FRIDAY! (finally)

Time to throw off the shackles of the week and have some rest and relaxation!  That’s what we’re hoping at least, though Sunday night probably won’t be too fun if we do that.  Oh well.  Forget the troubles of the week with these Friday events:


  • Anything that has ‘all you can eat’ in the title has us hooked already.  Head on down to Flavors of Southeast Asia, hosted by (appropriately enough) Smith’s own South East Asian Alliance.  You’ll find them in Unity House from 5:30 to 7 pm.  Tickets are $6 at the campus center or $7 at the door.


  • Check out this neat lecture “Growing and Preparing Bamboo for Basketry” by visiting artist Nancy Moore Bess, one of two craftsmen who created the bamboo sculptures for the Botanic Garden’s fall show on Chrysanthemums.  You’ll find it in the Campus Center Carroll Room at 7:00 pmFree for Smithies with ID!  (If you haven’t seen the show yet, you should definitely drop by sometime!  More information here)


  • Deborah Klimburg-Salter, a visiting prof at Wellesley with a hell of a lot of fancy titles from the University of Vienna, will be giving a talk titled “The Kabul National Museum of Afghanistan: Its Role in National Reconstruction“.  This will appeal to people obsessed with world events and art history nerds alike.  You’ll find her in Graham Hall, Hillyer at 4:30 pm.


  • Catch TGIWTF: Nuclear Dinosaur Edition at the Pearl Street Nightclub in Northampton this Friday.  Party all night (or, rather, party from 10:00 at night to 2:00 in the morning).  Admission is $10 for those of you who are 18+ and $6 for everyone who can drink legally.  Learn more here!


  • The REC Council is presenting Julie and Julia this Friday at 7:30 pm in Weinstein Auditorium.  Go for the scenes with Julia Child (Class of ’34) if nothing else!


  • You know, I had never heard of this man prior to all the fuss this week, and now I’m kind of embarrassed because he seems like an important fella.  Anywho, they’re celebrating the Rachmaninoff Centennial tomorrow with a lecture titled “Rachmaninoff: The Musician Behind the Brand Name” by Francis Crociata.  You’ll find it in the Neilson Browsing Room at 4:15 pm.
  • There’s also a concert celebrating the man later that night, at 8:00 pm in Sweeney Hall (Sage).  The Smith College Chamber Singers will be singing his Songs for Treble Voices, Opus 15.  Check it out!


  • Looking to start a business one day?  Head on down to Springfield to attend The Grinspoon Conference: The Art of the Start.   Just contact Women and Financial Independence at and they’ll make sure you get the $125 scholarship to attend the event… they’ll even provide you with transportation to Springfield!
