This weekend presents yet another opportunity to get off-campus. Already feel like you’ve been here forever? Enjoy a change of scenery in Philly and other areas surrounding Swarthmore. For the more adventurous (who own a car or have access to one), go canoeing, kayaking, tubing, or rafting before the weather gets too cold. To see their hilarious motto and for more details, check out www.rivercountry.net.
If you’re looking for a more quiet scene, like dinner and a movie, try going to the aptly named “Friday Saturday Sunday” restaurant in Philly (hint: their lunch prices are only half of their dinner prices). Go to http://www.frisatsun.com for more information.
Finish off your outing with a movie at one of the Ritz movie theaters in Philly, where you can see a movie that combines documentary, animated, and narrative film styles called “What the Bleep Do We Know” (http://www.ritzfilmbill.com/showtimes/index.php?theater_id1). Enjoy your weekend!
