Only three students attended a discussion last week with Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Michael D. Smith about what they want to see in the next Dean of the College. It was on a Thursday night, and it was in the Quad, but that’s still pretty embarrassing. Flyby put together some suggestions for administrators to keep in mind for future events if they want to attract some student attendance.
As Yogurtland customers entered the Harvard Square location on Monday, they were encouraged to build mountains—mountains of froyo, that is. For those who may be worrying that all good things must come to an end, fear not: even if free froyo day is over, Harvard students will continue to enjoy their free three ounces of yogurt for a good while.
Another weekend come and gone. Eat away your Monday sorrows with some free Yogurtland, and see below to check out what else is going on at Harvard today.
Oh, Tuesday. It’s hardly the most inspiring day of the week, but with some cool events going on around campus today (including Flyby’s first comp meeting) you can definitely find a way to make it just a little bit more fun and fabulous!
It may be Day 1 of the Fall 2013 semester, but it’s not Monday. All classes that normally meet on Tuesdays will meet today. If you need a break, treat yourself to an early afternoon trip to the Farmer’s Market for a demonstration by Joanne B. Chang '91 of Flour Bakery.
Clover's Harvard Square restaurant is scheduled to reopen on Thursday. The chain had closed all operations following possible connection with a salmonella outbreak in the area.
The health-conscious fast-food chain closed all of its operations over a week ago after learning that some people in Massachusetts who had contracted salmonella had eaten at Clover.
One culinary question you'll never hear debated is where in the United States to go for a bagel. The supremacy of the New York bagel is a closed case—an accepted tenant of foodie-ism that is about as up for discussion as Avogadro's number. After I decided to come to Harvard, my mom bought me an enormous winter coat. But I was less concerned about Cambridge winters than I was about the prospect of being out of reach of a decent bagel. I went my entire first semester at college without attempting to fill the void. But positive experiences with Cambridge sushi and Cambridge pizza gave me a ray of hope. This week, Connie and I attempted to do the impossible: find a bagel worth eating within walking distance of Harvard Yard.
To celebrate its one-year anniversary, Zinneken’s is giving away free Liege-style waffles from 5 to 10 p.m. this Wednesday. The waffle stock will be limited, so be sure to stop by early to sample this chewy, doughy Belgian delight!
