cover04242014We’ve waited through wind and snow and more wind and more snow, but they have arrived. Shoutouts! are here and whoa do you guys have some weird stuff going on. We love it, mostly.

Our final feature before the summer tackles on campus dialogue around the Israeli-Palestinian relationship. We know you’ll have an opinion and we can’t wait to hear it.

As we brace ourselves for finals, we have some awesome study breaks planned: snack breaks involving summer fruit and fancy cocktails, netflix breaks all about college tv shows, deep thoughts on doodling and some fresh tunes. We even took the time to reflect on our most controversial feature: the Round Up

The end of the year and our final issue means goodbyes and we will miss so many seniors, especially our former EIC. Nina, you da best.

Have a fabulous weekend full of formals, Penn Relays and some work too.

You know you love us, Street

04.17issueThis time of year is about being the best. Best in your class, best formal date, best internship, best first warm day outfit. At Street, we always look for the best…so we can share it with you.

This week, we are proud to present this year’s Best of Penn, from the best wax (useful) to the best place to get down, the best use for bursar (it may surprise you) and many more. Share the best part of your day with us on instagram using #bestofpenn and help us make the last few weeks the best they can be.

Do you want more?

Duh, you’re the best of the best. Food and Drink has the best things to eat in Philadelphia, Arts has the best artsy dates for you and your boo. Backpage has  alumni superlatives. Film has the best Penn shoutouts from the small screen. As you craft your finals playlist, check out best and worst lyrics. Ego has an Ego with a lot to say. You’ll want to read this. They also have the worst of Penn, because it’s not all roses. Find your new favorite holiday as Lowbrow combines Passover, Easter and 4/20. The best Round Up always comes after fling.

Come to our final writer’s meeting of the year. It may be the best yet. 6:30 pm @ 4015 Walnut.

410coverWe’ll make this quick because we know you’re a) already flinging b) in class staring at the clock or c) on your way to New Jersey (stay safe!).

This week we’re all about fling, from gossip and logos of fling’s past to some serious thoughts on its present. Of course, we wanted to get your thoughts and have them all in our survey feature. You guys do some crazy shit and we absolutely love it. Thank you for the haikus.

Are you disappointed about Guetta? Lowbrow has some other ideas. Are you freaking out about your high school friend visiting and how you’re going to party for three days straight? Enter Ego, with friendly reminders to eat and stay hydrated. There are drunchies to be had and cocktails to mix. Come Sunday, you’ll find us curled up in the fetal position watching tv. We have options.

Have an amazing fling and get it started at 6:30 p.m. Our writers meeting is at 4015 Walnut and we’re pumped as ever, LCE be damned.

STREET Presents: Not Enough

Street 04 03 2014This week, we have money on our minds and it’s taken over every section of our (free) magazine. Our feature gets at the real cost of attending Penn, far higher than tuition. Speaking of tuition, lowbrow broke down one dollar of your tuition and it’s not pretty. Before you blow your work study this weekend, Ego has money saving ways to hit the town and Food and Drink has a pretty sweet Philly food day for only $34.

Ever wonder just how much musicians exaggerate their incomes? We found out. How do movies portray money? Ever wonder how much other ivies cost? Check it out on the backpage. Should museums cost money to enter?

This issue is meant to be a conversation starter and we urge you to start talking about the elephant on this campus: how much we spend, save and ignore the enormous role money plays in our lives.

We’d love to hear your thoughts tonight at our Writers’ Meeting, 6.30 p.m. at 4015 Walnut Street.

P.S. Want advice on how to look like a million bucks? Peek at yesterday’s fashion issue for some inspiration.

Street Presents: Street Style

Street StyleOh hey didn’t see you there, guess what Street just did? We made a fashion issue.

Our hump day treat for you is a issue packed with relevant and stylish content. We’ll help you dress well on a budget, remind you that black is the new black, and find the best outfits at Piper Boutique or at one of Philadelphia’s best vintage stores.

See a style retrospective of our dear Amy Gutmann’s fashion decisions and get fashion tips for this long awaited season we call spring from your stylish peers. Are they sceney? You bet.

Celebrate our first fashion issue tonight from 5-9 at Piper Boutique. All merchandise is 10% off and there will be a DJ and some live mannequins (aka models). Come hang with us to discuss clothes (or fling tanks and Penn apparel), chest hair, the How I Met Your Mother finale and the coolest glasses to rock in your recitation.

STREET Presents: Fiction Contest Winners

Cover0327We’re back with the winners of our fiction contest. Read about an unconventional couple’s journey around Ikea and show some love to our poetry winner and a runner up. We even have an online exclusive: our most experimental submission.

Get ready for the final months of the semester with some perspective on your freshmen hall. Get your weekly dose of judgement as Highbrow raises a brow. Get off campus with yoga at the PMA (we bet Rocky can’t downward dog). Catch a concert at one of Philly’s coolest venues.

We know How I Met Your Mother’s ending is an emotional time for everyone, so seek solace in new foods. Durian’s a challenge for the tastebuds, but you may love it. If laughter is the best medicine, you’ll be chuckling at Lowbrow’s AMA with Dean Furda. He’s really excited about the class of 2018.

Weigh in on the Best of Penn in our annual survey. Opinions encouraged.

As always, we’ll be looking for writers, friends and photographers tonight at our writers’ meeting. Join the party 6:30 p.m at 4015 Walnut.

STREET PRESENTS: Me & Them & Ze & Us

03 20 15Welcome back to school and welcome to the last day of winter! We can’t believe it either but miracles never cease.

This week, we met some of the brave members of Penn’s trans community. Ego got an spoken word performance from Ego of the Week Seth Simons and Arts has an exclusive with the anonymous creator of Humans of UPenn.

Now that we’re back from Spring Break, it’s time for some gossip. We cannot believe what you were all up to (and we read your text messages). Clean up your acts with a post vacation detox and hear all about your favorite person’s Eurotrip (ugh). Upgrade your playlist with some seriously underhyped songs and take advantage of throwback thursday to remember the Oscars. Finally, we know what’s at stake here: there are 55 days left in the semester. We’ll get you through it.

Celebrate the advent of spring and the chance to join Street at our writer’s meeting, tonight at 6:30 PM @ 4015 Walnut.

STREET Presents: Eat. Pray. Love

ocp coverMidterms aside, it’s your lucky week because there’s a double dose of Street.

This week, we spent some time with the Orthodox Community at Penn. L’Chaim! On the backpage, hear Penn students of all faiths get real about what they believe.

We are all so over winter but are you the most over it? Play a game of Ego’s Winter Bullshit Bingo. We’re hoping it warms up soon for a walk downtown to sample Chinatown’s best bites and check out Philadelphia’s coolest street art.

On the silly side, Highbrow got a Tinder, would you swipe right? PennAlert: Backpage spoofs the DPS. Music has no shame about loving some nonsensical songs and we’ve got Oscar picks straight from Ben Franklin and Amy Gutmann (*we wish*). Watch the Oscars with us this Sunday, we’ll be live blogging.

Don’t forget to plan your weekend meals with the help of our Spring 2014 Dining Guide.

STREET Presents: Spring Dining Guide

Dining Guide 2014It’s mealtime in Philadelphia and Street is here with macarons and nachos and so much more. Our Spring Dining Guide has suggestions for incredible eats near and far. Try hot fried chicken at a restaurant with a porcine name (and read our interview with owner and Top Chef Kevin Sbraga) and see what Drexel has to offer you in the realm of mac n cheese and quesadillas. Our own campus now boasts excellent pizza, and on certain weekend days, bagels. Explore South Philly for a high quality Italian byo and a creative vegan one. Walk around Rittenhouse, croissant in hand or grab an elegant picnic in Washington Square or a pickle and a drink at Gaslight. Northern Liberties is changing the Tater tots game and Jose Garces gave Philly a Cuban Diner. For fine dining, consider Avance and read our exclusive interview with Chef Justin Bogle.  Or try High Street on Market, a more casual restaurant from the Chef of Fork. Any way you slice it, Spring 2014 is a wonderful time to dive into Philadelphia’s thriving food scene. Where are you going to start?

P.S. Need BYO, food truck, cheap eats, Italian, Asian, or nearby food suggestions? We’ve got your back!

STREET PRESENTS: Agree to Disagree?

cover0220It’s above 40 degrees and Street is back, finally wearing only one layer.

Read our feature about professors and their biases, and while you’re at it, play College Hall Tinder. Lowbrow took on Arts this week and Music took on the Top 40, as usual. Make a playlist and take a walk west to explore some new grocery stores or just binge watch the Real Housewives.

Back on campus, we know everyone is talking about our legendary commencement speaker, but how does he stack up against VPs and FLOTUSes past? Meet your Senior Class President before you head off to FebClub. Lastly, read this week’s Word on the Street about a very important experience someone had at Penn.
