We are pleased to announce that the costs for the following meals will be covered by funding support from the Hintz Family Endowed Chair in Communicative Competence.
Coffee and Bagels
• we will serve coffee and bagels on the 3rd floor of Ford each morning at 8 am
• there will also be bottled water available throughout the day
Lunch – Au Bon Pain
• We will walk from Ford Building to the Au Bon Pain in Kern Building for lunch each day. You are welcome to select your lunch items ( and afternoon drinks) at Au Bon Pain, and then we will have a special cash register line for ThinkTank attendees. Please be sure to “check out” in the appropriate line (i.e., with David McNaughton)
Dinner – Nittany Lion Inn
• We will meet each night for dinner at the Nittany Lion Inn. If the weather allows, we will eat on the outside patio. Please come to the reception desk for the Nittany Lion Inn Dining Room at 5:30 each night, and you will be directed to the patio. We will be asking you to pre-order your dinner each day ( so we do not overwhelm the kitchen), and we will also ask you to sit at an assigned place ( again, to assist in a timely food service). More details will be provided during the Introduction presentation on May 16 at 2;30.
