Deb Shapiro operates School Woods Supper Club (near East High School), which is dedicated to showcasing locally-grown and organically-grown foods. She organizes her own private dinners and brunches and has also hosted our group for a number of events. Our events there have consistently received rave reviews.
Our completely vegan dinner will be served family style...
Slow-roasted tomato tartines
Big green salad with summer vegetables & vinaigrette dressing
Vegan Lasagna Eggplant slices replace the noodles, with two sauces - white and red.
Chocolate mousse with whipped coconut cream
Mexican chocolate spicy snickerdoodles
Iced Tea, Sparkling Water, Ice Water Guests may bring their own beer or wine. Glasses and a cooler will be on hand.
The $15.00 fee includes the tax, tip, and everything mentioned above. That breaks down to just $11.00 for the meal, plus tax, tip, and a little to cover the meetup.com and PayPal fees.
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.
Refund Policy: If you cancel on or before Thursday, August 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 include all kids in your RSVP and also make a note in the comments..
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.
Refunds offered if:
Additional notes: See the details of the refund policy in the event description.
Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
