Summer Conference – August 12-15, 2013
Mealtimes are an important part of the OCW Summer Conference. Not only are we feeding our bodies, we are also feeding our spirits, our careers, and our companionship. It is a time of food, fellowship, fun, and networking, dining with fellow conferees and our amazing faculty.
As in the past, conferees and faculty will have the opportunity to eat together at lunch and dinner in the communal dining area. The cost of lunches and dinners from Monday evening through Wednesday evening is included in your tuition.
Conferees will be “on their own” for breakfast. Commuters usually choose to eat at home prior to the conference start time.
If you are staying on-site at the Red Lion Jantzen Beach Hotel, there are many options available:
Each guest room is equipped with a microwave oven and small refrigerator. Feel free to bring your own breakfast fare for preparation.
The Jantzen Beach Cafe & Espresso Lounge, located in the main lobby, opens at 6AM and offers coffee drinks and breakfast items, including muffins and pastries.
The hotel also offers a full service restaurant that serves breakfast from 7AM to 11AM daily.
There is a Burger King restaurant across the street from the hotel, as well as a nearby Safeway grocery with an in-store Starbucks. Denny’s is another nearby option.
