Snacks and Catering:

All food and beverages will be served outside the hacking room, in the hall. Please have a look at the schedule to check when the main meals are served. You will need your meal tickets, which you will get at the MHD registration desk (not the Sónar registration desk). The snacks and (hot and cold) beverages will be available during the whole 24h hacking session.

Sleeping or Taking a Nap:

During the night, If you feel a little bit tired, or sleepy, you can either go to your accommodation outside the Sónar building (but be aware of the access schedule, as we mention before); or you can bring your own sleeping bag and sleep some hours in the hall (if you want to go back to hack earlier).
