October 25 – 28, 2018
As always, we look forward to bringing you a massive feast throughout the weekend. In addition to salty, sweet, and savory snacks; soda/pop, wine, wine coolers, and beer; and our 24-hour salad bar, all served throughout the weekend, you can expect the following meals at the listed times (please note slightly different times than in the past):
We know that Mensans love to eat…all the time, day and night. We will have snacks available 24 hours a day, including:
For our friends with food allergies and sensitivities:
We will do our best to have a vegetarian option and a gluten free option available at each meal. If it is not clear, please ask. Please note: We are preparing food in a shared hospitality prep area and serving buffet style serving a large crowd using volunteer and hotel staff. We cannot guarantee that items are free from cross contamination. Ingredient lists will be available on site. But if you do have severe/life-threatening allergies, we recommend you take precautions to minimize your risk since our volunteers focus on replenishing the food, snacks, and beverages and are not trained to address dietary concerns.
We (Susan and Rhonda, the Hospitality chairs) will be around for any questions, comments, and concerns.
No dinner on Saturday?
It’s a regional gathering tradition that Saturday is a separate meal from the RG hospitality meals and offerings. In the past, we offered a banquet on Saturday night, but by popular demand, we have shifted to this being a time when you can plan a meal or outing with friends to enjoy on-site and nearby restaurant offerings. Below is a list of links to some terrific restaurants, sorted by their proximity to the hotel. Visit the links for full menus, prices, and to find out if reservations are recommended (or required). The hotel website also includes a list of restaurants nearby.
