There will be an organized dinner for participants beginning at 5:30 Saturday evening at the Asia Grille (206-517-5985) in University Village Shopping Center, just to the east of campus, a short walk down the hill. This is one of the newest restaurants in the area, serving contemporary cuisine with an eclectic Asian emphasis. The cost will be $17 per person: this includes appetizer, choice of entree (chicken or vegetarian), and dessert. Tax and tip are included, but beverages are extra. If you'd like to attend, sign up on Saturday morning at the conference.
The conference is free to all participants, and no advance registration is necessary.
