VSDC Restaurant Visit – Ethiopic

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

Restaurant: Ethiopic is a highly-rated Ethiopian restaurant on the H Street corridor that serves several vegan dishes, including two vegan samplers. Visit their website to look at their menu and find out more about the restaurant:

Note: Please be on time. We must clear the table by 6:30 p.m.

RSVPs: 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.

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: We have asked for separate checks, but the restaurant may not be able to accommodate our request. So, please bring cash and be prepared to pay for your own food and drink should we have to split the bill, remembering to include tax and tip (suggested rule of thumb 30%).

Metro station: Ethiopic is located about ½ mile NE from the Union Station metro stop (Red line).

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 online. 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.

    I apologize for canceling at the last minute. I've had a headache all day and I wouldn't be good company this evening.

    Edward Laios will be attending instead of me. I'm assuming that since I'm first on the waitlist this will be okay.

    I'm not able to meet at 5pm today. It's the holiday weekend and I thought the event was earlier. Will we eventually go back to an earlier meetup time?

    See you next time.
