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.

Blizzard’s Over On to the Super Bowl

katy-perry-super-bowl-halftime-show20140203040017!Puppy_BowlKaty Perry, Puppy Bowl XI, Super Bowl XLIX, there’s just so much going on this Sunday.

Here’s what you need to know.

  • We will be open all day Sunday 11am-8pm.
  •  Brunch will be served 11am-2pm.
  • We will be open 2pm-5pm for Chicken Wing orders
  • Full Menu for dinner 5pm-8pm

If you would like to order wings in advance, you can.  Just stop by anytime this week to place your order and reserve a time to pick up.  Remember kick-off is 6:30.  We suggest getting your orders in early because it’s the Super Bowl and we’re a wing place.

That said, here’s the funny thing.  It’s the Super Bowl, we’re a wing place but once the game starts at 6:30 we are totally dead.  EMPTY, NOBODY HERE.  This means for those of you who aren’t into the game but are into ‘Swings, you can come by on a Sunday, no less, and enjoy Penne Vodka without the huge crowds.

UPDATE TUESDAY 11:00AM

We’re getting done.  We will be opening at 11:30 AM.  

 

UPDATE TUESDAY 10:00AM

1 Hour Delay.  Our staff is slowly making it in and Wesleyan grounds is plowing and digging us out.  At his time we are planning for a 12 noon opening.  We will continue to update if we are able to open sooner or if there is a further delay.

 

 

UPDATE TUESDAY 8:00AM:

We are in contact with our staff and assessing conditions.  We will be updating at 10:00 am to let everyone know if we will open on time at 11:00 or if there will be a delay.

 

UPDATE MONDAY 11:00am:

Broad Street Books and Red & Black Cafe will be CLOSED Tuesday.  Depending on the severity of the storm there may also be a delayed opening on Wednesday.  WesWings is still planning on opening on Tuesday.  We will update if there are any changes or delays.

 

Hey juniors and seniors, remember how much fun we had two years ago?  So the latest is for a blizzard starting Monday night going until Tuesday night.  Couple of feet of snow, 50 mph winds blah blah blah.

We have been busy planning for this latest event.

As of Sunday 8pm:  Both locations plan to be open during the storm.  We will be meeting with the staff at Broad Street Books Monday to discuss contingency plans for the bookstore and cafe.  It is possible there will be either a delayed opening or closure on Tuesday.

While we are extremely committed to remaining open, the safety of our employees is our first priority. We will be updating this post throughout the storm over the next few days.  If you don’t already, please follow us on twitter for up to the minute updates
