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.

Here We Snow Again

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

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.
