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.

Farewell Broad Street Books

cafesign

As the school year comes to a close, so does Broad Street Books, Wesleyan’s bookstore for the past fourteen years. In 2003 we joined together with Wesleyan and Follett Higher Ed to create Wesleyan’s bookstore and cafe. The former employees of Atticus Books became the first staff of Broad St Books and Red & Black Cafe. For fourteen years we worked side by side. While the people who worked for the bookstore would change, the Red & Black Cafe came to know so many of their staff, through the busiest of times and the darkest of days.

Recently we have observed the professionalism and dedication of their staff as they worked to liquidate the stock and bring the store to a close. We wish them well in their future endeavors and always leave open the possibility to work together in the future.

As for what becomes of the Red & Black Cafe, we’re not going anywhere. Wesleyan is our home and we will continue to serve students and the entire Wesleyan community. Several ideas are being discussed as to what will occupy the space left by the bookstore. We have our fingers crossed and will make any announcements when appropriate.

Enjoy your summer,

Karen & Ed
