No cellphones allowed: Georgetown Hoyas take you back to 'actual reality'

- Georgetown Hoyas basketball is going old school this weekend, but not the way you might think. They're designating a section for special no technology, "actual reality" seating at Saturday's 12 pm game vs. St. John's. 

But there's a catch: you'll have to check your cellphone at the door. Literally. 

If you're up for the challenge, the ticket will cost you just $20 (remember those days?). They'll have 50 seats set aside in Section 118, and right next to that section, you'll find a cellphone check where you can drop your phone, and pick it up after the game.

Buy in and you'll get a paper ticket, which you'll pick up from a live human being, along with a "Hello, my name is..." nametag to wear. You'll be encouraged to use those nametags to help you have actual, face-to-face interactions with the people sitting around you. You know-- actually talk to each other! 

You'll also get halftime stats printed on a paper, delivered by a human. There will be a postcard/letter writing station, and if you just can't stand not documenting the moment with a pic, you can hit up their photo booth-- where you can take a photo with a Polaroid.

Ironically, the Hoyas announced the Actual Reality seating promotion on Twitter
