    Hi Louis, is it too late to see if I can place a to go order for my husband? I asked him if he wanted to go when this was first posted and he said no, then today as I was telling him about the menu he said he wanted a plate. I'll understand if it is too late and they have been notified of the number of participants. See you tonight!

    • Louis V.

      I don't think it would be a problem!

    Ooh, I'm just seeing this and might be able to go. Looks like an awesome menu.

    Sosta Cafe doesn't have a high chair. Kool Kidz won't accept our 13 month old baby. Other childcare programs accept older kids only, so my hubby can't come tonight. He has to stay at home to take care of Calvin. It'll be just me.

    • Louis V.

      Hi Xchel! We'd love to have you, I just want to let you know that there isn't much of a kid-friendly menu. I'll see if I can get it posted prior to the meetup to help you decide!

      September 6, 2013

  • Helene

    Will there be a gluten free and soy free option?

    September 4, 2013

    • Louis V.

      Hi Helene, I am going to try to get a menu ahead of time. I hope to have it by the end of the weekend!

    Chris and I will be there! We'll leave Calvin with a babysitter this time around!

    Such an amazing deal and opportunity. Sosta was one of the first restaurants to offer a dedicated vegan/vegetarian menu in the city 7 years ago. It's very nice for Jerome to open his doors after hours to celebrate our group. Please be sure to tell your friends and invite a guest. Let's hope for a packed dinner engagement, good times, great tasting food, and the hopes that Jerome will do this again for us in the future!

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.
