Every year, hundreds of college kids flock to Massachusetts Avenue to participate in the annual tradition of Trick-or-Treating on Embassy Row. If you’ve never been, it’s a great opportunity to sit extremely close to a stranger on the DuPont GUTS bus, meet students from your fellow DC Universities (“Oh… so you go to…GW?) and maybe even score some free shots of Smirnoff that the Russian Embassy ~supposedly~ hands out (they don’t).
But for those of you looking to spice it up and try something different this year, here are some of 4E’s alternative suggestions for places you should add to your Trick-or-Treating Route.
The Common Room on Any Floor of New South.
There is probably (possibly?) something edible in the refrigerator that you can add to your bag of goodies. Stop by and relive all those great Freshman year memories while you’re at it!
Any Corp Coffee Location. They probably won’t give you free coffee or pastries if you just go to the register and say Trick-or-Treat, but you can definitely still score some sweets by helping yourself to some of their delicious free packets of sugar and Splenda.
Brown House. Bang on the door until someone answers! Offer to help clean up the house and you’ll be sure to find some pieces of gum or the remains of an Epi Quesadilla that someone left on the floor from the party last weekend.
Your Professors’ Office Hours. If you pay a visit to your Professor and immediately start uncontrollably crying about how you failed your last midterm, there’s a chance they might try to calm you down by offering you whatever food they have lying around their office.
John Kerry’s House. Just go knock! The Secret Service agents will definitely not have a problem with this. Just be sure to have some light conversational topics on hand to chat about for when The Secretary of State opens the door to give you some candy, such as the 2004 election or the Iran Nuclear Deal.
We hope that you find these Trick-or-Treating alternatives helpful. Happy #Halloweekend from your fav blog!
Our favorite Georgetown professor and former Secretary of State is already quite the tweeter, but she’s outdone herself now. After comedian Conan O’Brien tweeted he’d be dressing as a “slutty Madeleine Albright,” Madeleine fired back. See the full Twitter “feud” below:
.@ConanOBrien I'm considering going as hunky Conan O'Brien – but that might be too far fetched.
