Forewarned is Fore(20)armed
Written by Bwog Staff
4/20 conveniently lands on a Friday this year, meaning there’s a whole lot to do around campus in terms of food, parties, and other events than skipping class and heading to Riverside. Bwog’s crack team researchers have compiled a list of events so you don’t have to.
Bike to Campus Day: In a truly, um, green spirit, 4/20 is also Ride Your Bike to Campus Day. Public Safety will be offering free bike tune-ups and registration with the NYPD at the sundial from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., plus discount bike accessories.
Delta Gamma’s Anchor Bake: The ladies of Delta Gamma will be satisfying your munchies needs on College Walk and the Lerner ramps from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The food may not be free, but there’s cupcakes, brownies, and even vegan goods, plus the proceeds go to Service for Sight.
Poli Sci-Econ Rivalry Game: The second annual rivalry game will take place at the Riverside Park Soccer Field, promising “eternal glory and preference in the IAB elevators” for the winners. Meet at the sundial at noon if you want to partake in the festivities and the Heights victory celebration immediately afterward.
Fed Bash: From 4-6 pm in the Van Am Quad, the Federalist will be giving out free pizza, cake, and soft drinks.
Football Spring Game: The annual spring CU football scrimmage will take place at 6 pm at (the appropriately named) Baker Field, followed by a barbecue dinner by Rack and Soul–though there is a cost for dinner.
A Political Race featuring city comptroller John C. Liu: It’s not exactly 4/20 oriented, but the panel, sponsored by Asian/Pacific American Heritage month, features FREE Dinosaur BBQ. The panel’s at 6:30 in Lerner cinema, but go early–if Sunday’s Postcrypt Folk Fest was any judge, there’s going to be a hefty line.
The Odyssey: In a performance that promises to be a trip and a half, the journey of the Odyssey crossed with Virginia Woolf will start at 8 pm in the Hamilton lobby. It will be on at the same time on Saturday.
Bacchanal’s Space Jam Screening: Following up on last Saturday’s spring concert, Bacchanal events will be showing the 1996 cult classic in Ancel Plaza at 8 pm. For those who never had a childhood, Space Jam co-stars Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan. Trippy.
