Pepperdine Restaurant Day July 29

Pepperdine Restaurant Day

The most delicious day of the year returns on Thursday, July 29, 2021! Come together with your local Waves family to celebrate food and fellowship! As restaurants around the nation are recovering from a year of uncertainty, let's support our Waves family in the food & beverage industry by ordering take-out, delivery, or dining in (where available).

With nearly 80 restaurants across the country participating, we encourage you to search the list below to find a restaurant near you and bring the whole family! Be sure to share your delicious eats by tagging us on social media using @pepperdinealumni or #PepperdineRestaurantDay
