A Guide To Scamming the Most Out of Free Food This GAAP Weekend

Welcome to Georgetown, new Hoyas! Your friends at 4E are so excited to meet you next year! Before you  arrive, hopefully you’re going to GAAP Weekend so you can celebrate and learn more about us, regular ole Hoyas. If you are, here’s how to scam the most out of free food this GAAP Weekend.

8:30 AM on Friday – Go to St. Mary’s for breakfast. They without a doubt have the best spread. From fresh fruit to small pieces of banana bread, the NHS (School of Nursing and Health Studies for the newbies) has too much food and not enough people to share it with.

1:45 PM on Friday – For those who want to be extra ~cultured~ be sure to hit up the SFS for some Qdoba. However, if you’re not about that, then go to the MSB. If you have to venture into ~The Snake Den~ for anything, it might as well be good food from a fancy restaurant.

6:00 PM on Friday – Starving after Convocation and can’t wait the 30 minutes it will probably take to walk to Tombs and get food? Walk for 1 minute instead from Healy to the ICC for the Multicultural Reception! It might will definitely be the best food you’ve had all day!

9:00 AM on Saturday – You could go to Leo’s for breakfast, and it will probably  definitely be the best Leo’s you’ll have in your Georgetown career, or you could knock on an unsuspecting upperclassmen’s Vil A door and beg food from them. No doubt they’ll take pity on you and attempt to give you something better (choose the door wisely).

12:00 PM on Saturday – Want free food AND clothing? Come to Red Square so that clubs can inevitably try to bribe you to join once you get here! The free swag and food ranging from Hershey’s Kisses to slices of pizza will be worth it. I promise.

Your friends at 4E sincerely hope that this list has helped you to scam the most food out of your GAAP Weekend and make it one you’ll never forget!

How to Concert Successfully: A Guide to Concert Etiquette

How to Concert

We here at 4E are constantly trying out fun activities that take us off campus and a good concert is no exception. For those of you who frequent concerts or music festival venues, you can probably relate to me on this one. For those of you who do not, please listen up because there are some rules to follow when going to see your fave band live.

Drink responsibly: Do not be that person that drinks way too much and is spastically trying to navigate the floor. You will spill your $7 beer on someone (Seven dollars wasted!) and they will most likely get very angry. If you are 21 and over and do decide to drink, please pace yourself. You do not want to be that person that distracts everyone from the beautiful people up on stage.

Don’t be this guy. You will not look this adorable.

This is not a photo shoot: If you didn’t post about it on all social media sites, did it really happen? The answer is yes. It’s okay to take a few quality pics or to add a video for your Snapchat story to alert your friends that you got this close to whoever, but do not have your phone out the entire time. I want to be able to see the stage, not my favorite guitarist on your tiny IPhone screen.

Limit the PDA: Do not be that couple that is having an intense dance floor make-out sesh instead of listening to the music. You came to hear the genius lyricism of an artist, not to publicly suck each other’s faces off.

Mastering the art of crowd surfing: Usually only done at large music festivals, crowd surfing is a move where timing is everything. So let’s imagine this situation: The show is packed and you are covered in everyone else’s sweat, but you don’t care. The guy in front of you gets lifted up by his friends and is floating throughout the crowd, like royalty. He looks like he is having the best time of his life and he probably is, so you decide that you’re next. Be cautious because you don’t want to be that person who falls flat on their a**. The key is to make sure there are some strong-looking guys around you and that the crowd is energetic. You really don’t want to mess this one up.

Don’t wander: Have you ever been to a concert and been shoved by that huge guy pushing his way to the front, then 15 minutes later being pushed by him again because he’s just not feeling the set? Well, maybe you haven’t, but being shoved around in an already over-capacitated space is no bueno. Don’t be that person who constantly walks around in order to get the best spot. Please, just relax, chill and enjoy the show.

Well there you have it, your guide on the do’s and don’ts of concert-going. To you concert professionals reading this, I’m sure you feel my pain and to you amateurs, take note and enjoy!
