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.
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!
Sweetgreen Is Giving Away Free Salads This Week -- If you can make it up their weird wood plank ramp, free salad is yours till Friday from 12-2 p.m. We're not sure how many are available each day but it's worth a shot if you're around!
Update: Salads are for the first 100 people to show up. Don't be late suckas!
Serious Free Food Alert -- There's a smorgasbord of free food by the Compass from 2-5 p.m. to promote voting in student elections. Ever wanted to see a candidate live and in person? Here's your chance.
Harrison kids can break it down! The Harrison College Semi-formal, located at the oh-so-convenient Harrison College House Rooftop Lounge on Saturday, March 19, was a hit among residents and non-residents alike. For $5 ahead of time (or a whopping $7 at the door) party-goers were given free range to indulge in unlimited Maggiano’s, face paint, and masks, all in the spirit of the masquerade theme.
No need to travel far to have a slammin’ time – one elevator ride provided a b-r-e-a-t-h taking view of our own City of Brotherly Lurv. Check out our special exclusive footage of the night; yes, some of it’s kind of dark, but that’s because the formal was too busy being awesome to worry about proper lighting for our video.
Attention Kabob lovers: it’s time to wield the power of social media to win yourself a free lunch. King Kabob lunch truck (38th & Spruce) is holding a promotional campaign in the Kabob Kingdom (ahem, its Facebook page) tomorrow, and 10 lucky subjects will be crowned winners.

To the freshman men of the University (and a few awkward sophomores),
If you’re wondering where you can get your free food fix tonight and engage in some single mingle with the gentlemen of fraternity row, the following is a schedule of events for tonight and tomorrow. No need to thank us. No, seriously, don’t thank us–we sniped all this information off the IFC Facebook event.
Check it out after the jump, and don’t forget to memorize your Greek letters! (It’d be so embarrassing to confuse your ex’s with your chi’s…)
