    Miscellaneous

    1.) City Café closing pushed back

    The City Café location at the Health Sciences Center, scheduled to close by July 1, will remain open a little longer. UofL and City Café have agreed to a contract that will keep the restaurant open until July 31 or until construction begins on Au Bon Pain Bakery and Café in that same space. The university is awaiting issuance of a construction permit. Once the permit is obtained, the university will provide five days’ notice to City Café, which will then close. Au Bon Pain is expected to be open for business in early Fall 2016.
