Eggs Benedict with fresh Asparagus one of many Weekend Brunch specials

You’ve heard about it.  They have cookie dough.  Maybe you even ate here during WesFest.  But now you’re here, standing in line, with a crowd around you, and you hear one of the cashiers yell, “Can I help who’s next?”  

WesWings can be a little daunting the first few times.  Some will panic and just order a burger and fries or a chicken sandwich.  Our menu is pretty extensive and the choices are vast.

  • What kind of bread?
  • Regular or spicy fries?
  • What kind of sauce?
  • Here or to go?

To list just a few of the questions you’ll be asked.

So here are a few ideas to help you get the most out of our little establishment Remember, yes we take points and like the Red & Black Cafe, we are a small independent business owned by Karen & Ed ’89

  1. Water is free, cups are not.  We charge 25 cents for a water cup so if you don’t want to buy a drink, bring your own mug.  We do this to reduce waste, not make money.
  2. To Go containers are free.  Our portions are big and delicious so why not bring it home.

What to order?

Bucket ’22 Winner of Egg Contest To Become New Owner of WesWings

As many probably figured out, our recent Egg Hunt had several eggs containing “Golden Tickets” We invited all of the ticket holders to a tour of WesWings and we are happy to announce that pre-frosh Charles Bucket ’22 was the winner. Not just of the cookie dough, but the whole restaurant.

We chose Charlie despite his breaking the rules of the contract signed by him.

“the undersigned, shall forfeit all rights, privileges, and licenses herein and herein contained, et cetera, et cetera… Fax mentis incendium gloria cultum, et cetera, et cetera… Memo bis punitor delicatum!”

During the tour, he and his grandpa Joe stole some Dr Pepper by drinking directly from the soda fountain which now has to be washed and sterilized. But instead of getting nothing and saying good day to them, after Bucket ’22 returned his everlasting cookie dough we knew he was the one.

We want to also congratulate the other golden ticket winners who took the tour of Swings but didn’t make it to the end, Salt ’18, (was a bad egg), Argus food editor Beauregarde ’19, film student Teavee ’19 and that August kid. Don’t worry they’ll all be back to their normal old terrible selves but maybe they’ll be a little bit wiser for the wear.

Bucket ’22 will be living in 156 High St next year along with his mother and all four grandparents (we don’t know what happened to the father). However due to Res Life rules, all four grandparents will have to share a twin XL bed.
