“Social Justice Coffehouse” 9:30 P.M. – 1:30 A.M., Commonground–“an exciting and dynamic aspect of the Tucker Foundation’s 50th anniversary celebration.” Right. Student performers will spend ten minutes apiece onstage and be compensated $100 for their trouble. It may not be social justice, but it sure beats a living wage.

“Kiss & Tell” 9:30 P.M., Poison Ivy (that empty room in the basement of Collis)–All three episodes of this student produced (?) program will be shown. Refreshments.

“SiNgLeD OUt!!” 7 P.M., Brace Commons–Should probably be avoided for the capitalization alone. “You could win a Super Fantabulously Amazing Date!!!!!” Good grief.

“Men’s Tennis v. Princeton” 3 P.M., Topliff Courts
