Formal dinner for attendees

28. June 2011.

Dear attendees,
Formal dinner will be held tonight (28th July) in one of the buildings in the Government complex. I have attached the map of the exact location of that building. It's not far from the venue and can be reached by foot in less than 5 minutes. The restaurant is located on the 14th floor and can be reached with two elevators. The building and the restaurant are handicap accessible, with many parking spaces near the building. The food is being prepared for every chosen preference, so vegetarian and vegan dishes are included as well. First round of drinks are for free, after that you'll have to pay if you'd like another one (except water, obviusly).
If you'd like you can join the group of attendees in front of Banski Dvor who will go by foot there, but make sure you come before 19:45, as we'll head to the said building at that time.
