It's no secret that this weekend is the Super Bowl of University sports. With the upcoming Panda Game, there's bound to be a sh*t ton of events surround this weekend's celebrations. With that being said, take a look at these events happening all weekend long so you can be in the game even if you aren't playing.
Thursday, September 28th: Thirsty Thursday: PANDA EDITION at Oliver's Pub and Patio at 9pm. Anyone who goes to Carleton or who knows someone who goes to Carleton knows that Ollie's is the place to be every Thursday. They have drink specials on certain beers and because of this special event, it will be even more L-I-T than usual. It's $3 cover, free coat check (but I don't suggest leaving a laptop bag in there), and there's no entry after 1am. There will be free panda swag give aways all night!
Friday, September 29th: PANDA CONCERT with International Headliners. Somehow CUSA has managed to book Canadian duo DVBBS for the concert at the EY Centre. There will be bus pick up services at Carleton, Downtown Ottawa, Algonquin, and Orleans but you must have bought a bus ride ticket with your concert ticket. Buses will depart at 2:15 after the concert and return to the pick up locations. Be safe!
Saturday, September 30th: GAME DAY
Saturday MORNING: Carleton's OFFICIAL PRE-PARTY is happening at no other place than Ollies! There will be a classic Pancake Pre hosted by CUSA and BirdGang (formally known as RedZone) from 10am until 12:30. This will be the place to be to get pumped up prior to the game. There will also be face print, which I am quite good at might I add. So come find me or any other member of BirdGang and we can paint your face in Raven's colours!
Saturday MORNING: Panda Game Pre-Party hosted by the U-Ottawa Gee Gees will be happening at the Aberdeen Pavilion from 11am until 1pm. There's a hefty price of $30 per person, however it does include a ticket and entertainment.
Saturday AFTERNOON: THE PANDA GAME! TD PLACE. 1PM kick off! Pedro has been in the property of the Carleton Ravens for three years in a row and we hope to add Pedro to the Raven's Nest for the 4th year in a row. Reminder: there are no bags allowed of any form into TD Place, but some small purses may be accepted.
Saturday NIGHT: OFFICIAL PANDA AFTER PARTY presented by CUSA and Tequila Jacks. The party starts at 9pm until 2am. Early Bird Ticket price is $7, the door price is $10. You can get tickets at Henry's Convenience Store (1st floor UC at Carleton)
Sunday Morning: Hangover BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, LUNCH! Kettlemenns on Bank Street right near TD place is amazing. They take more than cash now which is awesome. Zak's Diner in the Byward Market is always a good spot for poutine and hearty breakfasts of all kinds.
This is the most anticipated game in University Sports football; don't miss out on all the hype this weekend because there are way too many fun things going on. Don't forget to remember to drink responsibly and travel responsibly as well!
