So its the first “Thirsty Thursday” of the semester, and many students who were not on campus last Spring Term have no clue…
So heres the skinny…
The Dice Drop Down below the menu board at The Grille as a visual clue to those in queue without a clue. The dice act as the signal that we are nearing the end of the business day for the Grille. The kitchen stops taking orders at 2:00 AM. After 2 AM, we will sell for a limited time and while supplies last – cookies, drinks & any slices of pie that are baked off and available to sell.
If you see the dice you may also notice a sign similar to the following:
Are you lucky?
The Grill stops taking orders at 2:00 AM.
Waiting in line at this hour of the day is a gamble, and
you may run the risk of not being served.
Much like rolling the dice, if you’re lucky, and things roll your way -
you just might win.*

Take it from one who knows (T.G.G.) -
Just as in Vegas, the odds are in the house’s favor, so if you want to ensure you do get served obseve the following points:
- If you find yourself in line when the dice are down, know what you will order before you get to the cashier.
- If you find yourself in line when the dice are down, remind the person in front of you to know what they are ordering.
- If you find yourself in line when the dice are down, be prepared to pay promptly – have your card or cash available.
- If you find yourself in line when the dice are down, encourge the patrons in front of you to have their card or cash readily available.
- If you find yourself in line when the dice are down, resetting your watch won’t make any difference to the kitchen.
- To avoid finding yourself in line when the dice are down, slip away a drink or two earlier.
- If the point above is likely to escape you (as it has me before) take out your cell phone now - no joke, right now while your reading this - and program the alarm to ring at 1 AM so you will remember to get to 14 Old Chapel Road before those with no clue about dice start to queue.
Most of all “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”
