The University of New Mexico Alumni Association is bringing back Diner en Rouge for Homecoming 2018. The wildly popular event started last year and again, asks participants to wear all red, in addition to packing a dinner to enjoy alfresco during Homecoming Week 2018.

This year, Diner en Rouge will be held on Friday, Sept. 28 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. in the Karen Abraham Courtyard at Hodgin Hall Alumni Center. 

Music, entertainment and other special surprises will be part of the evening. Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased by visiting the Alumni website. Space is limited, so RSVPs are encouraged before tickets sell out.

Diner en Rouge is an opportunity to celebrate the grooviness of the Lobo Pack during Homecoming 2018 Wolfstock: Peace, Love and Lobos. 

Diner en Rouge details:

What to wear? Rouge. Come dressed in your fanciest, casual, or spirit gear, but make sure it is red. Best dressed prizes will be awarded. Visit the Diner en Rouge board on the UNM Alumni Pinterest page for ideas.

What to eat? Gourmet picnicking or casual bites, whichever suites your style, just make sure to bring it in a red carryall or picnic bag. Boxed dinners will also be available for purchase. Sign-up for the box dinners with your RSVP.

How to decorate your table? The Alumni Association will save you the trouble of hauling a perfectly sized table, chairs and linen. But, it’s up to you to bring items that will decorate your dining space uniquely. Prizes will be given for the best decorated tables.

Have fun! The night includes special entertainment, music and more. Alcoholic beverages will be provided to guests 21 and older, with valid I.D. Other non-alcoholic drinks will be available as well.
