Grab your reusable grocery bags; the European yogurt company Müller and Quaker are handing out cartons of free yogurt on Olive and Thayer right now. You can choose from chocolate or strawberry, and each carton has 10 individual sized cups of yogurt. Yeah, you read that right. 10. Free. We overhead them saying they’d be back, so if you miss out today because of that afternoon seminar you’re shopping, you’ll be able to save some of your Flex Points next week and indulge in creamy, yogurt-y goodness.
If you’re in the library and are looking for a little more free food than was what was handed to you last night, head on down to Pizza Nite, taking place at 9 p.m. tonight at the SciLi and at the same time tomorrow at the Rock.
Pizza Nite, a semesterly tradition, is a night unlike all others: Friendly library workers bring out boxes and boxes of pizza by the stack, feeding the hungry masses. Depending on the crowds, it can one of the more epic free pizza events out there.
We know it’s been a long week. We also know it’s just Tuesday — we don’t judge. Luckily, today will be a good day. Why? Because it’s FREE CONE DAY AT BEN & JERRY’S! If you’re still bummed because you missed IHOP’s National Pancake Day, fear not: you don’t need a Zipcar to enjoy this sweet deal. Head over to the
dangerously close convenient Ben & Jerry’s scoop shop on Meeting St. anytime today from noon to 8:00 p.m. for your free cone.
If you’re really intense about your free ice cream, go to our local shop’s website to check out the selection of flavors available to plan strategically. Ben & Jerry’s recently launched a Greek frozen yogurt line, and while it might be too adventurous, it’s still free. It’s all about the big picture, people.
If you’re reading this during class,
get off the Internet start devising your game plan now. Last year’s line got pretty cray pretty fast, so plan accordingly. Also, be respectful of those around you and don’t cut in line. It’s not in the spirit of free ice cream. Spread the love, it’s the Ben & Jerry’s way.
The Sarah Doyle Gallery is proud to present Random Harvest, a solo show of works by
artist Jennifer Campbell. Light refreshments (cheese, crackers, cookies, soda, and sparkling water) will be served.
Independent Study Info Session & DUG Dinner
Faunce 228: Curricular Resource Center
If you’re interested in doing a GISP, ISP, Academic Internship, or an Independent Concentration, go to an Info Session at the Curricular Resource Program at 6:30 pm. Free dinner will be served at 7 pm, but an RSVP is required (a small price to pay for some free chow, obvi).
Tonight, the awesomeness repeats itself at the Rock at 9 pm. I was chatting with one of the librarians, and he mentioned that they order 90 pizzas for the SciLi’s Pizza Nite and 80 pizzas for the Rock’s. Last night, the pizza was almost all gone in a little over five minutes.
If this is your first semester at Brown, take note: the night and time of the Naked Donut Run is always kept secret until immediately prior, but, for the most part, the runs are held the night before finals start. The evening the run is rumored to take place, the libraries are even more packed than a usual night during finals week. It’s also usually pretty obvious that half the people there don’t really have a reason to be in the FriSC at midnight – they’re just waiting for their biannual dose of tasteful nudity and tasty donuts.
If you’re one of those people who stakes out a library spot solely to catch a glimpse of what you could see any day on John Street (plus baked goods), it can get boring waiting for the runners to arrive. Here are some ways you can pass the time other than refreshing Facebook every other minute to see if your friend at the Rock has posted about naked people: [Read more →]
Pizza Nite is probably one of the best free food events of the semester. First, there’s the anticipation. The crowds are waiting, growing larger and increasingly impatient. The pizza never arrives on time. Then, suddenly, the big moment arrives — library workers emerge with stacks of pizza boxes. The crowd goes nuts for the pizza, and you wonder if there will be any left when you get to the front of the line. Just then, 20 more boxes of pizza arrive, putting your fears to rest. As the pizza continues to disappear, another dozen boxes come along, then another dozen. In the end, something like a hundred pizzas are consumed in the span of a few minutes. (Then they bring out some cookies and fruit.) [Read more →]
SPEC is hosting its annual Candyland event tonight from 8pm-10pm in Sayles. Relive your favorite childhood board game (it was always way cooler than Chutes and Ladders) with pretty much every type of sweets imaginable – and yes, there will be chocolate fountains. The most exciting part? It’s all free, so you can literally gorge yourself on candy until you need to be rolled out of the building. Your best bet is to get there early and avoid the inevitably enormous line.
College is all about juxtaposing the old with the new, combining the rights of adulthood with childhood nostalgia. Those songs you loved in middle school are even more fun to sing while drunk! What better way to procrastinate writing your thesis than by watching old cartoons and playing Pokémon on your Gameboy? Sometimes, you just have to feel like a kid again, and you can do that on Halloween in the midst of all the more “mature” antics.
Yes, there are some of us who still like to go trick-or-treating. We’ve all heard about how weird it is that Halloween is on a Monday, but honestly, that’s the perfect excuse. You can still celebrate Halloween on the actual day without impeding your ability to write that paper due Tuesday at noon, and you get free candy out of it! Here are some tips to get the most out of being the oldest trick-or-treater on the block:
Serving up soup at National Food Day.
October 24th is National Food Day, and fellow students are celebrating with quite a production on the Main Green. There’ s FREE FOOD throughout most of the afternoon, and students from the Sustainable Food Initiative will school you all on the best ways to eat both healthily and locally. Did I say free food?
Also, be sure to check out the special food day celebration dinner at the Ratty tonight from 4:00-7:30.
