Lunches during GS/TT

Enjoy a lovely private lunch with GS/TT participants, Carolena, and Megha in the hotel’s private dining room. Since there aren’t any restaurants within walking distance, we have arranged for you to enjoy a relaxing lunch at the hotel restaurant. Lunch will include soup and a salad bar with meat, vegetarian, and vegan options. The salad bar will be much more than your traditional lettuce and dressing. We will have a huge spread of types of salads and protein options to top off your plate.

Lunches (optional) are $25 each and can be purchased when you register for GS/TT.
