Street Presents: Miss Lisa Lisa at Bob and Barbara’s

It’s a wonderful time during the year. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Shoutouts just around that other corner. But before we cut both of those corners, we have another Street tradition for you: Cultural Elite.

Aside from bashing and thrashing at our beloved seniors, Street also had time to check in with the boys of BMOC. Food & Drink stumbled across Market Street. to the food trucks dotting Drexel’s campus.

Film hung out with some Penn celebs to find out their secret celebrity crushes. Music drowned their sorrows in a nice cup of Drake. Arts named a Cribz winner! He’s in Theos. Shocker.

This week’s feature is about Lisa Lisa (the girl so nice they named her twice!) and her weekly drag show at South Street bar, Bob and Barbara’s.

And Lowbrow readies you for Thanksgiving with some timely pick up lines.

Don’t forget to submit your Shoutouts in the nifty tip box at the top of this page. Or to shoutouts@34st.com. Get at us. We love it.

Déjà Vu

Anything about this video look familiar? How ’bout the old school boombox and random bits of animation? Where have we seen that before? Oh right. Here.
Oh yeah, and that’s our campus. (Woo hoo, we’re so culturally relevant!)

Street Presents The 10th Annual Cultural Elite, Among Other Things

As far as Street traditions go, we’ve got some good ones. Shoutouts (in two weeks!), Freshman Superlatives, Sweeper… but really it’s Cultural Elite, our yearly index of the who’s-who of the senior class, that is the most difficult to put together. But somehow, painstakingly, we’ve narrowed the 2,500–odd of us down to the most notable 79.

Did you make the list? Join us at 11 p.m. at Smokes tonight for a pat on the back (so to speak) for the four years of hard work that landed you among Street‘s Elite.

Aaaand, back to normal Street programing: This week’s cover story is a feature on One Step Away, a grass roots newspaper giving homeless Philadelphians a leg up. Strictly Funk’s Adie Remiker is Ego of the Week, Food & Drink tags along on a blind date/restaurant review at Philly Italian establishment Il Portico, and Film gives you a (glowing!) sneak peak of the latest Harry Potter installment. Music gleaned campus’ music-attuned community to bring you a fine looking crop of song recommendations, and Arts explores Philadelphia with Art History prof Julie Davis.

As usual, our Writers’ Meeting is tonight at 6:30 p.m. at 4015 Walnut. Our post-Thanksgiving issue is the last of the semester as regular content goes, so it’s your last chance!! Get involved!

Oh Captain, My Captain!

Don’t you sometimes wish you could find a life-size poster of Kirk Cameron, smack in the middle of your weekly issue of Street? Perhaps your quest for the perfect butterfly clip to pin back those nasty flyaway hairs, has left you feeling frustrated and alone. Or maybe you just want to learn how to make edible jewelry to wear to your BFFAEAE’s totally bomb pool party. Well this week, Street can show you how because it’s the Joke Issue, where prepubescent dreams come true!

This week, All That’s Ashley is here to answer your most embarrassing questions with some heartfelt advice. We have a rockin’ movie review of everyone’s faves, MK & A; a complex quiz to assess what kind of lip moisturizer best fits your quirky personalities and we test to see if you really have what it takes to be a Mambo #5 Girl.

But the Joke Issue wouldn’t be complete without Cultural Elite: the dreaded (for some) yet instantly satisfying (for all) Street-selected list of cool (or sometimes, totally uncool) seniors that you should want to know (of).

So, like, OK. As you’re about to embark on your last day of classes remember to pick up a copy of Tiger Street (or download the PDF) and let your teeny bopper adventures begin! And because we’re really good at studying for finals, this week’s writers’ meeting will be tequila-filled at Smoke’s. Check inside the issue to see if you’ve been crushed!
