ITHACA- In hopes of getting their hands on a highly coveted salad from the popular campus dining establishment, students slept outside Statler Hall’s Terrace Restaurant last night to be able to be the first ones online for the 10:30 a.m. opening.
“We brought all sorts of supplies to last us the night. Tents, sleeping bags, food, lanterns. You name it,” listed Port Washington native Rebecca Blum. “I’m thinking about a small salad with chick peas, tomatoes, cucumbers and balsamic vinaigrette. I can’t finish a large.”
“Ooh, that’s sounds good,” replied fellow salad hopeful Nicole Hirsch while building a fire with a piece of flint, sporting hiking boots and a 23-tool swiss army knife.
At press time, diners were dismayed to find that by 2 o’clock, there was no line.
