There have been many attempts over the years to dress up the common lunchtime staple of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But as far as we’re concerned, it goes best with hundreds of our best friends and a rockin’ afternoon dance party. That’s what we at Flavorpill set out to create with Lunch Break, our newly-launched series of Summer Friday afternoon dance affairs. Inspired by great daytime parties like MoMA PS1’s Warm Up, and the slowly-spreading international afternoon dance party trend, we decided to chase off the Friday workday doldrums with some great music, cold drinks, and, of course, brown-bagged PB&Js. We brought in the DJs of Mister Saturday Night, who are known for throwing epic parties, we got the sandwiches ready, and we waited to see what happened.
Luckily, we didn’t have to wait long. New Yorkers responded in droves, and we quickly had a happy, dancing crowd of people who were obviously thrilled to get away from their desks and groove with the entire Flavorpill New York office. If you were there (hi, we’re best friends now!) and you’d like to re-live the magic, or if you want to see what you missed out on, check out our video recap of the afternoon. We hope you’ll join us this Friday and the next for what’s sure to be even more fun — and even more sandwiches!
