Filling hangover fixes

In the spirit of St Patrick’s Day, it would seem to be appropriate to prepare students on how to best cope with their post-Ezra hangovers via greasy and filling fast food.  All things considered — i.e. the whole suspended classes, social isolation thing — condoning large gatherings isn’t exactly a morally, ethically, or hygienically sound idea.  That’s why this article […]

The jungle juice jinx

Last Saturday night I invited a couple friends over to pre-game. I had found an intensive Jurassic Park movie drinking game online and was prepared to become intoxicatingly mesmerized by the 993 dino-CGI. I prepared two large servings of jungle juice. “Jug A” contained two 295 millilitre berry concentrate packs, 885 millilitres of water and 600 millilitres of Bacardi rum. […]
