Dinner @ Amanda's Fonda (Colorado Avenue location)

Let's welcome in Spring with dinner out on the (heated) patio in the private back room at Amanda's Fonda on Colorado Avenue!  I'm working with Cindy, the manager, and we will provide a special vegan menu for ordering (or order vegetarian straight from the restaurant menu).  They will allow separate checks.

Apparently pitchers of margaritas are half off from 4pm to 6pm so I plan to arrive early to get a few pitchers on the table.

    We had a great time! The food and company were excellent! Thanks for your time and effort in planning this meetup, JL. Your helpful "ordering cards" made it very easy to narrow down all the vegan and vegetarian options. Great idea!

    Just noticed that this was at the Colorado Avenue location. That's a little too far south to make on a weekday.

      That's too bad, Don! Sorry to miss you tonight.

    Oh, just read that we will be inside, after I wrote the previous message. Am personally glad. Looking forward to the fun of dining with everyone....

      Between the possible snow Tuesday and high winds Wednesday we thought inside would be best!

    my husband found out he's off Wed night so he wants to join us at Amanda's. Just an FYI- it's supposed to be 50 in day & 30 at night-reckon it will be in 40's so dress in layers even though there are heaters on patio. Save me a warm spot please!

    It will be great to be aware of sneaky items put into Mexican Food...like the rice. I didn't know it was made with chicken broth!

    Went there for lunch today and couldn't really find a lot of meatless options, so I'm curious and excited to see the vegan menu. The hubby wanted to order about half the menu because it looked so good to him. So when I told him about this Meetup, he really wanted to join. Is it okay if he orders meat there? If not, I'll just leave him at home to spend some quality time with the "kids". ;-)

      my humble opinion is -it doesn't feel right someone ordering a meat dish at a vegetarian event. My husband has gone back to eating meat after 24 years a vegetarian and he wouldn't think of ordering meat unless it was just the 2 of us. I love the spinach enchiladas...they are not vegan. JL, thank you so much for going the extra mile putting the menu together. I have always refrained from the rice which is silly to add chicken broth..... at least the black beans are vegan.

      They don't put lard in the refried beans, either, Sharon! (yay) But I will have a vegan item list for everyone which should make it easy.

    JL I have a class that night. I didn't have the class schedule when I RSVP'ed yes. Have fun for me.

    Unfortunately, I have to cancel. I've decided on a last-minute trip to Germany, because my grandma hasn't been well. She sounded like she's ready to give up when I last talked to her, so I'm leaving this week still to see her. I'm sad I'll miss this. I'm so curious about what they'll put on the menu. Will someone take a picture of the menu and post it? Thank you!

    • JL F.

      Manuela, I'm so sorry about grandmother. Safe travels and best wishes to you and her.

      I'll take pictures :) Honestly, I am the one who is putting together the vegan menu. I'm going to sit down with the manager and come up with simple ways to order vegan and print them up for everyone. Ordering vegetarian is easier but the rice is made with chicken broth. I'm hoping to convince them to make rice that we can all eat!

      Savor your time in Germany with your grandma, Manuela. We'll be thinking of you!

    I hope I am in time for the half priced margaritas. I have a class until 5:20.

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.
