The Weekender

It's the freakin' weekend! Now presenting: shit to do!



Net night, at the pav: Right friggin' now, go play!

The musical "Sweet Charity" at 8 p.m. at the Tomlinson Theater. Time's running out for this one, final weekend. $10 with your TU ID.

Men's Ice Hockey vs. The College of New Shitty. 8:30 at the Flyers skate zone in NE philly. Go support your ice hockey team as they lay the beat down on those nawth jawzy dudes.

Off campus: Terror behind the walls starts up tonight at the Eastern State Penitentiary. Tickets start at $20. Wasn't that scary in years past, but who knows, maybe they stepped up their game?


"Pinkout" Temple football game vs. Ball State. Lincoln Financial Field, 1 p.m. Ya ya Temple football broke our hearts by losing to 'Nova, but they're going for their first winning record in 19 years tomorrow against 0-5 Ball State. Plus, portions of the ticket sales go to fighting breast cancer. Plus, the first 5,000 fans get little noise maker thingies. Plus you get to wear pink without looking like an idiot. Cool?

OR you can go learn about bees at Ambler at the first annual Southeastern Pennsylvania Honey Bee symposium. You know you wanna go. Here's to hoping irony makes an appearance and at least one person gets stung.

Off-campus: Not an overly loaded Saturday, but you've got the Mars Volta at the TLA, the Flyers against those Mighty Ducks of Anaheim at the Wachovia Center @ 7, and of course the Phils taking on the Rockies, for which you will probably want to watch with a drink on the rocks. No Coors this weekend people, that's bad karma.

In case you have too much fun at the bee fest and end up staying the night at Ambler, might wanna catch women's soccer vs. Duquesne at the Ambler sports complex @ 1.

If you really want to see "Sweet Charity," Sunday at 2 p.m. is your last chance, so go!

That, or tailgate the 1 p.m. Eagles game vs. those god awful Tampa Bay Buckaroos.

Video game nerds, do not miss this shindig at the Kimmel Center on Sunday at 3:00. Live performances of sound tracks, such as Final Fantasy and Halo. People getting called on stage to do live battles with other gamers. Live actors doing god knows what. Mario. Ya, totally worth the $35-60 a ticket for true fans.

Also, check out the Swap-O-Rama on Lombard street from 12-5 if you've got some old duds you're looking to swap. Hundreds of people show up with the clothing they don't want anymore and swap/trade/barter/whatever ya call it with everyone else, plus get tips on how to revitalize old stuff. Hooray for doing cool stuff.

That's all, enjoy your weekend everyone and be safe!
