Free Kicks Thursday

We are two months into the semester, and surely financial aid funds are quickly running out, if they are not totally gone already. Luckily Gainesville's got your back today with lots of events to help you escape midterm stress on a dime or less. 

Start your day with a free pumpkin decorating craft session at the Colonnade, surely to make for a good send-back-to-the-rents present. While at the Reitz, don't forget to stop by the CRC's Career Fair for some totally free, but not at all cheap career advice and a chance to score a great job (gotta get the income rolling again). 

Grab a $4 Hare Krishna lunch at the Plaza of the Americas, then indulge your inner music fanatic with the sounds of a 400-voice choir, as UF celebrates it

s 25th Annual Invitational Choral Festival at the University Auditorium. Catch the sounds of youth at 3pm, while six, high school choirs perform; followed by a team-up between the high school choirs and the UF choir singing together at 4 pm. It all leads up to the University Choir Invitational Fall Concert, Mostly Multicultural Musical Musings, at 7:30 p.m.

All that vocal talent got you inspired? End the day with a free screening/sing-along of Purple Rain at Orange & Brew as RUB celebrates the 25th anniversary of Prince's classic musical film. 

Transition into nighttime, party mode with free beer at Lux Bar from 9:30 to 10:30 pm. After a full-day and early evening of free fun, give something back to your community by visiting Sharab Lounge, where Sharab's promotional group PRNTHS have set up to have the evening's door proceeds benefit The Scleroderma Foundation. In exchange for your generosity, Sharab will be offering up Orlando-super DJ Justin James and as always killer drink specials. Check out the Facebook event for more information. 

Want to save on gas and Gainesville's infamous parking tickets/towing fees? Grab your student ID and log onto RTS Trip Planner to work out your chauffeuring.
