EclipseCon 2015 Dinner Meetup

This page is to help groups organize for the Dinner Meetup at EclipseCon 2015 and FOSS4G NA. (To see what groups did last year, check out the 2014 Dinner Meetup wiki page).

On Monday evening after the Happy Hour, two chartered buses will provide transportation into Burlingame. The buses will loop between the hotel door by the elevators and the Burlingame Caltrain Station. First departure from the Hyatt is 6pm; last pickup in Burlingame is 9:45pm. Buses leave every 15 minutes.

We encourage you to choose some companions, pick a restaurant, and enjoy dinner with your fellow attendees. Then head back to the Hyatt for Late Night in Knuckles bar.

If you're the plan-ahead type, use this page to organize a group ahead of time and reserve a table for dinner - this list should help. If you prefer spontaneity, hop on the bus, start a conversation, and have dinner with some new friends.)

Here's a suggestion for organizing a Dinner Meetup group. It's a good idea to limit groups to no more than eight people, since many of the restaurants are small. Some of the restaurants can handle larger groups if you reserve ahead of time, such as Il Fornaio, Steelhead Brewery, or Straits.

  • Add your name and contact info as the group organizer, using one of the templates below
  • Consider choosing a theme for your group, such as "Modeling Mavens" or "Microbrew Appreciators"
  • Suggest a specific restaurant and consider making a reservation - this list should help
  • Pick a meeting place and time, such as "at the restaurant at 7:30" or "let's gather at the 7:15pm bus"
