It's official! We had a fabulous Kickoff party on May 24 to start a summer of Happy Hour! Check out our great photos on Instagram.

We are open to nonmembers for happy hour all summer. As many of you know, happy hour on the Terrace is a wonderful way to end the work day and relax with your colleagues and friends over a drink, appetizers, or even an early dinner. We have a fabulous Bar Menu and a great Happy Hour menu as well.


Stop by between 4:00-7:00 pm, weekdays through August! Here's how it works: order at the bar and we'll deliver food and drinks to you on the Terrace.

Knitters Rise up on May 26: Drink & Knit, Maybe Outside?
Join Campus Club Executive Director Ann Holt for the next session of "Drink and Knit." We'll go outside weather permitting and knit in natural light! If it's raining, we'll gather in the comfy chairs and couches in the Campus Club bar. Grab a drink and relax with some nice late afternoon knitting and conversation. It's an informal and fun chance to enjoy time with like-minded souls while you work on your latest project.

No need to RSVP. Just show up and bring your friends and colleagues.

Third prize: bottles of wine for each member of the team.

Newcomers most welcome! Come with a team or come solo and we'll put you on a team. It's a great way to unwind and have some fun at the same time.

Campus Club Chefs at Mill City Farmers Market - Stop by May 28!

Campus Club Executive Chef Beth Jones and Demi Chef Nettie Colon will be two of the Mill City Cooks at the Mill City Farmers Market this summer. They'll be doing cooking demonstrations in the train shed patio using local and fresh ingredients for sale at the market. Stop by and say hello!

Beth did a great job on May 14. She cooked Mushroom, Greens, and Asparagus Pasta from 10:30-11:00 am using
fresh asparagus, seasonal mushrooms, and spring greens. The dish (and Beth) got rave reviews. Here's the recipe.

On May 28 on 10:30 am, Beth will be demonstrating how to prepare a perfect recipe for potlucks and grad parties: Braised Beef with Rhubarb Kimchi.

Campus Club Partnering with The Good Acre

The Campus Club is going to be buying from The Good Acre this growing season. The Good Acre partners with local farms to bring sustainably raised produce to the Twin Cities. We are proud to support the mission of The Good Acre, which is "to enhance how food is grown and shared in the Twin Cities region, to improve marketpl
ace opportunities for diverse independent farmers, and to increase access for all consumers to healthy, locally-grown fresh produce." More information about The Good Acre is here.

Watch this page for updates on Campus Club cooking classes at The Good Acre in the future.

Please Use Guest Cards in the Servery

We wanted to remind those of you who host (and plan) lunches here at the Campus Club that each guest who goes through the Servery at lunch time needs to have their own Guest Card. Each guest should present their Guest Card to the cashier as they exit the Servery. That way our cashier knows how to charge each meal.

We prefer you not tell people to "stick together" and share one card. This can get confusing for our cashiers. It can also be awkward for your guests, especially if it's a busy day.

There are two kinds of Guest Cards: one for Department memberships and one for personal memberships. They have slightly different information but work the same way! Let us know if you have questions about that.

When you book a room through the Events Department or a table through our front desk, we will ask if you need Guest Cards. The answer is "Yes" unless you have a set of your own to use.
