Dinner at Golden Lotus

Hi everyone!

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,

    What a great group of folks!:) Sorry to miss this one! Hopefully I will join all of you at next month's event. In the meantime, we are looking for a Walk for Farm Animals Co-Coordinator for this year's 2013 Walk, and want to remind folks about Vegan Earth Day in April where Gene Baur, founder of Farm Sanctuary, will be speaking about the ecological and animal reasons to choose to eat vegan:)

    My eating habits have improved mightily the last few years, focusing on fresh fruits and veggie drinks, grains/beans and only fish. I may be ready to take the leap!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
