VSDC Restaurant Visit – Sunflower Vegetarian (Falls Church)

VSDC is looking forward to spending another evening enjoying vegan food with old and new friends alike.

Restaurant: Sunflower Vegetarian Restaurant is a longtime favorite among local vegans and consistently serves up flavorful Asian-inspired organic vegan food in a comfortable setting, including “mock meat” dishes. Sunflower Vegetarian Restaurant is a member of VSDC’s Green Rewards program, and card-carrying members of VSDC will receive a 10% discount. http://crystalsunflower.com/location/falls-church/falls-church-menu/

RSVP: Since reservations are based on the number of RSVP’s, please do not RSVP “YES” unless you are sure you will attend. Please be considerate of the restaurant, VSDC, and the others who want to attend by changing your RSVP if you are no longer able to come. The restaurant sets aside seating based on the RSVP’s, and it hurts the restaurant and VSDC when people do not show up.

VSDC will check people in as they arrive at the restaurant and only those who have RSVP’d YES will be permitted to sit with the group.

Please note: VSDC cannot guarantee seating if you arrive more than 15 minutes late.

Waiting List: If the RSVP’s are full, please sign up for the waiting list if you are interested in attending. Those on the waiting list will be automatically moved up when someone changes their RSVP.

Payment: The restaurant will provide separate checks for each person. Please remember to include tax and tip (suggested rule of thumb 30%)

Metro station: Unfortunately, Sunflower is not located near a metro rail station.

Accessibility: We want to ensure that everyone can enjoy our events. Please email the event coordinators if you need accommodations for a physical disability.

Inclement Weather: In the event of inclement weather, this event may be cancelled so please check your email beforehand.

*Please help VSDC continue to host these monthly restaurant visits and other events by becoming a member of VSDC or renewing your membership. VSDC is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that is sustained by membership dues. If you are not a VSDC member, you can sign up at the event. You can complete a membership application at the event, or fill it out beforehand by printing a hardcopy from our website (www.vsdc.org) and bringing it with you with cash or a check.

VSDC is a clear and consistent voice for improving the lives of all beings through education on the benefits of vegan and vegetarian diets. Sharing food is the bond that brings families together; so is it with our large and growing family. From simply “breaking bread” to experiencing delicious and nutritious vegan foods from around the world, we make your journey easier, enjoyable & meaningful.

VSDC. Creating communities. For your health, the animals, and the planet.

    I would rather do potlucks, because then at least I know that I can eat my own food.

      OK, so now I am really thinking about doing this ;) It's always a work in progress, but I am happy to share! Thanks! BTW, great conversations yesterday :-)

    VSDC thanks all of you for coming. It was nice to see new and old faces alike. We hope you enjoyed the food and conversation as much as we did! And for those on the wait list, I'm sorry for the last minute bump-up (thought we'd give it a try, in case you could still make it last minute). We hope to see you next time!

    I'm going to end up working. Going to Paris in a couple of weeks every bit helps ;). Have fun !

    Is anyone coming from MoCO that wants to carpool? I got really lost last time I went to Sunflower and I just have bad karma driving to VA.

    Something came up, if someone from the wait list can take my spot I'll not go.

    Sorry, I won't be able to make it after all. Hope to meet you all at some future time... Enjoy!

      Hi Karen, would you mind updating your RSVP to "No" so that a person on the waiting list will automatically be moved up to attend? Thanks!

      May 31, 2013

    • Karen S.

      Of course! Have fun...

    Please free up my two spaces. I fell, broke my glasses. My back and arms hurt (and my pride). Catch you next month Susie and Cleveland. Sorry to miss it.

    June 1, 2013

  • Susie

    Thanks everyone for keeping us posted when your plans change, and changing your RSVP status so people on the waiting list will move up automatically. You're a considerate bunch, and we really appreciate it! Looking forward to tomorrow (especially since Sunflower serves alcohol now! Ha!) :-)

    June 1, 2013

  • Wendy

    Sorry I cannot be there after all. I will be moving home that day.

    May 30, 2013

  • Sue

    I drove past the restaurant today, and a sign in front said that alcohol is now being served. For those of us who like a beer or glass of wine with dinner, that’s good news!

    May 30, 2013

  • Becky S.

    Sorry, I didn't think I would make the list so I made other plans! Catch you all next time!

    Decided to take an all-day hike Saturday. Will meet friends for dinner
    later in the evening. Hope to make the next
    restaurant visit!
