This week’s Flyer Of The Week has us feeling all nostalgic, thanks to Stimulus Children’s Theater’s production of “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.” With finals coming up, we’re all feeling a little like Charlie Brown. CB understands the struggle and was always there with optimistic (?) nuggets of wisdom. Our “New Philosophy” is that this show is going to be adorable. It’s tonight and tomorrow in the Class of ’49 Auditorium with all of your favorites from the Peanuts Gang! Break a leg, Stim!
We don’t really get
The title of your show but
Can’t go wrong with swing!
Dark pop band of dudes
SPEC is redeeming itself
Concert on Friday
Sondheim is a boss
Watch ‘em try to shoot the prez
Break a leg, Players!
If you haven’t been on the Locust Bridge lately that means a) you’ve been avoiding the questionable eatings at Nommons and b) you’re unaware that the United Minorities Council has pimped out our campus! UMC beautified Penn a little more in celebration of Unity Month, with multicolored bows to represent the interculturalism of different groups on campus. Hey, we’re a fan of anything that we can pretend to look at while avoiding eye contact with people on Locust. Yay diversity!
Why would you want to start a club or do world-changing research you can really make your mark at Penn by creating your class cheer? Luckily, Penn Traditions has answered this question that absolutely no one has asked!
If you missed the pre-frosh boat and haven’t become famous on your class Facebook page yet, this is your chance. Your words could become the anthem of your class and your face could be known by generations of Quakers to come.
We can see the heartfelt submissions now:
“Passed out in the Quad at fling, no one parties like ’16!”
“Our spirit rings through campus halls, ’17 has got some balls!”
We volunteer! We volunteer as tribute!! This website is hosting a contest for one school to win an advanced screening of Catching Fire and as of now, Penn *was* in first place. We’re now being killed by bigger schools. VOTE AHORA! And in the words of Penn alum Elizabeth Banks…
Once in a million years (?) the two most exciting Penn football games come together to form a college sporting event so epic, so goddamn exhilarating that students (gasp!) actually attend the game. Yes Quakers, the Penn v. Princeton game and Homecoming are uniting as one!
To honor this event, let’s Puck our friends at Frinceton. Support the DP, The Buzz, and the Quakers’ quest to destroy the Tigers with these friendly, sportsman-like shirts (NOW IN LONG SLEEVE!!!). You can order now at www.theDP.com/tshirt until October 27th.
Now there’s seeyouinisrael.com, a dating website exclusively for single Jews who wish to make the move to the holy land. This article promoting the site makes sure to name-drop the crème de la crème of Jewish singles, the “University of Pennsylvania’s Hillel Gradnetwork.” You never know, the guy who helped you decorate the sukkah made of solo cups could be *the one*.
Classes are ending, finals are beginning. Summer is within reach! You’re trying to squeeze in lunch with every person you always say you simply muuuust catch up with before it is too late. Here are some things to do in between:
Brittany Snow At Penn
Who? CogWell, Penn’s student health awareness group
Where and When? Today at 6pm in Huntsman Hall Room F85
Why? She’ll be sharing her personal battles with eating disorders and bullying as part of the Love Is Louder campaign. And she’ll be doing a Q&A so you can totally get the deets on what really went on behind-the-scenes of Pitch Perfect. Aca-mazing!
Opening Celebration of “Karla Black” and “Each One As She May”
Who? Institute of Contemporary Art
Where and When? Wednesday 6-9pm in ICA (corner of 36th and Sansom)
Why? Take a study break! Get a little culture and feast your eyes on some beautiful artwork before you trudge back to the bleak shelves of VP. Read the rest of this entry »
Countdown: four days! Or two, if you’re planning on going hard starting Wednesday. Or zero, if you do that every day anyway. Jazz & Grooves released a promo for their Saturday In The Quad concert, featuring Delorean, Gigamesh (not the ancient play you read in 9th grade – that’s GiLgamesh), Autre Ne Veut and more. Come on, look at how much fun your fellow Quakers are having in this video! Makes us want to dance! Sure to be a good time.
Remember, buy your Fling guest passes (here) before they sell out! Secure your cheap sunglasses and fanny packs. It’s even warm! (Today at least.) Get those last minute Fling puns (The Flung and the Restless?!?!) printed on your tanks. Seek out a nice patch of grass where you know you can pass out if you need to.
Lots of shows this weekend! Possibly because everyone wants to squeeze their events in before the fling pandemonium starts. Here’s our weekly guide to what you’re missing when you
shove politely ignore the kid thrusting a flyer in your face:
Breaking the silence
Protesting on College Green
Speak out with candles
Come hear some smooth jazz
And apparently the Pope?
Didn’t know he played!
