Congrats to Michael Scognamiglio for his winning creation, the “Chinchilla”: vanilla and cinnamon flavored coffee topped with cocoa. The grand prize: free coffee at Williams Cafe for the rest of the semester. Although thinking of chinchillas while drinking coffee isn’t the most appetizing proposition, we congratulate Michael’s creativity. Enjoy your free month-long coffee binge!
Want a free coffee every day (EVERY DAY) until the end of the semester?
That’s the prize for winning Williams Cafe’s coffee concoction contest, running through Sunday. Submit your original idea for a coffee–all syrups, hazelnut shavings, and spices are fair game–on Facebook, Twitter, or in person, and the best cup will win a place on the menu (and a helluva lotta caffeine!).
We’re not Joe-king about this one!
It’s April Fool’s, so we’re all hoping that Girl Talk is SPEC’s way of tricking the entire student body. They’re not. Anyway, today’s the nicest day we’ve seen all year and it’s time to prep for the mess that will be Fling 2k13. In the meantime, find space to squeeze some of these events into your calendar for this week!

We don’t think we can handle this. MAJOR props to Williams Cafe, which has hopped on the Queen Bey bandwagon and is serving Beyoncé (chocolate-caramel) lattes! Poor Michelle must feel bad that her own namesake coffee shop chose Sasha Fierce for drink of the week, but Penn always puts B’s love on top. Head over to Williams, Single Ladies, because that cafe is full of lattes with they pockets full grown.
Ah, Williams Café. Its plethora of offerings and convenience of location make the 15-person pre-class lines oh-so-worth the wait. With its recently revamped furniture and the addition of 2% milk, Williams has stepped it up this semester, even earning itself a coveted spot among Street‘s Best of Penn. But has the fame gone to its caffeinated little head? Not only is its B.O.P. nod prominently posted on its bagel case — twice — but now the Café is followable on Twitter (where it boasted its Street cred yet again). Yes, Williams is now among the likes of Heidi Montag, Under the Button and, of course, tweeters like you. And you thought you’d never be able to get instant updates when the blueberry muffins run out.
