Dinner at Nature's Express

Hi, fellow plant munchers,

This time around, I'm posting plenty early. Note that we'll meet this time at 8:00.

Did you think vegan fast food was a contradiction in terms? Nope. Nature's Express has been dishing it out since 2010. They serve all kinds of burgers, wraps, burritos, sandwiches (Reuben, "tuna"-melt, or BLT, anyone?), plus plates and smoothies—even gluten-free cookies. Yum! I probably shouldn't write these when I'm hungry.

And get this: Nature's Express was the first restaurant in North America to have a fully non-GMO menu verified by the Non-GMO Project. No renegade DNA in my food, thank you.

I hadn't scheduled a Meetup at NE only because I knew their seating was limited, but just for us, they're going to let us eat there after their usual closing time so we can use all the seating they have. (Aw-w-w, isn't that nice?) That's why we're meeting at 8:00.

Still, space is limited, so please don't respond yes unless you *know* you can attend. There's usually room at add yourself late, so it's better to wait until you're sure rather than not show or change your response less than 24 hours before the event. If you do either twice, you'll be removed from the group. I really don't want to have to do this, so please be respectful of the restaurants, me, and your fellow members.

When you arrive, check in with me so I can mark you "present" and give you a name tag.

Also, please chip in a couple bucks, either on the Meetup site or at the event, to reimburse me for Meetup fees, and to help keep the group going. Thanks a bunch!

See you at dinner,


P.S. If you like art, you can check out (or better yet, buy) some of my night photography at SLATE contemporary gallery tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 6, 6pm-9pm) during Oakland Art Murmur. The show runs through Oct. 5.

    Interesting evening - very good food - I can see myself going there for lunch, if I'm in the area. I'd like to try other dishes - had the Einstein burrito and the collard greens. Where was Eileen?

      Sorry Leda! I couldn't make it at the last minute. My apologies to all as its my favorite vegan fast food place. I left flyers for you all. Next time! But if you have questions about the Walk, you can contact me directly at [masked].

    Hey John, I am still coming tonight, but my husband came down with a cold so he will not be there. I wanted to let you know there would be one more spot available. No worries I will pay for his spot too.

    I love this place!.... and the owners. Very wonderful people. The food is so creative... healthy fast food, that is fast, and taste like fast food but not the knarly kind that has all kinds of trauma built into it. I will try to join but am not sure yet, thus, I'm not replying yet.

    I can't attend but I love this place. This was where I decided to be 100% vegan!

    I'd love to join but all my plans of hanging out with this group have been cursed so far! =/ Have an office party on the 19th, so, not sure if I'll be able to make it to this one either.

    • Shine

      Ugh, just realized I have something else on this Friday. Cursed, indeed.
