There was once a Columbia event called “40s on 40,” a chance for seniors who were forty days away from graduation to drink large quantities of malt liquor in the Quad (and possibly pour one out for Lil’ Saint). Last year the event became “40 Days Until Graduation,” a student council sanctioned event, complete with a crowded pen in which students who wanted to drink were corralled.
This year’s “40 Days” is starting now (and going ’till 4) in Low Plaza. There are free t-shirts for the first few hundred attendees, and free food and drink, including up to four beers. No outside backpacks or containers allowed.
Bwog certainly isn’t looking a gift horse in the mouth, but, like Lerner Pub, the best of course of action here will probably be to show up early, imbibe quickly, and withdraw hastily.
