SLIG will open with its traditional networking reception on Sunday evening. On Friday, we wrap up our week with a no-host bar social hour followed by the Completion and Awards Banquet. Both of these events are included in the cost of your registration; guest tickets are available for a fee.
To start the morning off right, SLIG will provide a breakfast voucher for each day of the program, Monday through Friday. The voucher may be exchanged for your choice of one bread and one drink at the Starbucks take-out counter, or you may choose to apply the value of the voucher ($6) to the breakfast buffet or a menu item of your choice at Trofi restaurant. We hope this will provide you maximum flexibility.
Dining in the Hilton:
The Trofi Restaurant serves breakfast daily, while the Starbucks take-out counter remains open through lunch and offers a limited selection of sandwiches and soup. Hilton is also home to Spencer’s for Steaks and Chops. Voted “Best Steakhouse” for eight consecutive years, a USDA Spencer’s steak is a mouth-watering experience. Also awarded best “Wine List,” Spencer’s includes a bar/lounge area for more casual fare.
The Hilton is within a short walking distance of a variety of restaurants, including the Olive Garden, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Macaroni Grill, PF Chang’s, Benihana, Market Street Grill, and Squatter’s Pub, just to mention a few. You will find everything from sushi to cheesesteaks within a two-block walk. The TRAX line located one block east of the Hilton will help you expand that distance to the either the City Creek or Gateway food courts, the Temple Square restaurants, and many other options.
