Today Vox is driving into the belly of the beast, braving snow and Eastern Pennsylvania to provide coverage from inside the Carrier Dome of what may be the final Georgetown-Syracuse game for awhile. For our pregame coverage, check out our posts from yesterday (here and here). Follow our Twitter for live updates from the road and from the game, and pick up a copy of the Voice‘s print edition for more coverage of what we hope will be a great game. Hoya Saxa! Forgive us for our light posting schedule today, driving and blogging do not go together, surprisingly enough.

At last weekend’s Senior Auction, a most cute golden retriever puppy was offered as one of the night’s items to bid on. While organizers reportedly expected $5,000 for the spectacular youngin, he went for a cool $2,500. Voice photographer Matthew Funk was able to spend a few moments with the handsome, hopefully paper-trained, auction item. Vox attempts to avoid most biases, but one we shall never be ashamed of harboring is toward golden retrievers.

Literature and food cravings don’t often go hand in hand, but the Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Justice has you covered. On Tuesday, join the 2011 Caine Prize winner NoViolet Bulawayo for a reading of her work, and the reception that follows. Head over to Copley Formal Lounge at 8 p.m. for the chance to intertwine poetry and satisfying your hunger.
It’s not often that the cuisine of free food is of a high caliber, but this week you’re in luck! On Wednesday the 15th, Taiwan’s very own culinary artist Hou Chun-sheng will be serving his celebrated beef noodles at the Smithsonian Institution Freer Gallery of Art before a screening of the film Eat Drink Man Woman. Be sure to check the gallery out starting at 6 p.m., and be early to guarantee yourself some noodles.
Jesuit Heritage Week might be over, but a the festivities continue with the rescheduled Jammin’ Jesuit Java event next Wednesday. Chill out and listen to some of Georgetown’s own Jesuits and students play their eclectic mélange of instruments, complete with refreshments! The event is free, but donations go towards Magis Spring Break trips, so be sure to head over to the Village C Alumni Lounge on the 15th to check it out.
