Haiku Workshop 2 - Itoh.jpeg

Haikus by Princetonians: Dr. Mayumi Itoh’s haiku workshop returns to Frist

“Because haikus have such a dependence on the writer’s surroundings, several students presented poetry that differed dramatically from that showcased in the in-person sessions. The students were experiencing the seasons differently than they would at Princeton, which was reflected in their writing.”

We tried hot cocoa from 6 places in Princeton, so you don't have to

I sampled hot cocoa from six establishments in town: Small World Coffee, Halo Pub, The Bent Spoon, Starbucks, PJ’s Pancake House, and Milk & Cookies. I was shocked to find so many places serving this chocolaty treat. Every time I thought I had tried it all, I found more shops to explore! Now that winter is right around the corner, I recommend you all go out and get a steamy cup of cocoa to warm up.
