Fat Friday

Fat Tuesday came early to Ida Noyes this past Friday night, with the Council on University Programming's (COUP) annual Mardi Gras celebration. Donning yellow, green, and purple masks and beads, students lined up for balloon animals, caricature artists, fortune-tellers, and face-painters. They consumed plenty of food and beer—if they were of age—or “mocktails,” water, and soft drinks. Local DJ duo Flosstradamus spun tunes in the third-floor theater, while live band the Cooker Boys and Jugglers Enriching Lives Like Ours performed in the first-floor Cloister Club.

COUP, the organization behind Blues ’n Ribs, Fall Formal, and Kuviasungnerk/Kangeiko, has two more events on the roster for spring quarter: Dance Marathon April 8 and 9 and Summer Breeze May 19 and 20.
