Whether you love it or hate it, it comes around every February 14th. Flowers, chocolates, cupids, greeting cards, kisses, lovebirds, hearts and lace, they all represent this complicated holiday steeped in fascinating history and mythological mystery.
If you’re the type who is “in love with love,” you’ll go all out on this special day.
If you’re the type who’d rather skip the whole month of February, you’ll just need to grin and bear it!
But if you have to acknowledge Valentine’s Day, before you head out for a high-priced dinner off campus, consider enjoying a special Valentine’s Day meal with KU Dining, and put the dollars you’ll save toward movie tickets, a bouquet, or a nice sensible gift, like a singing teddy bear!
KU’s three campus dining centers—Mrs. E’s in Lewis Hall, Oliver Dining in Oliver Hall and North College Café in GSP—will be serving a special menu for dinner on Friday, February 14th. Created with care by the chefs in KU Dining, you don’t want to miss out on a great line up of foodie favorites: grilled KC strip steak, golden brown butterfly shrimp, baked potatoes, fresh sautéed veggies, and a bountiful salad buffet.
After dinner, impressive dessert bars will round out the meal at each of the dining centers: chocolate fondue with fresh fruits, pretzels, marshmallows and brownie bites at Oliver Dining; fresh strawberry pie and decadent chocolate chunk cookies at Mrs. E’s; and Tiramisu, fresh strawberries and an ultimate chocolate mousse cake at North College Cafe.
Those who have a KU meal plan or KU Cuisine Cash are set. Guests of our residents can use a “guest pass,” a benefit of those who have dining plans, or they may pay the $9.50 door price, which is still one great deal.
What!? No valentine? Even if you don’t have a special someone this year, KU Dining wants you to be their valentine and join them for dinner, made with love!
