Okay, so you’re a college student. You’re tired, broke, struggling to keep up with classes, keep up at work, trying to not get sick or hit by a bus, and praying to any deity who will listen that you’ll find the time to bathe and do your laundry sometime within the next three days, and to top it off, everyone you know but you is having a great time, living it up all across the city. You know what I’m talking about, those few minutes spent procrastinating on Facebook, seeing your, ahem, less academically driven friends talking about the great time they had last night at this club, or that bar, or that one band’s concert, entirely insensitive to the broken-legged, forsaken-in-a-ditch corpse of your social life like the dicks they always were.
Fortunately, the time has come for your revenge. And it will be carried out in a manner that all college students are uniquely gifted in: taking advantage of anything and everything to get as much food as possible for as little money as you can get away with. I’m talking about Fire and Ice’s College Night.
Every Monday, 4:00 PM and after, at the Fire and Ice on Berkley st in Boston, anyone with a valid college ID will have the pleasure of Fire and Ice’s unlimited everything buffet for only ten bucks. To put that in our language, this costs the same as a typical Burger King run, give or takes three bucks, except that it is blessedly not Burger King. Bring your aforementioned dickbag friends along, and flaunt your Umass plastic in their faces, smirking on the inside at your tiny, tiny victory. Pile your little bowl dangerously high with bacon, salad, tofu, pasta, whatever you wish. And then balance a hamburger on top of it all just because you can.
Bring your leaning tower of hunger devastation to the always entertaining grill/circus, and as the multitude of chefs clang away and do their chef thing, look at the other people standing next to you, having their food prepared too. It’s the same food, same restaurant, but they all paid twenty dollars, at least, for this feast. Not you, student. Tonight is your night.
And to kill two birds with one stone, not only does this get you a small fortune of food, it also gets you out and away from home. Take a lot of pictures so that the next time you find yourself crushed under the weight of your many responsibilities, probably soon after you walk in the door, you’ll be able to look back on the good times, and remember how sweet it used to be. And how little money you had to spend to get there.
