December 13, 2019

Red Robin is the best place to get a well done burger! Their service is amazing, even if it gets busy all the time. The customer service is always great when I’m there, the workers always ask if everything is good or if I need another soda. Not much waiting for servers, because their servers are on the b...

Impossible Whopper Review

December 12, 2019

Being a vegan, especially in a town like Topeka, can be tough. While a few restaurants are beginning to include vegan options, many of these are ludicrously expensive and taste mediocre at best. There are barely any fast food options for vegan food, which can be annoying when you don’t feel like payi...

I go to Chick-Fil-A at least once a week and it’s the best thing ever! Their service is just amazing! I have never had a bad food item from any Chick-Fil-A location and never been disappointed.

Olive Garden Review

Rachel Woodbury, Writer

November 22, 2019

A taste of Italy.  Olive Garden has been my favorite restaurant for as long as I can remember.  Along with their great American version of Italian food, they have extraordinary customer service. Most of us know the jokes about the waiter filling up our cups before they are even close to empty. Ho...

As the holiday season rolls around, I can’t help but think about the memories I have had during this wonderful time of year. One main memory that comes to mind is having to watch The Polar Express every single year at my elementary school, Wanamaker.  Did anyone else’s school gather them durin...

After school, I decided to take a different way home so I could avoid going down Wanamaker. Wanamaker is where most of the crashes are before and after school. After I got rear ended last year, I want to avoid any possibility of crashes. I also wanted to change routes because I realized that when I ...

The Giver Review

The Giver Review

Lauren Miller, Writer

September 17, 2019

Novels take readers on a journey. Authors create mystical lands and characters as real as the people we see in our everyday lives. The plots that make up these novels are often outlandish and unrealistic; however, they often have hidden themes and social commentary to back up their heart-racing narr...
