What Does Your Drunk Food Say About You?

After a night of drinking, we all crave that midnight, or rather, early morning snack. What does you go-to drunk munchie say about you? Let’s find out.

1. Pizza

You are a lazy, yet consistent, drunk eater. You attack a slice of street pizza head on, no knife or fork; just you and your cheesy mess. Or maybe you call your local pizza place for delivery. This place knows the sound of your voice and probably already has your order programmed. You think you’re friends with these guys, but don’t be fooled. Remember, Tony the Pizza Guy just wants your money, not your friendship.

2. Wrap/Sandwich/Burrito/Gyro

You are a sophisticated drunk. You know where the OPEN late night food is and you guide all your friends to its deliciousness. You have also mastered the art of eating with both hands while intoxicated. Sometimes you may even advance to the next level: eating and walking while intoxicated.

3. Fries 

You’re a sharer. Maybe not by choice, but certainly by your order. When you ordered fries you agreed to the silent promise to allow everyone “just one fry.” Ordering fries comes with a lot of positives too. You often escape the feeding frenzy cleaner than you were before and probably with new friends!

4. Cereal 

You have either made the responsible decision to cut back on drunk food spending, cut back on your waistline, or your actually trying to go to bed before 1 AM. We all know that drunk food adds up in dollar signs, calories or an extra hour to your night out. Whether you’re saving money, avoiding greasy late night food or trying to get some shut eye, you’re taking the Drunk High Road. Congrats!

5. Healthy Food 

Get out! Healthy food doesn’t even count. Did you even go out? Or did you just have a glass of wine? Either way, you have enough wits and self-control to make yourself a healthy late night snack like carrots and hummus. Your friends may give you the stink eye when you decide to head home and eat an apple, instead of stumbling to that late night diner. However, you’re the real winner as you will probably wake up the next day with only a mild headache and a healthy stomach.

#WasteHisTime2016

Banner - Waste Time

If you have WiFi in that rock you’ve been living under for the last few weeks, you’ve probably seen this hashtag trending on Twitter: #WasteHisTime2016. Basically girls (and probably guys because, equality) are tweeting ways that they waste guys’ time. Hopefully they don’t do this on a regular basis — because that’s mean. To hop on the bandwagon, we at 4E have come up with some of our own ways to waste someone’s time:

Make my brother into a diehard Georgetown Basketball fan. #WasteHisTime2016

Tell a drunken hookup to take the elevator to the fifth floor of Copley (when you live somewhere else). #WasteHisTime2016

Take someone on a first date to Leo’s. #WasteHisTime2016

Crack jokes about the preppy guy style that’s ubiquitous on Georgetown’s campus. #WasteHisTime2016

Debate Jack DeGioia on his hover board ban. #WasteHisTime2016

Train Jack the Bulldog to hover board across the Verizon Center. #WasteHisTime2016

Keep talented freshman center Jessie Govan on the bench. #WasteHisTime2016

Make a friend listen to how busy you are all the time because evidently no one else is ever busy. Ever. It’s just you. #WasteHisTime2016

Email your study buddy: “Want to trade study guides?” Then, don’t return the favor. #WasteHisTime2016

Ask your professor to explain something that he literally just explained. #WasteHisTime2016

Ask a question in the last 0.005 seconds of class so everyone has to stay. #WasteHisTime2016

Repeatedly ask your dog “Who’s a good boy?” but never tell him the answer. #WasteHisTime2016

Take your visiting long distance boyfriend to Piano Bar. #WasteHisTime2016

Take a visiting friend who’s in a frat at a state school to a Georgetown Party. #WasteHisTime2016

Brag to your bros back home — who all go to football schools — about how cool Georgetown Day is. #WasteHisTime2016

Make him watch Season 4 of Arrested Development (sorry). #WasteHisTime2016

 

Twitter is fun but tormenting people is terrible. Be careful!

Seminars We Want at Georgetown

college2College can be a tough adjustment for everyone from prep school scholars to public school kids. The transition would be a lot easier if Georgetown or university student groups offered a few 90-minute seminars (optional, of course) to better prepare students for everything from Google Docs to dating. Here are a few suggestions:

How to Spot a F**kboy
Why: The unsuspecting freshman girl often falls for them at house parties early in the first semester. Sometimes a post-party hookup turns into three months of torture over unrequited love.
How: Upperclassmen girls can show profiles of boys and point out their negative traits (good at saving Snapchats, very “experienced,” phone only seems to work after 2 a.m. on Saturday nights) so young girls know what to avoid.

How to Use Blackboard/My Access/Google Drive
Why: Has anyone found any of these sources particularly user-friendly?
How: Step-by-step instruction on how to do everything.

How to Get Over Your High School Ex
Why: Everyone has that one friend who is always either hopping on a train to Alabama to see their former sweetheart or crying in the dorm because that special someone posted a picture with a new crush.
How: Show profiles of attractive and successful Georgetown students to show kids that there are other fish in the sea and that our sea happens to be better than most.

How to Public Transport
Why: The metro is easy enough, but the bus system is a mystery. When someone says G2, D2 or D6 I think they’re talking about the robot from Star Wars or the floors in the saddest freshman dorm. Also, what is “The Circulator”?
How: Show us the website, give us a map with the stops and list the most efficient path to reach major locations around the city.

How to Drink Without Blacking Out
Why: Everyone made jokes about the online alcohol awareness course we had to complete freshman fall, but seeing how much alcohol we were actually drinking was eye opening.
How: Throw a “controlled” party where kids are allowed to drink until they black out, as long as they keep track of how much they’ve consumed. Each student will know his or her absolute limit and hopefully will consume under this limit the rest of the year.

How to Cheer Aggressively at Sporting Events
Why: Sometimes the crowd at the Verizon Center gets rowdy. We need to put those opposing fans in their place (AKA the bus back to Philly).
How: Get dirt on all of our Big East Rivals. Learn what other fans say at us, and teach students the appropriate responses. One example: Villanova fans shout, “What’s a Hoya?” Student section responds, “Your future employa.”

Power Ranking of Drunk Epi Food

tumblr_static_junk_food_wallpaper_by_yume_fran-d31yapsWe’ve all been there: a pregame, two frat parties and a post game later, the drunkenness is high but the nausea is even higher. We at 4E have compiled a list of foods that have saved our lives at Epi on multiple occasions.

1. Quesadillas – Obviously a classic.

2. Onion Rings – Great for when you’re on a budget.

3. John Thompson – With corned beef, coleslaw and Russian dressing, this sandwich sops up alcohol like a shamwow.

4. Cool Ranch Doritos – Apparently they sell them there… who knew?!

5. Burger a la Georgetown – Order it with double veggie and feta cheese if you’re a guilty eater.
6. Smoking hot brisket – Did that smoking hot girl at the party ignore you? This sandwich definitely won’t do the same.

Sometimes, you do not have the mental capacity to pick a specific/complicated food (probably from all that studying). As one Epi-goer explained, “In real life, drunk me kind of just picks randomly off the menu.”

Here are the best of the random choices:

1. BBQ chicken pizza – You probably should get a whole pizza and maybe bring a friend along.

2. BLT – $3.25 and it’s greater than great.

3. BLT with avocado – Including tax it’s only $5.17. What a deal.

4. Other people’s fries – The move, always. Free food is always better than food you pay for.

While you should have so much fun at all the parties and stuff, try to keep yourself together enough to try these favorites from Epi.

*Remember that it’s good to eat and drink while drinking to avoid the dreaded ~hangover~
**Also remember the legal drinking age in the U.S. is 18 21

Drink the District: Beer Edition

If there’s one thing that we truly love here at 4E, it’s the phrase “unlimited beer tasting.” Lucky for us, Drink the District is hosting an event that is just that.

On July 28, Drink the District: Beer Edition will take place in Mount Vernon Triangle. Now usually when we hear about events like this, we end up bummed because it costs so much. Not this time! Tickets only cost $30, and they grant you access to unlimited tastings of over 40 craft beers from breweries like Flying Dog, Magic Hat, New Belgium and more. Check out who else will be in attendance here.

You can either day drink and head to the noon-4 session or make it your pregame at the 5-9 session. There will also be plenty of food trucks in attendance (though, sadly, not included in the ticket price). Everyone’s favorite grilled cheese truck, Big Cheese, as well as a pizza truck, tapas truck, Vietnamese truck, and a few different dessert trucks.

Mount Vernon Triangle is a pretty cool area, a short walk from either the Mt. Vernon Square/Convention Center or Gallery Place/Chinatown metro stops. After the event is over, there are plenty of bars and restaurants in Mount Vernon Square and Chinatown if you’re not ready to head back to Georgetown.

Drink the District is a great way to break out of the Georgetown Bubble for a day while learning about beers that aren’t Natty. Because drinking Natty is frowned upon in the real world (I know, it’s sad).

Bonus points: one of the producers and co-creators of Drink the District, John Leader,  is a recent Georgetown grad! Supporting a fellow Hoya while getting drunk on fancy beer — what could be better?
