Bar Night at Usdan

It’s Bar Night at Usdan.  It’s BAR NIGHT at USDAN.  A headline out of my dreams:

A full range of mocktails and sodas will be served with labeled ingredients.

We will provide a range of different activities such as Wii, trivia competition, water pong, darts, karaoke, pool, foosball, and other
games. Following the bar night theme, we will be serving fries, onion rings and chicken fingers.

While participating in this fun filled event, students can enjoy delicious drinks and great entertainment with friends, without
worrying about having a terrible hangover the next day. This will also be a scent and strobe-light free event.

Date: Friday, November 2
Time: 9:30pm-11:59pm
Place:  The Usdan Center
Cost: Noneskies

Film Series: Magic Mike

2012. USA. Dir: Steven Soderbergh. With Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughy. 110 min.

Oh yes, if you like handsome guys gyrating to loud music, there is plenty to enjoy here. But somehow Soderbergh also elevates this fun, sexy romp into a humanistic drama about the frustrations and repressed dreams of the modern American man. If that modern American man is shirtless a lot.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.

Wesleyan Comedy Groups Performing at Not-Wesleyan

Come see Wesleyan Improv groups Gag Reflex and Desperate Measures perform long and short form, respectively, with Middletown Improv group Tick Tick… BOOM! The Sticks Improv. This show will be a lot like the Comedy Combo show at the beginning of the year, so if you liked that, you are sure to love this! What’s more, it’s located somewhere other than Wesleyan’s campus. Get out and explore! For you adventurous folk returning from an extravagant dinner at Typhoon, stop by and get some laughs. We promise you’ll be done by bedtime.

Date: November 2, 2012
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: 190 Cross Street
Cost:  $10
