Students enrolled in the culinary
arts programs at Alfred State College will prepare a Mardi Gras celebration,
featuring a New Orleans-style menu, on Tuesday, Feb. 24 from 5-7 p.m., in the
student cafeteria of the Culinary Arts Building on the Wellsville campus.
Masked wait staff will serve patrons at tables decked out in bright colors
designed to evoke a Mardi Gras atmosphere; jazz selections will provide
additional ambience. Guests will receive complimentary Mardi Gras beads
in the traditional colors of green, gold, and purple.
Cost of the event is $13 for adults; $6 for children 10 and under. Proceeds
from the event, which is sponsored by the Top Hat Club (the culinary honor
society), will benefit the Club's Activity Fund.
Culinary seniors Abigail Kirsch, Wellsville, Chris Clark, Olean, and baking
senior Jessica Babb, Little Genesee, are student managers of the event.
The event is open to the public; no reservations will be accepted.
