On Friday afternoon we attended the Human Gifts Registry Ceremony to thank those who made the ultimate donation to help further our education. Two of our classmates helped to specially honor them; Kevin played some wonderful Chopin and Jeanne gave a touching eulogy.
Last Friday night, Sehe, Yvonne and I went to see the Penn Symphony Orchestra’s last performance for the semester at Irvine Auditorium. (Free for Penn students, $5 for everyone else.) We were beyond impressed! They were absolutely amazing! They played some Verdi and Debussy (which brought me back some summer music history memories of having to listen to Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn). The University Choral Society also performed (they have a fantastic baritone.)
Since we finished class a little earlier, Yvonne and I headed to White Dog for some brunch. But brunch quickly became lunch once we saw the menu!
But the interior decoration steals the show! The entire restaurant is decorated with dogs.
We’re super lucky to have a Ben and Jerry’s right down the block, and Capo Giro which sells gelato is just a little further. But to get frozen yogurt is a bit more of a trek!
After Fling, there was a free food event outside Van Pelt Library that we heard about from Mark.
They had Cheese steaks (from Pat’s), veggie dogs, pizza and cupcakes.
They also had macarons from the Sugar Philly food Truck. The nutella one was amazing!
I honestly don’t know how to explain what Spring Fling is. It’s an excuse to party hard in Quad. It’s a conglomeration of different performances for two days. It’s where everyone designs punny tank tops about fling.
It’s also an excuse to eat deep fried oreos!
