The Whole Foods store in Lake Grove has an eating area with lots of chairs and tables, and the food bar is quite vegan-friendly (vegan items are clearly labeled, ingredients are listed). You'll pay by weight. My total usually comes to $10-11.
As with all VLI meetups, please follow VLI's policy that "at VLI meetups, the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness." (In other words, we expect everyone to bring only vegan fare to the table. Even if you or your guests don't think of yourselves as "vegan.")
We'll be hanging out in the eating area from 7 til 8:30 (the store closes at 10). Feel free to arrive anytime. Be aware that as it gets later in the evening, they may run out of the more popular food bar items.
NOTE: Whole Foods offers durable bowls, but not durable utensils. So how about we all bring our own forks to avoid using a new plastic fork? I bring my own water bottle, too.
Hope to see you there!
(The gatherings at Whole Foods are less formal than restaurant outings, so the RSVPing is a courtesy to the group, just because it's nice to see who else is planning to come. But it's not problem if you can't make it, or if you decide at the last minute to drop in. If you want to reach me there, call or text[masked]-5108.)
