It's been three years (!) since we've been to Golden Lotus in Downtown Oakland, and people seem to like it, so let's go back.
If you've never been to this Vietnamese-Chinese vegan restaurant, consider coming to this meetup. There are lots of mock meat, tofu, and vegetable dishes, with delicious sauces. Specialties include the ever-popular Caramelized Chicken. There's also Thousand Layers Tofu Eggplant (possibly an exaggeration), Broccoli Beef, and literally dozens of others. Yum!
It's very easy to get to, just steps from the 12th Street BART station, at the corner of Franklin and 13th streets, a block east of Broadway.
Please don't respond yes unless you *know* you can attend. It's better to wait until you're sure. I've removed several people from the group who didn't show. Don't be one of them. If something truly unexpected happens, update your RSVP right away so someone else has a chance to go.
When you arrive, please check in with me so I can check you off my list and give you a name tag.
And please chip in a couple bucks to reimburse me for Meetup fees, either on the Meetup site or at the event.
See you at dinner,
