Baby Bwogger and real-life mistake-maker Cole lists the five tragedies that will strike every first-year student at Columbia.
This Wednesday, Creative Writing faculty member Ben Marcus hosted a reading by author Carmen Maria Machado of her forthcoming debut memoir, In the Dream House in Dodge Hall.
Deputy Editor Vivian Zhou and New Bwogger Lynne Irvin are avid fans of the Diana Center Café. Such avid fans that they will love and accept her even if she’s growing up and going through
Homecoming isn’t only great for its questionably bandwagon display of school spirit and the darties beforehand. In honor of homecoming, free beer will be served to seniors outside Baker Athletics Complex! You’ll probably need to show a valid senior student ID in order to be served, so just be warned. That is all.
It’s October 3rd, and Halloween (or as some say, All Hallows’ Eve), will be upon us in just a fortnight and a half. The decidedly homogenous ‘hood of Boringside Heights is gonna get eerie real quick. Bwog hopes to highlight some of the most chilling examples of Halloween décor, in an all-encompassing post at the […]
Paying fees kind of sucks. Drinking free alcohol is awesome. Lerner Pub, an event put on by student council, reconciles the two by using part of the elusively distributed Student Life fees to provide free beer to seniors several times each semester. Because Bwog is a Liberal Artist and we like to show off our hard-earned […]
For those of you who have yet to open a window, it’s pretty darn snowy out. Bwog is excitedly lacing up our snowboots to go sledding in Riverside, but before we do, we have a winner to announce for our snow-pic snapping contest. The competition was fierce, but congratulations to tipster Lila Neiswanger, who sent […]
Tonight is the night is the night: the first snowfall of the year, minus Halloween’s premature snowmaggedon. Tonight’s weather report predicts sweet, soft, snowfall starting at midnight. So at least tomorrow’s hangover can be sledded away on fresh powder. It’ll relax everybody! For the first intrepid snow-goer to snap a shot, Bwog promises icy, free beer, of […]
Cause a 209 party is—educational. And from the looks of that label, it looks like this guy was nursin’ it for some time. Cheers, buddy. Note the dual coping mechanisms: behind the beer hangs a Nightline flyer that reads, “I’ve got 99 problems and then some.”
It’s a Saturday, and at a lot of schools across the country, that means football. And this week, there’s a ton of free food up at 218th Street, where Columbia is about to take on Penn in about an hour. But just as more important than free food is free beer! Especially when there’s lots […]
Free food is nice. But during the last week of classes, free alcohol can seem more appropriate. Village Pourhouse to the rescue! This week the Amsterdam eatery will be sending out coupons for one free Bud Light. Here’s the twist – it’s via text message. An electronic coupon! How did we ever get trashed without […]
A newish bar on the Upper West Side (alas, two blocks short of being in Morningside) has a novel concept, reports The Feedbag. Show a receipt for your cab ride there and they’ll pay for your ride– in the form of a bar tab! Now, finally there’s a reason to take a cab home after […]
It may feel like the beginning of second semester outside, but the 40 Days event is happening now out on Low Plaza. To the delight of many, they’ve got more sandwiches than one can shake a stick at. But it turns out a large bunch of seniors are in the middle of another countdown, that […]
CCSC Prez Seth Flaxman writes in to let us know there will be free edibles at the Columbia v. Duke basketball game viewing party tonight in the Lerner auditorium at 8 pm. There will also be free t-shirts and maybe some school spirit on hand. And if you have 2 IDs, there will be alcohol, […]
Come get drunk (and fed faux-barbeque) with the Department of Political Science between five and seven this evening, at Revson Plaza. For those of you who don’t know, that’s the overpass in the evil shadow of the law school (but only in the mornings—tonight, Revson will be in the beneficient shadow of Philosophy Hall). Don’t […]
Columbia has just posted its alcohol policy and rules for “pre-game initiatives” at Baker. And guess what? Free beer!* *One cup per person per concession run, up to four concession runs permitted, only if you have two valid forms of ID [updated] with birthdate. You may only drink in specified areas during the […]
