What to eat at our holiday show

Shopping really works up an appetite, so we’ve got a variety of great food vendors at our holiday show coming up on Saturday, Nov. 19. We’ve got sweet and savory, familiar favorites and new flavors! Plus, the cafeterias at the Rec Center and elsewhere on UC’s campus will be open, so you can grab a snack or a soda there as well. You can see directions to campus and a map here.
