HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT LAST NITE TO OUR BEAUTIFUL CHICAGO RAW HOLIDAY PARTY AT ARYA BHAVAN!
We had a wonderful evening, lots of people came (about 75!) and we had a delicious dinner with a very generous buffet, and 2 great talks! Our first speaker was Kirti, the owner/chef of Arya Bhavan, who spoke about how the restaurant came to be serving raw food and what Indian spices she uses with her raw vegan dishes. Our second speakers were Jonathan and Yah Unity who spoke about their upcoming volunteer trip to Uganda to teach dance to young people there. We had a really fun gift exchange with most presents being very creatively recycled. Thanks to everyone who came out and made it a really fun evening!
Thanks to Ariane from Chicago Raw Food Community, Jeff from Taste of Vegan Chicagoland and Cyndi from the Live Food Chicago Community for co-hosting the event! Check out their awesome meetups:
