The Three W’s: Weekend Wrap-up and Wassup (Week of 10/31/11)

The Dead Rise For A Good Cause (Saturday, October 29th): This past weekend, ghouls, zombies, and other creatures invaded Champaign-Urbana. Of course the weekend leading up to all hallows eve is a crazy one filled with parties, get togethers and plenty of other shenanigans, but some University of Illinois students used the blood and gore for good. This past Saturday, zombies littered the Main and South Quads for the 5K Zombie Chase benefiting the student chapter of The Wildlife Society on the University of Illinois campus. Those participating in the event were left to “run for their lives” strategically running around, working with others, to avoid the 30 something zombies and “infected” zones throughout the course. Zombies for a good cause, can’t get much better than that; except if the Captain is involved.

Captain Morgan Halloween Party (Monday, October 31st): What is it about Captain, costumes, and the chance to win an iPad? Oh, yeah, the Captain Morgan Halloween Party, going down over at KAM’S right now! If you aren’t there dressed up in your spooky best, then you need to be. However, if you’re too tired to get out of your PJs to get crazy, then you can creep through our photos of the event which will be posted here and on our facebook page ( soon. If saving the planet is more your seen than you’re in luck, because sustainability week is right around the corner!
