Exclusive VSDC Food Tasting Party

  • Sep 27, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is a VSDC exclusive event - you are invited and it's FREE!

VSDC has been asked to give feedback on the hot and cold vegetarian bar by the VA and MD division of Wegmans.  They have planned an exciting night of tastings and more - the chance for us to give feedback in what we're looking for when dining out.  The food tasting event will be all-vegan and no cost to attendees - a VSDC exclusive for you. 

This is a great opportunity to influence options for what we want because their goal is to hear how they can better serve our needs.  And then their everyday shoppers will benefit and be exposed to more vegan choices too that are delicious, compassionate, healthy, and sustainable.

The event will be held fom 7 to 8 pm on Thu, Sep 27, at the Wegmans in Fairfax VA:

11620 Monument Drive, Fairfax, VA  22030

 

We need an exact count by Mon, Sep 24.  If you sign up, we expect you to attend because there is limited seating and they will prepare food specifically for our group.  So clear your calendar and sign up early!

Note: they work in an open kitchen where cross-contamination is possible but they will take specific measures to ensure that does not happen.

    Excellent. Wegmans really made an effort to do a good job, and the food was outstanding. The room they provided was private and comfortable. They even decorated with balloons featuring cute cartoon vegetables. The quantity of food they provided was a nice surprise - I expected just small tasting portions, but they served us full dinners, with unlimited seconds. All in all, it was very nicely done.

    Great pictures Mark! Now you made me hungry. ;-) FYI for those of you who live in Rockville/Germantown area, Wegman's told us that they're building a Wegman's in Germantown in Spring 2013. Counting down the days!

    Next time, a good list of directions independent of Google, etc., would be helpful. I was staying 15 minutes away and I STILL got lost with Google directions. It's the 50/236/123 mess in Fairfax that can really trip people up. Took me near 45 minutes to get it right.

    re: Donnita's comment: yeah, that "total abandon" person got around to a lot of us!

    RE: the photos I posted. High-res full versions available to those who e-mail me directly. This photos were taken quickly, not a whole lot of time to post-process, and I've tried to include only those that won't embarass anyone (can't believe he was dancing on the table!). Wonderful and marvelous event! Outstanding food AND Outreach effort. Kudos to all who worked so hard to see it happen.

    What a great idea - food was good and nice turnout from the veg community! Will be nice if they start labelling the vegan items.

    Wegmans did an outstanding job presenting a variety of delicious vegan dishes available in the store. (Garlicky greens, yum!)

    Fantastic! Great food, great event. I don't drink tea and would have enjoyed a selection of other beverages such as soy milk and other milk alternatives (almond, hemp, etc.) and juices.

    Well, I got lost, as I alway do when going to Virginia. There was no way that I could make it before the event would be over, so I returned home. Sorry! :-(
