Free Food-For-All: The icing on the cake

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

Get charmed

Duff Goldman, star of the hit Food Network TV show “Ace of Cakes,” will perform some of his cake magic on Tuesday at 8 p.m. in Gaston Hall.

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?

  1. Ledo’s “pizza” probably ranks behind the cardboard box it comes in, and the tires on the van that delivered it, in terms of the things I’d classify as “delicious.” I’m disappointed Vox would be spreading such slanderous lies.

  2. Agreed, Doug. Why this website continues to promote Ledo’s Pizza is a mystery to me. That they serve it at their own open house only makes their love for it more delusion, because it’s clear they’re not being paid to promote it if they eat it themselves.
