The main reason to come to the XNAT Workshop is of course learning and talking about XNAT. But you can only do so much of that on a daily basis and everyone has to eat. So we have a few evening events scheduled for after the daily sessions!
There will be an XNAT Workshop dinner on the evening of Monday, June 25, at Wildflower Restaurant. Wildflower is conveniently located right off campus and a short block and a half from the Parkway Hotel where many conference attendees are staying.
Create Your Own Mexican Fajita Buffet (Buffet style, serving from 5:30-9:30pm)
- Beef or Chicken
- Prepared with onions, red & green peppers
- Guacamole, sour cream, shredded lettuce, grated cheese, salsa, warm flour tortillas
- Dessert: Cinnamon Churros
There will be an open bar serving sodas, tea, and coffee. Nearby we will have the following appetizers:
- Crab Cakes with a Chipotle Aioli
- Sesame & Wasabi Tuna bites with a ginger & soy dipping sauce
- Spinach Artichoke & Feta stuffed Phyllo
There will be a cash bar in which you have to pay for any alcoholic beverages you order (because of issues with the terms of grant funding for many of our events, we can't cover the costs of alcoholic beverages).
There will also be an XNAT Happy Hour on the evening of Tuesday, June 26, at Brennan’s. Brennan's is also nearby, a few blocks further into the Central West End.
Food Stations (Food will continue to be served for the duration of our event, from 5:30-9:30pm)
- Chicken flatbreads
- Veggie flatbreads
- Margarita flatbreads
- Hummus, tabouleh platter
- Roasted vegetables platter
- Fresh fruit
- Meat and cheese platters
As with dinner on Monday, because of grant funding, we can't cover the costs of alcoholic beverages.
Lastly, on Thursday evening, there will be a much more informal happy hour get-together for those attending the XNAT Developers Workshop. This will be non-sponsored and free-form. Location, time, and duration to be determined by the ambitiousness or lack thereof of anyone who might want to attend! This could be walking distance again or maybe we'll load up into cars and get away from the immediate area to some of the other destination locations in St. Louis...
