Ladies and Gentlemen, Pop Your Collars

It's Foxfield.  It's...the sunniest?  Drunkest?  Certainly the most fun, but let's be real here--it's the preppiest day in all of UVa.  So you have to pop your (pastel) collar!  But do you have to pop nine of them?  At once?
Seriously, Chaz*, please explain yourself.  

Apparently Chaz here heard about Foxfield's preppy prerequisite and showed up last year with four shirts to achieve serious collar poppage.  But he was hot--and I don't mean sexy.  This year, he wanted to up his game AND be cool, so he did a little research.  What we see here is Chaz sporting two shirts, and seven dickies.  

Next year, you may ask?  Chaz is plotting out all the little figurines he'd like to embroider on his seersucker, patchwork shorts.  Keep an eye out for 'that guy'...!

*Chaz is a conveniently preppy nickname designed to prevent Carlton's students from knowing it was really him.

20th between 
7th & 8th
6 o'clock

So many muffins, so hard to choose! I finally order a zucchini muffin to compliment my brewed-just-for-me, Peruvian blend coffee. 

Mix the milk & sugar, find a seat, and then I'm ready to bust in to vegetable-turned-bread goodness. WHY ARE THERE BIG, BROWN CHUNKS IN MY MUFFIN?  What part of a zucchini is red??  Cafe Grumpy, please explain yourself.

Turns out, there were fewer choices than I thought.  That sign reading, "Zucchini Cranberry Chocolate Chips" describes just ONE muffin! Then, as if the amazing coffee weren't enough, this over-achieving, brown, red, and green speckled muffin was spectacular!

Warning: this explanation likely won't be entirely satisfying until you get to Grumpy yourself.
