No boundaries: Gainesville Improv Festival plays all

Don’t you dare throw this lovely piece of literature that we call The Alligator away.  And I’m not suggesting that you go green and skip your pretty little feet on over to the recycling bin either. Save your newspapers; they could be used as the inspiration for one of this year’s performances at the Gainesville Improv Festival.

Zumba offers fun fitness alternative

Before Erica Hyatt walks through the door, she is a chemical engineering major. She is a student at the UF. She thinks about homework and grades and meetings for the intramural softball team she is on. But for the hour she is in the room, she forgets all of that. She throws her arms in the air and sways her hips to the blaring music.

Tweetups bring online friends face-to-face

Demi Moore stopped a desperate suicide attempt by re-posting an ominous message, a University of California, Berkeley student evaded Egyptian prison by posting the word "arrested," and Gainesville residents who had never met in person partied together at a local Japanese restaurant. Though seemingly unrelared and in different corners of the world, these three events have one thing in common - Twitter.

Just a couple things

One of the perks of bartending is that I get to people-watch during lulls. People-watching in a bar gives you insight into relationships that no psychology class could accomplish. Couples who come into the bar generally fit into a few types, and I have found they are by far the most entertaining people to watch.
