Jesus’ new port tradition cut short

first_imgJesus College’s Port Monday, designed to boost the attendance of the College’s bar, has been shut down after its first week.According to an email sent to undergraduates, the JCR recently introduced Port Mondays to “increase numbers at the bar.” This involved offering “a free bottle of Port to the first group of 5 people in the bar.”However, this was to be short-lived, as a later email said, “Port Mondays have ended. Giving away port is discouraged because you’re all such lightweights.”The JCR member who organised the promotion stated, “It was all sorted out very amicably between myself and college staff.”Likewise, Alexander Proudfoot, Vice President of Jesus College’s JCR Committee, concurred that, “I don’t think there was actually any issue with it from college or anybody else.”Following the incident’s resolution, the event’s organiser emailed students saying that Port Mondays have been “changed to Wine Monday[s], which is the same deal but on a bottle of wine. So that’s the first 5 people in the bar get a free bottle of wine.”last_img read more
