Conference Dine-Arounds

When: Thursday, November 8th, and Friday, November 9th, 6 pm – whenever
When: Friday, November 9th, and Saturday, November 10th, depending on how early you want to wake up – 9 am
Minneapolis is home to great food and drink, and what better way to explore what the city has to offer than exploring it with fellow LITA folks? This year we are offering sign ups for both dinner and breakfast, which gives you more of a chance to try new places or old favorites, or perhaps that donut crawl you always wanted to do, but never had the chance to do until now.
Logistics Notes:
  • We recommend groups up to six people for dine-arounds going to sit-down restaurants.
  • Groups are self organizing, so please make sure you have contact information for everyone in your group to coordinate meeting times, reservations, transportation, etc.
  • Conference planners are working to ensure that the restaurants on the list are accessible to all; nevertheless, please feel free to contact the conference planners or the restaurants themselves if you have any accessibility questions.
Sign ups links for each meal time are coming soon.
