Orange and Black Ball.jpeg

Can't bring back the past? Of course we can: a Roaring 20s ball for the Classes of the 2020s

From fake pearls to 1920s-themed appetizers, Princeton’s “Roaring Twenties'' themed Orange and Black Ball on Nov. 4th  was filled with all the glitz and glam that many students missed coming out of a global pandemic. Despite the difficulties the OBB’s date presented for some students — who celebrated the Hindu religious festival Diwali on that night — the ball allegedly saw an attendance increase of about 500 students since the last time it was held two years ago.

So for this installment of TTT, I reviewed gluten-free desserts in Princeton.
