Join UAB Campus Restaurants in welcoming Chef Laszlo of Hungary as he visits Birmingham. His visit to UAB will include two events in which the school community will be able to try the unique flavor of Hungarian cuisine. 

Monday, October 12th, stop by to engage with Chef Laszlo as he shows off his culinary skills with a demonstration inside the Commons on the Green. 

On Tuesday, students, faculty and staff are invited to the Commons to enjoy a variety of Hungarian dishes prepared by Chef Laszlo. A special $5 lunch price will be extended to faculty and staff who wish to dine in the Commons on this day. 
A national campaign to bring awareness to hunger, UAB Campus Restaurants will team up with the Department of Student Rights, Advocacy and Conduct and Donor to Diner to participate in End It With Orange. All week, the UAB community can donate canned goods in both The Den and the Commons on the Green. On Friday, September 25, students, faculty and staff will be able to donate a meal to a student on campus who may be hungry. Donate and wear your orange in support of bringing awareness and putting a stop to collegiate hunger!
Don’t know what to do for lunch on Friday? Bring the entire department to the Commons on the Green for $5 Fridays! Located on the Campus Green just south of 9th Avenue and the Campus Recreation Center, the Commons is open from 11AM until 1PM for lunch and is the only all-you-care-to-eat facility on campus.
