Way before when you decided to be a Consumer Psych minor because you could, like, totally put Wharton on your resume, you had never set foot in Huntsman. Now there’s one more reason to stay far, far away: JMHH staff will take your stuff if you leave it unattended in the study lounge. Watch out! We’d love to say we’ll go back to VP, but a tipster tells us that Mark’s Café is shut down due to a cockroach infestation. Stay tuned for details.
Hey Day has come and gone, so seniors are not really seniors anymore, but also they’re like not really graduates yet, which is kinda weird. Anyway, if any Class of ’15 people already feel nostalgic for their three years past, check out this time lapse, and see if you can spot all 600+ people who liked their Class Board President’s prof pic.
Happy Bday, Metro! -- In celebration of Metro Bakery's 10th anniversary at its Walnut location, we get sweet deals all week. Tomorrow: A whopping fiddy cents off coffee. Friday: 50 cents off espresso/chai/Starbucks-y drinks. Saturday: $5 gift certificates to every 10th customer. Sunday: FREE coffee! Joe my God!
Ahh, the sweet smells of Spring and sobriety.
This week has a ton of events that will serve as the perfect cure to your hangovers and matzah-induced stomach-aches.
Ongoing: Spring Green Week: Blind taste tests of organic food, clothing swaps in the Quad, and Quizzo — all with an environmental twist.

Lying In Bed?
-- So are we! Before you wake up for your 10:30am, remember to VOTE
for today's Best of Penn.
Today's Flash Poll is all about which restaurant reigns supreme when it comes to ordering in. Our personal favorite (while lying in bed): the pizza delivery guy.
We’ve got Grubhub for food, Netflix for movies, Amazon Prime for textbooks, and pledges for class notes.
Introducing…Instacart for alcohol (ALCOHOL)!
Now, we know what you’re thinking: 43rd and Chestnut isn’t thaat far away. But Instacart promises same-day delivery to your doorstep for the price of a cab back from your liquor run ($4ish).
Our suggestion: While we haven’t tested out the program yet, we recommend trying the 14-day Free Trial of Instacart Express (booze delivered in 1hr) or open an account and get ~free~ delivery on your first order.
Checking emails? We’re with ya. Like, we get it. You really need to swipe down and refresh your Mail app mid-date Night, mid-lecture, mid-sex – all the time – because you’re so important and get, like, hundreds of emails per hour. Fine.
But when it comes to responding to emails? How about a little tact? We’re talking to you, trigger-happy frosh, who shamelessly threw anonymity and Googleability right out the window last night.
In case you’re not on the College House First Year Residents listserv (a happening place), or if you don’t happen to be in possession of a First Year Resident’s email login info (because that’d be illegal), you probably missed waking up this morning to 72 unread pieces of listserv spam.
It started innocently enough with a call for nominations for the 2014 College House Deans Integrated Knowledge Award, granted to the select few residents whose “activities and participation have directly benefitted their own College House.” We’re talking the kid who tried to make weekly hall lunches a thing. The only barriers to winning? You need two references in support of your candidacy. And that’s when all hell broke loose. Click to see the damage!
Our three newest goals in life: (1) take a selfie with Ellen, (2) have a snow day, and (3) take a selfie with Ellen on a snow day.
