My Favorite Golden Bear Moment:

CalBears.com: What would you like to be doing in ten years?
Meghan Corso: "In 10 years I want to be living in Greenwich Village in New York City with a bulldog named Lola. I want to be working as the art director for NYLON magazine or own The Black Bear, which is a restaurant in Pottersville, N.Y. When I think of upstate new York, I think of my families lake house on Schroon lake and the black bear. It's the icon of Pottersville and one of my favorite places."
CalBears.com: Which three people would you invite to dinner?
MC: "I would invite Marc Jacobs, Gregory Corso and, of course Annie Leibovitz. Since it would be my dinner party, I would have to have a musical guest and it would be either Daft Punk or George Harrison. Corso is my third removed cousin one of the original members of the Beat Generation."
