Dinner Groups

Although there are numerous restaurants in Seattle and conference attendees are certainly free to make their own arrangements for dinner, many attendees—especially those who are on their own—enjoy the opportunity to be part of a pre-arranged dinner group.

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, August 3–5, dinner groups will depart from the hotel at various times to restaurants within walking distance. Conference attendees who wish to participate will sign up at the hospitality table when they check in for the conference. Spaces are limited at each restaurant, and reservations will be made for these groups.

Included below are the restaurant options.
