You attend rigorous classes daily, study for hours on end, and when you aren’t in class or studying you are trying to catch a few z’s. So this weekend, why not indulge a little bit.


Instead of snuggling up to your books in the library, how about you take a few hours to indulge yourself with artisan cheeses, delectable chocolates and some fabulous wines from around the world. Enjoy live musical entertainment by Jason Walsmith of The Nadas as you browse the galleries of West End Architectural Salvage. Here are the details:
