Food and Friends

Sam Jewler ’10

Hello future loyal readers! It's a Friday at Oberlin, and all is well. My housemates and I are cooking up some seitan-tandoori-noodle deliciousness, a citrusy breaded cauliflower concoction, and a range of other culinary experiments!

My week of work is over and it's time to kick back with good friends and pricey beer. Yes, I'm still in the post-21 phase of life when buying six-packs of beer for ten dollars is fun because I can. It's pretty amazing how important the aesthetic appeal of the packaging is when it comes to choosing which unknown beer to buy. For example, right now I'm drinking Great Lakes' "Burning River" beer, which I bought solely because I appreciated the company being self-deprecating about the fact that the nearby Cuyahoga River caught fire in 1969. Also because it's a local product... but I guess it wouldn't be local if it wasn't based on the Cuyahoga River.

Anyway, I promise I won't spend the rest of the year blogging about beer and circular logic. Or will I? Only one way to find out...
