Wednesdays on the Mall, a barbecue on Glenn Terrell Mall featuring local live musicians, returned this week for the first time since 2019. 

The series continues from 11:30 a.m to 1:15 p.m. on July 21 and 28, said Amy Gibson, WSU Dining Services catering sales manager. 

Chris Siple, Dining Services executive chef, developed a menu for the three Wednesdays. This week started with street tacos. July 21 will be street hot dogs, and July 28 will be kebabs. All meals are served with a side dish, cookie and beverage, Gibson said. 

“I [am] excited about these menus because they aren’t your traditional hamburgers and hot dogs,” Gibson said.

People can pay for their food using the GET Mobile app or at a Carlita’s register in the Compton Union Building. Dining Services is looking for ways to accept payment on Terrell Mall, but nothing has been finalized, she said. 

Student Entertainment Board invited three local musicians, according to WSU Insider. Willy Jay Tracy performed Wednesday. Andru Gomez will perform July 21, and Spencer Batt will perform July 28.

Over 180 people attended the first event. Gibson said she hopes to see more people attend over the next two weeks.
