Breakfast Club Game Watch – November 5, 2016!

The Breakfast Club game watching party is fast approaching! Come out to the Minnesota watch party on November 5, 2016, at Rush on Main in Zionsville in your Breakfast Club attire (hint: save those Halloween costumes) or come as you are! Reminisce over traditional beverages, costumes, toe-tapping jams, and prizes.  Please invite your Boilermaker and Non-Boilermaker friends alike to share in the festivities of a Breakfast Club.

The doors will open at 9 AM, but please feel free to wait outside beforehand so as to have a true Breakfast Club experience. Specials will include a Make Your Own Bloody Mary Bar ($5), Top Shelf Screwdrivers ($3), and Breakfast Taco Bar (2 tacos will cost $6). Appetizers will also be provided for the following game watch party. We will also be hosting a best costume contest with prizes.  We hear that Beau the Bison may make an appearance!

We will also have silent auction items, and raffle items—proceeds will benefit the scholarship fund.

If you haven’t been there, Rush on Main is located at  112 South Main Street in Zionsville. Boiler up for Breakfast Club!
