Prices increase on August 16th.


There will be two meals served.

  • Friday night buffet dinner: $45.00 USD

Please consider purchasing meals with us. This has several benefits:

  1. Convenience: Ensure that you are not running around for your dinner between sessions.
  2. Fellowship: You can enjoy the company of your OA fellows.
  3. The food fits all food plans. Here is a copy of the menu.
