Temaki opening date changed

While Temaki Tea was originally set to open after spring break, the new opening date will be sometime during May 2011, Greg Minner, director of dining services said. The new Temaki Tea will be located at 1422 Presque Isle Ave.

It’s still an ongoing project, but Jim Thams, associate director of engineering services and grounds, said that they’re getting to ready go through and inspect the building for anything that needs to be fixed.

“If there’s anything that needs to be corrected, it goes on the list,” Thams said.

Kitchen equipment and booths are expected to be delivered within the next couple of weeks, Thams said. The patio of the building has to be done as well, but the weather has to break first, Thams said.

Drinking basics to be discussed

Whether you drink or not, knowing the basics about alcohol and its consumption is important.

“Beer and Booze 101: Back to the Basics” is a SkillBuilder! led by Lenny Shible and will inform students about the daily role alcohol has in their lives.  Topics will include terminology definitions, blood alcohol content calculations and symptoms of different alcohol related situations.

“While a lot of students are pretty knowledgeable, some students could use a reminder of the basics,” Shible said.

Students may have heard much of the information before, but Shible’s goal is to readdress the issue of alcohol in a way that may help students rethink their impression of alcohol.

“The hope is that anyone that comes to the workshop will gain skills to help themselves and their friends” Shible said.

This SkillBuilder! will be held Friday, March 18 at 10:30 a.m. in the Back Room of the University Center.  This event is free and open to the public.
