The early bird gets the worm! Or in this case, rather than a worm, Elizabeth Rogers (C '22) will be getting some Golden Beets and a Syrian Lamb Kabob. 

That's right - the incoming freshman has taken over the Philly food scene before even stepping on Penn's campus, in the form of some valuable reservations at Philadelphia's finest modern Israeli restaurant - Zahav. Over the past weeks, Rogers has been scouring OpenTable, Craigslist, and even the Dark Web to secure these lucrative reservations.

"It's just so important to understand the culture of the city," remarked Rogers. "Also my parents are absolutely loaded and Zahav tastes sooooo much better than Chipotle, right?" 

Rogers, the self-proclaimed "foodie," has already made plans with members of the Class of 2022 Facebook page for her Zahav reservations, and has also secured reservations for different restaurants across Philadelphia for every night that Restaurant Week will be taking place.

Despite all the wonderful reservations she has lined up, we suspect it will only take her a month or two to begin eating Halal 5 times per week, just like the rest of her peers.
