Tasting tickets can be purchased online or at the Cashier’s Office (S310). Presale tickets are $6 and tickets at the door are $10.

UHD Employee Event Guidelines

  • Since cookoff team participation requires members to prepare several hours in advance, staff participating on teams do not have to take Vacation Leave between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. during this University-sponsored event.
  • Participating hourly employees should not punch out at 9 a.m. Instead, their managers or TRAM administrators will adjust their timesheets to show work until 5 p.m. If the hourly employee is scheduled to work beyond 5 p.m., they will need to take Vacation Leave for the remaining hours.
  • On April 22, at least one person must be on duty in each department until 5 p.m. to accept calls, receive visitors or transact business, as required by state law.
  • In addition, since this is a University function, alcohol may not be consumed before 5 p.m. If employees choose to drink alcohol before 5 p.m., they must take accrued Paid Leave (Vacation or Compensatory time).
