What to Do Weekly: 2/27 - 3/6

(Poster by Louis Roberts ‘22)

I could say that there’s nothing to do this week, but that would be a LIE! Here’s this week’s What to Do Weekly—enjoy!

1. Get your comic on. Chris Ware, American cartoonist of New Yorker fame, is coming to Skidmore courtesy of the Tang and you should get excited. As part of the Winter/Miller Lecture series, Chris will be on hand for a book signing at 5pm and talk at 6pm on Thursday, Feb. 28 in the Tang atrium and Payne room, respectively.

2. Go see the Blackbox. Opening night for Men on Boats, the upcoming theater production, is this Friday, March 1 with performances running through March 7. The play tells Jaclyn Backhaus’ original story with “performers who embody ANYTHING OTHER than our country’s most historically dominant group of people.” See them shake things up on sage this week and next!

3. Eat for a good cause. Look, I know there’s a food festival on nearly every one of these lists, but I can’t help that upstate New York has a thing for low-cost samples. This weekend’s indulgence is mac-n-cheese as Siena College hosts their 10th Annual Mac -n- Cheese Bowl to benefit the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. The event will be held at the Marcelle Athletic Complex (a.k.a. MAC—I can’t make this stuff up) in Albany on Sat., March 2, from 11am-2:30pm.

4. Hear live music Skidmore style. Lively Lucy’s is putting on a Skidmore band-only show at Falstaff’s this Thursday, Feb 28 at 8pm featuring three great acts (Kickball, Tiberius and Nu-Note, a nu band on campus you can read more about here!). There will be indie, R&B and some things in between, so come out for a good time.

5. Figure out your major. Yeah, this seems like a good idea. Good thing Exploremore, Skidmore’s two-week advising block, is still going on. Events are hosted daily by different departments so that students can best figure out what they’d like to pursue. Know what you want? Maybe you don’t! Don’t know what you want? Great! These panels are for you.
