Two seconds on the lips is two inches on the hips.

Before you reach for that apple pie, think of the space between your thighs.

If you’ve still got your Halloween candy load, props to you, but that’ll run out soon. Thanksgiving is coming up and the feast will be spectacular as ever. The last round of midterms are forcing you to reach for your fourth bowl of cereal at two in the morning. It’s hard enough trying to maintain weight while at college, especially in Berkeley where food is a way of life. The Clog understands, sympathizes and hands you an imaginary handkerchief.

However, this doesn’t prevent us from going balls-out when it comes to our latest crawl: Fantastic French fries in Berkeley.

Sorry, but your thighs will have to deal with a tiny bit of less space if you decide to wholeheartedly jump in with us on exploring several of the places with golden, fabulously crispy, unbearably sultry potatoes that your mouth can indulge in.

Bon appetit.

datingFor vegans and vegetarians, it can be hard to find people who share your beliefs — especially in a place like Berkeley, which is so clearly devoid of the diet-conscious. Snarkiness aside, meeting people can pose somewhat of a challenge, and Karen Brighten Events is here to help.

On Wednesday, Aug. 3, from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Karen Brighten Events will hold a speed dating event at Saturn Cafe for vegans, vegetarians and “veg-curious.” The speed dating segment is 45 minutes long, with each particular round lasting 3 minutes.

The first event is for heterosexuals above the age of 21, but they are planning an LGBT event as well. There are only 50 tickets, so if you’re interested, you better act quickly.

160304502_a0d91cdfcb_m“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” Remember our favorite childhood chant, the one we’d constantly annoy our parents with as soon as they stepped into the door with our cherished vanilla ice cream, fudge brownie and that gooey chocolate syrup? Well, some things never change; we still anticipate the first bite of that creamy, sugary treat. Let’s hope those screams are just talk though.

Well, you might just let those inner childhood screams out when you try Saturn Café’s delicious hot fudge sundae, cool and refreshing for a summer night with the right amount of chocolate sauce to warm your heart. It’s located on Oxford Street and attending this parlor is a must. The price is almost as delicious as the sundae itself, only $5.25 for a huge scoop!

The chocolatey goodness coupled with the glitzy, glamorous old-fashioned décor of the diner is enough to send us straight to another planet!
