UTB regrets to report a devastating loss to the Penn community. Sadly, the nightly pilgrimage to 38th and Spruce is no more for those lone Quakers still wandering around campus. Not so sadly, the newly renovated Wawa will open in about six weeks and we know what you’re wondering: how is it possible for Wawa to get even better? We’re thinking nacho cheese fountain.
How sad, someone lost her pink scarf. We all know that a pink scarf is the perfect accessory to add to any cold weather fashion trend and it’s snowing on March 25th, so it doesn’t look like it’s getting any warmer. Let’s all take some time from our not-so-busy schedules and help this lost soul out. It’ll give us a reason to get out of bed and head to “Wawa’s.” And the $15 reward may just cover the first 20 minutes of a successful night out.
Wawa: the drunk, broke, starving, lazy, gluttonous college student’s real-life fantasy. There is perhaps no entity on campus, not even Madame President herself, revered as much as the munchie-drunchie-hoagie-milkshake-chicken strips on a bed of macaroni-all nighter snack stop havens on 36th and Chestnut and 38th and Spruce.
So it might seem crazy that a group of Cherry Hill, NJ residents are complaining about the potential construction of a Super Wawa in their neighborhood, as NBC Philadelphia reports. Traffic, noise, safety and light pollution are among their grievances, but c’mon, guys. Are you really gonna let the low-rumbling of motors keeping your kids up at night get in the way of 24/7 access to Watermelon Sour Patch Kids right from your backyard? We call shenanigans.
Once upon a time, there was no Beijing, Stouffer or Wawa, and there was a street instead of a walkway past the Nipple. Because it’s Wawa’s 25th Anniversary, we bring you a circa-1958 photo of the intersection of Woodland Walk & Spruce Street. Were McCarthy’s lunch and Sunoco gas station the Philly Diner and Wawa of yesteryear?
Did you know that tomorrow is another Wawholiday? Our favorite 24-7 hangout on 38th & Spruce has been cranking out crappy coffee and serving our midnight munchies for 25 years. To celebrate, stop by and grab a free cup of joe anytime this Thursday. Free coffee “and fun” have been promised, so bonus points to the guy who manages to snag the most free shit.
Another day, another outlet to satiate your anti-social drunchies.
We’ve all seen(/have been) that kid: you know, the one in Wawa wearing sunglasses to hide his bloodshot eyes, wondering, “shit, do I want the BBQ chips or the mint mocha milkshake?” and dripping buffalo sauce all over his Sperry’s. And as long as he’s not carrying any pot on him, hey, rock on bro–you’re totally legal. However, a recently implemented Philadelphia program has eased up even more on marijuana, giving us hella reasons to celebrate (and pretend we’re cool enough to say ‘hella’).
It’s also fitting that we are in the middle of Hoagiefest 2011, a two-month rebranding of Wawa’s regular shitty sandwiches that are available all year long. Check out our guide to the Hoagie Day events and some special Hoagiefest music selections after the jump! Read the rest of this entry »
It’s no secret that the dudes and damsels of the 19th century were the snarky pranksters of the art world. While shoot offs, naked picnics and drinking games may initially come to mind when reminiscing back on (that cute boy you sat next to during) AP World History, a featured exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is here to remind you just how much old school style rules (and help you forget how much the painful sting of adolescent rejection drools).
