That’s right – tomorrow, from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm, Otto Pizza is giving out a free slice of pizza to anyone who signs up for their email list. And the best part? Otto offers really unique, delicious (and maybe a little weird) pizza toppings, such as butternut squash, ricotta cheese, and cranberries, or mashed potatoes, bacon, and scallions. For those of you who’ve been too busy staring at your phones to notice any changes in the Square recently, Otto is located in Finagle A Bagel’s old post.
Looks like Noch’s just might have some competition.

UPDATE! (May 6th): The Klondike Bars will be served on Friday, May 7th, from 2pm to 3pm instead. Reason: shitty Cambridge weather, as always.
Well, not really. But these food deals will certainly lessen the pain!
- ON CAMPUS -
Brought to us by the Common Spaces Committee. Odd name? Maybe. But it’s still free food!
Wednesday: KETTLE CORN from 12:30pm-3:00pm outside Lehman Hall (the ART is also presenting a preview of a new play, Johnny Baseball, at 12:30pm). It’s like killing two birds with one stone! You can pretend to look artsy while devouring your free corn.
Thursday: KLONDIKE BARS from 2:00pm-3:00pm at the Gazebo outside Grays Hall. Bonus: A prime view of the colorful chairs and newly installed Wetu nearby in the Old Yard.
- OFF CAMPUS -
Between May 7 and May 16, head over to any Starbucks store between 3 and 5 p.m. and get a Frappuccino blended beverage at half price!
Happy eating and drinking! Just don’t put the blame on us after you step on that weighing scale.

Enough to get even Sarah excited.
We swear it’s not a myth! The seminar, that is.
In addition to offering free “vagina” cupcakes, hundreds of dollars-worth of sextoy giveaways, and free condoms/lube/dental dam the Radcliffe Union of Students are holding a contest. That’s right, a contest!
The sports team or entryway with the most members present (by number and percentage) will win one of TWO, count ‘em, TWO cakes!
Spice up your sexlife, eat free food, maybe giggle at a slideshow or two (but in a sex-positive way). Empower you and your fellow “Vagina Warriors,” bring your man, bring your woman, bring whoever!
(note: The Voice will be there AND blogging the event for those who cannot make it)

Today, Nels Cline and John Stirratt, two members of Wilco, came to the Advocate for some open discussion and free Boloco burritos. The two were very honest in answering students’ questions about songwriting, tour life, favorite venues, recording, and their own personal lives. Cline spoke of the difficulty of playing music as your field of work, citing the challenges of having a personal life with time for experience, romance, and introspection. Stirratt, the only remaining original member of the band apart from Jeff Tweedy, echoed Cline’s thoughts, saying there is a point where you realize “a hobby has taken over your life.”
They also talked about music in a broad sense, from songwriting to recording. On the issue of recorded music and the fall of the record in today’s age of digital music and single song downloads, Cline remarked that “recording is a blip on the time line of centuries and centuries of music.” Live music has been around far longer than the first recording devices and the importance of music lies in the spontaneity of live music. As a tip to songwriters yearning to create something new and original, he advised students not to worry too much. He said that you will give music its own unique twist, even if it shares a chord progression with hundreds of other songs. The two were happy to answer all questions thrown their way. Wilco plays tomorrow night at the Orpheum in Boston.

Today, at Boloco, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., they’re giving away Mini and Small Burritos, Bowls, Wraps and Salads. The large burritos are only a dollar. Take advantage of the deals. We college students love our free food, as evidenced by the lines yesterday at Ben and Jerry’s and Chipotle (oh, but you know it was worth the wait).
Harvard Square Homeless Center will be at Boloco asking for donations. Contribute whatever you can. It is a great organization and you are getting free food for the second day in a row after all.
You’re welcome for all the updates on free food. We wouldn’t want you to miss out.

When I realized what today was, my heart skipped a beat. NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY aka the day IHOP gives away a free short stack (3 pancakes) to anyone that enters their doors. Could it possibly be true? Could fluffy and syrupy goodness be mine for free? And to top it all off could I help a good cause in the process of feasting?
My roommate and I braved the bitter cold with thoughts of pancake and batter dancing in our heads. This year, IHOP picked the Children’s Miracle Network to support. So, after placing our pancake order we made a small donation to help save some of the millions of kids overcome with illness. This act makes us feel better about shoveling food into our mouth, after having already eaten a rather large dinner.
But with a wait of over an hour and being assigned ridiculous names (we were “Brad Pitt party of two”), the luke-warm, undercooked pancakes weren’t worth it. So I’m sorry, but even with the philanthropic goals in mind, IHOP’s free Pancake Day has nothing on Denny’s free grandslams (mmmm bacon bacon bacon).

Probably doesn't look this classy.
Today is Day One of the UC’s “Reading Period Giveaways.” Here’s what they’re giving away today:
- Free backrubs in Ticknor Lounge today from 1-3pm.
- Free hot cider in Greenhouse Cafe from 6-7pm.
Noice is a fan of hot cider, so we think this is pretty cool. Follow the UC’s blog, UC Juicy, for updates on what else they’re giving away this week! (We hope it’s something along the lines of a “NO EXAMS PASS.” Or something.)
