    I came to Rash Dashen but found the location was changed. I didn't want to park again so I left. I didn't get a notice of a change of location.

    Met some nice like-minded people. Food was fair. People were better than the food.

    In case some of you have not gotten earlier email:

    There has been a change in location for the Ethiopian buffet event, as Ras Dashen has notified us that their stove is suddenly not working and cannot be fixed until later tonight.

    They/we have arranged for the event to be held a few blocks away at Ethiopian Diamond, where the same menu will be offered for the same price.

    Ethiopian Diamond is located at: 6120 N Broadway, Chicago, tel. [masked]

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding!

    Looking forward to still enjoying delicious Ethiopian cuisine with you all tonight!

    1. Please consider to bring an exact change ($15) as it will speed up collecting the money.
    2. Some of us will head up for a movie after the dinner:
    3. I won't be able to reply to any messages on this board from 11:30am to after the event.

    Looks mouth-watering. I love injera bread! Thanks for scheduling on a Saturday so that it's easier for those of us who drive in from the burbs.
