If you like to eat samosas, consider this something of a dream. Rutgers DIYA oversees its eighth annual samosa eating contest at 7 p.m. in the Busch Student Center. A bunch of heavyweights will square off in the contest, but spectators can pay $3 to watch and eat catered Indian food.

It turns out you don’t need to go to New York to feel like you’re in New York. That’s because Rutgers Wind Symphony plans to perform “New York, New York” at 7:30 p.m. at the Nicholas Music Center. The show features Mark Dover, a renowned clarinet soloist, and other big-name musicians.

UndocuRutgers, a campus group that advocates for undocumented students, holds its general meeting at 9:15 p.m. in the Center for Latino Arts and Culture. It’s also a potluck, which means attendees are encouraged to bring foods from various countries.

Or you can drink liquor to satisfy your weekly activism quota. The Rutgers One and the Same Foundation hosts a bar night at the Olive Branch from 11 p.m. to closing. Shots cost $2, and the proceeds help vaccinate children in India.
