Tacos & Trump Happy Hour

in Op Ed by
tacos and trump

“My culture is a very dominant culture, and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner,” warned Marco Gutierrez, the founder of the group Latinos for Trump during an interview on CNBC in early September. Now if that is a ploy to get people to vote Trump and I was an American I’d definitely be saying “I’m with her.” (Also because Trump is just a mess). If you follow my articles and I’m sure you do, you remember that I wrote fondly about Cinco de Mayo and expressed my love for tacos. There were dozens of other people who would agree this past Friday as they…

Wedding season seems to be in full swing as I’m sure you have noticed. Facebook and Instagram timelines are flooded with photos of brides and grooms and friends attending weddings. If you’re lucky…or unlucky you have probably attended a wedding or two or five this summer or into the fall.

Running the 89th Annual Tely 10 (AKA The 2016 St. John’s Poutine Challenge Part III- Why Did I Eat So Much Poutine?!)

Three years ago, with my cousin whom I look at as a little sister, I ran the Tely 10. She got it in her head that it was something we should do. I hadn’t given it much thought despite being fairly physically fit for most of my university career but she was adamant that it was something we could do. Truth be told, I had no desire to put the effort in to training. Even more full disclosure: I didn’t want to try and do embarrassingly bad. I actually think back to three years ago as one of the last times I can truly say I was somewhat close to happy (or whatever it is we think is “happy”). At…

The 2016 St. John’s Poutine Challenge: Part II (On The Run- Trying To Work Off Poutine)

in Features by
Poutine Challenge

June has come and gone meaning that the 2016 St. John’s Poutine Challenge has wrapped up. Last month I put on my journalist hat (backwards snapback of course) and wrote an article where I talked about the challenge and interviewed Adam from Five Brothers Artisan Cheese so hopefully you got out and tried one or two. I certainly got out and tried one or two…or six. I sort of wish I had a novelty shirt that reads “I did it all for the poutine” to have worn during my outings. So yes, I managed to try six out of the eighteen poutines (my roommate/bestie managed to squeeze one more in; we no longer live together). If anyone knows me they…

The 2016 St. John’s Poutine Challenge: Part I- Challenge Accepted

By: Kristopher Smith Have you ever watched Survivor and been so sure you would bomb an Immunity challenge the second that Jeff describes the task at hand? For me this happens for pretty much any challenge that involves a puzzle. Now if the challenge involved the consumption of Canada’s delectable delicacy known as the poutine, I’d be all about it. Actually, that isn’t entirely accurate as I’m super picky and don’t really like trying new things which is why I didn’t partake in the 2015 St. John’s Poutine Challenge. I had heard about it last year, was excited but turned off when I saw some of the recipe. It was disappointing because at the time I was trying to branch…
