This will be the first of several posts about where to find food while you attend STITCHES South.
The convention is in the Cobb Galleria Centre and Renaissance Waverly Hotel. The Galleria does have a speciality shopping area and there are a few restaurants right there on site. You can also find more information at the official site for the Cobb County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Firstly, let's remember that there are several eating opportunities during the convention. If you are taking The Works or Almost the Works, you already have these. Other attendees can register for these as well:
Thursday lunch from noon to 1 PM, right after the spotlight with Elise Duvekot.
Friday fashion show at 6:30 PM followed by dinner at 8 PM.
Saturday student banquet at 6:30 PM and student fashion show.
Secondly, remember the basics for attending any convention -- bring a no-spill thermos/mug and pack a few granola bars. We don't want anyone surviving off Cheetos and diet Coke. If you don't keep your blood sugar at a good level, you'll be frogging your classwork. Nobody wants that.
Your choices on site:
Chow Baby -- a create your own stir fry restaurant near the main entrance to the Galleria
Jocks and Jills -- a sports bar, located near the entrance by the parking deck
Subway -- national sandwich chain, located in the mall center, near the escalator
China Sun Express -- Chinese & Thai carry out, and Asian ice cream, located in the mall center, near the escalator
Espresso Bar -- a coffee and snack stand, located in the mall center, near the escalator
There will also be concessions on site in the market and expo area.
And there is a Coca-cola machine in the downstairs hallway that leads back to the hotel.
