Monday 9/16 – San Sai Japanese Grill

A long standing local sushi and Japanese grill hot spot that doesn’t break the bank. Rice bowls, noodle dishes, sushi, salads, meat and seafood plates, and more. Great kid friendly options (my picky kids love it), happy hour, and speedy service. It’s San Sai’s first time participating; let’s give them an extra special Chapman welcome and represent.  Back 2 School night is the following day so order take out a day early to make life run more smoothly. 

1650 NW 23rd | 12 – 11 PM

Tuesday 9/24 – Ruby Jewel Ice Cream Shop

Fun and whimsical space serving ice cream sandwiches, ice cream scoops, and sundaes. Easy quick walk from Chapman. Gift cards from here are a great birthday present or surprise staff with some ice cream sandwiches in the staff freezer.
