Al Fresco logoImagine a warm summer night in the garden, dining on tables that are hand-crafted by LCC Construction Technology students, enjoying platter after platter of food that has been harvested from the garden beside you, uniquely infused with Ninkasi Beers and prepared by Culinary Students. Hospitality Management students welcome you as you arrive, take care of your every service need and execute the event flawlessly. For the first time, Al Fresco! invites the community into the Learning Garden to explore the grounds, experiment with beer and food pairing and enjoy an exquisite outdoor meal.
