WordCamp Kent  is truly a national event, drawing people from distant lands like Southern California and Texas.  Some are even coming from as far away as Pittsburgh and Michigan.  Whether you’re coming from near or far, we want to make sure you find a great place to eat lunch on Saturday.  To that end, here’s a rundown of some great local institutions that are a quick walk from our venue.
