It's a holiday tradition for us to eat at Long Life Veggie House for Christmas. Long Life is itself long lived, having survived over 40 years. They have a variety of faux meat, tofu, and vegetable dishes. (They also serve real seafood, so make sure you're looking at the right page of the menu because we all order vegan when we eat together.)
And hey, they're open on Christmas! We'll eat early enough that you can also enjoy a later meal with friends or family.
Long Life is very easy to get to; it's just steps from the Downtown Berkeley BART station, on University Avenue at Shattuck.
If your plans change, please change your RSVP at least a day in advance.
And please chip in a couple bucks to reimburse me for Meetup fees, either on the Meetup site or at the event.
You probably won't hear from me until January, so Happy New Year!
P.S. I'm a freelance copyeditor and proofreader. If you know of a nonprofit foundation that could use my services, please hook us up. Your reimbursements will be waived for life. Thanks a bunch!
