Please don’t shut down Blaster’s Brew and Marlene!
If you’ve ever walked through Brown building you’ve probably seen Marlene serving up some delicious coffee and taking care of her students at Blaster’s Brew. As of this week they will be shutting down Blaster’s Brew for the foreseeable future! Please don’t! Getting coffee from Marlene in Brown building is consistently the highlight of my and many students’ days. While we understand demand has decreased, Brown building is still one of the most used buildings on campus for senior design, homework study areas, and classes. Please consider keeping it open, Marlene and Blaster’s Brew together are a staple of the campus community!
Unfortunately, this closure along with others is simply due to the lack of business that Blaster's Brew and other on campus food venues are receiving. I have heard news that administration is planning on more on campus classes next semester, so hopefully this will lead to Blaster's Brew opening back up.
Thank you for your engagement. I will bring your question forward at USG senate tonight. I encourage yourself and all others interested to attend as well. The meeting is at 6:30pm and you can find the link on our website: https://usg.mines.edu/
