Romance is the word for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day was so much simpler in elementary school. Everyone received cheap, paper Valentine’s valentine’s with the cartoon characters on themsuch as Scooby Doo or Mickey Mouse, and nobody felt left out. And the most intimate messages came in the form of candy hearts reading, “Be Mine” or “Kisses XOXO.” So when did the holiday […]

Talking ’bout a TiVo-lution

Imagine you were unlucky enough to be in the bathroom during the Superbowl halftime show and missed Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction.” You would be absolutely devastated that you missed this legendary moment in television history; that is, unless you have TiVo – the digital VCR-like box that lets you pause live television. All you have […]

Rams get Popped

In the GW men’s basketball team’s 82-74 victory over Rhode Island Saturday, sophomore forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu had one of his best all-around games as a Colonial, setting new career highs with 25 points and 12 rebounds.

Sam & Harry’s 1200 19th St. N.W. (between M and N streets) (202) 296-4333 www.SamandHarrys.com Steak is what D.C. is all about. It shows your killer instinct and political prowess in a cage of hungry party animals. It is the dinner of choice for Washington power brokers. Political players (and those in training) go to […]

Changing direction

Sitting at the end of the GW women’s basketball bench is Eran Horodniceanu, his short, skinny frame in a sharp, business-like suit. Horodniceanu follows the action in front of him and occasionally looks down through his glasses to record any analysis or observations with a pen. Truthfully, Horodniceanu looks more like an accountant than the […]

Joens Squashes Spiders in win

The GW women’s basketball team defeated Richmond 69-48 Sunday in a game in which senior Ugo Oha blocked the 326th shot of her career to tie the Colonials’ all-time record.
