There is only one proper way to celebrate MLK day....that's right, Popeyes and grape soda!

Could barely get out of bed today... I can't believe 285 Kent is actually gone. Pull down the shade and make the world go away!

today is a holiday for a great negro, how come the bv staff is working?

While BV certainly respects the tremendous legacy of MLK, Andrew Sacher didn't have school today, so he was able to come in and work a few extra hours.

Does the BV office offer free Robust Hummus Platters on the holidays? If so, where may I apply?
