Weekend Warriors: May 31-June 1


Now that you’ve completed your first few days of SBI you may find yourself in search of a way to kick back and relax this weekend. This weekend is also a fantastic opportunity to get to know the people you’ll be living and working with this summer, so grab a few new friends and do something fun! Here are two suggestions, courtesy of uwishunu.com and mainlinetoday.com

The Roots Picnic will be held Saturday at Festival Pier, Penn’s Landing. The festival is headlined by The Roots and will include Snoop Dog, Emily Wells, and Electric Wire Hustle. As of this posting, tickets are still available at $64, and can be ordered online at http://www.ticketmaster.com/the-roots-philadelphia-pennsylvania-05-31-2014/event/02004C63BE198A01

If you’re looking for something closer to campus, consider a Sunday screening of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The London National Theater’s rendition of Mark Haddon’s acclaimed novel. Both funny and poignant, the play tells the story of a teenage math genius who, by investigating the death of his neighbor’s dog, finds out more than he had ever bargained for. The screening starts at 1:00 PM Sunday at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute (824 West Lancaster Avenue, only 1.5 miles from Villanova’s campus). Admission is $10 with a student ID, $20 without. http://www.brynmawrfilm.org/films/?id=1049
