A Shared Experience: A Traditional Ethiopian Meal

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than sharing a communal Ethiopian feast? Traditional Ethiopian dining consists of shared dishes, eaten without utensils using injera, a spongy flatbread, to scoop up the tasty bits! One of the better Ethiopian restaurants in town is Mahider. Here's a link to their menu:

There are many delicious vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. The combination plates are a great way to try several dishes at once!

If we reserve in advance, we can also partake in an Ethiopian coffee ceremony. During this ceremony, coffee beans are freshly roasted, then ground and brewed into an excellent drink.

For this event, we will limit the group to 10. Hope you'll join us for a unique and delicious ethnic meal!

      Steve, where am I on the list? I know I am supposed to herd cats at BTG but should a spot open up - I will send you my phone number via private email and I can swing on over. I really want to try the coffee service for sure!

    A final reminder to those planning to go to Mahider on Friday---I need positive confirmation from you that you're still planning to go by the end of Wednesday or I'll open up your spots to those who signed up later. So far, Jackie W, Jay, Praneeth and Melinda have confirmed. Katrina, Nick S, Sarah, Veronica, Kathryn, Jared, Monte and Jennifer, you're on the clock! I will open up any remaining spots to others on the RSVP list on Thursday.

    I'll back out from this one too. Too many beef dishes on the menu. As a religious & Dietary restriction I cannot consume it. I'll look forward to the upcoming events.

    Just heard about this group. Happy to join in on the 14th, it will be fun and sounds like it will be quite tasty!!

    This sounds like a great type of international cuisine! I would love to attend, however, I didn't see a "maybe" option on the RSVP so I may have to reschedule if my trip to Las Vegas during that time is a go. I will certainly give you plenty of notice before the firming up of plans are made. Sure hope to join this event since I missed the last one. Keep you posted.

    I'm new to this group. This sounds amazing. I'm pretty sure I won't have plans on Valentine's Day this year, so this could be a fun night.

      Your birthday is on Valentine's Day? The only worse circumstance would be having a birthday on December 25th!

      It's not all that tragic. Just another day, another year. My sister-in-law was born on Xmas and she feels the same way.

    A little far off on the calendar but I'll go if I can. I like sambusas...yum!

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.
