Top Ten: Places to go after Homecoming


Tatum Mitchell

Late night out at a Steak & Shake.

Looking for somewhere to go or a place to eat after a long night of dancing? Check out this ranking of post-homecoming activities to find a place to go with your group and/or date.

1.Steak N’ Shake. After a night of dancing, there’s no better way to end it than with a burger and milkshake.

2.Oberweis. Not feeling a full meal, but still craving ice cream? Oberweis is the best ice cream place in the area and is the perfect place for a post-homecoming outing.

3.House Party. Probably the most common post-homecoming activity. An after-party with your group is another great way to top off your night. This is also a flexible option, meaning that people can come and go as they please and won’t feel obligated to stay for the entirety.

4.Los Burritos Tapatios. Personally, Mexican food makes me want to take a 3-hour nap after eating it. So if you aren’t feeling staying out late and doing multiple post-homecoming activities, this may be the place for you.

5.Bowling. If you didn’t win any dance-offs or best-dressed competitions, bowling is a great option to cap off the night with some friendly competition. This is also a safe bet if you have a large group and don’t want to wait around for a table to open at a restaurant.

6.iHop. Honestly, after how much you’ve just sweat, carbs and breakfast food sound really good. Breakfast for dinner is always a safe bet and the service is relatively quick.

7.The Cheesecake Factory. If you’re feeling classy and want to have a nice (non-fast food) post-dinner, The Cheesecake Factory is a filling and sweet place to go with your date.

8.Home. Extending a great time with friends with another outing sounds great in theory; however, if you’ve had enough of people for one night, a shower and comfortable bed don’t sound so bad.

9.Tasty Treat. A great place to go for ice cream, you get huge servings and a lot of options to choose from. If you don’t mind going out of your way for quality ice cream, Tasty Treat is the right pick for you.

10.McDonald’s. McDonald’s is not the classiest of places to take your date after the dance, but if you have an after-party to get to this is a fast bite to eat before continuing your night.
