Beer and Dogs at Chauhaus

Beer and Dogs - Where the working world has its Friday “five o’clock whistle,” the GSD has its six o’clock beer and dogs. Sponsored by the student chapter of the ASLA, hot dogs, pizza and cold beer are served in the Gund Hall cafeteria. Anticipated equally by both faculty and students, Beer and Dogs is an opportunity for the GSD community to end the week in a social and relaxing environment. And for 1 dollar per hot dog and two bucks a beer, it also makes for an inexpensive dinner.
