Now, for the moment we’ve all been waiting for….Finals Brunch is finally here! For those of you who are seasoned Georgetown students, you may know it as Midnight Brunch, a.k.a. the only time of year when you have the chance to be served breakfast food in the Caf by none other than Dr. Gambill himself. It’s like Georgetown’s very own fourth-meal, with less tacos and more familiar faces in the pick-up line.
For those of you who are freshmen and have not been able to experience this Georgetown tradition, you do not want to miss out! Feel free to join others in dressing up for the occasion, and I don’t mean dresses and tuxedos. I mean crazy costumes! Grab whatever (appropriate) Halloween leftovers you have stashed in your closet and head on over to the Caf. There you will have your choice of a variety of breakfast items, usually including eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon and many more options. The best part is that you are served by Georgetown professors and staff!
This year is especially exciting with the new addition of a pancake bar, thanks to the SGA Caf Committee! There will be plenty of pancakes and plenty of toppings to choose from.
Whether you’re wearing a costume or not, don’t miss your chance to socialize and eat some great food before we all head home for winter break. Finals Brunch will be from 10 p.m. – midnight this Thursday, Dec. 6.
If that wasn’t enough to convince you to grace the Caf with your presence, check out these quotes from your fellow peers on their favorite part of Finals Brunch:
