It’s that time of year again, the DP’s Bracket Challenge is back. If you submit your bracket by this Thursday at noon, you could win prizes to Copa ($100 for 1st, $50 for 2nd, and $30 for 3rd).
Also, be sure to bring in a printed copy of the bracket from the DP into Copa for $5 nachos. Even if you’re not a huge fan of NCAAB, you’ve got nothing to lose, and even if you don’t win, you’ll definitely be happier than this guy.
Freshmen, West Philadelphians, and other denizens of Copa, take note: some major changes are underfoot at the beloved mid-week spot.
The process of getting in has done a 180. An eyewitness attendee of this week’s Copa Wednesday states that he had to photocopy his ID and sign an affadavit (law school kids feel free to explain this one) saying something akin to what our source calls “signing my life away to the Philadlephia law enforcement.”
It appears this will continue every day until January, thanks to a fight a few weeks ago that broke out between some underage St. Joe’s kids. We’re going to try and investigate further during normal business hours, but for now all the more reason to act like you’re too good for Copa!
Campus area restaurants would really like to give you every excuse to eat out. 34th Street Food & Drink editors Jess Goodman and Josh Goldman bring you the low down on this fall’s savory specials.
- Every Monday night, 8 to 10 p.m., during Football Season, Distrito is offering endless tacos and enchiladas at $25 per person, as well as $2 Don Equis on tap. Along with the Chilango chopped salad and a side of rice and beans, which automatically accompany every ‘endless menu,’ you’ll choose from an array smaller, tapas-style versions of their most popular Cantina tacos and enchiladas (and some new additions) — our favorites are the chicken and yellowfish tacos. In all, this Monday Night Football special is well worth the money; come hungry! Try to be seated in the second floor lounge, though, where they project the game on a big screen — the awkwardly placed TVs in the cantina make it hard to focus on the football.
Special offers from Pod, Marathon and Copa after the jump.
