Would you like a nice dry red on your dry campus? 

For the record: Cal Poly officials are still calling it a dry campus, but it soon won’t be quite as parched. 

Cal Poly is in the process of acquiring liquor licenses to both serve wine and beer at its on-campus restaurant and to sell Cal Poly-branded wine at its off-campus store on San Luis Obispo’s Higuera Street. 

Bonnie Murphy, executive director of the Cal Poly Corporation, said that the newly revamped Sage restaurant—formerly Vista Grande—will soon serve wine and beer with dinner. 

She said the change is designed to attract people coming to campus for events at the nearby Performing Arts Center, which already sells wine, and she stressed that people won’t be able to simply order alcohol, bar-like, at the restaurant without dinner. 

“It still will be referred to as a dry campus,” she said.
Murphy said that wine to be sold at Cal Poly Downtown will be labeled with the school’s brand, and made from school-grown grapes with the help of Cal Poly students through a partnership with the winery Edna Valley.
