But Wall Street Pizza cares: The restaurant sent out promotions for its Study Pack Special (one large pizza, six wings and two sods) in anticipation of finals yesterday. We’d never thought of studying there, but now…
Print lives on. At least for now. The deadline to apply for the Lohmann and Van Sinderen Printing Prizes is today at 5 p.m., accepting hard-copy design work demonstrating exemplary “skill, discipline and imagination.”
