Clayton’s Catastrophic Column: It’s Tech Week? Also food?

More from Clayton's Catastrophic Column

It’s finally happening. After a culmination of rehearsals with individual ensembles and characters, the whole cast of “Guys and Dolls” is finally coming together to all participate in Tech Week. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Tech Week is the week (or two) when the cast of a show goes from rehearsing individual scenes and songs, to putting it all together and adding in sound and lights. This may not seem like a very difficult process, but I can assure you that it is quite strenuous. I can remember a specific day last year where a rehearsal lasted just about six hours, which amounted to me being at the school for just about 15 hours that day. Nevertheless, Tech Week allows for the whole cast to get a glimpse into the parts of the show that they are not a part of, and can be enjoyable, sometimes.

“Guys and Dolls” is certainly coming together right now, as we’re finally able to piece together the show to make one cohesive story line. For those unfamiliar with the plot of the show, you should probably come see it so you can find out what happens. Spoiler alert: I gamble a lot.

That’s pretty much all I have to say about that, so now in an effort to make this blog longer, I am going to write the words StuCo, food, SLT and school on pieces of paper and draw them out of a hat to decide what I’m going to write about in the other half of this blog.

I chose food, so I’m going to talk about my opinions on the recent expansive changes to the lunchroom, and give you my personal recommendations on our school cuisine.

First of all, you can never go wrong with a hamburger or chicken patty. Top notch stuff going on in Line Three – definitely cannot be missed.

Second, I’m pretty skeptical about the new Creation Station. I have tried both the Mexican and Italian options, but have yet to try the Asian option due to the fact that I despise most Asian food, with the exception of fortune cookies. My experience with the Mexican option was lackluster, to say the least. My tortilla seemed stale, I was given a minuscule amount of beef and the queso was astronomically worse than my favorite queso in the world (from Kite’s in Manhattan, Kansas). However, my experiences with the Italian option have been much more enjoyable. Although I have not ventured into the world of chicken pasta, I have tried the meatballs with marinara, and also the Alfredo sauce just today. Both were pleasantly enjoyable, and I would highly recommend the meatballs to anyone I come across.

Finally, Line One. The Original. Good ol’ One. Buckaroo. Changing every single day, you never know what’s going pop up in Line One, unless you look at the menu. I don’t think I can comment on the overall quality of Line One’s food, just because it changes so drastically everyday, but I can say that I rarely have a meal there that I do not enjoy. Good job, Line One.

Side note: did anyone realize that the gravy on the most recent chicken nuggets changed? It was quite a good deal lighter than its usual rusty yellow color, although it tasted just as swell so I really don’t mind.

I guess that’s all I got for right now.

Tickets for the musical go on sale next week, starting Monday, Oct. 27. Get ’em while they’re hot.

I’ve written two opinion columns that you can read if you would like to, which you can find below.

Lack of diversity results in an intolerant society

Ebola should not be a punchline

That is all.
