If you haven’t figured it out from the number of campaign posters in your facebook newsfeed, GUSA election season is officially upon us. The vice presidential debate is tonight at 9 p.m. in White-Gravenor 201, and following the smash success of last year’s GUSA drinking game, we here at 4E have some tips for those of you who plan on being in attendance (and are over 21 of course!) this evening. For those who don’t want to make the trek to White-Gravenor, we hear GUTV will be live-streaming it.

Ideas for another rule? Suggest them in our comments section! And don’t worry, 4E will have you covered with a new set of rules for the presidential debate Monday.

Drink once if:

  • Someone mispronounces Kohnert-Yount
  • The candidates don’t know there’s a basketball game on tonight

A candidate mentions:

  • Funding
  • Vans
  • Transparency
  • Jesuit values
  • “Your Georgetown”

  • “GUSA outsider”
  • “GUSA insider”

Casual Thursdays: Warming From The Inside

Screen Shot 2013-01-24 at 1.01.05 AM

We hate to break it to you, everyone, but the Inauguration has ended. The mania has subsided and the fever has ended — except for our Beyoncé fever, which will carry on “until the end of time.” (Ha, see what we did there? We love you, B.) Now, all that’s left to do is celebrate the simple, serene beauty of the winter season. This cold weather took all of us by surprise, and you, at any point, see fellow students sprinting from building to building as they complain about their frozen fingers and ears. Because the Hilltop has experienced its first snowfall (read: dusting), this Casual Thursday is here to help you sit back, relax and celebrate all things snowy. Warm up by your bed with the Hot Toddy, the perfect winter companion, and play the Social Media Snowy Drinking Game:

The Hot Toddy:

  • 1 ounce brandy, whiskey, or rum
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tea bag
  1. Coat the bottom of a mug or an Irish coffee glass with honey.
  2. Add the liquor and the juice of the lemon quarter.
  3. On the side, heat water in a tea kettle and add the tea bag to make hot tea.
  4. Pour the steaming tea into the glass and stir.

The Social Media Snowy Drinking Game:

Celebrate people’s ridiculous reactions to winter precipitation with this snarky social media drinking game!

Go on Facebook or Twitter and slowly scroll down your News Feed/Twitter Feed.

Take a sip every time …

-A status/tweet references “cold”

-A status/tweet references “winter”

-Someone has posted a picture of himself/herself in the snow

 

Take a big gulp every time…:

-Someone makes a really excited over-hyper status/tweet about snow. (e.g. “I LOVE SNOOOWWWWW! )

-Someone makes a really miserable, cranky, aggressive status/tweet about hating snow/winter. (e.g. “I HATE WINTER. SNOW IS ICKY.”)

 

 Take a shot every time…:

-Someone makes a really miserable, cranky, aggressive status/tweet about being annoyed by other people’s statuses/tweets about snow.

 

Finish your drink every time…:

-Some Captain Obvious (in real life) energetically points outside and exclaims, “It’s Snowing!”

4E Drinking Games: VP Debate Edition

The vice presidency is one of the strangest offices in politics. The vast majority of the 47 men (yes, they’ve all been men) who have held the office have done, well, nothing. It’s a mostly ceremonial position, discussed extensively during election season and largely forgotten afterward.

Unless, of course, a president dies.

This grave hypothetical makes the VP candidate a vital component of any presidential ticket. This year, Democratic incumbent Joe Biden faces off with Republican challenger Paul Ryan. It’s seasoned foreign policy wonk against up-and-coming budget hawk; lovable loudmouth against pretty-boy pragmatist; your crazy great-uncle against your high school quarterback. While neither candidate provides the getcha-popcorn-ready unpredictability of 2008 Republican candidate Sarah Palin, tonight’s TV special should bring plenty of high-quality entertainment.

But to our readers of legal drinking age who need a little extra kick in your debate-viewing experience — have no fear! Our official unofficial vice-presidential debate drinking game is after the jump.

Casual Thursday: I Am Batman

Tonight’s a special night that we’ve been waiting all summer for—the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises. So, in honor of everyone’s favorite caped crusader, today’s Casual Thursday is going to get a little batty.

The internet is full of batman-themed cocktails. Unfortunately, most of them are on a Bruce Wayne level of fanciness, and require ingredients like Crème de Violette (although those recipes are paired with a few college staples, Andre and Burnett’s, in their tutorials). If you’re feeling up the challenge, go ahead and attempt those drinks, and let us know how it goes! But we have something a little easier (but just as delicious) in mind.

Georgetown Forever: A Drinking Game

We received this submission from an anonymous senior (whoever you are, we love you), and thought it was too good to pass up. So as finals season starts to wrap up, take a look at this game and decide whether you want to gamble your liver on it. May the odds be ever in your favor, Class of 2012.

Georgetown Forever: The Drinking Game for soon-to-be Georgetown Graduates

Our time on the Hilltop is drawing to a close and like many of my fellow seniors, I’m reflecting on my time at Georgetown, which has included many celebrations from Homecoming to Georgetown Day. While I will be moving into adulthood and plan on taking the spirit of Georgetown with me, I won’t be able to dedicate my Tuesday… and Wednesday… and Thursday nights to shameless behavior at the Tombs. With a bit of creativity, I’ve decided that graduation calls for a moment to toast to our time at Georgetown. Hoya Saxa and Georgetown Forever!

This game is called “Georgetown Forever” and it is not for the weak of heart or those with a low alcohol tolerance. The rules of the game are simple and it starts from the end of your last final and continues until you walk across the stage to shake John DeGioia’s hand and show your parents what they got for a $220,000 investment.

Basic rules:
1. Start the game on the day of your last final and end the game when you graduate. DON’T drink everything one the same day… this is 120+ shots Hoyas, so pace yourself!
2. Count every credit that you have taken, including summer school. Transfers must count the other credits they took at another college.
3. Get an official copy of your transcript if you can (it’s the least that Georgetown can do for all that tuition money) and make a shopping list. Its study day so study up on what you will need.
4. The higher rules outrank the lower ones, for example if the credit was in your major that would outrank a credit for in the school it was taught.
5. Each credit only gets one shot. If a credit was in your major and in the College, don’t double count the shots! We’re not looking to give GERMS more practice during Senior Week then they had all four years of your life in college… you do want to walk and get that diploma, right?
6. If you do the shots in the order of the classes which you took, then you get bonus points. If you took “Problem of God” freshman year and your thesis class senior year, then drink in that order.
