Staff editorial: Good investment

Surprising many students, the University extended Aramark’s food service contract for 10 years. Along with this extension comes Aramark’s $4.5 million investment in a completely remodeled J Street. Aramark recognized that to continue serving GW students profitably, it needed to provide a product capable of competing with area establishments accessible through Colonial Cash. Luckily for […]

Bourbon chicken recipe

It’s summer in the city, and it just isn’t complete without a few annual summer traditions, like weekend beach breaks, night games at the baseball park and barbecue fresh off the grill.

Letters to the editor

Well spent I would just like to remark that I was disappointed in the Hatchet’s coverage of Monumental Celebration Commencement Weekend.

GW, Aramark sign 10-year contract

The dining service provider Aramark inked a new deal with the University last month that will allow it to operate campus venues for the next 10 years. Both Aramark and GW officials declined to disclose the terms of the new contract, which replaces a five-year deal that expired in late June. But Louis Katz, the […]

Hatchet Arts Editor How do you look at a stranger? Without ever having a conversation, do you think you could convince yourself that someone is evil? In The Radiant Abyss, the first play fully commissioned by the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, stalwart businesswoman Erin Skidmore (Janis Dardaris) has no trouble convincing herself that members of […]
