Two popular choices seem to be pizza and Chinese food. Also consider vegetarian food.
Lucky kitchen is tasty, and they deliver fast, since they are right there in North Campus Plaza. Their number is 747-9968. Some things to remember when ordering Chinese food are:
- Ask to see what dishes come with rice. I ordered extra rice, and we ended up with way too much.
- Order a variety of dishes. Make sure you include:
- Some vegetarian dishes
- Some not-pork dishes
- Some spicy dishes and some not-spicy dishes
- Tell them to drop off the food in the G.G. Brown parking lot. That seems to be a common destination for delivery places.
- If it is a large order, order it the day before. Then call them that day and remind them.
- Make sure they take a check.
- Ask if they provide eating utensils. If they do not, make sure that there are some in 3220 EECS.
- Count on one small order per person, or one large order per two people. Order a little too much since everyone likes Chinese takeout leftovers and some people may be particularly hungry.
- Make sure to provide beverages and ice, if the beverages are supposed to be cold.
- Ask if rice comes with any of the dishes. Once I ordered rice, which they added to the rice which already came with the food I ordered. It was a bit too much rice.
This is a good thing to do yourself, because then you get to pick all of your favorite dishes.
Marco's Pizza does not deliver for lunch on Mondays. I like Cottage Inn, the one down on Maiden Lane and Broadway delivers to North Campus. Once again, tell them to deliver to G.G. Brown. They will know where to come and meet you in the parking lot.
Call in advance and tell them that you are ordering a bunch of pizzas for a group. They will give you a good price. Make sure that they take a check. Remember to order some vegetarian pizzas, too. It seems that plain pizzas and mushroom pizzas go over with the omniverous masses better than those pizzas with many, many different kinds of vegetables one them.
For a general meeting, order 10-15 large pizzas. For an officers meeting, figure one pizza for every three or four people. Heck, for an officers meeting, you could even take specific orders, if you were feeling ambitious.
