The Elegant Sport of Disc Golf

There are probably quite a few people at HBS that play golf, but only a handful that know about the exciting sport of disc golf (also known as frisbee golf). The sport was invented in the mid 1970’s in Pasadena, California where the first courses originated. With all the sprout eaters in California the sport…

Twisted Sister Live!

On October 24 at approximately 9:18pm, Twisted Sister took the stage at the Hampton Beach (NH) Casino Ballroom, which is neither a casino nor a ballroom, and even the beach part is questionable. My heart was pounding like a group of elvin drummers celebrating a successful harvest. I had never seen Twisted Sister live, but…

Wimbledon Tennis Championships

What is it?Wimbledon is the biggest event in the tennis calendar. The tournament has a long history dating back to 1877, but what makes it really unique is the surface. Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam that still uses grass. Add temperamental weather, sell-out passionate crowds and the All England Club’s ivy clad buildings and…

Golf as Part of EC Curriculum?

Most of us here on campus want to learn golf while at HBS or want to improve his/her game. I would guess that 90% or more of us have, at one point or another, thought about taking a lesson through Shad or through a sectionmate. Here is my proposal: Why don’t we consider it as…

Belgium’s Contribution to the World

The waffles are the first thing people think of. The chocolate comes second. Everyone likes waffles and chocolate. Pressed for more of what Belgium is famous for, and you probably won’t get much more from the average American.

Cambridge Common: Music, Mescun, and More

Oktoberfest, or, well, um, at least Oktoberget-Together.

Wine and Cheese and Beer

Wine and cheese are a seemingly perfect combination. Both equate with craftsmanship and quality and are held in high regard in the food world. They are served together so often that the phrase “wine and cheese party” has entered our daily vocabulary. Unfortunately, the pairing of wine and cheese is often a disastrous one, with…

John Harvard's Brewery Dinner
