Calling all attractive skinny people: DZine2Show and The Walk model auditions are this weekend. The design club and fashion magazine are looking for fresh faces and bods to show off their fashion pieces (not clothes…fashion pieces). Walk your walk and do your pose thang on Friday, Oct 1st 3-5pm in JMHH 90 and Sunday, Oct 3rd 3-5pm in JMHH 255.
Somebody tell the Independent State Store Union to lay off our shiny new wine machines.
The Harrisburg-based union of state liquor store managers took to the Centre Daily Times to bitch about how the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is The Man and FroGro’s upcoming kiosks “underscore the hypocrisy of the PLCB’s underage drinking prevention program.”
Sounds like someone’s jealous that wine machines are so awesome. I’m sure that if the ISSU had the opportunity to install them, they’d be all over that too. Unless they’re too busy protesting Sunday liquor sales or fighting PLCB in court all the time.
Check out their grievances (and why they’re nonsense) after the jump.
Blah blah blah, rankings. The Wall Street Journal has a ranking of Executive MBA programs, often geared to businesspeople looking to change careers, in which the Wharton program is ranked #1. Read the rest of this entry »
Here at Street, we happen to think that ‘f‘ is a particularly noble letter. Just think, without ‘f,’ no for! Or food! Or fondle. And definitely no “Fuck You” by CeeLo. And poor Phillies General Counsel Richard Strouse, who we’ve profiled for this week’s cover story — phraud? phranchise? Phreedom? This is hardly legal terminology.
Fun aside, today’s Street is a bona fide picker upper. The doormen of Smoke’s are a collective Ego of the Week, Food & Drink has a guide to becoming a beer connoisseur, and Music proffers it’s fantasy American Idol judge dream teams. Film interviews The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin and Jesse Eisenberg and Arts gives you a sneak peak of this month’s First Friday. Plus plenty of stuff the stupid and scandalous amongst us say and do.
As always, the Street staff will be convening at 6:30 p.m. this evening at the Street offices (4015 Walnut, up the stairs and all the way in the back) for our weekly Writers’ Meeting. Come hang! Come write! Come contribute!
See after the jump for this weeks content that it online online! As in not in the print magazine!
When we heard SPEC Special Events had a shindig coming up, we were like, there is no way we can pretend to be excited for some Mediocre Free Food With A Theme day. Fall Fest was cool and all, but we really can’t handle another Wynnter Funderland, you know?
But this Friday actually sounds really legit: they’re offering FREE vans to Old City’s First Friday art gallery stroll, an event Penn kids flock to already. Vans leave at 7 p.m. from 34th and Walnut; you can sign up on the Google Doc here.
Oh, and there’s free cider and donuts at the Compass on Friday from 10-2. Guess old habits die hard.
For those of you who haven’t noticed, Harnwell is basically blending it with the night sky at the moment. Tipsters are bed buggin’ out because for those who don’t keep track (i.e. most people), tonight is almost three weeks until the one year anniversary of Harnwell’s last epic blackout.
Celebrating Fling a little early, are we? Someone get this building under control ASAP, before it’s too late.
Update: 11:28 pm. Power’s back on. Phew. Also, it’s Gaylord (yes, Gaylord) Harnwell’s 107th birthday. Perhaps his ghost came back to celebrate.
These white-clad gentlemen were spotted in front of Houston today. In fact, there seems to have been an explosion of seamen throughout Penn’s campus lately. But where did they come from? And though the picture quality is poor, we can tell that these men in uniform are a bunch of hotties. Someone break us off a piece of that.
Freshman elections seem to be getting pretty nasty. We found the word “Asshole” written across poor IniGO’s forehead today during a stroll down Locust Walk. Looks like somebody doesn’t think so highly of this Presidential Candidate of Freshman Superlative fame.
