Happy spring break!


March 19, 2014

    Finally, it’s almost here — most every college student’s favorite time of the year: spring break! The livin’ is easy.
    If you’ve never spent spring break in the Boro, you’re missing out.  There’s no shortage of hot parties and sparkling pools around the Boro, and they’ll offer the perfect settings for some unforgettable fun in the sun this week.
    However, with fun also come a few rules — and every rule has a reason.
    I’m sure you’ve noticed the NO GLASS signs posted outside the entrances of virtually every pool in town. However, until recently, I wasn’t sure exactly why restricting sunbathers from having glass containers around the pool was such a big deal. Maybe it’s just me, but the extent of my train of thought was broken glass —> cut foot —> ouch.
    But at a local apartment complex-hosted pool party, an employee enlightened me. Apparently, if a bottle shatters near the pool and even one tiny shard or sliver makes it into the water, the staff is required to drain the entire pool.
    What a pain.
    So, the next time you’re tempted to enjoy that glass bottle of beer poolside, don’t give in. Most everything is available in cans or plastic containers now, anyway. And if you’re really that determined, get creative: An empty plastic water bottle will always do the trick.
    Follow the rules, be safe, and most importantly, have a fabulous spring break!
