You’ve heard of a pregame tailgate, but a preschool tailgate? Find out as the Talon takes a look at the American Breakfast Club.
Some friends go eat pizza and hang out, others will just go to a friends house, but this group of cb students enjoy tailgating with each other.
The masterminds behind this idea are seniors Zach Steving (’16), Jordan Lockwood (’16) and Anthony Gentile (’16).
Gentile says “they were inspired by last year’s breakfast club” but named it the American Breakfast Club to give it their own twist.
“It’s a great way to get together and enjoy an American Breakfast with some of our fellow seniors,” Anthony says.
The seniors and their friends tailgate whenever they can, but preferably on a 9:00 start day or on a Friday after school. Twice they’ve gotten to school early at around 7:30 and cooked some eggs, bacon, and other delicious breakfast items. Another time they got together after school and cooked some burgers.
To them it’s not just about the food; it’s about the quality time you get with your friends.
“The tailgates are relatively chill and pretty exihilerating, we listen to classic rock, play corn hole and just laugh and have an all around great time,” Anthony says.
As great as tailgating with your friends can be, it comes at a cost. To avoid having someone buy all the food, each person has to find a way to contribute to the tailgate, which really isn’t much considering the quality meal that you’re getting.
“Five dollars is basically nothing when you’re getting eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, and even milk or OJ,” Anthony says.
The group just wants people to help contribute they will even accept things like napkins, plates, utensils, or propane bottles as something to participate in the tailgate.
Once they collect the money from those participating, Lucas Hoffart (’16) goes to the store and purchases the supplies and brings the food to school the next day.
Once Lucas brings the food to school, he gives it to the chef Anthony, who then proceeds to cook an amazing feast.
Efren Sanchez (’16) claims that there is no food he’d rather be eating than Anthony’s.
“His food makes him cry out of happiness,” Efren says.
So if you’re interested in tasting this food that can bring you great joy, look around the school for Anthony Gentile and ask what you can do to get involved in these amazing tailgates.
