Member Appreciation Happy Hour with Urban Growler & Mill City Jazz on September 17

Campus Club Members: join us for a free event to kick off the school year. We appreciate your patronage and will prove it by providing local beer from our friends at Urban Growler (Minnesota's first women-owned microbrewery) and special appetizers from the Campus Club kitchen. We'll also have live music by the Mill City Jazz Trio, who will be joining us regularly this fall and winter in the Lounge Corridor on Wednesdays. Here's a chance to get a sneak preview.

This is a free event for members. You are welcome to bring guests at $15/person. Sign up online or by calling 612-626-7788.

Hurry and Enjoy the Summer Bar Menu while it lasts!
There are many great options on our summer Beer and Cocktail Menu. It is hard to decide what to order. Check out the great items on our Bar and Wine Menu. To get you in the mood for the State Fair, come try our amazing Cheese Curds made with cheese from our friends at the Redhead Creamery. They have been a favorite all summer.

Muse Salon Returns: Trilogy of Events
We are proud to partner again this year with Muse Salon to host a trilogy of Muse Salon events that will trace the existential journey of a 20th century artist. We hosted a Muse Salon event in the West Wing last spring that was a huge success. Muse Salon events combine informal music performances, stimulating conversation, and food and drink. For a full description of the triology, visit the Muse Salon web site

The first Salon is Friday, September 18 at The Museum of Russian Art. The program, titled "Resistance," explores the growing discord in Europe in the early part of the 20th century. Guest Jin Kim, Baroque violinist, will perform along with Salon directors Rena Kraut, clarinet, and Ora Itkin, piano; music will be interspersed with dialogue led by Anastasia Kayiatos, Assistant Professor of Russian Studies at Macalester College. To register for Sept. 18, click here.

The second Salon, "Streets & Balconies of Paris" is Sunday, January 24 at Alliance Francaise. Sign-up details coming later. The third Salon is Friday, April 8 here at Campus Club!
