The Lowdown on Lawrence Restaurant Week

By Lilimay Bangoy
September 17, 2014 - 7:50pm

This week marks the beginning of the first Lawrence Restaurant Week! For those of you who don’t know what it is, its basically an event where several restaurants around Downtown Lawrence are offering discounts, special items, or prix fixe (pre-fixed) menus consisting of dishes that they normally don’t offer on their regular menus. It’s the first time that something like this has happened in Lawrence, and it’s an opportunity for the chefs at these restaurants to show how creative and skilled they are at their craft, so it’s honestly worth checking out! If you’re looking for things to do on a date or a night out with your friends, all the more reason to go and try some exciting new food!   READ MORE...

The Difference Between a Compliment and a Catcall

By Callie Byrnes
September 17, 2014 - 8:00am

What girl hasn’t been honked at, yelled at, or whistled at when walking down the street? It’s a tale as old as time, and we’ve all probably had at least one run-in with it. It starts sometime around when we begin developing in middle school and pretty much never stops from there. Some women find it as a source of empowerment; other women, like me, can’t help but feel uncomfortable with the unwanted attention. And no, it’s not because I’m insecure or because I can’t take a compliment, but that’s the thing. Catcalling isn’t a compliment. READ MORE

Offbeat Elective: West African Drum Ensemble

By Devan Schaly
September 16, 2014 - 8:00am

Are you looking for an elective a little outside of the box? Or maybe you're a music major looking for an ensemble credit that will allow you to play something other than the same old instrument you've played since the sixth grade. In that case, I may have the class for you. It's called West African Drum Ensemble! I first heard about this class during my time as an introductory music therapy major last year, but unfortunately have not had the pleasure of taking it (but that won't stop me from advocating for it and hopefully getting the opportunity to take it). Dylan Bassett, the instructor of the course, was able to give me some insight on his background in West African music, how the course is set up and what his goals are for the class....
