Summer is out and school is in session, which may seem like a drag, except for the fact that oh-so-many student-centric parties will be going down all semester long to alleviate all of your academic woes. Case in point: the Paint & Pint body painting party to be held at B1 Bar tonight, a totally free event for students, and anyone else who likes to get wild with paint.

The bodypaint buckets will be opening for you to dip, smear, and splatter all over yourself and whoever else you may like to get "creative" with starting at 10pm. Old school Hip Hop will be playing all night to keep the energy high, with Foosball tables setup to get a little competitive while you drink and paint.

All of the above, plus specially made drinks by B1's expert staff of mixologists and a horde of sexy students, and it's all for free. Sounds like a pretty legit Friday night.
