HRIM 430 Theme Dinner – Director’s Cut

4 Feb

Hey everyone!

So things are progressing quite quickly for our theme dinner! Only 45 days until the first meal night and we’re hard at work to get things prepared.  Our menu is finalized and reservations can now be made!

We had a test-run of our menu items last week and things went pretty well!  We’re really happy with how things turned out 🙂

Please check out our Facebook Event for our first meal to be held in Cafe Laura on March 21!
