Can anyone comment on the dress code for the pre- or post- interview dinners?

I've never been to one, but

I've never been to one, but here is what I was planning on wearing (just a guess). (male)Nice jeans, button-down shirt, +/- casual blazer And if I'm really feeling stylish, I might rock the classic blazer over T-shirt look.

From what I've heard, no

From what I've heard, no jeans.  Play it safe and go business casual, no tie necessary.

PGY1 here.  I rocked jeans

PGY1 here.  I rocked jeans and polo to any dinner at a restaurant or bbq type event (ie vast majority of the time), or slacks and button-down (but no tie) if at an attendings house or if it was a catered event on campus (twice).

 I think it depends on the venue.  I'm not showing up at a bar to drink beer with residents in khakis of any sort - I'll stick with my jeans and blazer, thank you.  If the venue is a hotel or nice restaurant, that's a different story and something dressier might be in order.  I'd consider looking up what kind of place it is first.  To each his own, but I will be wearing jeans at some of them.

I agree, I think jeans are ok

I agree, I think jeans are ok at some places.  For instance I have a few dinners at a resident's house which jeans will be fine for.  And if the invitation says casual dress I think jeans are also fine

never hurts to ask the admin who has put together loads of these things at his/her program over the years

As a current resident, I would not wear jeans. Just dress business casual, unless then dinner/meeting is at a dive bar/pool hall...
