Conference Eats, Local Dining, and Bowling

Conference Eats

Breakfast and lunch on Friday and Saturday are provided at the conference; appetizers will be provided at the Thursday night reception; dinner will be provided at the awards banquet Friday night. Coffee and snacks will be served during afternoon breaks.

There will be vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options at each meal. We will also accomodate any other requests made when participants registered for the conference. If you'd like to peek at the menus, they are available below (PDF).

Local Dining

We encourage you to explore some of our fantastic local eateries! Please see our local dining guide: CWcon_local_dining.pdf (adapted from a dining guide created by the Cultural Rhetorics Conference organizers).

Friday-night Bowling

Following long-standing C&W tradition, there will be BOWLING on Friday night after the awards banquet: the banquet is from 6:30-8:30pm. Bowling will be from 9:00-11:00pm at Spare Time in Lansing. We have our very own private lanes, and bowling (shoes, balls, lanes) will be free. 

There will be a cash bar (96-ounce beers are Spare Time's specialty, and they have a huuuuge list of draft beers) and food is available to order. 

Spare Time is located at 3101 E Grand River Ave in Lansing, MI 48912, about a mile and a half from the Kellogg Center. This is not a walkable distance because of traffic and lack of pedestrian-friendly walk ways. We strongly suggest carpooling or taking an Uber or Lyft.
