Dining Choices

We know you like to have an idea of the available restaurants in the area. When you arrive at registration, we will have copies of local area visitor guides, dining guides, and event calendars provided by the Albany County Convention Bureau. But for those of you that are arriving early, we've put together our own guide here. As we confirm the choices in the area, and at the hotel, we will update this list. Check the Thursday newsletter for additional updates.

In-Hotel Eating Choices

Unofficial List of Local Eating Choices
This is a list of local restaurants as listed in the Yahoo! directory. Consider this a flash picture of the foods available. Please remember that this list was put together by Yahoo! and NOT by the convention committee. We cannot guarantee any information on the list. It is provided only as a preliminary snapshot of choices in the area.
Annotated List of Local Dining Options
