Free Food for All: Homecoming and Traditions Day
This week, Homecoming and Traditions Day are featuring a series of probably fun events that will also have free food. Here’s the breakdown of the events, and which ones can provide you with your free food fix.
Friday, September 28th – Traditions Day (hosted by The Office of Advancement and the Senior Class Committee)
9 a.m. Bagels and Coffee from The Corp (Red Square): Start your morning off the way it usually does with bagels and coffee from The Corp – except for free.
12 p.m. GUGS burgers (Copley Lawn): You know it’s Friday when the smell of GUGS burgers is in the air, you know it’s homecoming weekend when you eat them for free.
— Local food traditions (Red Square): Enjoy the best of Georgetown and M Street restaurants without the usual heavy price tag. We recommend taking a food break to dunk fellow Hoyas in the dunk tank. [Voice Sports Editor Kevin Joseph will be in the dunk tank for those of you who disagree with any of his latest Sports Sermons.]
1 p.m. Wingo’s Eating Contest (Copley Lawn): This wing joint is so well loved by Hoyas that it has become a tradition in itself. Prove that you’re a true Wingo’s fanatic by winning this eating contest.
Other Traditions Day events (sans free food, but still very awesome) include Powderpuff games, Georgetown trivia, and performances by your favorite a cappella groups and other student groups.
Saturday, September 29th – Homecoming
11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Tailgate (McDonough Parking Lot): Those who have registered for the Homecoming Tailgate will enjoy barbecue, pizza, ice cream, and beverages from vendors.
