Enjoy meat-less cuisine! This restaurant has a huge selection of vegetarian rolls and other Japanese food. We'll be in the aquarium room surrounded by colorful fish!
Eating with friends is fun, and even more fun if you're helping the environment at the same time. Reducing animal product consumption helps to reduce your personal contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and climate forcers, including carbon dioxide, methane, black carbon (soot), nitrous oxide, and tropospheric ozone. Plus, eating more veggies is good for you!
Some chemicals and heavy metals can concentrate in meat when animals are exposed to it, such as in their food. So reducing meat consumption through Meatless Monday can be one way to reduce exposure.
We'll make a reservation, so please RSVP and show up if you plan to go. To make sure our events are a success, if you're a no-show three times you won't be able to RSVP for the dinners anymore (it's nothing personal).
Hope to see you there! Multiple meetup groups are attending. If you'd like to meet more people than you're sitting next to, feel free to walk around and mingle with other tables. There will be people with a variety of eating styles at the event; all we ask is that everyone be respectful and kind to each other.
