`09 alum Meredith Fineman is on the quest for Jewish love, as proven through her new blog Fifty First (J) Dates. The catch? She’s using the Jewish internet-user’s answer to match.com, J-Date, where single Jews can come one step closer to stomping on a wine glass in front of a crowd of people. Maybe she’ll even find a nice doctah.
Yo, the weather is seriously whack in Philly. Earlier, we received a heat advisory email from Facilities Services, and the next thing we know we’ve got hurricane-force winds blowing stuff down everywhere. If the rumors are true, pieces of DRL’s roof have flown off and live squirrels were being tossed around. If you have pictures to confirm that (or more tornado tales) send us what you’ve got!
For those of you who watch MTV (or appear on it, whatevs), you may have spotted Mask and Wig’s own Jonah Meyerson, who appears in a new Above the Influence commercial. It’s super-legit, especially because it comes on every five seconds.
We must admit that Jonah is pretty dreamy in it, and we’re a little jealous of the girl who plays his love interest. But then again, not everyone can be a WigWAG. Or, for that matter, a college-age male dressed in women’s clothing.
For the first time this summer, we’re bringing you two pages of Street!
Take a look at our reviews of the latest albums from everyone’s favorite white rapper and a club composed of neither Japanese people nor law enforcement officers. Then, peruse our film criticism, which examines the summer’s biggest CGI tear-jearker and the latest sleeper hit foreign flick.
And, as you’ve come to expect, we’ve got your weekend schedule on lock.
We hear that Bubble House at 3404 Sansom has closed and is undergoing renovations. The tea bar at the front is still operating for the time being, but will shut down on June 30. No word yet on what’s going in, but check back for updates.
This ad, taken from the DP‘s homepage, left us speechless. All this hard work (if wearing “Not Penn State” t-shirts can be called hard work) for nothing! Either this is some kind of horrible Google Ads mistake, or the DP is slowly transforming into the official newspaper of the West Philadelphia branch of Penn State.
Every time we get a new episode of listserv abuse, we think to ourselves that this will surely be the last one. By now people must have figured out how to use their emails, right? We’re then, of course, totally secretly thrilled when we hear listserv drama is still alive and well.
It is our honor to present the latest in internet lameness: the Wharton Investment Club Unsubscribe Crisis of 2010. If you’re in a time crunch, just scroll straight to the ultimate take-home: “For crying out loud, stop using AOL. You’re embarrassing yourself.” Read the rest of this entry »
The days are still getting longer, and the official First Day of Summer is just a couple days away! Whatever pagan solstice parties you have planned for this weekend, there’s hardly a better place to get started on your flower crowns than Clark Park‘s annual Arts & Music Festival this Saturday.
The Festival will celebrate the longest day of the year as well as Clark Park’s 40th anniversary with over 40 local artisans selling their wares, 10 local bands and even a couple dance and theater acts. There will be plenty of food and plenty of merriment to be had, carrying on from noon until sundown–which, of course, is the latest it will be all year.
