Legends Cafe Named Best College Sandwich Shop

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014
This place is legendary.

This place is legendary.

Saratoga Springs’ Legends Cafe can finally live up to its name, as the Thrillist, a food and popular culture blog, included the local spot on its list of America’s Best College Sandwich Shops. I don’t want to start any controversy, and I know Legends holds a special place with Skidmore students and the Saratoga community, but it begs the obvious question: is Legends really the best sandwich spot in Saratoga? What about Putnam? What about Spring Street Deli? What about Roma? What about Comfort Kitchen? What about the Spa?

Not trying to stir controversy here, just some healthy Skidmore dialogue.

In any event, congratulations to Legends–definitely get yourself sub if you haven’t already.

Spring Break Trip To Guatemala

Monday, February 17th, 2014


Fellow Skidmore Students are trying to raise money for their Spring Break trip to Guatemala. There are two events this week: a film and a fundraiser to raise money and awareness on campus. Descriptions courtesy of Jane Dowd ’14 below:

On Wednesday, February 19th at 6:00 in the Spa we will be hosting a movie showing of the short, 30-minute film Manos de Madre that shows the experience of several mothers that work in the Guatemala City municipal garbage dump.  The movie further explains  what the organization Safe Passage does to help both the women and their children.  The Skidmore support team will be working with Safe Passage over spring break and we’d love to share what we will be doing with the school.  We will be accepting donations for the organization (SkidCard accepted) for Safe Passage and there will be free Esperantos! (Fbook)


On Friday, February 21st at 8:30 we will be hosting a fundraiser for Safe Passage at Falstaff’s.  Several student groups will be performing, including Villains, Drastic Measures, Breakbeats, Bandersnatchers, Rhythmos, Dynamics, and Bo Peep & the Funk Sheep.  There is a suggested $5 donation for the event (SkidCard accepted) and all money donated will go directly to Safe Passage.

You and two fairy friends at Falstaff’s this Thursday? Maybe!

Every year, Lively Lucy’s and EAC organize a fun concert in Falstaff’s to raise money for the Skidmore Garden. They get a bunch of bands and food and it turns into a regular hippie jam fest. Never ever saw the Northern Lights, huh guys?!

Snacks will be provided by Chipotle and Bread Basket (what, no Five Guys?), and the bands will include:

This year, if you donate over $3, you’ll be automatically entered into a raffle to win free stuff from local business like Plum Dandy, Uncommon Grounds, Chipotle, and (apparently) MORE TO COME!

Also, the people on the Facebook page are DESTROYING the produce pun game. Here are a few more:

  • Rave for Rabe
  • Mosh for Squash
  • Shrieks for Leeks
  • Tangos for Mangos
  • Half-Chubs for Shrubs
  • Get Low for Tomatillos
  • Boogala for Arugula

Create the “Skidmore Burger” and Win Stuff

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

These burgers look like cat turds

Starting tomorrow until October 11, Jacob & Anthony’s American Grille will be accepting submissions for the first J&A Skidmore Burger. Using the entry form, email with a full description, including bun, condiments, and a side or whatever. Winner gets a $250 gift certificate and the pride of seeing their creation on the menu for a few weeks.

My submission is guacamole, bacon, cheddar, chipotle mayo, and jalapeños on brioche. I think it goes without saying that these bold, Latin flavors fully encapsulate the CTM lifestyle.

On a sidenote, I didn’t even know this restaurant existed, but the menu looks decent in a Cheesecake Factory kind of way.


Happy Thanksgiving

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Pack up your bags and stash your stashes, it’s time for break. I’m pointing my car south and not stopping until my mouth is full of cranberry sauce. I extend my deepest condolences to those who have class today and hope you make it home to your respective suburban homes before morning.

Local News: Lazy Housemate Makes Hot Dogs

Monday, October 12th, 2009

SCRIBNER VILLAGE—This Sunday, for the first time all year, Macrury B resident Josh Friedberg made a meal to be shared with the three other residents of his house.

Friedberg, who is, according to anonymous sources, “a lazy piece of shit” who “never washes his dishes” and “leaves his dirty socks on all the fucking furniture” is rumored to be least helpful and least dependable member of the house.

Sources have also confirmed that Friedberg is a giant mooch who never has any money and takes three weeks to pay you back the ten dollars he borrowed for pizza. He has never so much as lifted a finger to help with any type of food preparation this year.

All that changed on Sunday.

Friedberg, in an unprecedented display of generosity, removed three hot dogs from their packaging and placed them in a frying pan on the stove for fifteen minutes while he watched SportsCenter in the next room.

“I can’t believe Josh made hot dogs,” said Pine C resident Sam Hines. “I’m not sure how we’re supposed to split three hot dogs between four people though. Does that mean everybody gets two thirds of a hot dog? Wait, that’s not right.”

The hot dogs were served, sans bun, in the lid of a Tupperware container.
