University of Rochester heralds in the epic day known as Dandelion Day. A tradition since the school's inception in 1850, it is a day of merriment and mirth. The school brings in rides and food vendors, sponsors dinners and events, and even has a dj. Or, in this case, Ok Go is playing on campus.
We also get shithouse drunk.
This last bulletin is important. It is the one day of the year where it's not just socially acceptable but required that you fill a travel mug with rum and coke and take a shower with it at 8:30 in the morning. Dandelion Day is solely dedicated to getting absolutely hammered. It is the last Saturday before finals so it's a rather welcome celebration, frankly. In the spirit of the festivities, I will also be getting drunk. But in a rather unique and slightly anti-social way. After the Case Race I have to attend (damn it, it's Chemical Engineers against Biomedical Engineers, our bane) I will go on a fabulous drinking derby of epic proportions. I really do have a lot of beverages to review before I leave and I can't take them home so I'm going to do constant reviews every time I pop open something new. All day. I'll post links on my Twitter and such with the hashtag #DDD (Devilish Drinking Derby) which is a ludicrous amount of D's and, after a few drinks, I may forget a few. You're welcome to belly up to the bar and join me in this liver-punishing extravaganza. Just don't drive.
Also, you should check out this month's edition of Mutineer Magazine. Might be a familiar name or some-such in the "Happenings" section.
