      Sorry you are not feeling well. Just got over it myself. Just so everyone knows, it will be BUFFET and not communal.

    Hey Jeff. First of all, thanks for putting this together. This is the first time my wife and I are attending and we love some good Ethiopian food.

    And for the longest time we though Injera was made of rice :)

    I'd really appreciate it if you could put in a request for 2 more GF pieces of Injera for us.

    Thanks and looking forward to meeting everyone.

  • Jeff Olichwier (Realtor for y.

    I will need to know who else would likef gluten-free injera. Just so it is clear, each round (they are made in a round shape to fit pan) consists of 2 pieces (it is cut in half for the typical piece of injera to eat with). Each round is $1.50 extra.
    Thanks!

    December 26, 2013

    • Diana

      3 rounds for me please

      December 26, 2013

  • Sophie

    hello! if i come at 730pm is that ok?

    December 23, 2013

    • Jeff Olichwier (Realtor for y.

      yes, sophie that will be fine. It is a buffet so you should be good if you are a few minutes late too! It will be $3.00 extra for the tef injera.
