Benefits and boos greet CCR B's entrenchment in campus ftness

ing off Another intriguing student com-
plaint is the CCRB's location. Some stu-
dents lament the perceived "freshman
bias" inherent in the CCRB's placement
at the corner of Geddes and Washtenaw.
"Well, it's perfect for the kids in dorms
on the Hill, or in East Quad, but once

you're living off campus- it -seens like
more trouble than it's worth to get there,"
said Steffi Rolin, an education junior.
Stephen Farley, an LSA junior, con-
curred. "Your freshman year, all you do
is get fatter anyway," he said. "It's after
that that you're ready to take off the
weight., so you need to start spending
more of your time at the CCRB."
These viewpoints are relevant, but

they neglect the University's logical
impetus to locate the CCRB in its cur-
rent location, adjacent to the School of
Kinesiology. Furthermore, the
University is limited in the property
onto which it can expand, and for any-
one who needs to travel additional dis-
tance to the CCRB, the journey could
easily be turned into a jog or vigorous
bike ride. Then one's workout would

have a built-in warm-up and cool-down,
and be all the more packed with poten-
tial for better physical health.
For another explanation for the
CCRB's continued popularity in the
face of criticisms from a variety of stu-
dents with diverse concerns, look no
further than the list of winners in this
year's Best of Ann Arbor poll. Beside

mecca, readers voted it "Best Hangout
for Jocks."
While the two categories possess a
smidgen of redundancy (and the defin-
tion of "jock" is open for debate), the
extra winning tally highlights the
CCRB's additional role. Quite separate-
ly from its practical, intended function,
the CCRB has taken on a thriving status
as a social outlet.
For those willing to appreciate its
charms, especially with friends willing
to meet the utilitarian CCRB can be a
sufficiently gracious host. The antisep-
tic yet skanky ambience of the locker
rooms are pretty much a universal con-
stant, but the facilities are extensive
enough to thin out the effect, and the
equipment at students' disposal - from
basketball hoops to shower heads --are
more reliably functional than most.
Besides, for the limited time that
comprises a college career, it's tough to
beat the price.

of the Union and let the itinerary-
planning extravaganza begin.
Steve and Barry's (Best
University Fan Apparel) Thanks to
Steve and Barry's magnanimous
"Buy one, get 38 free" deals, you
can outfit both sides of your extend-
ed family with maize and blue para-
Student Bike Shop (Best Bicycle
Sales/Repair) With the right encour-
agement, the folks at Student Bike
Shop would be more than happy
find you a Schwinn with a banana
seat, a handlebar basket and a honk-
ing horn (baseball cards for the
spokes are not included, though).
Tanfastic (Best Tanning Salon)
Whether you just want to maintain
the George Hamilton look all sea-
son or need to protect yourself from
that nasty UV radiation on the
Southern Shores, Tanfastic (up near
North Campus) is the salon to bake
your bod. And if that doesn't win ya
over, stop in just to meet their
superhot manager Carmen.
Tower Records (Best Compact
Discs) When the bargain bin
includes albums by Stevie Wonder,

Paul Simon and the Velvet
Underground, it's a pretty safe bet
that you'll find all the hits at Tower
Records. And that means
Candlebox, too.
Ulrich's (Best Textbooks, Best
Art Supplies) For deals on both
paints and painting implements, and
even books on painting, Ulrich's
once again reigns supreme among
voters - Lars would be proud.
University Flower Shop (Best
Florist) The perfect place to find the
best pansies and tulips on campus.
And they sell flowers, too.
Urban Outfitters (Best Women's
Clothing) What kitsch-loving co-ed can
resist baby-style t-shirts emblazoned
with cutesy slogans like "Naughty Girl"
and "Tasty Kiss?" Not many, according
to the almighty poll, which ranked the
ultra-trendy Urban Outfitters as the
number one apparel choice for females
on campus.
Value Village (Best Thrift/Used
Clothing) Have you ever wanted to
look like Rudy Ray Moore's
Dolemite character? The courteous
staff at Value Village can probably
help you find a lime green leisure
suit, a Shaft-style leather jacket and
a cane/fedora combo that will per-
fectly suit your pimpin' needs.


A Best Movie Theater
o quantity
By Erin Podolsky
Daily Arts Writer
Nobody was more excited than I
when the Goodrich Quality 16 set up
camp on Jackson Road last year. It
almost made up for the betrayal and
devastation I felt when the Ann Arbor
1-2, also a Goodrich theater, closed up
shop over the summer. The 1-2's loss
depleted the within-walking-distance
campus cinema tally by one-third, and
if you're even one-sixth the movie glut-
ton I am, well, that ain't good. So while
the Q16 megaplex is a car ride away
(unless you're a sucker for punishment
and want to walk the several miles), it's
worth the effort: Stadium seating is a
plus, sure, but the deciding factor in
getting me out to that neck of the woods
is the overall value of the place.
The building itself is easy to miss -
some odd zoning restriction keeps the
owners from putting up a sign announc-
ing themselves to the world, but there it

Quality 16 patrons are seldom disappointed
is nestled amidst the multitude of car
dealerships on that side of town.
Coupons for free popcorn are available
virtually everywhere (including the Ann
Arbor Current magazine rack that's often
present in the theatre lobby) and student
discount ticket prices make the Quality
16 a genuine bargain for students look-
ing for a movie thrill, cheap or not.
Sometimes the quality of the Quality is a
bit lacking; the projection of picture and
sound are recurringly bungled by the 12-
year-olds that run the place, but that's a
minor price to pay for such an economi-
cal field trip.
The Quality 16 shows a wide variety
