Let’s give a big Ni hao to West Philly’s newest BYO: Sang Kee! The BYO status will run every Friday and Saturday starting in April, which places the debutante ball at this 36th and Chestnut noodle house on April 6th. 恭喜, Sang Kee!
Monday, January 16, marks the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. Known nationally as a day of service, Monday is known by most students as day without lecture. Which is nice! But why not spend that time doing something a little more meaningful than watching reruns of “Gossip Girl” with a bag of SunChips?
Penn has a full schedule of activities planned not only for this Monday but this entire month! On Monday, volunteers are needed between the hours of 8:30 and 2 to participate in various campus and community initiatives, including student mentoring, West Philadelphia beautification projects and other events. The day culminates in a candlelight vigil that starts at 7 at DuBois. Check the calendar in the link above for more presentations, film screenings and lectures.
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.
After a long, depressing break, Street is finally back with a whole new staff and slew of arts and culture. Mhm girl, it’s been a big week.
But if that’s not your thing, fear not because Arts brings us something totally Lady Gaga–esque: an art show based on meat. We’re hoping this modern art is E. coli free. Speaking of meat, have you heard Kanye and Jay–Z’s H.A.M.?
Good thing our centerspread brings you to an after–school program in Fishtown where kids of all ages get their rock on and jam out as a way to stay out of trouble. Literally — it’s School of Rock. Let’s just hope these kids enjoy our Brussels sprouts recipe of the week.
Times are tough these days. Breadlines are longer than ever and even though shantytowns are where all the rebels hang out, we’re really missing four walls and a roof. Damn. Anywho, this week Street attempts to brighten your day and show you the joys of this depressing life! Deal or New Deal?
In reality, Hoovervilles aren’t that bad. You can find love (and syphilis) there. Pinky promise. But have no fear, we caught up with Eleanor Roosevelt who drunkenly divulged her family recipe for Jell–O salad — it involves lots and lots of mayo.
But what we’re all wondering is what the HECK will our beloved Pennsyl–vain–i–a look like in 2010?! Here are our guesses. We can ponder these and other philosophical thoughts while listening to big (and small) band music. Oh yeah, and Hollywood is gay.
Philly is just booming with fun characters these days. Lenny the Cabbie discusses famous art… in common man speak. So it makes sense, you know? But he lost his dame to some a–hole with a Charlie Chaplin mustache.
Ugh, when will this horrid year be over? Oh right, in January. See you then, suckas!
October’s here and you know what that means – auditions for the Vagina Monologues are almost upon us! Yes, this Friday (4-8 PM), Saturday (12-6 PM) and Sunday (10-4 PM) in the Platt Arts House, you can try out to be part of the Vagina Monologues show, which takes place in February. Although no experience is necessary and you need not prepare anything, sources say that having a vagina will definitely work in your favor. Got questions? E-mail them to email@example.com.
We did some serious investigate reporting (read: eating) at the “new” Greek Lady this morning and were pleasantly surprised to find the prices haven’t budged and the menu changed only slightly. We were greeted by a spankin’ new laminated breakfast menu and an Ancient Grecian aesthetic. Could this really be the same Greek Lady (@ Penn) we’d all grown to love? Judging from the same omelets, french fries and salads our favorite lady has indeed, stayed true to her roots.
We are the champions! The football team brought home a 17-7 win over Harvard on Saturday, which guarantees Penn at least a share of the Ivy League Championship. Perhaps more importantly, the team (and Penn football’s six-year championship dry spell) was profiled by the New York Times on Friday. The story delves into the emotional hurdles the team has faced since Al Bagnoli took over as coach (grab some Kleenex), but it seems to us that – as of Saturday – the football boys are nothing but cigars and smiles.
More photos of that post-victory glow after the jump.
