University Dining Services and Catering is happy to attend to your dining needs with expensive food and terrible service!
BG24 News decided to take advantage of BGSU's catering service last Saturday to supply a room and food for their end of the year banquet. The banquet menu consisted of a pasta dinner including salad and breadsticks, a cheese plate and a fruit plate, along with a selection of different pop. The room was located on the third floor of the Bowen Thompson Student Union.
I am a member of BG24 news and it was my job to plan the banquet. I reserved the room and decided on the menu. I picked out the nicest food option-- it was between pasta or sub sandwiches. Each person who attended the banquet had to pay $12 for the pasta dinner.
The banquet was scheduled to start at 7P.M. I arrived at 6:15 to make sure everything was moving along schedule. After waiting about twenty minues, I decided to go figure out why no one had started setting up the room. Someone finally arrived ten minutes before the banquet started to help set up the platters (this was when everyone started arriving). The fruit platter had about four pieces of four different kinds of fruit. The cheese platter was nice! The pasta was ok-- not worth $12. To top it off they forgot to supply the table cloths so our "classy" banquet was more like a picnic--we ate on cheap, dirty plastic tables. We could have gone to a nice restaurant, instead we decided on BGSU's catering service. I should have known!
