ATTENTION ALL HOYAS! As you may have gleaned from this article, starting Wednesday, Jan. 28 until Feb. 1, the Corp is closing their coffee shops. That’s right, MUG is outie Friday through Saturday, Uncommon Grounds is uncommonly closed on Wednesday and Thursday and Midnight Mug is closed Friday and Saturday. In this time, the locations will be switching coffee brands (from Mayorga to Compass Coffee) and will also be updating equipment.
We at 4E can think of several issues related to this mass closing. The primary question being, Where are students going to get their coffee? Sure, there’s Starbucks in Leavey Center, Epi and Saxby’s, to name a few places. But does Saxby’s sell those cute little empanadas from Midnight? Can Epi satisfy my craving for a Pygmalion? Why doesn’t Starbucks have a location smack dab in the ICC?
As much as people love to make fun of the Corp, it’s undeniable that the organization has a huge impact on student life and student caffeine content. So stop whatever you’re doing (even if it’s the snow dance) and get your coffee while you can. It might be February before you get a sip of that sweet, sweet Red Eye.
The 4E is an inclusive blog. We accept people from all types of food-eating groups: vegans, vegetarian, paleo, chocolate-only … as long as you love to eat, we are the blog for you.
Personally, there is nothing that I love more than a good taco. Seriously, I had tacos twice this week and I was in Israel. It is an addiction that I am not trying to stop.
So if you love food and tacos, you are going to die of pure excitement in about 5 seconds.
Ever heard of Chaia? If you haven’t, you will soon. Chaia is a veggie taco company that has often frequented D.C. farmer’s markets (we all know the 4E loves farmer’s markets).
Now, they are opening a real life store in the one and only foodie capital of the world, Georgetown.
Yes, that is right. At 3207 Grace St. NW this June, Georgetown students will have direct access to these genius tacos. That is a 15-minute walk from the front gates. So basically, tacos are going to happen between your weekday classes. Taco Tuesdays anyone?
Their current plan is to serve lunch Tuesday through Friday, brunch on Saturday and Sunday, and even dinner Tuesday through Sunday. That is a lot of tacos!
But actually, how amazing does that brunch sound? Eggs, tacos, friends, Georgetown, 4E… can life get any better at the Hilltop?! (Hint: no, it cannot.)
