  1. Thanks, Bwog!  

    I really appreciate that you do this every week! There are so many fantastic lectures on this campus, yet I wouldn't know about most of them without your weekly Bucket List. Thanks!

    Can you investigate the free food situation for these events? That way I can make sure I'll eat every day (and get educated in the process!).
