Maybe you’re planning to bury yourself in your books, or maybe you’re a cheapskate who’s just too darn stubborn to dish out the bucks to get to New Haven. Maybe you’re frantically avoiding the Yalie who broke up with you via Gchat. Whatever the case, you find yourself stuck on campus after the masses have departed for Harvard-Yale. What’s a straggler to do?
1. If you’re anxious to see some badass art:You’ve seen the MFA, HMNH, and [insert random acronym here]. But you haven’t seen culture until you’ve visited the Museum of Bad Art, or rather “MOBA: Art too bad to be ignored.” Located in the basement of Somerville Theater, the exhibit is perfectly situated for you can check out a movie while you’re at it.55 Davis Square, Friday, 5:30 p.m.-10:30 p.m, Weekends, 12:00 p.m.-10:30 p.m. Admission=your movie ticket. (Seriously.)
2. If you want to show your Crimson pride:You don’t follow football, but still want to show some school spirit. Unleash some stress and take a study break by watching men passionately whack pucks with sticks.Men’s Varsity Ice Hockey vs. Clarkson, Saturday, November 21, 7 p.m.
3. If you like drinking in the afternoon but don’t have a tailgate to attend:Who needs tailgates when you can take a tour of Samuel Adams Brewery? Play tourist, take in history, and sip some free beer while you’re at it (with ID, of course).30 Germania Street, Friday, 10:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m, Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Admission free but donations welcome.
4. If you’re that kid who already listens to Christmas music:Check out the Harvard-Radcliffe Chorus concert, Handel’s Messiah (Part 1: The Christmas Story). Aww. Don’t you love the holidays?Sanders Theater, Friday November 20, 7:30 pm, $20 per adult. $10 per student.
5. If you need a temporary escape from psets and papers:Take in the brisk fall air with a stroll along the Charles while you can still feel your toes. Sure, you may be that loner surrounded by touchy-feely couples, but an empty campus = me-time. Embrace it.Charles River, 24/7. (Except when it’s really, really, dark.)
