The best time of year has finally come around, and it’s time to take inventory of all the incredible food items the Student Center has to offer in preparation of one of the hungriest days in DePaul’s calendar year. Nothing takes care of a case of the munchies like some classic Stu items. Here’s a list of the eight best items at the Stu to eat this 4/20
8.) Cheeseburger and Curly Fries:
The hamburgers at Ranch are nothing to write home about. They’re greasy and half the time they’re not even thawed all the way through. But, God was actually looking out for us when he made curly fries the fry of the week. Nothing spices up one of those plain-ass burgers like a handful of those delicious potato springs.
7.) Anything from Etc.:
Etc. is no 7-Eleven, but it’ll do if you’re low on real money and have an unshakable craving for a Lunchable. Expect to pay $4.50 for a box of Oreos, but you’ll probably be so stoned you’ll be more concerned about whether to get Golden or Double Stuffed.
If there’s one thing you can look forward to when eating the Stu’s sushi, it’s the feeling the imitation crab gives your stomach after wolfing down one of those bad boys in between your 12:50 and 1:00 p.m. classes. You won’t be too happy about your choice the next day, but if you spend your 4/20 worrying about 4/21 then you’re doing the holiday wrong.
5.) Biscuits and Gravy:
This dish is the hidden gem of Scramble. It may look like something you’d find in the toilet the morning after celebrating Easter Sunday a little too hard, but it’s surprisingly tasty. They’ll look at you funny when you order it, but don’t worry they’ve been doing that since you aimlessly wandered into the Stu 20 minutes ago.
4.) Steak/Chicken Quesadilla:
Yes, sometimes the steak turns the quesadillas green, and yes the chicken is greasier than a St. Vincent’s forehead, but what kind of stoner doesn’t like melted cheese in a tortilla? No matter what you learn at DePaul, quesadillas are always the answer.
3.) Southern Tradition on an Everything Bagel:
If you like to wake and bake, then this is the perfect choice for you. The long line at Brownstone’s is a perfect place to unwind and people-watch some of DePaul’s finest. Plus, the wide variety of toppings on the everything bagel will complement the already superb taste of the traditional southern delicacy.
2.) Mozzarella Sticks:
You’re weird if you get high and DON’T crave 6 to 9 of these delicious golden brown molen cheese wands.
1.) Salad Bar:
This final item may come as a little bit of a surprise for many people, but never underestimate a stoners ability to take advantage of a food source. The plethora of choices will at first seem like a challenge for any stoner, but once you get used to the awesome variety of lettuces, dressings and week-old chicken, you’ll be sitting pretty on one of the nicest salad bars in the city.
One of the best parts about celebrating 4/20 are the meals you eat during the day. DePaul provides only the best food for their students, so pack a bowl and get your meal plan ready for one crazy culinary holiday. The quality may not be the best, but if Stu food is made with anything, it’s love…and Sodium Nitrate.
