Davidson Generals’ ‘Big Show’ proves to be a big success
A near 200 frolicking Davidson students packed into the Duke Family Performance Hall on April 26, eagerly awaiting the beginning of The General’s “Big Show.” While many expected a full sprint into a melodic marathon, the show instead began with an opening video recounting the “hobbies” The Generals had acquired as a group.
One-acts series continues
Last week, the Davidson Department of Theatre presented the first two plays in its annual One-Act Series.

Summer movie preview
Summer always delivers great cinematic excitement, and this year promises to be no different.

Davidson’s new white-hot secret!
How much do you know about the upcoming campus event Picnic en Blanc?
Word of Picnic en Blanc has emerged ever so carefully through invitations in the mail, follows on Twitter, rumors by word of mouth, and now, an article in Living Davidson.

According to blog posts on the anonymous organizers’ website, Picnic en Blanc claims inspiration from Diner en Blanc, a “chic picnic” that started in Paris in the 1980s.
Classical cartoon music favorites sure to delight
One can sometimes associate an orchestra concert with long and occasionally soporific classical pieces. The upcoming orchestra concert tonight, April 24, however, is bound to negate any and all preconceived notions of the typical orchestra concert. This Davidson College Symphony Orchestra concert features music from Fantasia, “Looney Tunes,” and “Tom and Jerry,” or as the poster advertises, “classical music from classic cartoons.

Trends, favorites of eating house formal fashions
It’s that glorious time of year, when freshman guys reluctantly ask Upperclassmen to tie their bow tie for them, and girls raid their friends’ closets in the hopes of finding that perfect, “new” dress. Yep, its formal time. And though most of the Eating House formals have already come and gone, the fraternity formals are just getting started, and it’s crunch time: the last few week of school, when the only thing you should be thinking about is acing your finals, and the only thing you’re really thinking about it how awesome you want to look next weekend, and whether or not your date feels the same sparks that you do when you half-wave at him on your way to Chambers.
Flavorful breakfast just a stroll away
If you’re looking for a nice sit-down eatery this weekend, check out The Egg in Davidson
While recovering from a weekend of kickball and island-hopping, I felt I needed some bold flavors to refuel and recharge for the upcoming work week. Where else should I decide to visit other than Davidson’s own, “The Egg Cafe?” A bit of a change of pace from the delis and fast food joints I normally frequent on such occasions, The Egg is a nice little sit-down breakfast restaurant just across the train tracks on Griffith Street.
