Dear friends,

We now have a mailing list with more than 60 OKFestival participants that we believe will be taking part in the Open Development stream!! I'm really looking forward to meeting all of you! You can check out the #OpenDev program on http://okfestival.org/open-development/  but the stream is not only about sessions and hackathons - it's also about socializing! :)

You're all welcome to join these two evening dinners:

Monday evening at 19.00 (tonight!) we have reserved tables for 30 people at Restaurant Iguana on Mannerheimintie 12: http://www.iguana.fi/en_kellari.html
Our tables are in the basement of the restaurant so ask the waiters to show you the way down there if you don't find it!
We have a list of who's planning to come on http://is.gd/6JVZvq but we think there will be enough space for everyone who would like to come.

Wednesday evening dinner at 20.00 at Restaurant Zetor on Mannerheimintie 3-5 is our big #OpenDev meetup! We have reserved tables for 36 people and 36 people have already signed up on http://is.gd/GYKqkf !! We suspect that there are still people that would like to come so Mika and I went to the restaurant today, and there are quite a few seats in the bar (perhaps another 36?) but there you won't get table service but will have to order your food in the bar. Anyhow, it is the same menu and prices at both areas though.

So what we will do is to have a "first come first served" policy for the 36 seats on the reserved tables who are located in a room in to the left behind the bar. The rest will (hopefully) get somewhere to sit out in the cool bar. We’ll have lots of company as there is be another  130 people who have booked the rest of the restaurant. So it won’t be necessarily ‘fast food’ but there is a lot to discuss, so we’ll manage well!  Don't come too hungry though! ;)

It turned out you don't have to decide in advance what you want to eat. You order from the waiter (if you're one of the first 36) or in the bar side.
Unfortunately, we don't have any budget left for sponsoring people's dinner so you will all have to pay for yourselves. Unless anyone of you feel like sponsoring at least the dinners for our 16 travel bursary guests! ;)

Oh! Another thing: There's a 2.7€ entrance fee to get in to the restaurant / bar. Hopefully ok for everyone!

Speaking of food… I have bought 60 lunch vouchers in advance that you can buy from me for 8 € if you want. If you want to eat lunch at the OKFest venue, it will be really good to have lunch vouchers - it means you will be in a shorter queue… The price is the same as if you buy it directly there.

You can find different options for the rest of the evenings on http://okfestival.okfnpad.org/evening-programme

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Warm regards,
