What to do today: 4/20

Oh, yes. The day has come. But the weather isn’t as promising as the daydreams you’ve been having during Bio lecture. Chances of rain are high, with thunderstorms looming as the barely visible sun sets, so here’s a list of what’s going on around Brown so as to not rain on your parade. Most of the events are FREE, so why not stop by and check them out?

Planet Taco: The Globalization of Mexican Culture
5:30 PM
List Art Building, Room 120
Free

This lecture will probably not help calm your munchies, but if you stick around till the end, you will be rewarded with— you guessed it!— yummy Mexican food from Mexico Garibaldi restaurant. Historian Jeffrey Pilcher will talk about the Americanization of Mexican cuisine as part of a lecture series entitled Tastes of America. Reception (and food tasting!) will be held at the Haffenreffer Museum.

Yoga on the Green
5-7 PM
Lincoln Field
Donations encouraged
Location and date will change according to the weather, so this one’s a maybe.

If the sun is shining, lazily migrate from the Main Green to Lincoln Field for some meditation and Sun salutations. Donations for Japan earthquake relief are encouraged, with a suggested donation of $15 (what you would normally pay for a yoga class). You’ll probably spend the day outside if the weather is nice anyway, so why not put the time outdoors to good use?

Brown Magic: An interactive collegiate magic show!
8-9 PM
Granoff Center, Studio 1
Free

This Brown-themed magic show will blow your mind— especially if you’ve been “celebrating” today. The illusions are tailored specifically for Brown students, playing on Brunonian traditions and stereotypes, so swing by Granoff for a spellbinding end to a hazy day.

IFF Screening of On The Ice followed by Q&A with producer Cara Marcous
8-11 PM
Salomon 001
Free

After a long day of chilling on the Green and some “marking of the occasion,” snap back to reality with this drama about an Inuit hunter that witnesses a murder and is “forced to navigate the uneasy morality” that results from it. It’s pretty hard stuff, but the film will be followed by a discussion with producer Cara Marcous, so you’ll have the opportunity to speak with someone involved in the making of the film. Sweet.
