I’ve been hearing a ton of rave reviews recently about the renowned Worthy Burger, so this week I decided I had to try it out for myself. Located about a half hour’s drive from campus in South Royalton, Vermont, the restaurant has a slightly rustic vibe that is thankfully accompanied by three ceiling fans and an air conditioner inside. The Worthy Burger atmosphere is a friendly hum of activity: the bar scene was hopping as ragey 30-somethings turned down for draft beers on this Tuesday night, the air had the slight tinge of wood smoke and the sound of chattering customers filled the seating area.
The Burlington Coats, otherwise known as Barbary Coast Lite, performed some smooth jazz outside Collis yesterday evening.
Dartmouth is an extremely fit place as far as college campuses go. Nearly a quarter of undergraduate students are varsity athletes and three-quarters of undergrads participate in a form of athletics, including club and intramural sports. There is also, however, an extremely large NARP (non-athletic regular person) contingency on this campus, although you may not have guessed it. If you’re a member of this exclusive grouping, chances are you already have some tactics for hiding it or you’ve fully embraced your NARP status. But if you’ve found yourself lost, searching for answers in a sea of rowers and football players, we would like to help.
It’s sophomore summer, a time of tanning by the river and reading on the Green. Of course, each beautiful Hanover day we get comes at a price: the ever-looming threat of a sporadic downpour. There’s no rhyme or reason to this crazy New England weather, and even the forecasts can’t seem to get it down. Ever since I had to dump my bag on two of my roommates I saw walking so I could finish biking home through a sudden downpour a few weeks ago, I’ve been extra paranoid about making sure I’m prepared for the all-too-common swings in New Hampshire weather. Here are some tips I’ve accumulated through my own rainy experiences to avoid getting caught unprepared in the rain.
No, that wasn’t a typo. It really is week six of 14X already, and for 16s that means you’re more than halfway through with the famed sophomore summer. At this time of the term, midterms have started up (14Xtremelybehind) and you may find yourself staring at a behemoth of a bucket list with no check marks or slashes through marking completion. Don’t worry, we know how you feel.
As 14X grew closer this spring, exclamations of “You’re going to love sophomore summer!” and “I wish I could do it again!” seemed to jump up in every conversation I had. Sighs of “the farmer's markets!” also popped up more than I expected. So far, it’s all been true —especially the farmer’s markets! One of the quintessential summer activities, farmer’s markets have become big this summer, offering fun regardless of where the sunshine finds you.

It’s a classic first-week-of-college challenge: try to find free food for every meal. Doing this for a day during Freshman Orientation was incredibly easy, with clubs and groups of all kinds vying for our attention. But over sophomore summer, things have become more complicated. Nevertheless, I decided to take on this challenge and try to find three free meals this week. Here’s how my day went:
Critiquing best-of lists is usually a futile exercise. For one thing, taste is obviously subjective, and for another, writers tend to speak to the tastes of their specific audiences. To top it all off, at the end of the day the person writing the list is getting paid to do what I do for fun, so clearly he or she is doing something right. But when I read NPR’s recent list of their 50 Favorite Songs of 2014 (So Far), I did a double-take.
Sophomore summer is full of wonderful things — farmer’s markets, sunshine, swimming in the river—but there are two things that have a deep-rooted hatred of sophomore summer and will attempt to destroy it. These enemies have names: heat and humidity.
This week’s dessert is, strangely enough, inspired by King Arthur Flour’s Instagram account. I have a bad habit of liking food photos more than photos with my friends in them, and this summer, I started following more food accounts than ever before. Yes, food has been on my mind, and this week’s dessert is arguably my least sweet since I began writing this column. Perhaps I am still recovering from the sweetness of my “Sangria” shake, I’m not sure. But as I was scrolling through my food-saturated Instagram newsfeed I stumbled across a photo from King Arthur Flour of a piece of rye bread with peanut butter and cinnamon — yes, cinnamon — on it. What?!
You may be familiar with the monthly Harper’s Index — a well-researched, legitimate list of pithy statistics documenting life around the world.
Step 1: You’re going to wake up early and get so much done. Your alarm is set for 9 a.m. You’re getting brunch with some trippees at 10. You hear your alarm blaring and open your eyes, expecting a Snow-White-esque birds-chirping halo of sunshine. But it’s 1 p.m. Welcome to Saturday afternoon… and 12 new messages on your trippee GroupMe wondering where you are.
My goal for the past two terms has been to step up my FoCo game, especially with such limited DDS locations and hours during the summer. Collis, however, has always been harder for me to work with. Stir-fry and pasta are pretty straight-forward – pick a sauce, add some veggies, boom, you’re done. Trying to mix it up meant I had to get creative. But if you think your options are restricted, maybe you’re not thinking about it the right way.
Tuesday July, 1st. 9:35pm. Foxborough, MA. Somewhere along the side of Route 1.
1) You’re so frickin' ready.

After the Dartmouth recently reported that the King Arthur Flour Café (KAF) in Dartmouth's Baker-Berry library may be closing in December 2014, students have started a petition to keep KAF on campus.

It’s already T-minus 360 days until July 4, 2015, so you know you better start planning now. If this year’s Independence Day didn’t quite go how you thought it would, take it as a learning experience and make the next one even greater! We’ve come up with seven "foolproof" ways to celebrate the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Summer is the perfect time to take up an intramural sport. Whether you’re showing off your softball skills or letting the World Cup get to your head and telling everyone you’re trying out “football,” chances are you could use some advice for amping up your IM game. Dust off those cleats and go borrow a real athlete for practice – we’re about to get sporty.
