Spring Week is here for real. (In case you had any doubt, the weather provided a hint.) There’s just one final piece of the puzzle still missing: parties. But all of that changes tomorrow night, with Whisco. It’s time for some celebration, and here’s the perfect way to do it:

You want to start the night off classy, even if you’ll be ending up at a place that “totally blows.” With some bubbly, you celebrate the fitness/pool center’s grand opening, which also somehow coincides with you finishing your paper due early next week and succeeding in the housing lottery. Whether you’ve actually visited the new center yet or not is unimportant (although we do highly recommend it). The main thing is you and your friends all deserve some fun, and it’s got to start somewhere, right?

Next on your Spring Week marathon, the classy classic Wednesday tradition: FishCo’s legendary Fish Piss shots. Back in the day, these tasteful little shooters cost a mere buck (or so it seemed), and were the perfect way to keep the grinding dancing going. Although no one ever knew (and never will know… RIP) what they contained, the easiest way to recreate them at home is by combining all delicious drinks into one — how could that possibly go wrong?

You’re invited to a St. Patrick’s Day party at the Sci Li!

If you’re still trying to nail down your plans for next Wednesday’s drunken celebration of Irish culture, look no further.

This morning, Brown students who actually read Morning Mail woke up to an invitation from WiSE (Women in Science and Engineering) and MathWiSE to the St. Patrick’s Day Sci Li Challenge, their evening of “good ol’ St Patrick’s Day fun.”

Anyone familiar with Brown traditions knows what the Sci Li Challenge is, and it’s probably not quite what WiSE is advertising with their “hunt for treasure (well, sort of)” (although the meaning of “sort of” is very ambiguous). They should realize it’s dangerous to throw that term around lightly, especially when it’s linked to St. Patrick’s Day! Continue Reading


Howard convicted for role in Fish Co. incident

Former Brown football player David Howard ’09.5 was convicted of simple assault in District Court on Tuesday,  the Providence Journal reports. Howard was accused of punching a patron while working as a bouncer at Fish Co. in April.

Howard received one year’s probation and payment of court costs, the ProJo reported. He was also ordered to not have contact with the victim, Paul Lilley.

Howard’s lawyer announced that an appeal is in the works.

Police had said Howard punched Lilley several times in the face after escorting him from the bar during a party for Bryant University students. Lilley was taken to Rhode Island Hospital.

In the wake of the incident, Fish Co. agreed to close for three days after a hearing in August.
