If you didn’t already know, The Tombs is reopening tomorrow – September 6 – after a three month renovation. While 4E doesn’t want to reveal all that is changing (you’ll have to see for yourself), we do have the scoop on some of the new menu and drink deals rolling out this fall.
While some Tombs staples, like the Chicken #1, will remain, new dishes include Brussels sprout salad (yum) and a fried chicken sandwich.
Finally, for the moment you have all been waiting for … THE DRINK DEALS!!!
Due to the hard work and sleuthing of The Hoya’s news section, 4E has learned that The Tombs will be “implementing” cheaper prices for some of its libations. Did you read that? Yeah, that’s right, cheaper PRICES!
Several types of beer will be lowered in price, including a locally brewed beer called DC Brau. In addition, The Tombs will be introducing new drink specials, like $3 bourbon on Monday nights and $3 vodka on Wednesday nights.
Sorry, we didn’t give you every insider secret about the ~new~ Tombs, but we are pretty darn excited for its return. So, please show your school some pride and go to the reopening of this wonderful establishment steeped in Georgetown tradition… (and some questionable Hoya dance moves).

As August approaches, 4E reached out to some interning Hoyas to see how everyone’s summer has been going. What we found terrified us. Turns out that the internships that we slaved all year round to earn came with a few… quirks.
Read all about our favorite intern horror stories below!

- Just like in the middle school cafeteria, your seating choice may make or break you.
“The guy who sits at the desk behind me clips his nails once a week. I have to put headphones in to drown out the noise.”
- Hard Truth of Growing Up: Sometimes, mom won’t be right.
“On my first day at my internship, my mom convinced me to not bring lunch because ‘Everyone will go out together!’ So I didn’t. I ended up sitting in a secluded room separate from the group of 25 interns. I decided to be brave and strolled right in there. Being my friendly self, I asked if anyone wanted to grab lunch. There was no response – not even a ‘Maybe tomorrow.’ Felt like a f****** moron.”
- The fashion world was, in fact, accurately depicted in “The Devil Wears Prada.”
“My email is “intern1″ because in fashion, you don’t get a name.”
- When you’re an intern, you are everyone’s last priority.
“One day, both of my bosses didn’t show up until 3 p.m. because they went to a meeting. This would have been fine, except that they didn’t tell me. I did nothing for six hours.”
- Intensive labor is NOT out of the question.
“One of my jobs is to ensure that there is a pitcher of lemon water on my boss’ desk every morning. I cut and peel the lemons myself. He only accepts fresh squeezed.”
- You better ~lose yourself~
“Someone in my office who I don’t know just calls me “Intern”. When I finally met him, I accidentally said “Hi, I’m Intern” instead of my name.”
- Not everyone is, ahem, politically correct.
“I [a strong independent woman] got a “You can’t be in finance! You must be on the marketing team!” last week. I can’t decide if that’s a compliment, sexual harassment or gender discrimination.”
- And finally, no one is safe from the refrigerator rascals of the world.
“Someone ate my lunch last week. I was very sad.”
We all know what happened next…
We hope the rest of you have much better internship stories to tell this fall!
