The P.S. Top Five

I’m a huge fan of making lists: to-do lists, to-buy lists, music I need to remember to download lists, books I haven’t read lists, etcetera. So, naturally, I thought it would be a good idea to make yet another list: the five things that I am preoccupied with this week, person, place, and things. Fancy…

The Real Flavor Flav

A little last minute, but for those of you who know me, that just means I’m being consistent: At 5:30 tonight, following the screening of the film Food Fight (part of the Princeton Public Library’s Environmental Film Festival), there will be a very cool—and potentially hunger-inducing—discussion panel, “Farming & Flavor,” on what it means when…

I’ll Take Astrophysical Sciences for $1,000, Alex

Resolutions. They hold all the hope and potential that a new year offers—and they also bring 364 days worth of guilt if you leave them behind after the first week. While my friend has nobly committed to reading more books in 2010 (and has made good on that declaration by already finishing one, the show-off),…

Get Your Green On

Ah, the silver screen. A favorite indulgence of mine, to be sure. But in this day and age, when one always needs to feel like one is accomplishing something even when one is sleeping, having an educational and entertaining alternative to a mindless big-screen blockbuster is a cultural coup, to be sure. Enter The Princeton…

The Balanced Guy: On the Wide World

Go for a walk. Seriously, take a hike. And if you want to turn it into a fascinating experience that can fill an entire afternoon, take along an Audubon Field Guide. If you live anywhere in the mid-Atlantic states, I highly recommend you buy the National Audubon Society Regional Guide to the Mid-Atlantic States. It’s…

Pleased to Meet Me

Hello, readers, and happy 2010! Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Jennifer Henderson and I’m the new editor of Princeton Scoop. As we get to know each other, I hope that PS and I will become your go-to resource each week; the site where you’ll acquire the culled-down, digestible-bite version of all the…

New Year's Infusion

Looking for a healthy NY Eve cocktail that also has a kick?  We love the new line of antioxidant drinks from Bai (drinkbai.com) and have a recipe to share: The Mango Baijito 1.) 4-5 large mint sprigs 2.) 1 squeezed lime wedge 3.) 1-2 tablespoons of simple syrup, depending on how sweet and thick you like your…

The Balanced Guy: On Woodworking….

OK, so I’m not really sure where to put this blurb since it doesn’t seem to fit under any of my usual ones. Even “Honeydew” doesn’t really work nor does “Toys”. Therefore I’ve decided to just put it at the top. The picture doesn’t do this place justice, this place being Willard Brothers Domestic &…
