Meatless Monday Dinner - Eat Thai Food to Help the Environment

Enjoy meat-less cuisine! Pacific Thai has exotic and flavorful soups, salads, spring rolls, curries, boba teas, Thai iced coffee and tea, and much more!

This is a smaller restaurant with very good Thai food. Please be patient as they have a smaller kitchen than some of the other restaurants we've visited, but it's worth the wait!

Eating with friends is fun, and even more fun if you're helping the environment at the same time. Reducing animal product consumption helps to reduce your personal contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and climate forcers, including carbon dioxide, methane, black carbon (soot), nitrous oxide, and tropospheric ozone. Plus, eating more veggies is good for you!

RSVP required. We'll make a reservation, so please RSVP and show up if you plan to go. To make our events successful, if you have three no-shows, you won't be able to RSVP for the dinners anymore (it's nothing personal).

Hope to see you there! Multiple meetup groups are attending. If you'd like to meet more people than you're seated next to, please feel free to walk around and introduce yourself. There will be people with a variety of eating styles at the event; all we ask is that everyone be respectful and kind to each other.

What Is Meat?

This is a question I have been asked. For clarity, it is the flesh of animals (kingdom Animalia) as used for food. Feel free to look up this kingdom if you like; for example, it does include fish and various sea creatures.

    This was my first event with the group. I really enjoyed the food and the people I met. I would also have liked to meet the people at the other tables, but I'm not sure how this could have been done very easily. Thank you for organizing this!
