Pickles to make an appearance at Hillel seder

Dil Pickles’ publicist announced today that he and his family will make the trek from Hollywood to celebrate Passover with the Brown Jewish community at Brown/RISD Hillel April 6.

As part of the Pickles’ contract, Hillel has agreed to provide a community playpen for all to enjoy, along with a kosher dinner and matzah.

Rumors are swirling about the Pickles’ propensity to break out into Passover-themed song. There is also speculation that the family will attend Hillel’s Musical Seder. Sources close to the Pickles have confirmed that, during their visit, they will hold a dramatic reading of Let My Babies Go! A Passover Story.

BDH: So are you majoring in theater, then?
BC: No, I’m majoring in Economics.

On a Friday night you might find yourself…Now, probably the GCB. Back before I was 21… I don’t know. It depends on how busy I was. My friends and I were part of the Wayland crew — we all lived in Wayland and stuck together. Maybe play some drinking games… I’m not sure what you’re allowed to publish? [Edit: “Basically anything.”] Me and my group of friends, [we] play a lot of word games and board games…We started with Apples to Apples, but we outgrew that pretty fast. We play games but then try to improve them — like we invented our own version of Apples to Apples.
