​​Let us take care of your Thursday night dinner reservations by signing up for a dine-around. Each dine-around will be hosted by a WSSFC speaker or planning committee member and will take place at one of many top-notch restaurants in Wisconsin Dells. Enjoy stimulating conversation over a delicious meal while making new friends.

Signing up is easy. Simply stop by the Solo/Small Firm & General Practice Section booth in the Legal Expo to choose your preferred dine-around. Stop by early, though. Space is limited and last year’s dine arounds filled up quickly!

Attendees are responsible for their own dinner bill. Spouses or significant others are welcome, but please plan to leave the kids at the hotel.
