Guess Who's Coming To Dinner * We’ve hand-picked some of this area’s gems of eateries, so bring your spirit of adventure and a healthy appetite, and enjoy a great meal while making new friends!

After you sign-in for the conference, you’ll choose a restaurant for dinner (we will have menus on-hand for you to look at). Once a group of 4-6 random people have chosen the same restaurant, you’ll go to dinner together!

(*This meal is not included in the registration fee. Cost will vary by restaurant and your meal selection.)

Escape Rooms You and your group will be locked in a room. Using your brainpower and elements within the room, you will work together to find clues, solve a series of puzzles, and race against the clock to escape the room before time runs out! Tick, tock, tick, tock...
