On Sunday evening, dinner is on your own. Members of the SSL Board will act as guides to some of Ithaca area restaurants, including the Boathouse, Moosewood, and the Crystal Lake Cafe at the Americana Winery. SSL Board members will meet in the lobby of the Hans Bethe House by 5:30-6 p.m. on Sunday evening for anyone who wishes to go as a group (walk ups should be able to be accommodated but it helps a lot to make a choice ahead of time).

Please let us know which restaurant you choose to eat at so we can let them know approximately how many to expect. They may need to have more staff on duty for this evening. There are close to 115 retreat participants to date!

Please send your choice of restaurants to the SSL Board Member Host for that restaurant; their e-mails are listed below. Directions will be available for those who arrive later and want to go to these restaurants.
**www.moosewoodrestaurant.com** The Moosewood Restaurant is a vegetarian restaurant in downtown Ithaca. SSL Board member Livia Sabourin will be hostess for this dinner. Each person will order off the menu. Please contact livtiv@yahoo.com and let her know if you are interested
so she can call Moosewood ahead of time with an estimate. She will get back to you with a meeting time to meet and carpool over (she has the place in her GPS already!). They do not take reservations so we may have to wait, and we'll be seated in smaller groups as we arrive. (This is a great way to meet new people, so don't be afraid to jump in and mingle with someone new!). Menus are generally ethnically themed and the food is delicious, but potentially spicy. Cookbooks are available for sale as well.

**www.boatyardgrill.com** The Boatyard Grill is a seafood restaurant in Ithaca. SSL Board member Michelle Miller <mmiller@mwcsd.org>
will be hostess for this dinner.

**www.americanavineyards.com** The Americana Winery and Vineyard is in Interlaken, NY, about a 1/2 hour drive from Hans Bethe House. SSL Board member Anne Paulson <paulson@lakeplacidcsd.net> will be hostess. We will leave Hans Bethe House at 5:30 p.m. (or meet us at the winery). We will taste some fabulous wines ($3.00 per person to taste 8 wines) from about 6-6:45 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. at Americana's Crystal Lake Cafe. If you get to the winery earlier, there's an outdoor concert from 4-6 p.m. If you would like to experience great wine and food, please contact Anne asap so she can let Americana know how many people to expect.
