Late night opoto
draw the drunk
By DEAN LOWMAN

DTIl Staff Writers
It's one a.m.
You've been up half the night burning
the midnight oil and now you're craving
Hamburger, pizza, biscuits it doesn't
matter as long as you find something to
quench those awful hunger pains in your
But where can you go?
Chapel Hill, long known for its late
night social activities, has no less than 15
establishments open past the midnight
hour where you can purchase anything
from a grilled cheese sandwich to a pizza
all-the-way to satisfy your palate.
Three businesses, The Looking Glass,
Hardee's and Biscuit Towne, USA, are
open 24 hours a day.
Biscuit Towne, USA, 106 Mallette St.,
serves 30 different varietiesof biscuits,
chicken, burgers and barbequed beef
ribs. Night Manager Mike Collins, a
former UNC student, said the manage
ment recognized a "need for a place in
Chapel Hill that served quality food in a
clean atmosphere without making the
customer wait all night."
Collins said Biscuit Towne, USA, was
planning to improve the lighting in its
parking lot and is awaiting the arrival of a
lighted road sign. The establishment is
located in the building formerly occupied
by Roy Roger's Family Restaurant.
Hardee's, located on Franklin St., is
still experimenting with its late-night
menu, according to Area Manager Frank
Turner. "We haven't decided whether to
go with our biscuit menu or burger line,"
While it remains to be seen whether the
move to 24 hour service will be profitable,
Turner said he thought Hardee's had to
take a chance on the idea.
"I think our drawing card will be our
name because people generally have a pre
conceived idea about where they want to
eat. They're familiar with places like
Hardee's and other chains and will stop by
here, before considering another place
that's not quite as familiar to them,"
Chapel Hill's other nonstop eating es
tablishment, The Looking Glass Cafe, is
located in University Square. It features
deli sandwiches and soups.
Other area munchie helpers include es
tablishments that are open until around 2
aim. and some even deliver for the stu
dent who cannot manage to make it out.
Jill Lederer, manager of Dominos pizza
delivery said she had received some
unusual orders during the late evening.
The later it is at night, the more interesting
combinations students request.
"The late night rush is a lot different
rJtt OKAY, DA73l ;
than the 'dinner rush," Lederer said.
"For dinner most people order pizza with
more nutritional ingredients."
Late night pizzas usually have a lot of
extra cheeses and crazy combinations.
The vegie pizza, which only has
vegetarian ingredients is very popular, she
"Even though we're only open until 1
or 2 . a.m. we try and stay with the
demands of the students, so we may be.
delivering pizzas until 2:30 or 3 a.m. We
get a Tot of people partying."
Russell Johnson, assistant manager for
PTA said a lot of times the customers had
"obviously been partying all night."
Sometimes they even ask for different in
gredients on each slice.
Steve Scher, who works at Hector's,
said he had some interesting stories about
late night eaters! Once a guy came in and
ordered a Greek grilled cheese sandwich.
One of the people behind the counter
made a bet with him to see if he could
finish five more. And he did.
Most of the people are drunk when
they come in, Scher said, and just about
any combination looks good to them.
Not only students but alumni get the
late night munchies. At 1 a.m., Glenn
Turtle who graduated in 1979 and Rich
, Keller who will be graduating in September
decided to walk into Hardee's and get a
bite to eat.
Turtle and Keller said that a few times
on their night raids of restaurants and
other hangouts they might order some
thing and then decide that they weren't
"But we never decided not to finish
what we had ordered," Keller said.

cooliing cure thoe Pine loom Blues
By KEITH KING
Got the Pine Room Blues? .
Many students will have them soon. The immediate cure is a
trip to Franklin Street, but the pocketbook soon begins to suffer.
The only real, lasting cure is home cooking. Cooking is that
ancient art whose rites were passed only from mother to
daughter and from which only a few men in France managed to
steal the secrets.
Complexity; time and costs scare off many would-be cooks.
The chance of failure also inhibits student cooks. But cooking
can be a reasonable alternative to eating out for the dorm rat
and apartment dweller alike. The key to success is simplicity, says
a local cooking instructor. "If they (students) concentrate on
cooking foods simply rather than inaking fancy sauces and deep
frying everything they should have good results," said Alicia
Berry, director of the cooking school at The Kitchen Store at
University Mall and North Hills (Raleigh).
Berry, who got her early cooking experience fixing meals for
her large family and has been teaching cooking for the last four
years, said there was no reason for college students to be afraid
of trying to cook for themselves. .
"We get a whole lot of college students (in our cooking
classes),'.' she said. "We get a real mix of townspeople and Uni
versity students and they react well with each other."
Berry said men should not be hesitant about cooking either.
"Cooking isn't just for women. Everybody has to eat," she
said,. "We make a point of not singling men out in the classes in
any chauvinistic way and we get a lot of good response."
Berry said male enrollment in cooking classes was steadily in
creasing. In addition to the regular classes, she also teaches sur
vival cooking for men.
Classes are usually on Wednesday or Thursday nights arid
cost about $10-
"We teach everything basics of breadmaking, pastries,
sauces and ethnic courses," she said. "The best part is you get
to eat after class."
There are also free demonstrations on Saturdays from noon to
1 p.m. that feature various kitchen devices like food processors.
To get the beginner started, Berry suggested either of two cook
books. The Joy of Cooking (The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc.,
$14.95, $6.95 for paperback) is encyclopedic. "It contains be
tween two covers every simple cooking technique you would want
to use, explained in full," she said.
"For the slightly more adventurous, there's The New York
Times Cookbook (Harper and Row, $15.95)," she said. "A lot
of people now are trying vegetarian cooking," she said. For
vegetarians, she suggested The New York Times The Natural
"Also, there's The Vegetarian Epicure. Nothing ever turns
out bad from this. It's perfect right down the line," Berry said.
For those wanting meat, Berry said chicken was one of the
easiest to bake. She said baking and broiling meats would pro
bably be easier for the beginner. For vegetables she said steam
ing was best. "The flavor is good and it cooks the food better
that the way some Southern cooks boil everything forever."
To cut cooking costs, Berry said shopping sales and sharing
were the best ways.
"I know when you're going to school it's hard to pay atten
tion to food sales, but that's the best way (to cut costs),'' she said.
"If you're living with other people, find out what they like
and share the costs. Or make a lot of something and put it in a
freezer if you can get one. That can be pretty expensive, though."
Along with recipe ideas and food, the beginning cook needs
some basic kitchen equipment. Berry suggested the following list:
a two-cup Pyrex measuring cup, measuring spoons, three mixing
bowls in graduated sizes, several spoons, a spatula, 1 Vi- arid
2Vi -quart pans, a nine- or ten-inch frying pan, a collander, a
cookie sheet, a tea kettle and a six-inch utility knife.
Berry said the spoons should be made of wood or plastic so
they would not scratch the bottoms of the pots or impart flavor
to the foods.
For pots and frying pans, she suggested they be made of heavy
duty treated aluminum or stainless steel. The heavy construction
makes the pots durable, a must for the transient college student.
Also, the material does not react with the food to affect the flavor.
Berry said she did not recommend Teflon coated pans. -"The
plastic coating eventually comes off in the food and
-who wants a plastic omelet?" . .
