Allegro's Late Night Scene About To Get Later (Or Earlier?)

The rumors are true. On a soon but yet to be disclosed date, Allegro will be opening their doors to the drunk/sad/hungover/stressed/just plain hungry for all of the hours. That's right: our beloved pizza joint (Zesto has yet to earn such a dear place in our hearts) will be open 24/7. 

We're pretty sure what the newfound 3 a.m., 4 a.m., and 5 a.m. Allegro scenes will be like, but who will be part of the 8 a.m. Allegro crew? Professors grabbing some garlic knots before a long day of stretching the bounds of human knowledge? Dining hall workers nomming some marginally-better-than-Commons 'za? Stay tuned.

Oh Y'Know, Just Riding Our Bikes On The Roof Of Frogro

Welcome back, Penn! Now that our readership is back up to ≈18 people with everyone back from summer, we thought we'd take the time to inform you that A BAND OF RECKLESS, HEDONISTIC YOUTHS WAS SPOTTED absolutely tearing up the roof of Frogro with their bikes yesterday :'(. 

Check out the raw footage taken by the DP's new DRONE, which stands for Daily Reconnaissance Or Notetaking Engineer and is basically someone the DP pays $12/hr to do laps around each rooftop lounge with their iPhone camera pointed out the window. The safety cones, padding, and instructor in the video tell us that the dangerous biker gang is definitely up to something. Keep an eye out this semester, and send your tips to tips@underthebutton.com.

Pi Kapp Goes Off-Campus And Rebrands As “Phi"

For those of you who spent NSO living under a rock reading a sad handwritten book, you might have gone to a party hosted by “Phi” and just thought it was your normal, sweaty, run-of-the-mill fraternity. But what you DON’T know, unless you’re like soo in the know, is that this new brotherhood of men is none other than the old Pi Kapp (Pi Kappa Phi), aka the latest in a long line of Panhellenic recognized Greek organizations to join Penn’s off-campus community.

After a tumultuous past two years–first a hazing allegation in 2014, followed by a series of probations/cease and desist, suspensions, and neglect by OFSL–the fraternity unanimously voted to move off campus last spring and was subsequently kicked off campus this summer. Their charter was revoked, and now they will operate under the name “Phi” and do literally the same thing they would’ve done as Pi Kapp. They’ll dirty rush, host parties and be free from the system.

That makes seven off-campus organizations (all of which can be seen here to the right). Only one question remains: who’s next?

Frontera May Be Expensive As Hell Now

Looks like chef and restauranteur Rick Bayless is at it again. Last year he stole our hearts and our Penn Cash with his zesty guacamole and those cute little buzzers, and word has it that the crafty chef may have raised prices even more.

According to the menu posted on his website, guac and chips are now $6.25, and many of the sandwiches have gone from a steep but worth it $9 to a soul-crushing $12. Double digits. They might as well dump spicy habanero salsa all over our hearts.

Free Cold Brew Iced Coffee From Saxbys – today and next Friday. Free iced coffee would thrill us about as much as finding out that our double in the Quad doesn't have a sink, but free cold brew?

Princeton Review Thinks That Penn Can't Party

In keeping with the too long-standing tradition of lists and rankings, the Princeton Review released their, "Top 10 Party Schools in America" list. And in a bit of a not-at-all ironic twist, Penn was left off the list ENTIRELY! 

What gives P.R. – have you no sense of party schools? Didn't you think you should consult with Playboy before putting out such a list?
