YORK, Pa. — The weather outside might be frightful but students at Penn State York will be enjoying Late-night Breakfast inside with a theme of Winter Wonderland from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 11, at Rosie’s in the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. Attendees are invited to don winter wear, hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, boots, or whatever cold weather clothes work for them. Late-night breakfast is for members of the Penn State York community.

Penn State York faculty and staff will serve-up a variety of breakfast foods from bacon and eggs to pastry, muffins, coffee and more. The late-night breakfast has become a popular event on campus and provides a way for faculty and staff to connect with students and help them relieve stress as they prepare for finals.

In addition to enjoying plenty of food, students can socialize and will be treated to a performance by Dakaboom, an edgy music-driven a capella comedy duo. Dakaboom, Ben McLain and Paul Peglar, combine the musical genres of pop, hip-hop, opera, jazz, musical theater, electronica and a cappella to modernize and reinvent the vaudeville art form. McLain has made appearances on “General Hospital,” but spends most of his time recording and touring with electronic vocal band Sonos, featured this past season on NBC’s “The Sing Off.” Peglar, an actor and musician, works extensively with internet stars Chester See and Lana McKissack, and was the original piano player on the first season of Fox’s “Glee.”

Dakaboom celebrated their album release, “Get Awesome,” in New York City at the infamous club Don’t Tell Mama’s.

Late-night breakfast is sponsored by the Penn State York University Programming Board through funds from the campus student activity fee and the Penn State York Office of Student Affairs.
