Seniors Rachel Rubin and Alyssa Wohl brought hand-made tissue paper flowers to the workers at the Dewick-MacPhie dining hall yesterday in an effort to say ‘thank you’ and demonstrate the student body’s collective appreciation

“We decided to make the flowers to thank the dining hall staff for coming in when they’re risking their own safety in order to provide some semblance of normalcy for students,” Rubin said.

Wisler Clerjuste, one of the workers at Dewick, said she appreciates the gesture.
“It was very, very fine. Everyone over here was so happy about it,” he said with a smile.
Allie Wollum, a senior and a friend of Rubin’s and Wohl’s, taught the two seniors how to make the flowers this morning quickly and efficiently.
“It was something simple that we could make at home,” Rubin said, “but it’s still a nice thank you gesture.”
If the pair have time to gather more material, they plan to do the same for the workers at Carmichael Dining Hall in the near future.
Before the bombs went off the at the finish line on Marathon Monday, the Daily captured Tufts runners and their supporters on the course as they made their way along the course. Here are some of the happier moments from this week’s race:

In a remote corner of the Daily office, we discovered a dusty box of photos of Tufts from the paper’s early days:

Though most parts of the kava plant contain psychoactive kavalactones, the root is used most frequently.
In addition to selling kava tea, Whole Foods (and many other grocery stores and health food stores) also kava tinctures and supplements that are used to promote relaxation and reduce stress.
I bought some kava tea (made by Yogi) from Whole Foods, and some kava paste from konakavafarm.com. I wasn’t a big fan of the tea.
Kava tea, in action! I used two tea bags to see if I could notice the effects more clearly. I go hard.
Kava paste. Though it looks and smells pretty unappealing, it actually has a relatively neutral, earthy flavor. The label says that “tak[ing] two pea sized servings at a time [will promote] a relaxed, empathogenic experience.” I’m not sure I agree with the “empathogenic” part (the term is typically used in conjunction with substances like MDMA and 2C-B), but whatever.

Tired of getting drinks at Hotung and the bars around Davis? Want a change of scene and environment? For all of you beer (and pretzel) lovers who are 21 and older, there is a new place to get your fix. The Harpoon Brewery recently opened as Boston’s first Beer Hall, resembling those found during the quintessential study abroad vacations to Germany.
Now that its is finally getting warmer, birds are chirping and people are studying and relaxing on the quad, its the perfect time for an adventure. And getting to Harpoon Brewery is a bit of one – take the Red Line to South Station, from there take the Silver Line to Marine Industrial Park, and hop off at the Manulife Builiding which will leave you right at the doorsteps of the Brewery.
Swing by on a weekday afternoon to enjoy a tour that starts every hour between noon and 6PM. There are also tours during the weekend every 20 minutes from 11:20am to 6:00pm. It’s only $5 and it comes with a tasting, souvenir mug, and a portion of the proceeds go to charity.
After indulging in a tour, make your way through the gift store to the Beer Hall itself and enjoy some more beer and a snack. You can either grab a seat at the bar or sit down on the long communal beer hall tables and be served by a waiter. The staff is friendly and helpful and although you may have come for a drink, you’ll stay for the pretzels. These delicious morsels are baked and served hot and soft, plus come with a side of sauces. The beer and cheese sauce is a common favorite, but their mustard – which pairs heavenly with the pretzel – is a true standout.
Harpoon is open Sunday through Wednesday from 11am to 7pm and Thursday through Saturday from 11am to 11pm.
