You Know You’re From Princeton…
By: Katie DeVito (Follow me on Twitter @kdevito)
Recently we polled our Twitter and Facebook friends on the following question…
“You know you’re from Princeton…”
Here’s What We Got:
…when you know the better, less trafficked Thomas Sweets is in Palmer Square.
…if you ever carved your name in a table at PJ’s Pancake House.
…if you’re a regular at the Princeton Record Exchange!
…if you’ve dumped your cd collection at the Princeton Record Exchange to get extra scratch.
…if you know Dick Swain.
…if you know which store houses the “Albert Einstein Museum”.
…when you almost ran over Cornel West because he likes to jaywalk. Stick to the crosswalks Cornel!
…if you remember The Annex.
…if you know what the Dinky is.
…when you shop at Merrick’s for a big event.
…when you show up at a dinner party with cupcakes from Bent Spoon as a hostess gift.
…if you’ve skateboarded in the parking garage by the old Gap store.
…if you park for free on PU campus on nights & weekends.
…when your pizza delivery guy shows up in a BMW!
…if you are on a first name basis with Chris at Lahieres.
…when it takes a Trader Joe’s to get you to cross Route 1.
…because you know how to eat in your car when there’s no parking in town.
…if you’ve watched a number of movies be filmed in Princeton (Beautiful Mind, IQ, Transformers 2).
…if you know what “spices” are at Hoagie Haven.
…if you have a “default” favorite at Hoagie Haven.
…if you’ve eaten a cheesesteak from Hoagie Haven at the “fountain”.
…if you’ve broken into Princeton classrooms to eat your Hoagie Haven.
(*Princeton Scoop does not support breaking and entering)
…when you take a bag of Small World Coffee with you on vacations.
…when your little league victory party ends up at pizza star and dairy queen.
…because you follow Princeton Scoop on Twitter @princetonscoop and Facebook for everything Princeton.
