The other word that comes to mind
is "pricy," but if you hit the right
coupon on the right day, you just
might be in business.
I have just one thing to say about
Geppetto's, at the corner of State
and Hill: ALL YOU CAN EAT.
That's right. On Tuesday and Wed-
nesday, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Gep-
petto's makes all-you-can-eat pizza
available to the public for $4. It's
good pizza, and you might actually
consider ordering it outside of feast
nights, but keep your Tuesdays and
Domino's is an Ann Arbor cor-
poration. Its world headquarters are
located on Plymouth by Rt. 23.
You've had Domino's Pizza, you
know what it tastes like, if you want
The criteria I use in
choosing where to get
pizza from vary each
time, but they include
price, flavor ... degree
to order it, there are at least three on
or near campus.
Little Caesar's is a place where
you will eat probably more than you
want to. The reason for that can be
summed up in two words: Entree
Plus. Located in the Union and in the
North Campus Commons, you can
pay for your Little Caesar's meals
with your meal card, provided you
have an Entree Plus account. Their
pizza is greasy, and not that good,
but it's free (for you, not for your
parents), so enjoy.
There are others in town, like
Pizza Bob's, which is good but the
crust tastes like pita bread, Pizzeria
Uno, with deep-dish Chicago-style
pizza that you most likely cannot af-
ford, and others with names like
Omega Pizza, Anthony's Gourmet
Pizza, and of course Pizza Hut. It's
not that these aren't worth more
specific mention, it's just that I'm
out of space.
So enjoy your pizza, because
you're going to eat it anyway.

Lampkin knows a wide variety
of rhymes. But most of the time he
stays with rhymes that are tried and
"I have to be careful and not
make people angry," he said. "I try

Lampkin added, "How you dress
makes a difference (also). I try to
present a clean appearance (though)
I want to look impoverished."
In Ann Arbor, he has his regular
"I can tell by people's expres-
sions whether they'll give me any-
thing," he said.
"Some people object to me, but
I'm not obnoxious. Some people
feel sorry for me. Some people rec-
ognize my talent," he said. "Some
people are afraid of me. The only
contact many whites have with
Blacks is through TV. There are a
lot of stereotypes."
Lampkin has had his share of
complaints. "Two ladies (who) eat
lunch here everyday got tired of me

Lampkin has had mixed reac-

"Some police don't find any en,

Businesses are sometimes less
than friendly as well.
"(They) feel that we take money

we create the ambiance - tourists

they wouldn't be making money."

"Lots of time when the streets get

PARTY ON LAUREN, PARTY
After you finish some reading,
,refresh with a late afternoon nap,
and shower, it should be just about
time to go out for the evening -
11:30-ish. Under pressure to make it
to a fraternity party before the keg
goes dry, or to a bar before last call,
you are faced with the toughest de-
cision of the day - what to wear?
Urban Outfitters - the
men's/women's/ housewares empo-
rium - offers everything from used,
to super sexy chiffon gowns. And
you can complete your outfit with
shoes, a belt,aa hat, jewelry, and a
lava lamp. A lava lamp?
Caution: it's way too easy to drop
by Urban for the latest copy of Spin
magazine and leave with two
dresses, a beaded curtain, a squirt
gun, a wok, and a bathing suit.
If you are overwhelmed by
Urban's diversity of merchandise,
pre-party at Splash. While this bou-
tique limits its inventory to clothing,
the opportunity, to find something
perfect to wear to that big soir6e is
And don't forget - it's more
important to feel good than to look
good. The perfect underwear, easily
found at Van Buren, can give you
the confidence and comfort to party
TRICK OR TREAT
Long gone are the days when
dressing up is reserved for children.
College students go to such great
lengths to create the perfect
Halloween costume that sometimes
their roommates don't even recog-
nize them. Ann Arbor's spookiest
and wackiest apparel can be found at
It's worth the walk to get a
glimpse of the full costumes for rent,
or the noses, wigs, and capes to sat-
isfy your creative desires. Hint: If
you are a procrastinator, save it for
your schoolwork. Students clean out
the attic long before the night of
Halloween. If you do get caught in
this predicament, there's always the
scary foot pajamas your grandma
gave you for your birthday.
DRESS FOR SUCCESS
If you plan to eventually move
from partying to profession, the job
interview poses an inevitable fashion
However, Jacobson's, an estab-
lished anchor in the turbulent sea of
fashion trends, survives as a pillar of
strength in this you-are-what-you-
7th Avenue, Ltd. takes pride in
its timeless suits, sundresses, and
sportswear, and Laura Ashley of-
fers traditional flowered dresses for
that lasting first impression.
So, if you prefer the fashion ad-
vice in Ladies' Home Journal to the
latest looks in Vogue, these shops
will provide you a leg-up to your
corporate ladder ascension.

the Diag to escape the dead of win-

above 50 degrees, the frisbees start
Students who may chance to have
a spare moment go to the Diag to

If outdoor activities - skiing,
camping, hiking, biking - suit your
needs, you will find all the necessary
equipment and clothing at Bivouac.
Be sure to stop there for thermals, a
parka, and gloves when it starts get-
ting unbearably cold in Ann Arbor
- early September.
If you just caught the Dead show
in Cleveland and are preparing for
the six-hour drive to Albany, you
can pass the time on the Diag play-
ing hackeysack in clothes from In
Flight and Orchid Lane.
In Flight carries the city's widest
variety of Dead paraphernalia, in-
cluding t-shirts, stickers, patches,
and stuffed dancing bears. Check out
Stoned Wear, premium garb made
Orchid Lane runs all the way to
the border and back, bringing clothes
from its own Ecuadorian co-op.
But, being this stylish has its
price - a hefty one. Ann Arbor
clothing stores are not known for
their great bargains. An afternoon of
shopping can easily push a credit
card to its limit.
So save up. Don't waste money
on books and school supplies. Spend
it wisely on fabulous attire for those
