Rock Paresky

Below the break is an e-mail about partying in Paresky this week-end. Kudos to all involved. If you go, tell us about it! If the College could turn Paresky into a partying place, with dancing and entertainment every Friday and Saturday, it would radically alter (in a good way!) the social life of the College. Here’s hoping.

Hey Spencer-ites!

This First Fridays is going to be fundamentally different. It will be a
collaboration between several different campus groups including the
Neighborhoods, ACE, and Sophomore Council, and it will take place in the
Paresky Center!

There will be different events on each floor:

The basement will have jazz music from 9-11, followed by free salsa dancing
lessons with Ritmo Latino until 1am!

The main floor will have music and dancing going all night.

The mezzanine will have a Casino Night, with some campus celebrity dealers
at the Texas Hold ‘Em tables. There will be catered food and beverages.

So come out this Friday and get ready to Rock the Paresky Center!

Williams College sanitized jazz and gambling may be cute but are jazz and gambling in name only.

Williams has had some jazz affcienados over the years. Noted music writer Tommy Piazza comes to mind.

My buddies and I made regular roadtrips for jazz shows during college: Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Weather Report, Keith Jarrett, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc.

What was the name of the jazz club in Boston? Paul’s Mall?

Oops, sorry. Don’t want to get caught up in any anonymous poster crossfire. The previous post was me.

Although this sounds pretty sweet, future publicity efforts should keep in mind this axiom of youth:

When explicitly instructed to “get ready to rock,” anyone under the age of 40 will remain decidedly unready.

Anyone who needs to be told “get ready to rock” can’t and won’t.

Heh, heh, heh….

I’ll bet that Morty will be ready to rock when he sees the condition of his new Paresky pride and joy after an all-campus bash.
