Dinner at Banana Soy Vegan Restaurant

Hi, fellow plant munchers,

We are blessed. Downtown Oakland is turning into a vegan restaurant mecca. Not only has Golden Lotus been there for ages, and The Breakroom, but two new veg restaurants have opened. We enjoyed Nature's Vegetarian a couple months ago. Now let's try Banana Soy Vegan Restaurant. It's Vietnamese, and by all accounts, fantastic. They have classics, such as spring rolls, and unique dishes, such as the Fried Chicken Bread appetizer, roast duck noodle, beef mushroom, and lots more. I'm really looking forward to trying this restaurant. It's earned 4.5 stars on Yelp.

To get there, take BART to 12th Street. Exit the station at 14th Street, walk a block north to 15th Street, turn right, and you're there.

They charge $0.25 for to-go containers, so consider bringing your own.

If your plans change, change your RSVP ASAP.

Please chip in a couple bucks to reimburse me for Meetup's fees, either on the Meetup site or at the event.

Hope to see you at dinner,


P.S. I'm a freelance copyeditor and proofreader. If you know of any organization that could use my services, please hook us up. Your reimbursements will be waived for life. :-) Thanks a bunch!

    Although we were separated, sitting at three tables, plenty of conversation flowed.

    That was fun! It was lovely meeting some new people and connecting with those I've met before. I hope this restaurant does well.

    I certainly don't mind paying $2 to help defray your costs, but what exactly are the meetup fees?

    I excitedly signed up for this MeetUp only to realize I've got a medical appointment in the evening.

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.
