If you’re one of the many who pulled an all-nighter at the Bryce Jordan Center and have no intention of leaving, the concessions stand has you covered with some protein-rich breakfast options since normal stadium food can’t sustain people for 46 hours. Alternatively, if you spent the night in your dorm or apartment, waste no time going at the dining hall, Bagel Crust, or Irving’s because the BJC has you covered for the most important meal of the day.
The highlight of the THON breakfast menu is the breakfast bowls, which should fuel you for another day of dancing, water guns, no sleep, and solidarity. The Texas Round Up serves up eggs and pulled pork while the Buenos Dias will kick start your second day at the BJC with a mashup of eggs, ground beef, salsa, cheese, and jalapenos. These hearty meals go for $7.
If you aren’t feeling audacious enough to take in all those flavors at once when you’re going to be restricted to public restrooms until Sunday afternoon, there’s a more traditional sausage, egg, and cheese on an Irving’s (!) bagel or bacon, egg, and cheese on a biscuit for $5.
Quick and Simple Options
The concession stands are also offering less filling and cheaper options like a fruit cup for $4 or a simple bagel/muffin for $3.
With the line for the day already out the door and even more spectators expected to file in throughout the morning, there likely will be long lines for food so be sure to take advantage of the BJC’s Grab & Go Snack Bar at Portals 9 and 26 for muffins, yogurt, granola bars, and fruit.
While coffee is not recommended for THON because of the inevitable crash that is bound to follow before the grand total is revealed on Sunday, Sheetz coffee is being sold for $3 a cup.
