Crash a Formal

It's not hard sneaking into a formal—all you have to do is draw some X's on your hands and say you're with the band. It's once you're inside that things get difficult.

There is no easy answer to these questions; they're rhetorical. What's more, formals are not easy; they are an awkward mix of 90's hits and oversized camping tents. But they can be fun, and luckily I have some tips for correctly crashing a formal.

Spring brings with it the colorful yet expensive lawn chairs, round two of midterms and exams, and the frequent sighting of pedicabs. A mix of bicycle and chariot, pedicabs are an alternative way to tour or travel through the Cambridge and Boston landscape. They typically seat two people. They are clean, green, and follow a ‘Pay as you please’ scheme. Where can you go with a pedicab? Here are just a few ideas.
