Dine Around

Join us for dinner out in Washington, DC!

The Local Organizing Committee for ETD2017 invites you to join us at some of our favorite dining locations to sample the great food and drink that Washington, DC has to offer. Dinner is on your own, organized in groups. This is an opportunity for a casual night out with other conference attendees to share a meal and some great conversation.

The Dine Arounds will take place the evening of Tuesday, August 8th. A local Washingtonian will be attending each of the Dine Around events and will make a reservation for the group as well as coordinate the where and when for meeting and traveling to the Dine Around location.

Everyone is responsible for getting himself or herself to the Dine Around locations —  by walking, car, taxi or other public transportation. Dine Around groups will meet in the Embassy Suites lobby at 6:00 pm with their group leaders. Each group will take public transportation to and from destinations with their group leaders.

All of the Dine Arounds will involve some walking and all will require you to have a Metro SmarTrip Card. Please purchase a SmarTrip Card online. You MUST have a SmarTrip Card IN HAND when you meet your group leader.

  • Sign up at the ETD2017 registration desk upon check-in the morning of Monday, August 7th
