Hi, fellow plant munchers,
UPDATE: Souley Vegan's credit card machine broke, so the night of our event will be cash only. Please come prepared.
We haven't been to Souley Vegan in a while, and it's a popular place with this group, so let's go back.
As you probably know by now, Souley Vegan is a vegan soul food restaurant. On the menu are Southern-fried and BBQ and 5-Spice tofu, burgers, yams, greens, lentils, mac and "cheese," potato salad, combo platters, and a bunch more. In other words, Southern comfort food. Yum! The portions are generous and it's all delicious. One time I ordered a large combo meal, and it came on two plates! I felt like Henry VIII.
Here's something you may not know: Souley Vegan sells Grab and Go prepared foods at the restaurant, plus at Berkeley Bowl and a few other venues. Now they're looking to greatly expand the availability of their prepared foods line, into Whole Foods and even nationwide. And they could use our help. Check out their fundraising campaign and consider helping out this local, minority- and woman-owned vegan business, as I have.
Please don't respond unless/until you're sure you can make it. And if your plans change, please change your response at least a day in advance so someone else can come.
When you arrive, check in with me so I can mark you "present" and give you a name tag, and chip in a couple bucks to reimburse me for Meetup fees and to help keep the group going (you can also pay on the Meetup site). Thanks a bunch.
See you at dinner,
