New Chef, Old Chef

FullSizeRenderJeff Roberts was recently re-hired as our chef at WesWings.  Jeff had worked for us back in the 90s, during the early years of our empire.  For the past sixteen years he has amassed a great deal of experience and culinary knowledge that he now brings back to us.  Most recently, he was working at the upscale Bin 300 in Wolcott, CT.

While we will maintain many of our old favorites, look for new specials this semester, as Jeff looks to expand and enhance our offerings.

Farm (Ed) to Fork

Tonight’s BBQ Chicken Special features corn on the cob from Treat Farm.








When I arrived this morning the farm staff wasn’t there today. But we have a pretty good relationship with the farm and we REALLY wanted to bring you fresh local corn so..t2

I picked 100 ears myself.













Good thing I have a pick-up

Dude Where’s My Falafel? (A student Guide to ‘Swings Menu Changes)

We noticed that some of you are having trouble adjusting to our new menu boards.  As much as we enjoy watching the confused looks on your faces, the changes really are intended to simplify the process.  Only a couple of items are gone, some have moved and overall your choices have increased.

Many sandwiches have been consolidated to the “Build Your Own Sandwich Board”

7Items like the Falafel Wrap, Tender Sandwich,  Seitan Sandwich or Hummuswich are now found here and can be customized the way you want.




The Grilled Chicken Sandwich now comes with your choice of wing sauce.

4aNo longer limited to just Buffalo or Honey Ginger sauce, you can now have Medium Rochester if you choose.




Salads have more choices than ever. Continue reading

Red & Black Cafe Financial Aid Contributions Approach $50,000

RBC LogoFor almost a decade beginning in 2005, we have been contributing 1% of our gross sales from the Red & Black Cafe to support financial aid.  Our 1% For Aid campaign has now just reached over $48,000.  These funds have been restricted to financial aid and since 2009 we have specifically directed these funds to the Johannah Justin Jinich ’10 scholarship, (a cause dear to our hearts).

As we begin our 12th year in business, we appreciate all the support we’ve received from students and will continue to support you.

Farm Fresh is Back


Once again we are excited to feature locally grown produce from Treat Farm in Orange, CT.

Just a 1/2 mile down the road from owner, Ed Thorndike ’89, we are able to get farm fresh tomatoes, Zephyr squash, sweet corn and other vegetables.

Look for these veggies on your sandwiches and in your specials at both WesWings and Red & Black Cafe.




As small local businesses ourselves, we know the importance of supporting farms like Treat Farmtre6
