Because there will be no hotel chicken.

Let’s face it, it doesn’t matter where you go, what city you visit, hotel chicken is hotel chicken.


You’ve already heard that this year’s conference experience is going to be different, and here’s another reason why: there will be no hotel chicken.

…and Donuts!

Carpe DonutAs mentioned in our previous #edUWhy post (Morning Zen) we’ll keep the food truck theme going Tuesday morning by bringing you fresh locally made donuts from Carpe Donut.

These guilty pleasures are locally sourced, organic, and cooked without trans fat. They even convert their used fry oil to bio fuel, so their donuts are a guilty pleasure you can really feel good about. In fact, they even won an award for best food truck in Charlottesville in 2014!
