Cornell Welcome Block Party - A Taste of Cornell!

Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 5:00pm to 8:30pm

North Campus

Come enjoy music, food, and entertainment as we welcome all freshmen and transfer students to campus with our annual Block Party!

We'll be serving a Taste of Cornell in both Robert Purcell Marketplace Eatery and North Star Dining Room. We suggest going to RPME if your mail room is in RPCC, and North Star if your mail room is in Appel Commons.

In addition to an amazing dinner at each location, we'll have entertainment including music, henna painting, photo frames, balloon animals, and more.

Each station in the two dining rooms will feature a different Cornell Dining Chef from around campus, with featured specialty dishes, so you can get a taste of what these chefs will offer throughout the year.

Some examples are Beer Battered Haddock, Hickory Smoked Prime Rib, Grilled Vegetable Lasagna, Ramen Bowl with Pork Belly, Taco Bar, and Blended Sliders at RPME; and Quinoa & Cranberry Stuffed Peppers, Coffee Braised Beef Brisket, Chicken with Kale Pesto and Penne Pasta, Wok Mussels in Black Bean Sauce, Pizza Margarita, Vegetarian Tabasco Burger, and Island Style Calypso Steak at North Star.

North Star Dining Room will have both our Kosher Station (104North) and our Allergy Free Station for the Taste of Cornell dinner.

Just bring your ID and your appetite; you'll swipe your ID card for dinner. Members of the Cornell community not on a meal plan are welcome, but will pay the door price.
