The workshop reception will be hosted on Monday July 31, 2017, along with the poster session from 16:45 to 19:15. Light snacks will be served and a cash bar will be available for purchase of drinks.
Join us Wednesday evening for a casual dinner at the Rayback Collective. Come sample the best of the Boulder craft beer scene (wine and cider also available), and food from some of the best local food trucks. Drinks and food are not included in the registration fee. Since the dinner is self-pay, there is no need to sign up prior to the event. Families and significant others are encouraged to join us. We have organized buses leaving the UMC (University Memorial Center, where the talks are held) at 18:00 to transport workshop attendees to the Rayback. Bus pickups back to the UMC are scheduled for 20:30, 21:00 and 21:30.
Lunches and Coffee Breaks
Lunches are on your own. There are two main lunch options on the CU campus: the UMC (University Memorial Center, where the talks are held) and C4C (Center for Community) offer buffet-style lunches. If you purchased the meal plan during registration, your lunches will be at the Alferd Packer Grill at the UMC or the C4C. If you did not purchase the meal plan, you can still eat at the UMC or C4C (credit or debit card only, no cash). Through the CU housing registration page you can sign up for the “Commuter Meal Package” only, following the instructions. The cost is $43.30 for four lunches (Monday through Friday). The University Hill neighborhood (“The Hill” for short), across Broadway from the UMC, also has many restaurants. See the maps and “Places to Eat” section below for more detail. Coffee breaks are held in the vendor area of the UMC. Light refreshments and snacks will be served at each coffee break.
Places to Eat
Boulder is a food town, with restaurants scattered throughout its neighborhoods. Many are clumped in the areas listed below. For specific recommendations, ask a local.
This is the closest set of restaurants to the UMC, with an emphasis on cheap, quick lunch options, skewed toward the student lunch crowd.
Pearl Street Mall
This pedestrian mall at the heart of downtown Boulder contains the highest concentration of restaurants, with more fine dining spots than other neighborhoods.
29TH Street Mall
The Twenty Ninth Street mall has a number of shops and restaurants, with the latter skewed more towards fast food and fast casual dining. In addition, there are many restaurants on or near Arapahoe Ave, especially near Folsom and 28th Streets.
