Where can I eat lunch and dinner?

Fat Sparrow Group of restaurants is offering our attendees a 25% discount when they dine at Taco Farm, Marbles, or Harmony Lunch on International Women’s Day! This discount applies to lunch before the conference or dinner after. The afternoon conference ends at 6 PM and the evening event begins at 7:30 PM, leaving you time to go off-site and get dinner if you like.

Taco Farm, Marbles Restaurant, and Harmony Lunch are all conveniently located within less than 10 minutes of walking distance from the CIGI campus where the Know Better, Do Better conference is located!

This discount is only available to attendees of our conference and only when dining-in at these locations on Friday, March 8th. You must show your ticket at the restaurant to prove you are attending and you must quote the discount code when ordering. Please contact us at maritcollective@gmail.com to ask for the code – we will verify that you have purchased a ticket.

We suggest you make reservations in advance for either lunch or dinner to ensure you are seated promptly with space to get back to the conference on time! =)
