VeganMania After-Party: Polish Vegan Feast, Live Music, Prizes & More!

Many of you remember a delicious Polish vegan dinner at Theresa 2.
This time we will have the same delicious vegan dinner, but also a great musical performance and bunch of prizes!

Menu:

• Appetizers: Cole Slaw (raw), Cucumber Salad (raw), Pickles
• Soups: Mushroom Barley, Dill Pickle
• Entrees: Potato Pancakes, Pierogi (potato, cabbage), Golabki (stuffed cabbage)
• Sides: Boiled Potatoes with dill, Leczczo (Fresh Mixed Vegetables with sauce), Kapusta (Cabbage)
• Drinks: Freshly-brewed Ice Tea
• Dessert: Fresh Fruit

The dinner will be served as buffet style between 8 and 9pm.

Right after the dinner we will have a concert and dancing!

We are excited to announce that Zach Freidhof, whom many of you saw (and had a blast!) at Veggie Fest 2013, will perform for us!

We are also excited to present Preston Klik as our DJ! Many of you may know Preston as a resident DJ at "8:18 @ Unity", "Give Peace A Dance", and "Synphoria", but not many may know that he leads numerous sound meditations every month!

And finally we will have a raffle with a number of exciting prizes!

Price of the event is only $25 if paid in advance on-line or $30 at the door. Save your money with confidence as you may get 100% refund anytime 48 hours before the event per our Refund policy. Advance payment will not be available later than 48 hours before the event. The sitting is limited and RSVP is required either way as the restaurant will prepare the food according the number of the RSVPs.

To make the event even more fun all attendees will receive a raffle ticket to be able to win some excited prizes (TBA)! Additional tickets will be available on sale for only $1 each or 20 for $10 (cash only).

Please bring cash if you plan to pay at the event when you check-in.

WHAT A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY VEGAN DINNER, LISTEN TO GREAT MUSIC, SHARE YOU TIME WITH LIKE-MINDED FRIENDS, AND EXTEND THE CHICAGO VEGANMANIA SPIRIT FOR THE ENTIRE EVENING - ALL IN ONE!

Free parking on the street, or behind the restaurant, or at the Hoyne Bank parking lot (across Giddings St.)

Please invite your non-vegetarian friends to enjoy this evening with us!

Please RSVP before midnight of Sept 18 so we could give as accurate  number of attendees as possible to the restaurant for buying enough food for the event.

    Which of the items included are gluten free (or aren't if its a shorter list)?

    September 18, 2013

    • Vadim

      Greg - I only know for sure that pierogi won't be gluten free but the rest we won't know until the event. However, it will be plenty of dishes (salads, cooked vegetables, etc.) gluten free.
