We all have one season that we look forward to the most for its gustatory experience. Summer, fall, winter, and spring all bring with them a certain “feeling,” and this feeling is tied inextricably to the different foods they offer. In this Food Fight column, the Argus Food staff takes on the ever-pressing question: which season gives the best culinary adventure?
The library was the locale of choice for many procrastinators on Sunday afternoon, but the real place to be was the backyard of Outhouse. Fall Fest, an annual autumnal celebration organized by Outhouse and the Outing Club, featured everything that’s great about fall (hot cider, piles of leaves) and other things that are just great in general (live acoustic sets by Wesleyan musicians, a slackline, doughnuts on a string). From 12 to 3 p.m., students joined in on the festivities.
Spicy foods: whether you like them or not, they provide a considerably more exciting gustatory experience than grabbing dinner at Usdan at half past five on a drab Tuesday evening. Far more goes into preparing spicy food than slathering a dish with Tabasco or Sriracha, and the experience transcends simple consumption.
