(02/07/22 5:00pm)

A short walk from East Campus, straight down West Main Street, lies Cucciolo Osteria, an upscale, yet friendly restaurant, offering “modern Italian Cuisine with a twist.” Brought to Durham by cousins Jimmy (a Duke alum!) and Julian Kim, Cucciolo Osteria is the sister restaurant to their inaugural location in Seoul, South Korea. Best known for their rotating selection of pasta dishes and their curated wine and cocktail offerings, they’ve made a solid impact on the Durham restaurant scene since opening in 2018. 

"RENT" still feels universal, 25 years later

(02/07/22 5:00pm)

Last Sunday, Jan. 30,  I went to DPAC to see “RENT, The 25th Anniversary ‘Farewell Season of Love’ Tour.” RENT was written by Jonathan Larson in 1996 and tells the story of eight friends, new and old, who struggle to make a living and a life at the height of the AIDS epidemic in New  York City. It was my second time seeing the musical and my first time at DPAC. Needless to say, my expectations were high.

(02/07/22 1:00pm)

I have something I need to admit — I don’t particularly like most of Michael Jackson’s music. It’s an unpopular opinion for sure, and it’s not at all an opinion based on anything other than my own personal tastes. I respect “Thriller,”  but I never listen to it for fun. I think “Billie Jean” is catchy, but I’ve never listened to that song outside of social functions. No matter how much I try, I always feel disconnected from his classics.

The meteoric rise of Axel Webber, TikTok's white boy of the month

(02/07/22 1:00pm)

Who shall be crowned white boy of the month? Herein lies the ultimate question confronting the human race: will it be Timothée Chalamet, the ventriloquist-dummy-adjacent breakout star of “Call Me By Your Name”? Or maybe Jacob Elordi, actor of the manipulative but sickeningly hot Public Enemy Number One Nate Jacobs of “Euphoria”?
