We had a totally awesome inaugural Vegan Friday lunch at Jill's and I feel sorta giddy from the high of it. Of course, the people are always great, and there were many new folks that I hope will become regulars. But The Food! The food was just gorgeous and delicious and wholesome (i would say low and no oil in most dishes ) and there were tons of gluten-free options and the entire shebang including a chocolate fountain!!!! was splendidly VEGAN!! I never even got to taste the pasta offerings (they'll have gluten free next week) and only had two of the four desserts!;-)
If you attended today please take a moment to write a comment on the meetup page so that I can pass on to the management of Jill's so they know there is a lot of support for this vegan effort.
We really want this to succeed far beyond what the Jill's people can even imagine. The rippling effect of this are gigantic. Not only from the vegan offering standpoint but from the impact it will have on other businesses that might be thinking about doing vegan offerings in their own way and the staff that works with only plants and no animal bodies or excretions. The staff (that was very good, btw) was enthralled with the whole "vegan thing" and three of the cooks kept saying how much fun they had. All of this is so educational in a big way. We want them to know vegan offering has some fire behind it. And it is only $11.95 for all you can eat, with pretty much endless offerings.
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported this inaugural and historic boulder vegan happening.;-) am i being too melodramatic? i don't think so!
I will be making it an official meetup for the next month and maybe more if there is enough demand.
For vegan community,
