I expect to see many of you tomorrow at Registration or at the picnic, and the rest on Thursday. Here’s to a great conference!
If you are an afficionado of Jazz, or just like good live music, Rochester is in the midst of its annual Jazz Festival. Get information on tickets, acts and venues here.
The SUNYLA 2010 Program is now available. Because of our green initiatives, the full program will only be online. At check-in you will receive pages 1-6 and there will be packets of session descriptions available; however, we’re hoping that you’ll either save the file electronically or share any paper copies with friends.
Below are links to the Conference Google Calendar with Session listings and tentative room assignments.

You will find on the map references in the May 17th post “Create your own diversions”, a number of local eateries. Some are the ubiquitous chains the sprout like mushrooms in the path of the travelling public, but there are also many unique and worthwhile local eateries, should you want to take in a meal on your own or with a group of friends. Some Drake library staff favorites:
58 Main and the Brockport Diner (also on Main St.), which both do good lunches. Stoneyard Bar and Grill is on Main Street right next to the canal. Weather permitting, you can eat outside. They’re open for lunches and dinners, with a full bar and some yummy sandwiches and fries. The Golden Eagle, at the junction of Rtes. 19 and 31, gives you large portions, homemade, and a number of healthy options. Back to Main St., Java Junction has great coffee (fair trade), homemade pastries and desserts, and wonderful salads and paninis, with free wi-fi to boot. Colleen’s Cafe does great breakfasts, if you want to get off campus for a breakfast one day; they open around 6 AM. Jimmy Z’s Texas Hots has all the usual hot dog/hamburg fare, plus some interesting additions–try the jambalaya. Mythos Cafe is a small Greek restaurant with a peaceful ambiance and great food. If you are up to a bit of a drive, Rohrbachs is a local microbrewery that is worth visiting for the beer and the wursts; they are at 3859 Buffalo Road, about 15 minutes east and south of the campus.
