Yet Another Locale Where Penn Kids Can Get Drunk

20130206_chiliszechuan_190x190Charles Plaza is far – like, a cab ride away kind of far. And Han Dynasty is expensive – like, you need to put that on your card kind of expensive. And we know Penn kids aren’t looking to trek it or break bank to get wasted whilst eating Asian cuisine. Well, it’s your lucky day, folks. Chili Szechuan, a BYO that offers both traditional and self-proclaimed “Americanized” Chinese food, recently opened on 46th and Baltimore.

So, if you’re looking for the next big thang near campus, head on over to Chili Szechuan for some pledge class bonding. Or, if you’re too busy studying for midterms, you can call in for takeout. Just be conscious of those around you - we don’t need to know that instead of reviewing for your Chem exam, you’re shoving eggrolls down your throat and trolling Tumblr.

Many keen observations by the button of late. Too bad none of the statements are substantiated. If I’m a stuck up purist, what food is Americanized? And what is judged to be more authentic? If I were to try it, what should I get? When readers can infer more from the tags on an article than the article itself, it might be time to re-evaluate standards.

Also, Charles Plaza doesn’t deserve such flattering press.

Francis – we’re just trying to keep Penn kids updated on news that may affect them and do so in a humorous way – it doesn’t need to be any more serious than that.

However, I think your biggest problem is that you don’t think Charles Plaza is awesome. Because it is. End of story.
