March Mini-Meet

Join us for some Kali chops... er, fine South Indian Cuisine at Udupi Cafe for our March Mini-Meet! In January we went Cleveland East side, this month it'll be West side & most likely we'll head South next month.

Mini-Meets are perfect meetups for members both "old" and new to get acquainted and have some great discussion. Some of us went to Udupi after a meetup at Parma Heights Library back in November... food was good, reasonably priced.

See you there! :)

    That was great! The food was great! The company was great! (especially those who I was fortunate enough to sit near) That our fabulous organizers, M+M, can consistently everytime produce a successful event is just great! The whole experience, except, maybe, for the long delay in having our orders taken, was... great! What could be better? // Let's go back, sometime, but on a weekend when certain other folk would be able to go. It would be nice to go for the buffet. I don't remember when that is. Do you?

      Thank you, Suzy. Can we arrange a meetup for some later time?

      They also have a lunch buffet daily, including weekends from 11:30 to 2:30 that includes options other than dosa.

    I love their food! Another great evening with fellow freethinkers. :)

    Good meetup. Good food and good convo though limited in scale due to the setup of the tables. I would certainly go back though service was not as attentive as it should have been! Thanks Mark and Marni for putting it together, and Ram for advance scouting!!!

    Thank you Marni! Ian & I truly enjoyed ourselves. Fantastic to meet you all.

    Wonderful toseee so many CFT's. Too bad I couldn't speak to everyone. Just those at the end of my table. Nice non the less :)

    Sorry, forgot to say it was also great meeting Brenda, Ian and Ed!

    This was a great meetup - sorry for the slow service for some of us - I don't think they were quite prepared for such a large group all at once, especially with only one cook! But the conversations and company as always were wonderful, and it was great meeting Avtar and his wife!

    Ok- reservation is in my name in case anyone arrives early. I told them 2 adjacent tables instead of one looong table, I hope that's ok with everyone.

    March 6, 2013

    • Maude

      I'll be arriving late, after HandsOn, but I'll be there!

      March 7, 2013

  • Sam S.

    Sorry can't make it.

    March 7, 2013

  • Maude

    So, I go to my HandOn volunteer thing tonight and RACE back this way, dodging all the nasty pot holes on Cleveland streets, and arrive at Udupi at about 8:15! I was pleased, figured I could still order and sit with you guys. It was a little busy because of the Tuesday night Dosa buffet (vegetarian) but, no CFTers!!!! And that's because everyone is going Thursday, not tonight. Just thought I'd demonstrate my scheduling skills by sharing this.

    • Marni H.

      Awww, so sorry Maude! Hope the HandsOn thing was good :)

      March 6, 2013

    • Maude

      Well I'll try again tomorrow. Sorry I didn't see you Ram!! My brain was fixated on looking for a large group. How was the dosa buffet? I'd love to try that one day too.

    Does anyone know the gluten situation at Udupi? I tried to get an answer via phone a few times and perhaps it may have been due to a language barrier - but I could not get a clear answer, even when I simply asked about wheat and dairy.

      I went in today and had a chat with the Owner/Manager. They have a few dishes on their menu that are already vegan and gluten-free. And they can on request modify several more to be vegan and/or GF. Unfortunately, these dishes are not clearly indicated in the menu so you would need to ask them to point out those dishes. Of course, if I am around, I would be happy to help you order the right stuff. :-)

      Thanks, Ram for taking the time to inquire at the restaurant!! Also, thanks, Lisa for the link...good idea!

    Sorry, but I won't be able to make this one. BooHoo!!

    Love to know the 411 on GF menu items here. But work schedule makes getting here on time difficult. Next time!

    One day, I'm going to be able to participate in these events. :( Just another year or so, and I can miss a bedtime here and there!

    March 4, 2013

  • Tim C.

    Yeah, this could be doable!

    March 2, 2013

  • Margot J.

    Hope you send a reminder!

    March 2, 2013

  • Maude

    Wah! I'd love to be there but will be volunteering with HandsOn until 8:15. If you are still there at 8:45 I could stop by though.

      We should still be there.
