The catering and beverage management class in the Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management program will be preparing and serving luncheons, restaurant style, for faculty and staff on the following Thursdays during the fall 2013 semester:  The students in the class write their own menus, select recipes, and direct the entire operation of the event as part of the requirements of their Catering and  Beverage     Management class.

The Thursday luncheons will be a full service luncheon with an appetizer, salad, meat, starch, vegetable, dinner roll, dessert and beverages [coffee, tea, and iced tea].   The price will range from about $10.00 to $13.00 depending on the menu -- tipping                           is not accepted since this is a laboratory. The dinners will be served in the Academic Complex Dining Room (AC-213) -- you are welcome to arrive anytime between 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Seating will be limited to the first 60 people for each luncheon. Because of the cost of containers and the impact "take out" containers have on the environment, we do not have the capability to accommodate "to go" or take out meals or parts of meals.


Interested faculty and staff must purchase a ticket in advance. Tickets will be sold in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) office (AC-302) during normal business hours (8:00 am to 4:30 pm) beginning onThursday the week before the meal.         Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit cards, so please bring cash or a check made payable to WKU to pay for the tickets. Please note that calling the FACS office does not constitute a reservation or a ticket for you,a s tickets cannot be "held" for anyone.. You must have purchased a ticket to have a reservation. Tickets generally sell out rather quickly, so be sure to purchase your tickets early.

Ticket prices are not refundable -- here is why. We sell our tickets in advance, so we know exactly how many meals to prepare -- that way we keep the cost of the meal to a minimum. Since we do not maintain an inventory of food items and we have no other                           source of funding, we purchase only the ingredients we need for each meal,  using the funds from the tickets. Once a ticket is purchased, we commit those funds to purchase the items we need to prepare and serve the meal. If you purchase a ticket and realize                           later that you cannot attend the luncheon for one reason or another, please understand there are no funds available to give you a refund -- the money has already been committed to purchase food and supplies for the meal. Feel free to transfer the tickets to a friend.

Thanks for your support. Bon Appetit!
