Dine Arounds at MLA'19

Will you be in Chicago on Thursday or Friday before the official conference programming begins? Don’t eat alone! Join your colleagues for a dine-around.

All restaurants are within walking distance of 7-13 minutes depending on the location. We have two choices for Thursday and two for Friday, with reasonable (for downtown Chicago) price points and plenty of variety. Groups will meet their host at 5:30pm in the Hyatt Regency lobby, so everyone can walk to the restaurant together.

Are you a member of a chapter? Some (but not all) chapters are hosting their own dine-arounds and happy hour events. For more details, look for messages on the listservs of your respective chapters. The links below are open to all MLA members attending the conference.

Sign up online before all the spots are gone!
