Hello, hungry ones,
As you know, Thanksgiving is Thursday of next week. Symphonie hasn't come up with its menu for the day yet, but I thought I needed to post an event sooner rather than later. The other option is Souley Vegan in Oakland, which will have some special items plus their usual menu.
I try to run this group pretty democratically, so I set up a poll to ask you where you'd like to eat. It turns out both restaurants will also be open for Christmas, and while they haven't finalized their Christmas menus, I'd like you to vote on where you'd like to eat on both holidays.
Meetup doesn't allow formatting in polls, so all the text wrapped together. Here is the formatted poll text, so you can read it more easily. When you're done, please click to vote in the poll
I need to make a reservation soon, so please vote now. It will only take a minute. Thanks!
This year, we have a couple choices for Thanksgiving. Please read these descriptions, and vote in the poll
By the way, we'll likely have a Christmas Day dinner event, perhaps at one of these restaurants.
