PSS: evelyn’s in empac expands business hours

THE EXPERIMENTAL MEDIA AND PERFORMING ARTS CENTER AND HOSPITALITY SERVICES AT RPI ANNOUNCED the expansion of hours for Evelyn’s Café. Beginning Tuesday, January 22, the café will be open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11 am–2 pm, in addition to supporting public events. The menu will be seasonal and will focus on locally sourced items. “This expansion of café hours makes EMPAC an exceptional gathering space, providing opportunities for a meal with colleagues or a snack before or after a performance in the special atmosphere of the building. We hope to continue the expansion into the morning and evening hours in the future. And we are pleased that the daily offerings include ‘eating local,’ a unique menu on campus,” said Johannes Goebel, director of EMPAC. “We are committed to showcasing local and sustainable ingredients to create a seasonal contemporary menu for our guests,” said Elaine Reynolds, Hospitality Services marketing director. Evelyn’s will continue to be open one hour before all curated events, during intermissions, and after most performances. Rensselaer’s student-run, sustainability-focused Terra Café will be serving lunch on Wednesdays.
