There's a tradition of the veg*ns at the conference getting together for a meal. Pittsburgh has lots of good veg food. You don't have to be veg to come, but you should plan on ordering veg food wherever we go ;)
See VegGuide's Pittsburgh listings for some options.
* Maggie's Mercantile I've never been there, but it sounds good, though possibly a little pricy. It's right in Oakland. Keep in mind that lunch on Wednesday is only an hour long.
** I like the look of Maggie's and the location is better than the others considering our time limitations. user:nikolao
*** Ok, so let's go to Maggie's. We can meet in the courtyard outside the University Center a little after noon, I guess? Adri Mills
*** It turns out I'll already be in Oakland at noon, so ideally I would meet y'all at the restaurant. Interested parties should perhaps get my cell number (ask in person or on IRC, before 11am) so we can coordinate if need be. Adri Mills
* China Palace One of my favourite veg-friendly restaurants in Pittsburgh. It's a ~15 minute walk, and wicked cheap.
* Spice Island Tea House I've never been here, but Dave suggested it for the anti arrival dinner. It's also about a ~15 minute walk. Tried to go for lunch on Tuesday, and they were *packed*, so this may not be the best option.

Hm, I think at this point, I'm only free on Wednesday for lunch, but if that's too late, then by all means go whenever works best for everyone else :) Adri Mills
The LGBT get-together is Tuesday lunch and there's been talk of doing a Parrot hacking session over dinner Monday. Wednesday lunch works for me, at any rate. =) Rick Scott (shadowspar)
I'm down with Wednesday lunch. user:nikolao
