THIS IS THE LAST WEEKEND MAGAZINE of the
acadenic year. It's also where we present the results of our
annual reader survey, along with a number of other year-end,
features: a rundown of some humorous Daily gaffes, the
year's best graffiti and staff photos, and a sports roundup.
The following article detailing the results of the poll was co-
written by Weekend Editor Bill Marsh, Weekend Assistant
Editor Rebecca Cox, and Daily staff writer Ted Klein.
BEST BURGER: Bimpy's
For the fifth consecutive year, Blimpy's has run away
with the "special orders don't upset us" category - so sit up,
Burger King, and prepare to fight for the right to build a
burger. Crazy Jim is on the move.
BEST PizzA: Pizzeria Uno's
You can eat it there, or get it delivered, or buy it from a
well-stocked fridge. Hot or cold Uno's has got the best, and
probably only, Chicago-style deep-dish pizza in town. It
comes in vegetarian flavors too!
BEST POPCORN: Tice's
Popcorn has exploded onto the scene, and even though
there were a few determined votes for Paul Newman's
Microwave, the convenience and delicate flavor of Tice's
popcorn has promoted classroom munchings and crunchings,
and more messy floors than you ever thought possible.
BEST HOT DOGS: Red Hot Lover's
Far and away the winner of this category, the Red Hot
with anything on top your heart desires is the Best dog
around. The tofu dog isn't too bad either, but go for the chili
cheesefries at least once. Some poor, misguided sap voted
for A&W's hot dog - get on the clue bus, buddy.
BEST BAGELS: Bagel Factory
Those funny, chewy donuts can be found all over the place
- even in New York. Gorge yourself on the Fragels at Bagel
factory (they're a patented recipe), and maybe sometime try a
garlic bagel with lox and cream cheese, say, right before a

times, we just had to see the place. Trying to pronounce the
wide selection of specialty dishes can keep one occupied for
days. We almost starved before We remembered to ask for
"Opaa!" Their black olives are always fresh, and the Baklava
is always sticky.
BEST ITALIAN FOOD: Cottage Inn
They may not have won the Best Pizza award, but they've
cornered the market on the rest of the Italian food. Eggplant
parmigiana lovers have to go there for it at least once, and
don't forget to order the cold squid salad. Bring your parents
BEST ORIENTAL FOOD: Middle Kingdom
This cozy Main Street eatery won over students with its
menu of authentic, fresh Oriental entrees. It's worth the
BEST MEXICAN FOOD: Chi-Chi's
The selection of Mexican establishments in town is,
obviously, a little scant - how else would a chain restaurant
win? Chi-Chi's does offer good service, an extensive menu
and good drinks. But "sour topping" instead of sour cream?
BEST SEAFOOD: The Real Seafood Co.
For price, we would choose The Whaler at Burger King.
For quality, it's The Real Seafood Co. every time. Gandy
Dancer was a close second, but the nervous types all voted
for the restaurant farthest away from those rumbling trains.
BEST JUNK FOOD: Stop-N-Go
All we can think about is the olive loaf, but there's lots
of snack food in that place, and it's open all night too.
There's probably too much junk food, judging from the size
of some of the customers. Don't forget to measure yourself
against the doorjamb on the way out.
BEST BREAKFAST: Angelo's
Another annual winner. It's just the Best (except on
weekends, when the line starts at 6 a.m.). Angelo's is an
excellent place to end a really late night out on the town with
someone special. Try the blueberry waffles.

D: Do you think in that sense, that
you have to understand jazz, it's
more like classical muasic?
H: That's what it is. You got to
listen to it. I always said a jazz
musician can play rock but a rock
musician can't play jazz, not unless
he's had some training. See, jazz
you have to have an imagination,
Rock, you don't need all that. A
lot of guys go out and learn two
chords, cut a hundred tracks and
make a million dollars... But every -
thing's been done before. Things
like backbeats and double beats that
guys are doing on the drums. That's
all they call rock. Well, that stuff's
been done. I was playing that shit
when I was a kid! But they didn't
call it that then. Now kids sound
like they're pounding nails with
baseball bats. No conception, no
finesse. You can't call yourself and
a drummer and just play rock. You
think you're a drummer? (Laughs.)
D: You've played with all the great
H: That's right, all of them -
Benny Goodman, Basie, Ellington,
D: Is there anyone who really
H: For big bands, Duke and Basie.
D: What were the traits they had?
H: Well, because they had the
feeling and they had people in the
band capable of bringing out what
they wrote... and they knew how to
bring out the individual. Duke
didn't make everyone copy each
other. This was around me when I
was a kid going to the Greyston
Ballroom back in the '20s.
D: Coming up in the '30s and '40s
and being a musician on the road,
you must have met up with a lot of
H: Oh shit did I meet it! There
were plenty of places where the
drinking fountains were white only.
Have to go down in the back to a
toilet in the field where a snake'd
jump up and bite you on the butt
and all that shit.
D: Wasn't that hard to deal with?
You were just trying to bring the
music to people and you had to face
that. How did you not become
H: I just had to swallow it just like
Jackie Robinson did in baseball.
Same thing. It's a hard pill to take.
I don't know many white people
who could do what the colored
people have done, pay the dues
they've paid to get where they are
today. I still see it everyday. It's
just as prevelant now as it was
then. It's just in a different form.
One thing I like about the South
is they come out and let you know
what they think about you. In the
North they hide behind the door.
(Laughs.) But I went through shit,
man. Down South it was a bitch.
We had a fight one time... I was in
Cab Calloway's band and the whole
dance hall jumped on us. We had to
go out the back, a couple of guys
got hit with bottles. All for no
reason... because Cab reached down
to give an autograph to a couple of
In those days the south was real
bad and you didn't have no one on
your side. The sheriffs would be on
the people's side. You'd go into the
restaurant to get something to eat
and be there 20 minutes, people
coming and going, and ask them
'Hey, can I get some service?' then
some guy would come out and say
'We can't serve no coloreds.' Hey,
we didn't come in here to eat no
people. We just want to get some
food. And then they'd tell you you
could take it out. Take it out? Shit!
Or else they'd serve you and after
you got through eating, they'd
break the plate right in front of
you. I mean, man, that is
ridiculous. It's so stupid, man.
D: Maybe that's one reason that
jazz and blues were predominantly
black art forms. There were more
feelings that had to be held back and
were expressed through the music.
H: Yeah, that's probably part of it.
Most of the blues singers like
Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday
were like that. Then later, what
happened was the white music had
died out, all that sweet smelling
shit, then they wanted to take what
you had and make all the money
with it. They always. do that. They
always take what you got.
A lot of people don't realize
these kind of things but I know the
whole history of the whole damn
thing, both sides. I've been around
the world 12 times already. It's still
here. It hasn't left. It's improved a
lot but it's still around.
I don't let that shit bother me.
The hell with it... I just want to
make people happy with my music.
That's all any real musician wants
to do. You want the band, this is
what you get. (Laughs.) Don't
give me problems about black and
white and all that shit. I don't need

Newspapers today face greater chal

two good newspapers are falling
into one another. Around the
country, excellent papers are dying.
But Dailyites know that written
communication is important. We
share a love for the power of the
real press, the printing press. From
this common ground, and from our
shared efforts in pressure situations,
lifetime friendships are formed. No,
