Jared Mezzocchi's play "Poppa, God Bless" opens this week at the Historic Playmakers Theater. The play centers around Joe Quinn, a ninety year old man who discovers that he can use the internet and emails to relive the good memories of his past.

Memorial Hall promotes this weekends visit by Orchestre Révolutionnaire Romantique to UNC. The world renown orchestra will be performing Beethoven in a form similar to the way his music would have originally been performed. To promote this students from UNC passed out Beethoven themed stickers and pieces of a Beethoven face-cake. Students had the oppurtunity to take their picture with Beethoven (Jo Saberniak) as he ran around Memorial Hall handing out flyers and asking passerbys what decade it was.
