“The snow floated in the air, gently suspended in time as we made our way through the dark streets. Only the glow of the streetlights and our phone screens illuminated our way. With the cold, harsh wind piercing through our winter coats, we huddled closer and shuffled our way to Pogue Mahone. We were led to a round table eagerly waiting for the feast to begin. Little did we know that we would have to wait another agonizing 30 minutes before our hunger would be quenched. Let the games begin. ”

Shots were taken and yes, the alcoholic kind! The first big LMPSU social night was started with a bang. LMPers from all years alike joined for a night of laughter, good conversation and best of all, free food! First we dominated Museum Tavern back in August, and now we’ve conquered Pogue Mahone like the majestic Emperor Penguins we are. That’s right, Emperor Penguins are incredibly attractive and social (I looked it up).
The night was met with 16 pounds of chicken wings. Of course, that’s more than any one person can finish so it found its way to each of our hands leaving a scrumptious finger licking sauce behind. Grilled cheese sandwiches, loads of nachos, spring rolls and meatballs were also served. Food was delicious and really encouraged mingling between LMP students.
It was a prime opportunity for second year LMP students to get to meet the upper years in a casual environment and bond with other second year students. For the upper years, this was a good way to let loose before a crazy last week of tests, reports and assignments. It definitely led way to many Snapchat exchanges, selfies and creeper shots. Overall, the night ended with a blast (and a few missing items – but who needs a hat anyways?). I can’t wait for our next big event: Healing and the Heart Conference next semester so stay tuned!
P.s. did I mention how majestic we are?
Till next time,
