Sodexo kicked off their University Commons lunch buffet for faculty and staff today, with a delicious Celebrating Thailand menu in room B121 on the Abbotsford campus. Scores of staff dined between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in an elegant dining environment What? Yes, you read that correctly. Candlelight, classical music, white linen tableclothes, and even potted greenery — yes, trees! — had many a lunch goer doing a double take at the transformation. It’s the new hotspot to meet colleagues and catch up with friends.
The price is $10 (including HST), and it takes place nearly every Friday. Lunch menus will change (rumour has it a French theme is in the works, and, this writer’s fave: beef dip!), so be sure to check the What’s Happening @ UFV calendar for details.
