DJ Pauly D in da house

Gym. Tan. Laundry. Spin.

Need something to do Saturday night? Chances are this won’t solve that problem–but, just in case, we’re obliged to tell you that everyone’s second or third favorite Jersey Shore cast member will be dropping mad beats at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island this Saturday, November 23.

Yes, that’s right, people. DJ Pauly D (a.k.a. Paul DelVecchio a.k.a. someone you forgot existed) will be returning to his home state to play all his music that we definitely know.

Tickets are actually selling fast because, bizarrely, the 33-year-old Providence native has accumulated a fervent and adoring Rhode Island fanbase. In 2010, his mere visit to a friend at University of Rhode Island incited a riot resulting in an official URI rule: Pauly D can no longer come on campus unannounced. The GTL guru is acutely aware of his adoring fans in Rhode Island, having humbly tweeted after the event, “See what happens when I’m in town for 1 day Lmaooo.”

What to do this weekend: SEEED Summit

We all know Brown students are constantly looking for ways to innovate and change the world–a lot of college students are. What is unique to Brown students, however, is their continued efforts to engage in social enterprises. The Social Enterprise Ecosystem Economic Development (SEEED) is the first national conference that emphasizes conducting business to improve communities, rather than simply to make a profit. The effort is a collaboration between the University and Social Venture Partners Rhode Island.

The SEEED Summit spans Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27. Registration begins on Friday at 8 a.m. in Sayles Hall. The conference has many guest speakers and table discussions that cover topics ranging from social impacts of business to mobilizing the social enterprise movement. At last year’s conference, there were more than 425 social enterprise leaders from 15 states. Many business leaders visited and helped coach current social entrepreneurs. Make sure to check out the website and, if you’re interested, register. Tickets are discounted for students and are available for either one or two days.

In the midst of midterm season, everyone at Brown makes the desperate dash between class, Starbucks and the SciLi all weekend in their attempts to finish everything on schedule. It’s only healthy to break free of the routine and enjoy Providence in the (almost) springtime! Close your laptop, your textbook and your Facebook and check out the local scene! This week, we have a wide variety of events to suit a range of interests, so there’s no excuse to stay on the Hill (not even that Stats exam).

1. Providence French Film Festival
When: Saturday and Sunday: 12, 2, 4:15, 6:30 and 9 p.m.
Where: Cable Car Cinema

The nearly two-week-long French Film Festival, which is presented by Brown, ends this weekend!  From 12 to 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, you can drop by Cable Car Cinema and see a celebrated French film for only $7. Films vary from documentaries like Les Invisibles (The Invisibles), which follows the lives of homosexuals in France who paved the way to social justice, to witty comedies such as Le sens de l’humour (Sense of Humor), which tells the story of two comedians who are kidnapped by a serial killer in Quebec. You don’t need a beret or baguette to enjoy these French masterpieces, we unofficially recommend both. Continue Reading
