As a Stony Brook student, it is very easy to get tired of bouncing between West Side Dining, East Side Dining, and Roth. Here are a few options to let your inner foodie run loose!

1. Crazy Beans

If you want to travel back in time to a 50s style diner with fantastic food and fancy, hand-crafted coffee drinks, then Crazy Beans is a necessary stop for any Seawolf. Only about 10 minutes off campus, this restaurant features both a breakfast and lunch menu, great service, and is located within a very cute little village, right by a beautiful walking path and duck pond!

2. Mario's Italian Restaurant

Mario's is a beautiful Italian restaurant located about 10 minutes from campus, featuring a fantastic menu of pastas, seafood, and mouth-watering daily specials. The wait staff is very attentive and the ambiance makes you believe you could be sitting next to Frank Sinatra.

3. Grumpy Jack's

If you're looking for a fun, casual sports bar with not-your-average bar food, then Grumpy Jack's is your spot! Contrary to the name, everyone working here is super nice and attentive. If you've heard the name Grumpy Jack's before, it was probably after hearing the words, "best wings on Long Island." Seriously, if you're looking for a spot to watch the game, I would recommend having a burger and wings at Grumpy Jack's.

4. Toast

If you're ever in need of a mimosa and brunch after a long night of studying, look no further than Toast. Toast is a cozy, quirky breakfast and lunch spot in the heart of Port Jeff. They're famous for their unique boho/artist decor, fantastically delightful breakfasts, and beyond satisfying lunches.

5. Del Fuego

A Tex-Mex bar with more than enough tequila to drown a saloon full of patrons. They know how to do the basics such as nachos, tacos, and quesadillas better than anyone around, along with specialty dishes that make you come back over and over again.

430 N Country Rd, St. James, NY 11780

6. Ruvo East

Tucked away in the Village of Port Jefferson, Ruvo features a diverse menu where everything is very clearly made with a lot of care and thought. Their Prix Fixe menu can definitely help out by giving you the chance to try a few courses for a set price, just so you can experience the craftsmanship of Ruvo's chefs. The ambiance is rustic and comfortable, yet upscale at the same time. If you can afford to go to Ruvo, I would recommend doing so ASAP.

7. Se-Port Delicatessen

If you attend Stony Brook University, are planning to go to Stony Brook, considering applying to Stony Brook, or if you have ever even heard of Stony Brook University, I can almost guarantee that you have heard of Se-Port Delicatessen. Se-Port is famous on Long Island for dishing out absolutely monstrous sandwiches that can please any appetite. Their most popular sandwiches include the Gasm, the Boone, and the Queens.

Although they are most famous for their sandwiches, they appeal to all customers by offering açaí bowls, chopped salads, quesadillas, burritos, power bowls, hamburgers, brownies, cookies, and pretty much anything you could be craving.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

Hey,

So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Sincerely,

Me

5 Things You Need To Know About Thinx Underwear

Those of you with a uterus, listen up.

I first heard about Thinx underwear two years ago while on a subway in Washington DC. I thought the whole idea of leakproof underwear sounded a bit too much like diapers and brushed the product aside. Fast forward two years, my mom states that she is going to buy a pair to try and offered to get me one too. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did!

If you're not familiar with Thinx allow me to explain. It's a company that prides themselves on creating underwear specifically designed for individuals to wear during their periods. Looking at the reviews, everyone seemed to love them, and after trying them out for myself, I must say I like them quite a lot. Here are a few important things to know about Thinx underwear.

1. It doesn’t always replace your pads/tampons

Thinx may not replace tampons, but it can help cut back the amount you use.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/scotland-free-tampons-shutterstock.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=618&h=410&crop=1

I learned this the hard way that if you have a heavy flow, you can't wear Thinx on its own. If you have a light flow, you could get away with only wearing these, but for us poor souls with heavy flows, I recommend making these your new period underwear. You never have to worry about any leaks, even at night!

2. They don't stain

Behold! No bloodstains!

If you leak onto this underwear, fear not. Merely rinse them in the sink and then throw them in the wash like normal and boom! Clean underwear. No more ugly stained underwear to keep in the corner of your drawer.

3. There’s a bunch of cute designs/colors

There's something for everyone!

One thing I must say about Thinx is that they have a wide variety of options. There are several different cuts, and almost all of them come in different colors options as well. They seem to be introducing new colors all the time, so keep an eye out for one you like.

4. They are super comfy!

These feel just like normal underwear.

When I got my pair, I was worried that this underwear would feel like wearing a diaper or something else uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all! This underwear when you're wearing it feels like normal underwear, and while you're washing it, it feels like a swimsuit.

5. They donate to a good cause

Everyone should have access to period products. Period.

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0795/1599/t/248/assets/menstrual-equity-slider-1.jpg?226286

For every pair of underwear that you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need. It seems like most are sent to developing countries where women do not have access to proper menstruation hygiene products. In addition to this, Thinx was designed to help cut back the number of disposable pads entering landfills. They designed this underwear to be a more sustainable alternative for people with periods!
