Almost all of the businesses around Lewisburg, specifically ones that deliver or ones that are fast food, close at 11pm every night. Being from New York, the city that never sleeps, this is simply unacceptable. While I realize not every city, especially Lewisburg, will ever have paces open as late as New York does, I would expect a lot more places to be open near a college campus, specifically one in the middle of nowhere with nothing else to do but drink (sigh) and eat. This is especially surprising considering how often I spot drunk students in search of food. I would think, even for the late night workers they would hire, businesses could potentially increase their income a decent amount.
Even for places that are open when you want to eat, it would be even more awesome to have a list of places at your disposal to look at the menu of and order, all online. There are a lot of different websites that facilitate this, and businesses can easily upload their menu and take orders, all online. This has potential for a new found greatness on the Bucknell campus. One website is http://www.campusfood.com/ where we currently have ONE restaurant on it. The interface of this website is simple enough for both businesses and students and can have a strong impact on the local community and Bucknell campus if used and promoted properly.
- Sheetz should deliver.
- Chinese food should be open later.
- Fastfood in general should both deliver and be open later (I’ve seen it at NYU).
- I’m hungry late and so is everyone else.
