The other day my friends and I dined at Cafe NOLA. The Cajun cafe, cleverly deriving its name from New Orleans, LousianA, is located just a hop-skip-&-a-jump from campus down on lower Union Street near the Webster House corner of campus. We tried a variety of down-south specialties, including delicious crab cakes, interesting fried oysters, and — my personal favorite — alligator bites! And although I prefer the fishy-chickeny hybrid fresh from Florida, Cafe NOLA’s version didn’t disappoint. Treat yourself to a mini vacation at the southern-oasis-in-Schenectady, especially with Mardi Gras right around the corner! Who knows? You might run into one of Union’s other super student bloggers, Adah, who works at the adorable joint! Check out her awesome blog here!
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
