Oberlin’s new restaurant ThiNi Thai grabs the attention of passersby with its bright lights and painted mural. Above the front door, there is a large, arrow-shaped sign that reads, “ThiNi,” a Thai phrase that translates to “is here,” according to co-owner Matt Adelman. Brothers Matt and Jason Adelman, owners of the Feve, opened the restaurant at the beginning of January. They were inspired by a trip they took to Chiang Mai, a city in the mountainous northern region of Thailand, where they met their tour guide and friend Aon Krittathiranon. After noticing the brothers’ interest in food, Krittathiranon invited them to his house to show them how he cooked Thai dishes. The Adelmans later found out that Krit...

Patrons enjoy Nepali food on the first floor of the Feve as part of a fundraiser led by Students United for Nepal. Participants enjoyed Nepali music and meals Tuesday from 9–11 p.m. in an effort to raise money to build classrooms in Nepal. A portion of each guest’s bill was donated to Nepal’s first free private school, Maya Universe Academy. The event comes in response to a visit home to Nepal by Oberlin Shansi fellow and College sophomore Bikalpa Baniya, who volunteered at Shighadevi Secondary School located in the rural Sindhupalchowk District after the devastating 2015 earthquake that killed 8,000 people. After bearing witness to the immense destruction, Baniya hoped to raise awareness of difficulties faced by Nepa...
