December 2012 Holiday To Go

The University Club is happy to once again offer our menu of special holiday items. Starting Monday, December 3 through Wednesday, December 19 we will be taking order for a host of things from homemade pies to three kinds of tamales. These items are meant to compliment your own home menus or to wow a hostess or two. You can pick up your order as late as 2:00 on Friday, December 21.
In addition to the food items listed below, we will also have the Nouveau Beaujolais available for sale as long as it lasts. (This year's vintage of the Georges Deboeuf Nouveau is, according to Mr. Deboeuf, especially superb, due to ideal growing conditions. The wine pairs well with just about anything which makes it an excellent wine for the holidays.)
