Vegan Dinner at Lao Laan-Xang

Lao Laan-Xang serves Laotian cuisine and they make an effort to offer a nice variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Our previous dinners have been among the best our group has had.

Our completely-vegan menu will be served family style and includes the following:

Starters
Spring Roll (gluten free)
Lettuce, cucumber, bean sprouts, carrots, mint, parsley, tofu, and somen noodles. Served with house sauce.

Spinach Soup with Fresh Ginger (gluten free)

Cucumber Salad (gluten free)

Entrees
Mango Curry (gluten free)
Potatoes, squash, broccoli, pineapple, fresh mango, and tofu simmered in coconut milk, red curry, and peanut sauce.

Saucy Mock Duck with Ginger Garlic Sauce
Mock duck stir fried with fresh vegetables, sliced ginger, and garlic sauce.

Khua Curry Sai Phak (gluten free)
Stir fried broccoli, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, string beans, and zucchini, with coconut milk and tofu.

Dessert
Sweet Sticky Rice and Fresh Mango
(gluten free)

Beverages
Water and hot tea are included. (Wine, beer, and soda will be available for an extra charge.)

The $15.00 fee includes the tax, tip, and everything mentioned above (except the noted beverages). That breaks down to about $11.00 for the meal, plus tax, tip, and a little to cover the meetup.com and PayPal fees. Lao Laan-Xang is giving our group an incredible deal. A meal like this would normally cost over $30 with tax and tip!

RSVP/Payment Info:
Pre-payment is required to RSVP (see exception below). Meetup.com automates this process when you pay via PayPal. If you want to pay by check, contact me and I will give you my mailing address. I will manually update your RSVP as soon as I receive your request, but since our events fill up quickly, out of fairness to other group members I will remove the RSVP if the check is not received within four business days.

Special honor system exception: If you have been in the group for a while and have a history of attending and paying for events without any problems you can contact me about paying me at the event. This accommodation is provided as a convenience -- you are still responsible for paying even if you do not attend

Important Note: I will manually update the RSVPs of people who pay by check or use the honor system, but it's possible the event will fill up before I check my email. If that happens I will add you to the waiting list.

Fee Disclosure:
The $15.00 fee includes a little extra to cover PayPal's fees (74 cents) as well as Meetup.com's $144 annual cost.

Refund Policy:
If you cancel on or before Friday, February 8th you will get a full refund. There are no refunds for cancellations after the deadline or if you do not show up to the event. If something comes up at the last minute you are welcome to find someone else to attend instead of you. The reason refunds are not given after the deadline is that I agree to pay for everyone who has paid me at that point.

What about kids?
Kids 8 and under pay $7.50. Young children who will only nibble off of your plate can attend at no charge. Please note in the comment section of your RSVP if kids will be joining you.

This is a vegetarian group. Why is the dinner vegan?
This group has members who are vegetarian, vegan, and just interested. Everyone is welcome. I think it's important for our events to have a menu that not only has something for everyone, but where everyone can eat everything.

    FYI: Tuesday night there is an event next door at the Barrymore at 7:00pm which is likely to be well attended. Due to the proximity of the time and space coordinates of the two events (ours and theirs), Meetup attendees may want to allow a little more time to find parking. There are some parking areas nearby if you cannot find street parking. Here is a Satellite view of the area with some parking areas highlighted: http://logoless.com/LaoLaanXangParking.jpg

      Darn. We scheduled the dinner for today because there was nothing going on at the Barrymore. They just added this event.
