our menu items in a pail.  Cheeseburger? In a pail.  Buffalo wings? In a pail. Salads in pails.  Eggplant Parmigiana in pails. Soup in pails.  Chicken Tender Wraps in pails.  You get the idea.

For those of you who either are not fans of the breakfast pail or prefer your Penne Vodka on a plate, you’ll adjust.

While some would rather not have their entire meal in one container the benefits are many.

  • No longer do we have to worry if your meal “was supposed to be to-go”
  • Neatness and presentation? Who cares, it’s in a pail!
  • Finally, to keep every portion consistent in size, we will be serving our cookie dough in the pail as well.  While we don’t recommend eating 26 oz of cookie dough, you’re all big boys and girls and can make that choice if you want.

We look forward to seeing photos of your pail food on Twitter and SnapChat or Facebook if anyone still uses it.

So Tuesday Was Kinda Wild

We’ve gotten pretty good at handling natural disasters over the past few years.  While there is a great deal of planning that goes into such an event, we would never be able to pull it off without our staff.  Both full-timers and students made their way through the storm to keep the lights on and our customers fed.

  • Stephanie Andrasik
  • Nick August
  • Jessica Carlson ’16
  • Dandara Catete  ’15
  • Francine Denny
  • Hannah Fritz ’18
  • Krista Kaffen
  • Rick Kmietek
  • Robert McGiveron
  • Mike Mitchell
  • Callie Monroe ’17
  • Brian Rahrig
  • Hannah Rimm ’15
  • Shourya Sen ’15
  • Emma Singer ’15
  • Job Vasquez

And of course co-owner, fearless leader Karen Kaffen-Polascik (Ed was in an undisclosed bunker for security reasons)

These were the people who fed hundreds of you including over 700 just at dinner alone.  That’s 700 meals MADE TO ORDER.  We broke our record set during the dinner after Blizzard Nemo in 2013.

We are very thankful to them and to our customers for their patience and understanding during a very busy day and stressful couple of days.

-Karen & Ed
