Brown Does PawSox Game This Sunday

Matthew Colantonio ’11 of the visiting Columbus Clippers

If you’ve been looking for the perfect time to hit up some minor league baseball, you just found it. For a 20-dollar price tag, the event sponsors will hit you up with a ticket to this Sunday’s PawSox game, round-trip bus transportation, a meal (hot dog, chips, Gatorade), and a chance to run the bases after the game, if that’s something you’re into. The PawSox, of course, are the Red Sox triple-A affiliate (that is, their best minor league team) and the only professional baseball team in Rhode Island. Yeah, that’s right – somehow, there’s only one professional baseball team in Rhode Island. Go figure.

Need some more reasons to go? Fine. 1) The PawSox are a good team–league champs last year and 12-7 so far this year. 2) Brown alum Matthew Colantonio ’11 will be playing for the visiting Columbus Clippers. 3) I really only thought of two reasons, but you should go. According to the Facebook event, those who want a ticket should email Joshua_Weiner@brown.edu or Connor_Sakwa@brown.edu. The PawSox are waiting.

Cupcakes and fruit tarts and cheesecakes, oh my!

Alright, we take back everything we’ve ever said about the Ratty.

Make your way down to the lovely Sharpe Refectory for fruit tarts, piña colada and s’mores cupcakes, tiramisu, and vegan strawberry and Oreo cheesecake. We’re lovin’ this more than Blue Room focaccia and V-Dub CFF combined.

Why? Just ‘cause.
