The Yale College Council is hosting a party at Box 63 TONIGHT to complement worldwide exuberance surrounding the birth of Beyonce’s and Jay-Z’s new baby, Blue Ivy Carter.

The “baby shower”, which comes amid widespread speculation that the baby girl was named after Yale, will feature a themed “Blue Ivy” drink, according to the Facebook event. Perhaps a blueberry mojito? Is that a drink? Anyway, while Babyonce has already made more money in her 15-day life than many of us can ever dream for ($1.5 million, according to the event page), the YCC wants money: the event has a $5 entrance fee. The page does not mention that the event is for students aged 21 or over, as is indicated in the event poster.

In an effort to make this already spectacular event even more desirable, the YCC came up with a set of three interesting “things you might hear” at the party. The first: “I’ve got 99 problem sets, but I’m crazy in love with Blue Ivy, so I’m going to Box!”

“This is the best party theme in the entire world,” one commenter said. Mmmmhmmmmm.
