Free Food-for-All: High brow noshing

Kudos to those of you reading who can stretch free food into full meal; this week, if you’re prepared to use more brain cells than usually necessary for eating, your stomachs won’t regret it!

Socially Conscious Munchies

If you haven’t heard of the floods in Pakistan and the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the region some have deemed the worst disaster of our lifetime … you’ve obviously been sleeping through Professor Elmendorf’s Foundations of Biology class.

On Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the South Asian Society and UNICEF-Georgetown will be hosting a dinner in McCarthy Hall’s fourth floor common room to spotlight the issues surrounding the floods. (The food is free, but donations are encouraged.)

Chow down on South Asian cuisine, aid a humanitarian cause that needs support, and enjoy your just desserts.

Poetic Provisions

Some professors say the most difficult thing at Georgetown is booking a classroom, but we’d argue the conflict between events with free food is the most difficult choice for our stomachs.

On the same night as the UNICEF event, Professor Fanny Howe will be reading some of her renowned experimental poetry in an event hosted by the Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Justice. The reading will begin at 8 p.m. in the McShain Lounge, and light refreshments will be served afterward. If you’re really hankering for some poetry, don’t miss Howe’s seminar, which precedes the reading at 5:30 p.m. in New North 408.

Even Techies Gotta Eat

No time for extended research on new apps? More interested in technology than literature? Completely bewildered by the behemoth archives of the Apple App store?

This Friday from noon until 12:30 p.m., the Dahlgren Medical Library is hosting the first of it’s “First Fridays Flash & Dash” technology information sessions. This week’s subject is “Apps of the Moment.”

Stop by the Dahlgren Medical Library conference room to see what piques your interest—and enjoy some beverages.

(And, as always, “Cookie Friday” continues at the Bioethics Research Library from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Healy 102.)
