The 115th Annual Varsity Show will be upon us in less than two weeks, for four all-too-brief performances. The February preview promised a choreographed exorcism and drunken
freshmen first-years galore. Does it get any better?
Yes, if you’re a Columbia College senior. Normally it’s five dollars to get in, but CC’09 is offering two hundred $2 tickets to the Saturday, May 2 show to College card-carrying seniors. That’s one and a half subway rides! Until the fare hike, anyway.
The tickets lead you to a special ’09 section where hors d’oeuvres will be served during intermission. Hors d’oeuvres. In Roone. It’s got to be better than dashing out to 212 for a chocolate croissant made out of tree bark.
Whether you anticipate each Varsity Show with avidity or need an excuse to get around to seeing one of these things in your last year, the deal is on the table. Just think about where you could go with that money! (Brooklyn, and half of the way back.)
