All-You-Can-Eat at the Student-Faculty Holiday Dinner!

16 Nov

This could be you! But with chinese food, and a human.

It’s my favorite event of the year – Student-Faculty Holiday Dinner!  Why?  Because for only $5 you can eat delicious chinese food for 2 hours straight.  That’s awesome.

In between bites, you can chat with friends and your favorite UHP professors too.

Here’s the deal:

  1. Pick up your $5 (cash only) ticket at the UHP office.
  2. RSVP on the Facebook to show off to your friend(s) that you’re in the UHP and get awesome food because of it.
  3. Bring your ticket with you to Charlie Chiang’s (1912 I Street) on Thursday, December 9th, anytime between 5-7pm. You don’t have to spend all two hours there, just come and go as you please!
  4. Eat.

We’ll see you there.
