We tried something new for Homecoming this year, and by all accounts it was a success. Before the game, the Oval served as the picture-perfect backdrop for the Homecoming Fall Festival, drawing more than 600 alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, and children for great music, games, food, and drink. The Sons of Origin, featuring Dorian Lake ’02, Anthony Babino ’09, Christopher Sabol ’12 and Steven Babino ’13, rocked the crowd while our guests feasted on some of Staten Island’s best eats, from Alfonso’s Pastry Shoppe, Clove Road Bagels, Cucumber Sushi & Salad Bar, Jimmy Maxx, Joe & Pat’s, John’s Restaurant & Pizzeria, Lorenzo’s, Marie’s Gourmet, Moe’s Southwest Grille, Muscle Maker Grill, Hungry Sombrero, and Lackmann Culinary Services, Wagner’s own dining contractor. We’ll be building on this new format for next year and making it even bigger and better — so stay tuned for announcements about Homecoming 2014!
