BJC BBQs Return With Three All-You-Can-Eat Themed Barbecues

The Bryce Jordan Center loves a good alliteration using the letter “B” and those who have spent time in State College over the summer love the BJC’s summer barbecues just as much. This year the Jordan Center announced the return of the BJC BBQ for three dates this summer.

Each day features a different themed BBQ with the three meals spread out over the summer. The schedule and themes are:

  • Wednesday, June 8: Philly vs. Pittsburgh (if you’re indifferent, you can still go for the BBQ but a BJC insider told me the food tastes better when you’re wearing a Phillies jersey)
  • Wednesday, July 13: Backstage Rider
  • Wednesday, August 10: Big Ten Tailgate

The BJC has yet to specify a time for the BBQs, but check back to their Facebook page as the event gets closer for more specifics — in the past the meals fell during lunchtime. Each meal is all-you-can-eat for, get this, only $10, so if you’re staying in an apartment in State College this summer and have to provide your own food for the first time in your life and you’re broke and starving, you’re in luck! Oh is that just me? Either way we’re all in luck.

Hungry Townies and Penn Staters alike can find the buffet outside the BJC’s Gate B and the meal is on rain or shine. Bryce Jordan Center Catering will serve as grill masters for the event, and after seeing the type of sandwiches it can crank out, there’s really no way you can leave disappointed…or at least hungry.
