We know what the stereotypical Penn Wednesday night is like. Get out of class, take a nap, eat some Greek Lady, hop on your Vespa, party at the Philadelphia Zoo, steal a baby rhino, go to sleep on your water bed, toss and turn because you tore a baby away from its mother, give it a big hug, return it. Same old drag, week after week. Are you looking for something to do that’ll shake things up a little?
The answer is Penn First Wednesday at the Institute of Contemporary Art. So many days ago, we told you about all the cool stuff going on at the ICA this fall and tonight there’s a great slate of programming related to those shows. Check after the jump for the full schedule. Read the rest of this entry »
Barukh atah Adonai...
Sadly, there don’t seem to be any events involving <3ing the female orgasm this week, but there’s still plenty going on around campus, especially if you’re Jewish or Greek.
Rosh Hashanah began Monday at sundown and services continue today and tomorrow. Hillel’s got the scoop on times and locations for reform, conservative and orthodox services. How inconvenient is it, by the way, when you realize that none of your Jewish friends are the same denomination as you? Best to befriend a wide array of Jews to avoid this issue in the future.
On top of the high holiday festivities, this week is also Greektober Fest. Last night was Greek Bowling at Strikes, today is a Greek Blood Drive (because Greek blood is the most virile!), Friday is a Greek Powderpuff football game, and Sunday is a Greek Academic Bowl emceed by Amy Gutmann’s right-hand-woman and Penn’s resident socialite Leah Popowich. The full calendar is here.
Not Greek or Jewish? The ICA welcomes one and all at Penn First Wednesdays, at 7 p.m. on October 1st, FREE with Penncard! There will be free coffee, desserts, a meet-and-greek with artist Odili Donald Odita and a performance by DJ Spooky. More details here.
