If there’s one thing every college student loves, it’s free food. Each week, Vox will highlight a few events to help you survive without a meal plan. Send tips and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Goldman will discuss how his life and his passion for cake making—all while creating one of the unique cakes that made his bakery, Charm City Cakes, famous.
The tickets cost five dollars online, or eight dollars at the door—and yes, we know that we broke our own rule about the food being free. However, this is probably the only time you can get a cake like this for cheap, since cakes regularly cost upwards of $1,000.
Jake Gyllenhaal and ice cream
Okay, so maybe Gyllenhaal won’t actually be there, but GU Pride will be hosting a “Brokeback Georgetown Ice Cream Social” on Thursday from 8 to 10 p.m. in Bulldog Alley.
Following this year’s Welcome Week theme, the annual ice cream get-together will have lots of “western-themed hootenanny.” We don’t know what that could mean, but check it out anyway to can get free ice cream and learn more about one of Georgetown’s most active student groups.
Yep, we’re this shameless
As many of our beloved commenters love to point out, Vox and the Voice have no scruples about unabashedly promoting ourselves, so we figured we’d do it again this week!
On Friday at 6 p.m. in Leavey 413, join us for our annual open house featuring delicious Ledo’s Pizza. We’ll have pizza as far as the eye can see, so make sure to bring along a friend and learn more about your favorite campus newspaper (and blog).
You don’t have to be only interested in writing, because we also need people interested in design, business, copy editing, and much more.
Who knows, maybe you’ll even switch from being a Vox commenter to a Vox blogger?
