Hortencia’s serves beer, wine in café

By Samantha Rendon


Students returned from spring break to find Hortencia’s Café is now serving beer and wine from noon weekdays until closing.

Java on the Hill on the fourth floor of the McCombs Center has been serving alcoholic beverages for a few years but its availability at Hortencia’s is a new offering.

Students of drinking age must consume any drinks on the premises of Hortencia’s Café or the lounge right next to it. For those living on campus as long as the drinks are secured, you will be able to take them back to your dormitory.

Marketing has been low-key except for a sign at Hortencia’s, Sodexo General Manager Tony Allen said. “I’m not pushing alcohol on anyone. “It’s just being offered as a courtesy to the university.”
