    ROPEX Awards Presentation


    We're doing things a little different this year!

    The awards presentations will take place Saturday right after the critique beginning at 4 PM. Exhibitors, their family and friends are invited to attend along with show attendees.

    Dinner is on your own that night, as there is no formal awards banquet. But we can recommend Delmonico's Italian Steakhouse, across from the show and MCC at 125 White Spruce Blvd. next to the Country Inn and Suites. It is one of the best casual Italian restaurants in Rochester and a word of warning--be prepared for huge portions! Entrees are in the $12-$20 range. See their web site at http://www.delmonicositaliansteakhouse.com/.

    Here is a list and map of area restaurants within a mile or two from the show.
