The finer things
As the temperature finally drops and midterm season comes back, the need for warmth and caffeine becomes more and more urgent. While many, including myself, swear by coffee, there exists a portion of students who are swayed more by tea. This less popular and often less caffeinated drink seems to be overshadowed by the power that the java has, especially during days when you need to finish a paper at 4 am. While coffeehouses are too numerous to count, locations to experience something other than the HUDS-provided English Breakfast or Green Tea are limited. To find these places and fully experience the joy of drinking unique teas, I gave up coffee for a weekend and embarked on a tasting of some of the teas Harvard Square provides.
Harvard students are known for being creative. Sure, they can craft resumes that resemble works of art, write Pulitzer-worthy papers on books they've never read, and spin epic tales about their accomplishments during job interviews at McKinsey. But how creative are they on the one holiday where it really matters the most: Halloween? To solve this great mystery, on Friday Flyby scoped out the costume scene on campus to bring you some of the most creative, the most weird and the most Harvard relevant costumes of the crop.
