The Mac ‘n Cheese Affair
Faculty Club of University of Alberta
Friday, Feb. 27 at 5 p.m.
$50

The good life is being able to scarf down bowls of mac ‘n cheese in formal wear while helping fund the Campus Food Bank. The student group will be hosting its mac n’ cheese night for the seventh year in a row and will feature drinks, a silent auction, and all of the macaroni you can get your hands (use a fork, please) on. It’s a little pricey, but it’s going directly to helping feed your less fortunate peers. Be a good person, dress like you know what you’re doing with your life, and eat your face off.
