It’s finals season for universities all over the country, and people are looking for ways to procrastinate. The 4E staff has collaborated to offer you a very Hilltop-specific method of getting nothing done for a few minutes. Share and enjoy!
In case you haven’t heard, one of the best places to get your fish fix lies just minutes from campus at Luke’s Lobster! The cozy, New England stylized restaurant first opened its doors in October 2009 after Georgetown alum Luke Holden (MSB’07), saw a need for some fresh lobster, crab, and shrimp rolls at a great price (cue mouth watering).
Hailing from Maine, the fishiest state on the East coast, Luke knew the secret to crafting the perfect roll, successfully opening up restaurants in New York City with the help of his dad Jeff and business partner Ben Coffin. The fish was such a hit that restaurant goers began to start referring to themselves as “Lobsta Mobstas.” Take that, Tony Soprano.
After the major success in the Big Apple, Luke decided to return to his college roots and give Georgetown another eatery. The lobster rolls at Luke’s are served Maine style: “the seafood is served chilled on a toasted split-top bun with just a bit of mayo, a drizzle of lemon butter and a dash of our secret spices.”
To make things even better, Luke’s will now be hosting Student Days every Tuesday. On Student Days, Hoyas will automatically receive a 10% discount all.day.long. But wait, there’s more. To kick off the Student Days, Luke is giving all Georgetown students a 30% discount TODAY so get your behinds over there (1211 Potomac Street NW) and get some great food!!!
Now that you’re hooked, BRING IN THE DANCING LOBSTAS!
If you want to fit in at Georgetown, you have to speak the language. And no, I’m not talking about Arabic or Spanish or Chinese — I’m talking about acronyms. So much more than collections of letters, they’re more like a way of life.
I’m talking more than the standard OMG, LOL here. From schools to clubs to buildings, our campus is full of acronyms. Some of them are fairly straightforward, like NSO, VCE and GUSA. While the B in MSB can stand for either “Business” or “Bros,” either way it wouldn’t be too hard for an outsider to figure out what you were talking about. ICC is another one of these. Although, since it’s the Bunn Intercultural Center, shouldn’t we refer to this building the BIC? A question for the ages.
But then we have a crop of more confusing acronyms. GUASFCU? The pronunciations of our dear credit union’s acronym vary. Some give it a hard C, while others say it with a Ch sound. And some people say the GUA- then resort to mumbling incoherent syllables. And since when does GUGS rhyme with jugs? There’s some linguistic trickery going on there.
