“How To Find Food At Penn,” by Brynn Shepherd.
This one’s a three-parter, so be sure to check out the rest, including a wheel of intoxication and a walking tour of the food trucks, after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
UTB loves awards. We love liveblogging the Oscars. We love voting for Best of Penn. Just this afternoon, we loved seeing the World Series Trophy, if only because Penn students (like infants, pirates and Gossip Girls) love shiny things. This Friday night is the Greater Philadelphia Student Film Festival (GSPFF). Doors open at 6:15, the show starts at 7, and at the Awards Ceremony, 17 of the best student films will be playing. Tickets are $10 online and $15 at the door; entry not only gets you entertainment but also free Qdoba and Honest Tea, plus a soundtrack provided by DJ Foxx Boogie, Penn’s own Langston Clement. For a preview, check out the trailer below:
Don your camouflage, ladies and gentleman. This campus is about to be hit by a conflict that will make the Penn-Princeton rivalry pale in comparison. We haven’t seen a feud this fierce since Serena’s unexpected return to the Upper East Side.
I’m speaking, of course, of the impending burrito wars. Now that the feeding frenzy that was Free Burrito Day at Chipotle is over, you can be sure that burrito-related middle-management employees everywhere are manning their battle stations and preparing for their next big offensive. After all, Qdoba had the long-standing burrito monopoly on this campus (except, of course, for rogue Mexicali devotees), and it’s certainly not going to a let a newcomer stomp all over it without a fight.
That being said, we here at UTB do not take our burritos lightly, so it’s only natural that we weigh on this whole situation. Thus, my reasons why Chipotle is going to run Qdoba into the ground.
Burrito enthusiasts, take note: as we were rolling back onto campus this evening, we whizzed by the newly opened Chipotle Mexican Grill in the Radian. Not only does Qdoba have some serious competition, but now the classic facebook group “Holy Shit the Closest Chipotle To Penn Is 69.28 Miles” is officially obsolete.
