De Gustibus

Updated June 19, 2015

Closed for Maintenance June 29-July 3
The Campus Club will be closed the week of June 29. That includes all event space, the Servery cafeteria, and the Terrace. There will be NO food or beverage service this week. Only the administrative offices will be open. The good news is we are getting new carpeting in the West Wing and hallways and new sheer drapes in the West Wing. The Dale Shephard room will be updated and will be getting new wallpaper and carpeting.

Come see the refreshed look when we are open again on July 6.

Join Us for "Pairing Wines with Sunshine" July 29
Sign up now for this wonderful summer wine tasting with Jason Kallsen on July 29 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. Last year's event was great fun and we anticipate more of the same this year with a great flight of summer wines, wonderful appetizers, and an informal and fun setting out on the Terrace. Cool, refreshing wines are perfect for a warm summer afternoon. This is more of a wine tasting than a class but Jason will be on hand to tell you all about them. Sign up now and consider bringing a friend or two!

Cost is $30. Sign up online (see below) or contact Ann Holt at 612-624-6626 or acholt@umn.edu.

Tried Redhead Creamery Cheese Curds? Berliner Spritz?
Campus Club members and guests are enjoying a new Beer and Cocktail Menu, an updated Scotch Menu and some new items on the Bar and Wine Menu. Have you tried our fabulous Cheese Curds made with cheese from our friends at the Redhead Creamery?

There are so many cocktails to try, so much local beer on tap, so many great burgers and more on the Bar Menu... and so little time! Minnesota summers are short. Make the most of this one by enjoying old and new favorites on our fabulous Terrace.

Very Small Dues Increase
Regular, individual members may notice a very small dues increase starting July 1, the beginning of our fiscal year. Dues will increase by $4 per year, from $209 to $213. The new payroll deduction amount will be $8.19 per pay period.

Small increases in dues are necessary to keep up with the inflation in fixed costs such as rent and utilities.

It's OK to Book More Than a Year Out!
We have had a busy month at the Campus Club and apologize to those of you who tried to book events on days that we were already all filled. As most of you know, we book events on a first-come, first-served basis so many rooms for April and May were booked many months ago.

You are welcome to book with us for your end-of-semester, staff recognition, and any other annual events at any time. More than a year away is just fine! Contact the Campus Club Events Office at ccevents@umn.edu or 612-615-1967.

A happy bride wrote us:

"Thank you!! We had a fantastic time on Saturday. Everyone at the Club was more helpful than we ever could have imagined, moving people from place to place and arranging everything just so. We had so many compliments from our guests about the venue - that it was a wonderful place, some said it was the best wedding venue they had ever been to."
