Planning Ahead? Here Are The Con Suite Menus!

The Con Suite is WisCon’s hospitality suite. Its mission is to provide good, nourishing food in order to improve convention accessibility for everyone attending. When we talk accessibility in relation to the Con Suite, we mean several things. The Con Suite improves financial access, helping attendees who are stretching their dollars. It improves mental and emotional accessibility, allowing attendees who just want to take food somewhere quiet to do so with minimal interactions in the process if they need that. It improves physical access, allowing attendees to get meals without walking additional distances. And the Con Suite improves dietary access by providing a range of foods with gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and vegetarian options, as well as posting information about the presence of common allergens and other ingredients.

We do all of this with volunteers, and we need your help! See what volunteer shifts are available here: https://signup.com/go/LCshkGa If you have any questions about volunteering in the Con Suite, please email us at consuite@wiscon.net.

On to the menus!

First up: The Grab & Go Space! This one is easy because it doesn’t really have a menu. There will be portions of many of our side dishes available there on ice throughout the convention, and this is also where any leftover donuts and bagels will go after breakfast each day, once we have individually wrapped them. The Grab & Go is also where you will find coffee, tea, sodas of many descriptions, a variety of chips, cookies, granola bars, string cheese, and more. The Grab & Go opens Friday at noon and every morning thereafter at 8am, and it closes at midnight Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and then at 5pm on Monday.

And the main event: The Con Suite Commissary Space! The Commissary is only open and serving at mealtimes, but is a seating-only space 9pm-1am Friday and Saturday, and 10pm-1am Sunday.
