Georgetown Activities Council (GAC) has a new opportunity for students to expand their tastes by experiencing local restaurants. The Taste of the Month is a newly created, monthly event in which students join together for a time of fellowship and dining. The meal is free and transportation is provided. The first outing was to Tandoor Fine Indian Cuisine and had around 15 participants.

“We had to be taken out of our comfort zone to try the different foods, but we enjoyed it!” said Senior Maya McLin. On Saturday, Oct. 19, the second trip will take place as GAC heads to Bourbon n’ Toulouse for some traditional Creole food. The Lexington restaurant is named after two streets in New Orleans and should be a treat.

McLin explains that, “We wanted to introduce students to different types of cuisine, so we chose restaurants that represent different cultures.”

For more information, students should be on the lookout for informational flyers. A sign-up sheet will be on the GAC bulletin board in the Grille by the mailroom. The sheet will provide more information about the event that will be taking place on Oct. 19.
