Tickets to the event were limited “VIR” (Very
Important Residents—everyone, of course), as the Dining
Commons (DC) was transformed into an exclusive, tinsel town
venue for a real red carpet event.
Residents enjoyed pupus on the lanai which included spinach dip
with chips and freshly made bruschetta while they waited for
the event to begin.
Inside the DC, the red carpet was real and scattered with silver
stars, as celebrity photographs of real “stars” decorated
the walls, ceiling, and floor!
Steak, shrimp, sparkling cider, and a never-ending chocolate
fountain highlighted a dinner menu that was fit for screen and
stage royalty, Dessert included Flaming Alaska, no-flour chocolate
cake, and a chocolate waterfall complete with strawberries, pineapple,
and pound cake to dip!
Special dinner events such as this are put on monthly by the
Housing and Residence Life Food Committee, and residents are
already eager for the next “star studded” dinner
event of the semester, “coming up in March!” said
