Food Report from Sophomore Summer

Well, I'm back at Dartmouth. Sophomore Summer has begun, and it's been a good term so far - great weather, laid-back atmosphere, all that stuff.

Since I'm a complainer by nature, though, I'll air some gripes about the food. There's not a lot of places to get it. Home Plate is closed, the Hop is gone during the weekends, and Collis pasta is a memory. I'm a fervent believer that Food Court only exists to make the other food places look better, except for the very rare good special, I'd rather not eat there. I realize that Dartmouth food tends to be great in comparison in other colleges, so I know I shouldn't be complaining, but I've gotten use to good food (a.k.a. meals at Home Plate). I'm not saying that they have much choice financially - I'm on the Student Budget Advisory Committee, so I've seen the DDS numbers - but that doesn't make better. I've gotten so desperate that I ordered EBA's by myself for the first time last night. Turns out it's only good under the influence of alcohol.

Lone Pine.

And the EBAs fries are GREAT if you eat them in-house, they suck after steaming up in a to-go container.
