Meals That Dancers Are Craving Most Right Now
As dancers continue to press on here at the BJC, it’s apparent not only their spirits are growing, but so are their appetites for their favorite foods. Even with Hospitality constantly catering to the food needs of the dancers, it’s sometimes tempting to think about the food that awaits outside the BJC doors after the final 46 hours. With many dancers contemplating exactly what would hit the spot right at this very moment, we got a wide variety of mouth-watering answers:
For some, it was as easy as 1, 2, 3; and Uncle Chen’s was no stranger to that. Asian food was definitely a crowd favorite and the prospect of getting some lo mein or friend rice was enticing to most. Dancer Nik Turner was watering at the mouth at the thought of having anything from Uncle Chen’s.
While I could’ve seen this one coming from a mile away, Chick-Fil-A proved to be a crowd favorite as well. From nuggets to the classic sandwich, dancers couldn’t hold back their want to sink their teeth into a good ole’ southern fried chicken. Dancer Josh Wei told me that he was craving a chicken burger for most of the day today.
While some dancers sought to give me a favorite food that was light in fare, some had every intention of either “going big or going home.” Right next to calzones, pizza was a hot favorite on the floor and easily brought out the most enthusiastic answers. “Biting right into a DP Dough pizza would bring me pure joy. But I have to have ranch too, and there’s no other option,” Alex Stough told me.
While there are so many choices where you can binge on unhealthy foods, some dancers are enticed by the notion of clean eating. Dancer Heather Wong stated, “I’ve just been eating so many carbs and protein that I just could really go for a salad. Something light.” Something healthy definitely doesn’t sound all too bad right about now.
For some while it’s hard to think on the spot, the most resounding answer for what dancers wanted was just a little taste of home. Momma’s cooking was longed for by many different dancers such Sean Gregory, who also works for Onward State. He told me, “If I could just have some homemade ham mac ‘n’ cheese, I’d be in heaven.” On the other hand, some dancers just wanted a little touch of fresh, homegrown options such as delectable fruit smoothies and pretzels with peanut butter.
These are just some of the cuisines that dancers are craving. If we could sneak it in from press row, we would.
