Each semester the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism invites a local chef to visit the Club. Students are given the opportunity to work alongside a culinary master preparing an exquisite luncheon Menu. Guest Chef Day is the most popular day of the semester and is always a sold-out event! Reservations are required for this special day, and the price is an incredible value at $15.00 or 1 ticket plus $5.00.
