The Mac Mart has rightfully proclaimed itself “the first mac ‘n’ cheese food truck in Philadelphia” and is one of the most prominent on 33rd Street. It is easy to spot due to its vibrant pink exterior and a delicious variety of mac ‘n’ cheese-based items to fulfill anyone’s comfort-food needs. Marti Lieberman, the Drexel [...]

Mumford & Sons took the stage in Camden, N.J., for the second straight night Feb. 17 and played what would be the last stop on their North American East Coast tour. The date was added after their first scheduled show at the Susquehanna Bank Center sold out in a matter of seconds. The band, which [...]
Have you ever had the urge to eat something out of the ordinary? That longing that emanates from deep within the pit of your stomach, the one that moans and cries out in agony for a delicacy it knows it wants but just can’t seem to find? The one that begs not only for sustenance [...]
The Drexel University Dance Program kicked off its winter concert, “Surrounding Us,” Jan. 24 at the Mandell Theater, and it is safe to say that it was fierce, weird and heartwarming. The concert had 11 choreographed numbers. Eight of them were created by students, two were by faculty, and one was by local professional Leah [...]
When most people hear the word “opera,” they think “opera house.” Yet that mistake shouldn’t be made in Philadelphia, home of the Academy of Vocal Arts, the only tuition-free vocal school in the United States that regularly provides its students with opportunities to perform before a wider public. This inconspicuous little building located just off [...]
At the end of 2011, before ever releasing a mixtape, A$AP Rocky signed a $3 million record deal with RCA and Polo Grounds Music. Just weeks later, on Halloween, Rocky unleashed his impressive mixtape, “Live.Love.A$AP,” and instantly became one of the next rising stars in hip-hop. After touring off of that mixtape again to hype [...]
Standard Tap is a new breed of neighborhood tavern. It fulfills the basic standards — homey food, an unbelievably extensive selection of draft beers, the dull roar of happy patrons, and dim lighting. That being said, it is anything but basic. The foundational characteristics are certainly there, but Standard Tap then goes above and beyond. [...]
Drexel’s Concert Band held its fall performance Dec. 2 in Mandell Theater. The large and dynamic group, consisting of more than 70 students from almost every major, gave a performance just as varied as the band’s membership. Led by Wesley Broadnax, the ensemble covered a vast array of musical periods spanning over five centuries, including [...]
How much alcohol on average would you say that Americans drank every year in the 1830s? Do you think that you would be able to match them? Do you know why we have so many different mixed drinks today or why we have cruises? These questions can be answered by going to the National Constitution [...]
The University of Pennsylvania’s Arthur Ross Gallery held an exhibit titled “California Impressionism: Masters of Light” from Aug. 18 to Oct. 28. To celebrate the closing of the exhibit, a panel was held Oct. 27 and moderated by Lynn Marsden-Atlass, the university curator. The gallery featured more than 30 pieces, all from Californian impressionist painters. The [...]
Legendary music producer Ken Scott visited Drexel Oct. 23 to give a talk regarding his career and his new book, “Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust.” He walked out in front of a near-capacity Stein Auditorium in Nesbitt Hall full of music industry students, older, longtime fans and curious onlookers alike. Scott detailed his experiences working with the [...]
Doug Ellin, the creator of the renowned HBO series “Entourage,” visited Drexel Oct. 16 to discuss the show and provide insights as to how he got into the entertainment industry. The Bossone Research Center’s Mitchell Auditorium was filled to capacity with diehard fans and curious spectators who may have never seen a single episode. For [...]
Drexel’s Department of Performing Arts brought the program “What Makes A Masterpiece?” to Mandell Theater Oct. 4. The program featured a lecture from dance performer, critic and NYU professor Deborah Jowitt, followed by a performance of “The Farewell” by renowned performer and part-time Arcadia University professor Janet Pilla. Projected onto a giant screen was “The [...]
Summer may have come to an end, but there is much to look forward to in the fall, especially at Drexel. The new Market 16 & Noodle Bar opened up Sept. 24, providing us Dragons with yet another dining option. Stacked with all the essential groceries, fresh produce, and a noodle and sushi bar, this [...]
As the new school year begins, I thought a quick primer on beer would be appropriate. First, beer is simultaneously “just beer” and anything but. By this I mean that beer is just a drink, but like most things, it’s more complicated than it appears at first. Webster’s dictionary defines beer as “an alcoholic beverage [...]
Besides loads of homework, fall brings back everything good: new clothes, humidity-free hair days, beautiful leaves, and most importantly, the season premieres of all your favorite shows. Cult hit “Glee” returns with a brand-new season and cast members galore while “New Girl” takes over the primetime spotlight on Tuesdays this fall. Last season’s cliffhangers from [...]
The late Whitney Houston and American Idol alumna Jordin Sparks star in the musical film “Sparkle,” set to release Aug. 17. The film, also starring Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter, is a remake of the 1976 version. Director Salim Akil decided to move the original 1950s setting to the Motown scene of the 1960s. Ejogo [...]
In a city fast becoming recognizable for its array of restaurants with any number of options and substitutions for even the most celiac-prone lactose intolerant vegan, Fare does a spectacular job making adult-aged children like myself sit down and eat their vegetables with a smile and giving patrons a satisfying sense of actually being full [...]
I’m going to go out on a limb here and state an opinion that may be entirely too controversial for an upstanding publication like The Triangle to publish: I think that it has been really hot lately. And while it may just be me, I also find it rather unpleasant to be outside in the [...]
Disclaimer: I have a gigantic crush on both Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, which makes my take on “The Amazing Spider-Man” very subject to bias. I am admitting this up front, but you should trust and listen to me. I went to the Rave movie theater July 3 to see “The Amazing Spider-Man” at midnight [...]
