PyCon Dinners

**New for PyCon 2016:** The dinners are not concurrent so you can attend both! Join us Monday May 30th and/or Wednesday June 1st at 6pm after talks for great food, great company, and great speakers! If you are new to PyCon, this is a great opportunity to make new friends early on in the conference. Both dinners have an audience participation aspect designed to get people talking — which we hope will be especially valuable to first-timers at PyCon, which was 60% of attendees last year based on the post-conference survey! If PyCon is already an annual event for you, then you know that the conference continues with great conversations long after the talks end for the day — so pull up a chair!
