Readers 'picks for best of the

'U'ask: What

UNIVERSITY
Continued from Page 6B
Everyone who's anyone has classes in
AH. Only squares avoid it like the
plague.
Angell Hall (Best Bathroom) If you
like being overwhelemed by the nasty-
ass stank, then sure, the commodes in

Angell are the place for you. What
masochists stuffed the ballot boxes
for this one?
South Quad (Best Residence Hall)
In slang it's known simply as Squad.
And so what if it's always loud in the
halls? It's got a pseudo "executive din-
ing room," don't ya know? That's
because the execs at the 'U' are none

other than Crawford and Co. The little
people on campus are only allowed to.
mingle with the athletes here and at
the CCRB.
Bursley (Best Residence Hall
Cafeteria) If you're willing to make
the trek to the Bur-Lodge, then you'll
be handsomely rewarded by a hot
steaming cup of the best all-around

residence hall-style food in Ann
Arbor. Of course, if you don't make
the trek, then you'll be treated to a hot
steaming cup of plain old dorm food
anywhere else you eat on campus.
Joint House (Best Co-op) OK, OK,
OK, the name does carry a certain
connotation. But don't judge the co-
opers on such a trifle. There's so much
more to communal living than just
passing small, blazing objects around
a circle. You can pass large, smoke-
filled bongs around in a circle, too,
you know. That or take more fantastic
voyages than Coolio.
Pi Kappa Alpha (Best Fraternity to
Party With) We don't know what dis-
tinguishes the Pikes' parties so much,
but we do know they won the a capel-
la singing competition for Greek
Week. Well done, men.
Delta Gamma (Best Sorority to
Party With) They may have only two-
thirds as many letters in their name as

Anyone for
take-out?

in a name?
the Pikes, but they do have signifi-
cantly less back hair.
AIESEC (Best Student Group/
Organization) We've heard they have
something to do with business, but
aren't sure. We've also heard they
send business students to other coun-
tries, which sounds like grounds for
canonization.
Bram Elias (Best MSA Member)
Sarah Pray aside, this guy is one hell
of an MSA member, or so goes the
word on the street. Unfortunately, he's
not one of the illustrious Elias broth-
ers, nor does he own a Big Boy fran-
chise. Go figure. But working for the
people is certainly as admirable as
serving pie seven days a week during
the annual strawberry festival.
Naked Mile (Best Campus
Tradition) Check this recipe: Add sev-
eral thousand parts naked students,
one part mile-long run and several
more thousand parts clothed specta-
tors. Mix in a dash of creepy guys
with video cameras and a sprinkling
of being oh so afraid you'll end up on
the Internet somewhere and you've
got the best damn tradition anywhere.
Law Library (Best Place to Study)
Not to be confused with the winner of
the award for "best place on campus to
have sex in public." Also known as the
best place on campus to be informed
that you'll be appearing on the next
season of "The Real World."
Grad (Best Library) Sweet Jesus.
The people have spoken and the
answer is the Grad. Traditionally
known as the place to study and have
sex in public (since the UGLI is the
place to chat with your peeps), the
Grad is truly the place to be when you
need to get it done. Some people like
to get lost in the pages of a good solid
book, but others find themselves dis-
oriented in stack after stack of them.
The Grad's the happenin' place. Word.
Angell Hall (Best Computing
Center) Chalk up two awards this year
for the stately-looking building on
State Street. Check your e-mail, print
that paper, chat with your compadres
and pace the aisles endlessly ... wait-
ing for a computer. It all goes down in
the Fishbowl, day in and daysout.
Winning the Game (Best Thing
About Football Saturday) Tailgaiting
ran a close second in this category, but
for some reason, people at this school
like to win. Go figure. Now if only we
could rewind the 1997 season, we'd be
assured of this 'best' every football
Saturday.
Football (Best Sports Team) They
bring in the bucks, the fans and the
attention, both good and bad. Let's
face it, without Carr and company, the
University would be a completely dif-
ferent place. Many students would be
without a reason to live. And arts edi-
tors like me, for example, might not be
able to cash in on my very cheap $85
season ticket block.

Scorekeeper's (Best Sports Bar)
This athletically interactive bar can
keep anyone busy for hours with its
pool tables, darts, electronic trivia
games and big screens. Not to men-
ti6n the beer selection is one of the
most reliable in town. This place is
suitable to enjoy any athletic event
on TV whether you're watching the
neighborhood foosball champi-
onships or the Super Bowl. In a town
where sports are loved by (nearly)
all, this bar fits Ann Arbor like a
glove.
Zingerman's (Best Deli) Step
aside, New Yorkers, because your
favorite hometown deli has got a
match and it's right here in Ann

The Michigan Daily - Weekend, etc. M
Readers' tastes in area eats run
gamut from funky to fanciful

Arbor. Obviously, price is not an
issue when you're dealing with the
number one deli in town because
every penny spent is well worth it.
As a matter of fact, the pastrami at
Zingerman's is nationally rated as
"the best in the country" and it's only
a ten minute walk away from cam-
pus. However, don't forget to check
out the freshly concocted loaves of
bread because Zingerman's wide
array of flavors will appease any-
one's taste buds. The only unlikeable
aspect of this deli is the agony they
put you through when deciding what
to order off the mouth-watering
menu.

authentic cuisine purveyors have no
shame in their restaurant as the
kitchen is wide open for your view-
ing pleasure the second you walk in.
From the prime Main Street location
to the tasty and uniquely seasoned
dishes, you can't go wrong with this
eatery.
McDonald's (Best Fries) Year
after year after year, Mickey D's has
been voted the best fries nationwide.
It is no surprise that the food con-
noisseurs in Ann Arbor feel the
same. If you had a choice between
authentic steakhouse fries for $5 per
order or jumbo sizing it at
McDonald's, let's be honest, there's
no question that the golden-crisp
McDonald's fries would still come
out on top. As for the rest of their
menu, well, it sure does remind you
how good the fries ate.
Jimmy John's (Best Subs) Simple
and to the point, Jimmy John's makes
their subs with some of the finest
French bread in town accompanied
with the perfect proportion of meats.
The portions are not too big or too
small. Whether you're looking for a
quick lunch or a tasty late night sub,
JJ's is even more ubiquitously the
way to go now that they have two
campus locations. This place perfect-
ly exemplifies the beauty of simplic-
ity.
The Gandy Dancer (Best Service,
Best Place for Your Folks to Treat)
Probably the only place anyone in

town has sat at a restaurant and fel
their table shake because of the train
rushing by 20 feet away. If that does
n't make your heart pound, then wha
does? With the incredible service
headed by Barb Stratman and the
grand piano that does double duty as
a bar, your date is guaranteed to be
satisfied. Also, with some of the bes
desserts in town, you can't look past
the aphrodisiatic qualities of choco-
late. Make a night of it here with
your date, family or soft-heartec
