Culture Shock: Waka, World and Women
There are two approaches to spending your time in Gainesville:
You can complain that “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in a 3-4-1 Long Island at Midtown every night, or you can embrace your precious time here in Hogtown and go explore.
Every week Culture Shock provides you with a few of the best happenings in the city that don’t involve blacking out, Study Edge or Netflix binging.
Gainesville, it’s time to culture yourself.
