Need dinner plans? Yelp can help!


Through all of the talks, tutorials, open spaces and more, some of the best parts of PyCon are the meals. Especially dinner! Each PyCon ticket gets you catered breakfast and lunch at the conference center, with lunch being a great way to refuel and sit down at a table and meet your next project contributor, business partner, or friend. Dinner, however, is a meal you’re on your own for. Not to worry, because with 1500+ people needing to head out for dinner, there’s never a shortage of groups on the way out for a burger, pasta, falafel, beer, wine, you name it. Some people even use PyCon sponsor Yelp.com to find their dinner destination.

This year Yelp has stepped up as a sponsor for food! Not only will they help you find a destination, they’ll be giving rides to a few of the area’s highly rated restaurants. On Friday and Saturday night, Yelp will be renting several buses and driving conference goers to these select eateries, giving you a chance to get out and have a good meal with good company. The details are still being ironed out, but it looks like there will be around five buses each holding approximately 30 people. Yelp plans to send along one of their developers on each bus as an ambassador, and they might bring some nice swag as well!

As for getting on the bus, sign ups will be announced on site on the first day of the conference. You like what you see? Sign up and enjoy! Be sure to sign up on site - first come, first served.

Schedule-wise we’re looking at departure around a half hour after the day’s lightning talks are over, so about 6:30-7:00. We’ll certainly announce a more accurate time during each day’s morning session. Once you’re there, you’ll have 2-2.5 hours to spend at the restaurant and in the area. After that, the bus heads back to the hotel where you can join back up with the festivities. You’ll be back just in time for the evening’s open spaces and BoF sessions!


Bon App├ętit!
