Friendsgiving. It’s a national holiday, but you get to decide who, when and where you’ll celebrate. Gather your pals and display everyone’s best chef skills! If you’re a tenant with Philadelphia Square, you’ll have the best venue off-campus.

Embrace Your Inner Foodie

It’s imperative to have a large kitchen equipped with the high preforming appliances for your Friendsgiving to go off without a hitch. Our 280 S 7th St. apartments offer large and spacious kitchens. You and your friends can lay out the delicious spread along the ample amounts of counter space. Pull up a seat at the island and dig in. Don’t just slither on over to the couch to sleep off your food coma, pop on over to the theatre room. That’s right, all of our tenants, regardless of where they lease, get full access to it. We’ll even have fresh popcorn for you to much on, if you have room!

Planning Your Friendsgiving Menu

Be sure to consider your guest food allergies, dietary restrictions, and preferences. Curating an inclusive menu starts with knowing who’ll be attending, so get that group chat ready or send out a Facebook event this Friendsgiving extra professional. Ask your guests if they can all sign up to bring a side dish or dessert. This way everyone can share some of their favorite recipes with those that they are thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Making Friendsgiving Memories

Time flies when you’re having fun, so don’ forget to capture those memories. A fun idea is having a photo station. You can make fun props or even pick up a few from the store. It will be a gobble of a time, especially if there are a few disposable cameras they can use. Best of all, you can use those photos as holiday gifts or share in that group chat or Facebook event you made. Make this a Friendsgiving that everyone remembers.

Season of Giving

Be the hostess with the mostess this year. Ask your guests if they can being a non-perishable food item that can be donated to a local food bank. You can have a mini food drive all while making memories with your friends. It’s an easy way to spread that thankful feeling to others in Indiana. Consider seeking out if there’s other students on campus who could benefit from the donations and give them a chance to have their own meal with their friends.
