Dining Services brings holiday cheer to the Orleans Room

December 3, 2010

Loyola University New Orleans Dining Services will spread holiday cheer among students with a gingerbread house decorating event and the annual Christmas lunch.

Students will be able to decorate gingerbread houses provided by Dining Services and the University Programming Board on Monday, Dec. 6, from 5-8 p.m., in the Orleans Room. Limited houses are available, so participants are asked to arrive promptly in order to receive a house.

During the event, participants and Orleans Room diners can enjoy the new holiday classic, Polar Express, which will be playing in the cafeteria. The decorated houses will be on display in the Orleans Room near the comment board after the event.

To further the holiday cheer, on Dec. 8, from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., the Orleans Room will serve its annual Christmas lunch complete with roasted turkey breast, blackened pork loin with Creole mustard sauce, mashed potatoes, candied yams, Creole gumbo, stewed shrimp and okra, green beans with roasted almonds and assorted cakes and pies.

For more information on Dining Services’ holiday festivities, contact Katie Crow, Sodexo/Uptown Campus Dining Communication Specialist, at 251-421-1622 or Katherine.crow@sodexo.com.
