Get your drinking pants on now because registration ends tomorrow for what sounds like a winning combo: a team scavenger hunt and bar crawl through some of our favorite (…and not so favorite) UCity spots on Cinco de Mayo! (For you Anglophiles, that’s May 5th.)
According to uwishunu, Young Friends of University City, which exists, is partnering with six bars and restaurants to put on the first (annual, we hope) “Hunt ‘n Crawl”. Participants form teams of up to 10, and then complete a list of tasks and challenges throughout University City at spots like City Tap House, Landmark Americana Tap & Grill, New Deck Tavern, Smokey Joe’s, The Blockley, and Pizza Rustica.
All participants get in on the drink specials offered at each locale, as well as a few other perks. We’re hearing reports of “Hunt N Crawl” promotional T-shirts, and in culturally insensitive Cinco de Mayo fashion, a team sombrero. The winners will receive a complimentary brunch at City Tap House and a $75 bar credit at Blockley. Take us out for a drink after you claim your prize!

It’s Wednesday again, and you know what that means: some top notch crime reportáge from our friends at the DP. Because you don’t want to read about unattended-iPod theft any more than we do (come on people – at least ask someone to keep an eye on your shit!), we’ve sorted through the legal wreckage of the week to bring you the most enticing scraps. Join us, won’t you?
On the 16th, a 39 year old male student reported that his laptop was allegedly stolen from his unattended bag in Van Pelt. OK, first things first: the age thing is really throwing us. Does this mean that all the disheveled olds that we see carrying plastic bags full of newspaper and old computers through Rosengarten are actually enrolled? We thought they were just there to use the bathroom, but hey – looks like the parents-in-your-CGS-class have reasons for occasionally visiting the library, too.
Things get literary (no they don’t) after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
Starting tomorrow and ending the 30th, University City Dining Days bring you 20 of West Philly’s finest restaurants.
