    I had a great time talking with people and the food was delicious, too; I hadn't had macaroni and cheese in a couple of decades so it was nice to catch up to an old pal. This was a great event; only wish it could have lasted longer. Thanks, Lex and Jason for all you do for us.

    I showed up a bit late & the party was still going on full-force. The food was delicious & the Chocolate Martini was divine. The people were friendly & I ran into some familiar faces as well. I look forward to next event. Great job to all the organizers & the cool vegans who came out to mingle.

    The food was outstanding. I spoke with one of the mangers and requested they get some of these things on the menu. Met a bunch of new people. It was great because we didn't sit around just talking about veganism! :-) And the Key Lime Martina was pretty awesome.

    Thanks Justin for mentioning it. It was an oversight not to mention that non-alcoholic options include, ice tea, ice tea lemonade, all sodas, bottled water, and there will be a special Lemonade such as a mango lemonade or a mojito limeade. We will continue to explore all options rest assured.

    Is it possible to get some non-alcoholic drinks added to the cover-approved drink list?
