“What other University you know have a National Brunch Day in all the lit ass cities with dope ass turnouts? I’ll wait... #Noles #Trendsetters” @Myri_F_Baby
I could NOT have said it better! Florida State University Black Alumni National Brunch Day 2019, #FSUBABrunch, was a success! I can only personally speak about the Jacksonville location but from looking at the pictures and videos, all the cities had a great time! New friends were made, old friendships were rekindled, good food was had, and time was well spent! What started as just an idea, became a reality for Chris Evans. Last year, he had the brilliant idea to have a brunch for all alumni, in different cities, on the same day and at the same time. Just thinking about it is probably giving you a headache! But for the second year in a row, hundreds of black alumni came out in each city and broke bread!
People truly love FSU and Chris to volunteer in each city to plan these brunches...for nothing! Yes! FSU Black Alumni representatives and volunteers organize and execute these brunches for FREE! Seeing everyone come together across the country is payment enough!
Jacksonville didn’t just brunch, we partied! Not just any type of party neither. We partied like we were in Bajas or Top Flite! You remember those days! Don’t front! Greeks strolled like it was Union Wednesday. We literally relived our Tallahassee days thanks to DJ Jazzy Jeff and DJ Twan da Guy! Knees were cracking trying to K-wang with it and Whoop! I aint never seen a bunch of old folks getting down the way we did! Haha! But it was so worth it!
And a special shout out to our friends from across the tracks, alumni of FAMU, who came out and showed major love!
I cant wait to see everyone Labor Day weekend for the season opener against Boise State here in Jacksonville. If you havent gotten your ticket to Chop & Brunch, get it now and bring that same energy!
