This will be our group?s third ?Raw Second Tuesday? dining event at the Green Owl. This will also be our group?s last formally scheduled evening at the Green Owl for a while. We certainly appreciate the Green Owl making the effort to provide raw dining here in Madison on the second Tuesday of each month, and we will continue to informally promote whatever they do with raw foods.
At this time I do not have the raw menu items the Green Owl will be serving - that information will be updated when I receive the details; check back on the description for this event in the coming days for more details.
A few guidelines:
Dinner Reservations: please RSVP as you normally would via this Meetup description and this will serve as a sort of ?dinner reservation.? I would ask that everyone be very conscientious about their RSVP'ing. If you have planned to come but find that you won't be able to join us after all, please update your RSVP accordingly as soon as possible. Also, in the comment section of your RSVP, please indicate which of the menu items (once we find out what they will be) you plan on ordering. This will be very important so that we can give The Green Owl a good estimate as to how many people to expect which will then allow them to do their purchasing and preparation in advance in accordance with this estimate. The Green Owl will be setting tables aside for our group in the back of the restaurant and would like to be able to plan for this as well.
Payment: we strongly encourage everyone to pay by cash or check. Secondly, we also encourage everyone to pay as a group at the same time, and if you have to leave early and that is not possible, please leave your payment with another group member. Typically restaurants do not allow groups of our size to have separate checks for individuals and we want to work with the Green Owl on this matter. We would like to keep this kind event as informal and relaxed as possible for this and possible future events (another option that I would prefer not doing would be to set up payment only through PayPal and if you changed your mind about attending at the last minute, you would then forfeit your payment, as is the case with the The Madison Area Vegetarian Meetup Group ). Also, please keep in mind that the Green Owl automatically adds an 18% gratuity to all checks for groups of our size, in addition to the 5.5% sales tax.
Their regular menu, of course, will be available too for anyone who wants to bring anyone whose tastes might not necessarily be along the raw lines.
