feature a lite breakfast every morning to get you going. We'll have some kind of roll or
Danish, light fare only. If you need a "construction-worker" breakfast you'll
have to eat elsewhere. It will be available from 7:30-8:30 daily. Coffee will also be
served during the morning break (just after the Opening Session on Monday) and from 10:15
until 10:30 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
