The Michigan Daily - mi
Each week, one Ann Arbor staple menu item becomes a
battlefield as Daily Arts editors butt heads over
which restaurant makes it best.
PUMPKIN PIE LATTE
324 South State Street
This isn't just some paltry pumpkin
spice latte - no, this is the real McCoy.
The coffee crafters at Espresso Royale add
condensed milk to lend a certain thick-
ness to the drink. With sweet aumtumnal
tones blending into the creamy texture,
this is the only pumpkin pie you can drink
through a straw.
PUMPKIN BAGEL & CREAM CHEESE
1760 Plymouth Road
A short walk from the Bursley bus stop
on the last frontier of campus lies a quaint
bagel shop. Bagel Fragel houses a pump-
kin flavor explosion so intense that fallout
shelters are required nearby. A pumpkin
bagel base poses no threat to anyone's
canine teeth while pumpkin cream cheese
melts away like ice on an Arctic glacier.
PUMPKIN PECAN CHEESECAKE
326 Maynard Street
A bite of Cafe Ambrosia's pumpkin
pecan cheesecake is a treat no matter what
it includes - the moistly bready crust, the
cinnamon-topped sweet pecans or that
unbelievably pumpkin-y, cheesy interior.
Anyone staying in Ann Arbor for Thanks-
giving need only stop here fortheir squash-
PUMPKIN PIE ICE CREAM
Ben &T Jerry's
304 South State Street
Close your eyes and taste it: A frozen
treat served in thick scoops, rich with
pumpkin-y flavor. The signature Ben &
Jerry's treat has liberal amounts of pie
crust morsels folded into the creamy
mixture, and each bite inspires satisfac-
tion. This flavor is a limited edition - it
only comes out once a year. So there's no
excuse not to get it while you can.
If the E3W and the Gargoyle were involved in a gladiator fight,
who would win?
Probably the Gargoyle because it has the meat.
"Cabaret" is happening this weekend.
I know, I'm going.
Have you seen the show before?
This will be my first time, so I'm excited.
Do you enjoy anything that's pumpkin flavored?
Pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks are the bomb. They can't be
beaten, except by their white chocolate peppermint mochas.

The only thing more impres-

most beloved eight-piece finds
the energy to record new mate-
rial and play live shows.
The lead single off the
upcoming concept album Undun
consists of a sleek and silky
groove, but proves to be quite
the downer. Big K.R.IT. guests
on the first verse, detailing the
unlikely depression of a certi-

to "Oceanfronts, rolling blunts
with model chicks / And saying
grace over lobster and steak."
Black Thought delivers a hard-
When the last scene in a
trailer features Jonah Hill
being hit by acar and then say-
ing, "I think
I just .
my pants," 21 Jump Stet
one gets a
pretty good Columbia
sense of the
movie. "21 Jump Street" looks
like a piece of juvenile non-
sense, an unimaginative mix-
ture of high school comedy,
action movie and buddy cop
It's not a good sign when the
amount of exposition in the
trailer alone is tiring to keep
track of. But the plot, roughly,
seems to be that Channing
Tatum ("Dear John") and an
unrecognizably slim Jonah
Hill ("Get Him to the Greek"),
old high school acquaintances,
meet in police academy. Tatum
excels at the physical aspects
of the academy, Hill at the
intellectual, and the two start
an unlikely friendship. After
