Gatsby's Decadent Dinner

University Catering is creating an event, an experience if you will, that Jay Gatsby himself would be proud to host, and then oddly stay in his room debating on how to make an appearance. Gatsby's Decadent Dinner will lend a respite before you head into the last week of the quarter and the study/cram/freak-out sessions that are sure to ensue. We're here to help you power through the rest of the quarter and into spring break.

Gatsby's Decadent Dinner will be hosted at the PAC starting at 5 p.m. on March 11.

Reserve your spot now and for five meal credits or $42.50 you can sit down to a dining experience that F. Scott himself would be excited about.
