Concert: Rafal Blechacz
I promised myself that I wouldn’t be the sort of reviewer who does nothing but shower praise. I would be stern, critical, with a healthy rationing of compliments and complaints. But then diSiac showed up and ruined everything. “Ablaze,” diSiac Dance Company’s spring show, is excellent. So excellent, in fact, that at times they made me forget that I was supposed to be reviewing their performance. I found myself being swept up in the dancing.
After wandering about for a few minutes along Witherspoon Street looking for the entrance to Infini-T, my friends and I came across a bright green sign guiding us to our destination. Upon entering the dimly lit cafe, I was alarmed to notice that I had starved myself all day in anticipation of a big meal, only to find a small selection of snack foods and an infinite number of fragrant teas. Nonetheless, we swallowed our strong desire to abandon this shop and head to Hoagie Haven and tentatively ordered some sandwiches, soup and tea.
Living in Forbes means that anywhere farther than Frist is often viewed as unreasonably far. The only compelling reason why I made the long and treacherous journey to Palmer Square was Teresa Caffe.
Have you ever wondered what it’d be like if a Sanchez sandwich and a pizza had a baby? Stop dreaming and find out for yourself.
Although Mediterra was fairly packed for a Sunday lunch, the restaurant maintained a casually elegant ambience, an effect achieved by chic decor and beautiful wood paneling. Unfortunately, the lunch menu was rather limited — sandwiches and salads comprised most of the entree choices. I also expected more authentic Mediterranean dishes but found that the menu had more Italian and Spanish influences. Setting my confusion aside, I elected to order the Wester Ross Scottish Salmon while a friend got the Spring Rigatoni, as per the suggestion of our pleasantly attentive waiter.
Situated between Blue Point Grill and Small World Coffee, Nassau Street Seafood & Produce Company is an unassuming place to grab a bite. Simultaneously a seafood market, produce store and a place for casual seafood takeout, the store is situated to fit its many purposes. The small building features a long, narrow walkway framed by seafood on the left and various produce and pre-prepared refrigerated foods on the right as you walk up to the cash register to order your meal.
Princeton Shakespeare Company’s “The Taming of the Shrew” takes to the stage this Thursday for its second and final weekend of performances. Directed by Maeli Goren ’15, this production occupies a space somewhere between traditional reproductions of Shakespeare’s comedy and more progressive theatrical choices. Although “Taming” benefits from stellar performances from its main actors and a general high energy among the cast, the show’s more problematic issues remain unaddressed due to a lack of clear direction.
I’ve only seen my roommate up before 8 a.m. twice in my life. Both times were the mornings that students had to select courses for the following term. This semester marks the first time I’ll be joining in the frantic scurry to successfully register for the classes that I — like so many other freshmen — have spent hours tailoring to create a perfect schedule. For the past two terms, I’ve followed a regimented engineering curriculum, filled with too many prerequisites to have any real choices available and lectures with caps just large enough to kill all of my excitement on the morning of registration. Now, anxiously watching juniors and sophomores push enrollment numbers toward their limits has made me yearn for my days of safety in the school of engineering.
Agricola Community Eatery, Princeton’s newest high-end restaurant, combines farm-to-table principles with fine dining. The decor has a minimal yet rustic aesthetic, complemented by its flannel-clad waitstaff. More importantly, Agricola’s seasonal menu features ingredients derived from local farms, including its own Great Road Farm, and is incredibly vegetarian-friendly.
This Friday, Caroline Hertz and I consumed roughly 4,637 calories in one sitting. While the third world wept, we smiled giddily through our choco-hazes. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you: Cheeburger Cheeburger.
Channeling the spirits of my pub-dwelling predecessors, I strolled down Triumph Brewing Company’s long entryway with a sense of womb-like familiarity. I picked up the menu for a cursory glance, already knowing I was going to order my favorite item, the Epic Burger. Shock, numbness, ice-cold fear: It was gone.
Due to my family’s love of Teresa Caffe and Winberie’s, I haven’t given many other Princeton establishments a chance in the past. I figured I’d start with a reputable favorite — the Alchemist & Barrister. While not exactly an adventurous choice, the A&B is a safe dining experience that deserves its status as a Princeton standby.
Tico’s Eatery & Juice Bar is tucked away on an otherwise unassuming corner of Witherspoon Street, which is probably why I’ve never noticed the yummy goodness inside before. At Tico’s, a store famous for its fresh-squeezed juice, you can opt for one of many special blends. These juices range from the all-friendly “Tico” (orange, pineapple and mango juice) to the more austere “Goodness” (beet, carrot, celery and ginger), and you can always create your own blend — choose up to two base juices and pay 50 cents per additional ingredient.
This week, Street got the chance to talk to the officers of diSiac about their dance company's growth over the last 15 years. President Danielle Holman '14, Vice President Allison Metts '15 and Artistic Director Austin Giangeruso '14 offered an inside look into diSiac's artistic inspirations, presence on campus and all the work leading up to their spring show, "Ablaze."
This past weekend, FUSE Dance Collective, a relatively new student-run dance collective, finished their spring show, “7 Happenings.” Street sat down with some of FUSE’s dancers to discuss the collective’s first year.
Chenning grace ma ’14 is a Wilson School major from Lafayette, Calif. Her parents split their time between Beijing and Grace’s childhood home outside San Francisco. The family’s distance from New Jersey often means that Grace only makes it home twice a year. Since her freshman year, Grace has spent only a few weeks over winter break and a couple of weeks during the summer in California. “[Princeton] is too far away from my home,” laments Grace’s mother, Hope Chen. Although she wishes Grace weren’t so far away during the school year, she recognizes the positive experiences that Princeton affords her daughter. “I think Grace has had a great time at Princeton in terms of personal development,” Hope says.
Princeton preview is one of the few times each year we can justifiably showcase the orange portion of our wardrobes and be as obnoxious about school pride as possible. This is the time to get hyped about life beyond this semester; most of us are ascending a rung on the ladder of seniority, and others are finishing their senior theses and moving beyond the FitzRandolph Gate. Most importantly, it’s the time to give back to our alma mater in the invaluable currency of yield rates.
This weekend, BAC dance brings its spring show, “Survival of the Illest,” to the stage. Featuring high-energy numbers and oozing sex appeal, “Survival of the Illest” is a fun, flirtatious showing from BAC. Unfortunately, many pieces in this show fail to push the envelope artistically, and an overuse of the theater’s lighting capabilities keeps “Survival of the Illest” from fully engaging audience members. While not a tour-de-force performance, “Survival” has several bright choreographic moments.
