The Risks of Meningitis SEPARI
.~ Meninvnonccral diease is rare. strip-A

By Lindsey Alpert
Daily Staff Reporter
The days of cafeteria workers dishing
out slop may have met their match as res-
idence halls attempt to cater to students
with comment cards, menus planned by
nutritionists and the incorporation of
additional menu items.
"We overhaul the master menu every

summer and then we meet every other
week throughout the school year to
update that;' housing nutrition specialist
Barbara Howe said. "We incorporate any
special events, student activities and pro-
duction problems into choosing a menu."
About 50-75 menu items were added
this past year, most being vegetarian and
vegan dishes. Vegan products do not
contain any animal products, including

meat, milk and eggs. The soup stocks
were also changed so a vegan soup is
always offered. Entrees consist of a
meat, a vegetarian cheese and vegan dish
to allow students to chose. There are also
other items served on the vegetarian
bars, deli bars, yogurt bars and salad bars
that can help serve students' dietary
"Customer demand certainly runs this

process,' Howe said. "We have comment
cards and they weigh heavily on the
If a new addition to the menu is served
and there is a negative student reaction,
the item is removed from the menu. "I
would say that the chicken and broccoli
bake is the most popular entree," Howe
said. "But of course people like ham-
burgers, tacos and lasagna."
Howe, a certified nutritionist, ana-
lyzes all the foods placed on the menus
and prepares nutrition labels that are pre-

sent when the food is served. These cards
include the number of calorie, carbohy-
drate content, protein content and fat
content, as well as what vitamins and
minerals the dish provides.
Some foods are given an MSmart
label, indicating that the food is healthy
and nutritious. In order to be considered
an MSmart dish, the item must meet cer-
tain requirements. Entrees must contain
no more than 12.75 grams of fat and
greater than 10 grams of protein.

"Tonight's the
Night" is a har-
rowing album
fueled largely
by the despair
that comes with

disintegrating relationships and the
deaths of close friends. Young
addresses in particular the guilt and
anguish resulting from the drug
overdoses of his guitarist Danny
Whitten and close friend and roadie
Bruce Berry. The album's perfor-
mances are raw and sudden, produc-
ing a spare and unpolished sound
that contrasts with even the most
abrasive of Young's previous work.
"Tonight's the Night" is also is
full of hope - without glimpses of
light such a work would collapse
under its own weight.
The mood of "Tonight's the Night"
was anguish, despair, sadness and
naked emotion. Young speaks of the
frailty of life when he addresses Berry
in the title track: "Late at night when
the people were gone he used to pick
up my guitar/and sing a song in his
shaky voice that was real as the day
was long."
Other tracks range from the airy and
touching "New Mama" to "Roll

room sing-along. On the haunting

The emotional range of "Tonight's

seems appropriate for an album that
Young once succinctly stated to be "all
about life, dope and death." Listeners
accustomed to polished folk records
such as "Harvest" will be surprised at
the raw, uncompromising sound of
"Tonight's the Night." In fact,
Warner/Reprise considered the record
to be commercially difficult. However,
the uncommercial elements of
"Tonight's the Night" are the very
ones that give it such urgency and

Drank till you drop
A festival of great tasting beer

By Darren Ringel
Daily Arts Writer
The football team may have lost last
Saturday, but those who decided to
attend the beer tasting event at
Dominick's that evening certainly
This 8th Annual Microbrewery Beer
Tasting featured I1 Michigan micro-
breweries that combined to bring about
50 unique bers. Some of these brew-
eries included the more well-known
brands such as Bell's, Arcadia and
Michigan Brewery while some newer
and less-known brands such as Local
Color, Boyne River and Founder's also
tagged along. The event had an admis-
sion fee of S10 that included all the
beer one could drink as well as free bar
snacks and garlic bread. Obviously,
with such inexpensive pricing, the pur-
pose of this event was advertising
instead of profit marketing.
Overall, the event served beer that
would please a wide range of taste
buds, including brown ales, pale ales,
white ales, amber ales, red lagers,
stouts and even some fruity ales. Most
of the individuals at the event were
men craving thick and full-bodied
beers, but the beer tasting also included
some light and fruity beers that are
more appealing to the mild beer
drinker. For example, LSA senior
Kristie Thelen said, "I wasn't a huge
fan of some of the thicker beers. I pre-
ferred more of the fruitier ones such as

Roffey's Raspberry Ale and Traverse
City's Lemonade Lager."
For all of the legit beer lovers out
there, here are some of my personal
recommendations: Traverse City
Brewing Company's Stout, . New
Holland's White Ale and Michigan
Brewing Company's Pumpin' Pumkin
All of these beers listed above are
considered specialty beers and most
likely will not be found at the local 7-
I1. You might have better luck search-
ing at more gourmet stores such as
Whole Foods, Busch's or Big Ten
Party Store. Also, since most of these
breweries do not have a nationwide
clientele, prices will be slightly higher
than your average beer, ranging from
around $7 to S12 per six pack.
However, the extra few dollars and the
longer drive are well worth it.
This event was definitely a crowd-
pleasing success. Luckily, for those
beer connoisseurs who are hitting
themselves for not making it to this
year's beer tasting, I have news for you
that will immediately remove your
frown. Tonight Arbor Brewing
Company is having an Octoberfest beer
tasting event that costs $20 admission
and features 15 Octoberfest beers from
all around the nation. This is a little
more expensive than Dominick's event
and it doesn't feature as many beers,
but there's no better way to kick off the
Halloween season than to drink a few
fresh, seasonal beers.
