Evening Dinners

Join us Friday May 19 and/or Sunday May 21 at 6:30pm 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! <strike>Friday, May 19, 2017 - McMenamins Crystal Ballroom</strike> SOLD OUT<br /> -------------------------------------------------------- * Cost: $35 per person * Location: [McMenamins Crystal Ballroom](http://www.crystalballroompdx.com/), 1332 W.
