chipotle you can get anywhere. gumbys is only in lawrence. take advantage. every other day is a good rule. don't try to eat a full bigass; you will make yourself sick. trust the expert.

 

the sandwich shop you refer to is probably planet sub, though the one on the other end of campus is gone now for a hotel. but there's still one pretty close by, you have to drive to get there though. i think they call them yello subs in lawrence. same thing.

 

also recommended is pizza shuttle

 

mrs e's wasn't bad, and i love ice cream too, but it really bothered me that they never got the carbonation to syrup balance right on the coke. that is enough to make me not go places. even when its free.

Yeah, I think you're right about what it's called. It sucks that there isn't one next to the campus anymore. I remember we would just go there sometimes because it was closer to where we had lab meetings than Mrs. E's.

 

By the way, if anyone is interested, there is a bowling alley at KU. We went there a few times, and, from what I remember, it was pretty cheep to bowl there. I think they might also have food in that area. It's next to the gift shop.

Are you kidding?

 

Gumby's and Pizza Shittle are terrible. They exist solely because they are cheap and deliver to the campus.

gumbys is delicious and i will entertain no notions to the contrary

 

pizza shuttle, eh. i really only included that because everyone else said it was good. i tried it once and went right back to gumbys.

I haven't, and I haven't heard of other kids getting anything either, so as of now I'm not terribly worried.

Wrong. Gumby's exists because God needed a way to expose the flavorful might of pokey sticks and barbecue chicken pizza.

 

And cheap? Really? I can't leave that place for less than $10.

It's possible that it has improved since I was in college... You used to could get a big ass for like 10 bucks.

I'm not positive on who exactly is, but I know a decent amount of aquinas debaters will be going to jdi or jedi.

 

Excellent camp, I wouldn't be the debater I am today had I not gone to the 3 week camp before my junior and senior years. The lectures are always fantastic, the lab leaders are excellent, the evidence is quality and the overall experience is [insert another synonym for 'good' here]. admittedly i'm not sure if i should be promoting KU's camp now that i'm going to be debating for k-state... ziegler you'll have to forgive me

 

[Andrew's beard's seal of approval.]

 

What more can I say?

 

mrs e's sucks, call in gumbys and go to planet sub

 

QFT. The coke syrup/carbonation bothered me as well, granted I still went to mrs. e's, more out of lack of money and laziness than anything else though. gumby's is always a great alternative, along with planet sub and pizza shuttle. i only chose pizza shuttle though because they had a buy one get one free deal then that i couldn't pass up, because having twice as much pizza pretty much made up for any lack in quality.

I can honestly say that JDI was an awesome experience for me. I went there before my junior and senior year. If you also consider how much it costs to go, it's very comparitively cheap to the other debate institutes. What's great about JDI is that the leaders that you all get are the same lab leaders who go to the bigger insistutions such as Michigan and etc.

 

JDI is a lot of fun and you'll meet a bunch of great people up there. I wouldn't be the debater I am today without having this experience

 

WORD OF ADVICE- Don't eat too much of Mrs. E's...that place will make you sick after a while. Take a few trips to The Union or the The Underground after you all get done cutting cards.

 

ANOTHER WORD OF ADVICE- Girls..don't take high heels...seriously. DON'T!! I did that..and my feet hurt for quite a while.

very limited in the main lectures the first week. get there early to get a front row seat (or very back row, there are plug-ins up top) and bring a power strip if u can. granted all of this is assuming that the main lectures are in the same room as last year

On the subject of food, if you can travel you should also check out some of the stuff down on Mass St, they have great pizza, BBQ, and just about everything else. Seriously, it's ridiculous. La Parilla, Buffalo Bob's, Vermont St BBQ, Jefferson's (you gotta go here), Free State Brewery, Mad Greek, Papa Keno's, Pita Pit...

I'm going to JEDI! I'll be commuting so I won't be seeing all you guys to often, but I'll be trying to spend as much time in the dorms as I can.

The fact that neither JB Stout's nor Dempsey's has been mentioned in this thread is a travesty. For god sake it's a burger made out of Kobe Beef tenderloin. I barely go to Lawrence and I know this.
