And the Winner is . . . Team Liver!

Slow Food Tufts Trivia Night 2009

Trivia Night was a great success! I can't think of a better way to roll out a new student group than free beer & food, new knowledge, and prizes. Our master of ceremonies, Matthew Hast, kept the evening fun and light while the competition heated-up in 6 rounds of food trivia. As a school of nutrition, we take our food knowledge - trivial or not - very seriously. It literally came down to the final rapid fire photo round when Team Liver secured the winning spot and scored the free trade coffee and chocolate donated by Equal Exchange and the Friedman School Student Council. Coming in a very close second was Team O.C. which won two Friedman School t-shirts.

Many thanks to our sponsors: Mercury Brewing, City Feed & Supply, Equal Exchange, South End Formaggio, and the Friedman School Student Council.

Stay tuned for our next event, a tour of the oldest cheese caves in New England! (For more information go to: http://www.formaggiokitchen.com/huronave/storetour)

Also on the agenda, the Greening Committee will be working with the administration add a touch of verde to the Jaharis Cafe.
