Nunc est bibendum

What's with the Latin, and the bust of the emperor at the top of this page, at least for those whose web browsers permit such frivolities? Why, today is the Ides of March, and we mourn (or celebrate) the 2,039th anniversary of the assassination of Julius Caesar.

And as for bibendum, or drinking . . . well, a "huge St. Paddy's bash" is announced for the Bombshelter pub today -- The Mahones play both day and evening shows.

Yes, happy St. Patrick's

The Laurel Room has its green-eyed special two days early, what with St. Patrick's falling on Sunday. From noon to 2 p.m. today, there are green beans with red peppers, peppercorn steaks and other good things, price $10.95 for all you can eat. Reservations: ext. 3196.

A short to-do list

People have been asking

. . . about the annual book sale sponsored by the local chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women. It's scheduled for April 12 (noon to 9 p.m.) and 13 (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) at, as always, Hilliard Hall of First United Church downtown. People who have books to donate can call 747-5854 or 746-5649.

A knight to remember

That's the theme of the Math Grad Ball, being held tomorrow night at Bingeman Park as the climactic event for final-year math students. Says Philip Hunter of the Math Graduation Committee:
It's a formal dinner, with a big dance afterwards. It's your way of saying "yeah, we finally graduated, dammit." . . . Anyone can go, from any faculty, and from any political persuasion (even communists!). Of course, you need to buy a ticket to go. . . . The Math Grad Ball, although it is a formal, isn't like a high school prom. It's more of a big get-together with all the people you've shared your joy (and bitter pain) throughout your university career. It's certainly not a cheezy high school dating game (you can go to Fed Hall for that).
No comment about the slam at Fed Hall. But have a good time tomorrow night, knights and ladies. Nunc est bibendum. ... Speaking of bibendum, the number for Peer Assistance Link Services (a Federation of Students service whose "awareness week" ends today) given here earlier this week was incorrect. The PALS numbers are 888-4860 and 1-800-704-7257.
