UPB’s ever-popular Late Night Breakfast was once again a hit as students from every corner of campus gathered to celebrate the year’s last round of nightly breakfast food. As a graduating senior, I’ve never been to a Late Night Breakfast– blasphemy, I know. But on Friday, April 19th, I stepped foot in Festival ready to get my eggs and bacon on for the first and last time.
Upon walking in, my expectations for the event were quickly hurled out the window as I saw a mechanical bull whipping around an attendee, surrounded by a crowd of eager onlookers. It being the last event of the year, LNB had all sorts of bells and whistles, as the University Program Board wanted to go all out.
The theme of the night was superheroes; while many people used the theme to express their Marvel-madness, others used it as an opportunity to celebrate the everyday heroes in their lives. For me, it’d be my mother. And although the breakfast wasn’t quite like hers, being prompted to think about all of the people in my life who I admire gave the meal an extra layer of meaning.
The highlight of the night, obviously, was the food. After a second helping of French toast sticks, eggs, bacon, and the famous tater tots, my friends and I scoped out the dance floor. Complete with a
DJ and some amazing break dancers, the bottom floor of festival was alive with people getting down and just having fun. With new energy from the most important meal of the day, attendees stepped out onto the floor and let loose, making new friends and new memories.
Above all, Late Night Breakfast is a great place to spend time with friend. If you’re not into apartment parties or late-night bar crawls, Late Night Breakfast is the perfect place for Friday-night fun without the Saturday-morning hangover.
