…but Gangsta Wrap, with its turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato and parmesan pepper dressing just might be up for the challenge.

Chicken-Madness-Gangsta-Wrap

Or maybe not. How can you say no to this? So good, it’s “madness.” See what I did there?

1951Hatter But how can you say no to something so “Gangsta”? (Note: In no way does Tate Tucker officially endorse “Gangsta” Wrap, but he does make some pretty amazing “gangsta’ rap” … I immediately regret using that term but WISEY’S MADE ME DO IT.)

Then again… how can you say no to these ingredients?

Chicken Madness: Slices of chicken grilled hot and sweet peppers, onions, cheese, bacon and mayo. Hear the Hallelujah chorus yet?

Burger Madness Hot Chick

Onto the next one! This round looks to be a close one, folks. Part two of our Wisey’s Sandwiches Showdown: Burger Madness vs. Hot Chick.

Our number two pick is the not-so-ugly step-sister of Chicken Madness: Burger Madness. Same madness, more beef, more mayhem.

But Hot Chick is looking to spice things up … with cayenne pepper and parmesan pepper dressing. Bam. Game changer?

However, Burger Madness coincides with March Madness. (Here’s a bracket in case you need one.)

But I mean, who doesn’t like hot chicks?!

Who will be the winner of Part 2? Will it be the beefy Burger Madness or the spicy Hot Chick? Who will make it on to the next round? Why am I salivating so much? IT’S UP TO YOU! (Except the salivating part. That’s not up to you; that’s just because Wisey’s is delicious.)

Chicken Madness vs. Hot Chick

chick vs hot chick

As Georgetown students, when someone says “Wisey’s sandwich”, we typically think of Chicken Madness. Recently, there has been much debate (see here in today’s issue of The Guide) as to whether the Hot Chick actually deserves more fame than the Chicken Madness. So Hoyas, what do you think?

To refresh your memory:

Chicken Madness Slices of chicken, grilled hot and sweet peppers, onions, cheese, bacon, mayo

Hot Chick Chicken fingers, cayenne ranch dressing, pepper jack cheese, and tomatoes

Surviving Sandy: Food Edition

As Hurricane Sandy descends on the East coast, we’re all making last minute preparations before the storm traps us inside. The worst of the storm is yet to come, so if you still need to grab supplies, now’s the time to do it. Lots of places are running low on bottled water and flashlights, but there’s still some things to be had if you know where to look. Nobody wants to make a long trek just to come face to face with a closed sign, so we put on our journalist pants and found out which places are still open. We’ll be updating this list as we hear updates on business hours. Wisemiller’s – Normal hours: grab a Chicken Madness to tide you over during Hurricane Madness) The Tombs – Kitchen closed at 3 p.m. Corp Services – Closed Quick Pita – Normal hours Wingo’s – Normal hours Eat & Joy – Normal hours Chipotle – Closed Tuscany – Closed Booey’s – Closed Dean & Deluca – Closed Dixie Liquor – Will remain open until 8 p.m.

Do You Know Your Hoya ABC’s?

After sharing my Freshman fails with you, it got me thinking: what are the fundamental things every Georgetown student should know? Or, at least, what are the things so basic that even I, a fresh little freshy, know about being a student here. So test yourself, do you know your Hoya ABC’s?

Acronyms: GUGS, GUSA, GUAFSCU, GUTS… by now you should know that around here ‘GUAVA JUICE’ (Georgetown uses acronyms very abundantly, just understand it’s commonly exercised)

Bagels: They are the best bang for your buck on campus in my opinion. From the toasted Asiago bagel from MUG/UG to the free bagels on Lau 2 after Midnight Mug closes, they’re the best way to quench your hunger on a budget.

Chicken Madness: $7.50. Wisey’s. Heaven. ‘Nuff said. 

Dahlgren quad fountain: Make sure you take a swim in it before you graduate! (Maybe even pour a little laundry detergent in the nozzle and take a nice bubble bath!).

Epicurean: it’s a great place to treat yourself when you’re sick of Leo’s (aka always) or to just watch the game with friends (unless your team loses and then your friends have license rub it in your face in public…this is the mistake I made when I watched the Pats-Seahawks game this past Sunday with my friend from Seattle. Needless to say we aren’t friends anymore.)

Fight Song: It’s been so long since last we met, lie down forever, lie down…

Grubhub.com: this is the reason I’m broke. Online ordering from tons of restaurants for delivery right to your door step… or I guess dorm* step. 

Hoya Saxa: By now, you should know what Hoya Saxa means and should be able to succinctly explain it to your non-Georgetown friends from home.

Freshman Fails: What’s a DFMO?

So I’m a freshman – you were all in my shoes at some point, but it doesn’t make those shoes any less awkward. And nothing is funnier than the misfortune of others, so here is a list of 10 of my more embarrassing Georgetown moments that only a freshman could have:

1. I walked into the library, located the stairs, and proceeded to walk UP to find Lau 2.

2. I didn’t know that Wisey’s was a nickname for Wisemiller’s and tried to figure out where it was by Googling “Wisey’s”.

3. I’ve still never had an Oreo cookie from the aforementioned Wisey’s.

4. I thought you could use flex dollars at Sweetgreen and was accordingly confused when my card said insufficient funds.

5. I left my laundry unattended… bad choice.

6. I had to look up “dfmo” on urban dictionary.

7. I still don’t know where Brown House is, or why it’s called Brown House. I’m assuming it’s because it’s brown. But I wouldn’t know.

8. I wore uncomfortable shoes to D.C.’s Fashion’s Night Out and have the blisters to prove it.

9. I tried to take a sandwich and a fruit cup from Grab-and-Go and got yelled at by the attendant. Apparently EVERYONE knows that a fruit cup is considered an ENTRÉE. DUH.

10. I walked all the way through the University Hotel to get to Starbucks, unaware that there was a much faster and direct route through Hoya Court.

I do genuinely hope this will be my last ‘Freshman Fails’ post, but let’s be realistic, I still have a lot to learn about Georgetown. So stay tuned for more humor at my expense.
