I have never understood the fascination with cupcakes. It seems as though a recent trend has sparked in which America is now suddenly finding itself in a pseudo-hormonal craving for small, sweet and expensive desserts.

The Quick Dish

Ending a relationship is always difficult. You may ask yourself: When should I call things off? How should I break up with my significant other? Maybe even, who will rebound first? But I bet the one question that you don’t put much thought into is: Where should I end it?[Read More…]

Grab ‘n’ Go: Testing the Effects of Convenience

Grab ‘n’ Go was created for the sake of convenience. It is meant to help out the over-achieving, overly busy and overly exhausted college students that Georgetown seems to cultivate — a goal for which it has most certainly accomplished.

Affordable Indian, Even on M Street

One lesson I learned from eating at Taj of India was that appearances can be deceiving. Having run by the entrance, I was always a little skeptical about the quality of the food inside this dive eatery. With a small navy awning that covers the door and a shadowy atmosphere,[Read More…]
