Free Weiners For Breakfast

If you rolled out of bed this morning and were all “Damn, a hot dog would be just the thing to rouse me from my state of semi-slumber,” then trek on over to the unidentified high rise pictured above Rodin for a dream come true, free of charge. There is truly nothing that says good morning like a piece of packaged, processed meat.

Books, Books, All Types of Books

Calling all bookworms! The Kelly Writers House (3805 Locust Walk for you freshmen folk) just announced that it will be holding an open house today at 2pm. The afternoon will be complete with poem-making stations (for the aspiring artist), t-shirt “embellishing” (for those who wish they were still in preschool), ice cream (for those who attend these events only for the free food) and a supposedly MASSIVE book sale.

Massive, eh? Text books? Cook books? Library books? Comic books? We dunno, which is why you should go and tell us all ’bout it. Anyone is welcome to attend.

Free Wieners For Everybody

With National Kissing Day long gone and National Walk of Shame Day not for another week, there’s a hole in our hearts where another patriotically offbeat reason to do something ridiculous should be. Enter–National Hot Dog Day.

Scheduled for Saturday, July 23rd, you can pick up your free ‘dog from 1-6 p.m. at 139 North Third Street (just outside of Silicon). We know what you’re thinking: this is just another excuse to eat something long and meaty in public. But wait, it’s like so totally not. In order to get your free wiener, you have to bring an item of clothing or miscellaneous good for children aged from infants through preteens. Yay, philanthropy!

Happy 7/11 -- It's free Slurpee day at 7-Eleven! Get to one ASAP and beat the heat.

Everyone Is Trying Hard To Make Sports Fun

And bless them for it. They literally could not make it easier or more worthwhile to go to the (apparently major) home women’s lax game against Princeton on Wednesday. They’re offering:

  • free food (it’s 4/20… yes)
  • shuttle buses from off-campus to Franklin Field every hour (!!)
  • and a DJ

So at this point we actually want to go. Check the full details (including where and when to hop on the shuttle) after the jump!
