Ithaca offers many fine restaurants where you can
catch dinner before the dance. Here's a couple of us
which offered the best Vietnamese food in town before it closed.
Dancers often wind down after the dance at a
local late-night snack-and-talk establishment.
The location is announced during the dance.
