Recipes from Rome: Weigh in on Italy's staple food

Rome is famous for four pastas — cacio e pepe, gricia, amatriciana, and carbonara. If you walk into any trattoria in Rome, you are likely to find at least two or three of these pastas on the menu (if not all four).  The Romans are very, very territorial when it comes to food, especially when it comes to their pastas.

How March Munchies winner Hansel 'n Griddle grew from small business to community favorite

As the inaugural March Munchies progressed, and the field narrowed by the week, Nicholas Komandis paid increasingly more attention to the competition.  The owner of Hansel n’ Griddle, one of the 32 restaurants competing in the contest held by the Daily Targum to determine the best eatery in the Rutgers—New Brunswick area, began calling his old fraternity brothers, friends, family — anyone he could get — to let them know about the competition. His restaurant began advertising the competition on napkins both in-store and on deliveries, informing customers of its existence without encouraging them to vote either way. “It was fun,” Komandis said.

Jazzy Jon and the Hard Bop Hitters perform jazz tunes for Garden State Ale House

In the downstairs dining room of the Garden State Ale House with food that’s way too fancy for the average Rutgers student to afford, The New Brunswick Jazz Project is back at it again with another Emerging Artists Night. On April 11, Jazzy Jon and the Hard Bop Hitters swooned the audience with their renditions of their favorite jazz tunes as well as originals written by the band’s front man and guitarist Jonathan Kirschner, a Mason Gross School of the Arts sophomore. Other band members included Stephen Yee on alto saxophone, Ryan Permaul on bass, and Nick Dekens on drums.

Drag Show fabulously celebrates inclusion, creativity at U.

The diversity and inclusivity in which Rutgers University prides itself with was fabulously showcased Thursday night at Demarest Hall’s Spring Drag Show, where students came out to perform and show support for the LGBTQ community. Aidan Cushing, a resident of Demarest Hall and organizer for the event, said the tightknit and supportive community of Demarest is what makes the Hall a perfect location for the show.

About 1,800 students playfully emptied packets of powdered flower petals on themselves, their friends and strangers Friday afternoon for Rutgers’ “Holi Moli,” on the Livingston campus to celebrate the Hindu tradition, Holi. Holi, also known as the “Festival of Colors” or the “Festival of Love,” is a spring celebration widely celebrated in areas of South Asia and is meant to welcome the arrival of spring and the end of winter, as well as the triumph of good over evil.

‘Holi Moli’ will bring Hindu festival of color to Rutgers

On Friday, April 14, the Rutgers Hindu Students Council (HSC) will bring a cultural color wars to the Banks as a way to celebrate Holi at Rutgers. Many people only associate the Hindu festival of colors with the excitement of throwing color powder on a sunny spring day, but there is a whole history behind the holiday that is often forgotten about. Most people do not realize that Holi occurs at the same time — at the beginning of spring — every year for a reason.
