Students should not leave and wander around without their chaperones, but they are welcome to go with their chaperones to get food when not playing their rounds.
Breakfast: Bruegger's Bagels is the closest breakfast spot to SSS, where registration and the welcome will take place. Other good breakfast options in the Yale area are Starbucks, Atticus, and Maison Mathis.
Lunch: When each level is not playing its preliminary rounds (1:00-3:30 for Intermediate, 10:30-1:00 for Novice and Advanced), students will have time for lunch.
Options include Chipotle, Panera, Claire's Corner Copia, Ivy Wok, Shake Shack, and Junzi Kitchen. Further options are available with a simple Google search. Each student should bring at least $10 for lunch.
Dinner: Schools arriving on Friday, as well as those sticking around after the tournament on Saturday, might consider eating dinner in the Yale area. Popular options for Yale students include Yorkside Pizza, Five Guys, Wallstreet Pizza, Salsa Fresca, and Tomatillo. Other, somewhat more upscale options, include Prime 16, Tarry Lodge, Temple Grill, and Zinc Kitchen. Also highly recommended by our staff are Arethusa and Ashley's for ice cream.
It is also possible that the Yale Certamen staff will arrange an outing to a restaurant on Friday evening, offering the opportunity for students to learn more about Yale and the tournament. If this is the case, more information will be sent to teams who have indicated they will be arriving on Friday.
