In light of the hits and misses Bwog witnessed over the holiday, we have some recommendations for next year for those seeking their lovers’ favor.
Last weekend, a young prospie acquainted with Bwog told us that, during the infamous New York City bus tour, she and other students were given bingo cards filled with “typical NYC sights” and were told to fill them out as they rode through the city. The cards, she told us, included such wholesome items as […]
