Vegetarian/Vegan Thanksgiving Lunch, Part One - At Red Bamboo (Limited to 30)

It has become a tradition for our group to organize a Meetup on Thanksgiving Day, for those of us who are in the city without family over the holiday.

We will be meeting outside Red Bamboo at 11:45am to be among those entering through their doors at 12 noon when the restaurant opens. Red Bamboo does not take any reservations from any person or group, but every year we go there at 12 noon on Thanksgiving Day when they open. Red Bamboo has graciously taken a "semi-official" reservation from us, as they do every year -- we have told them we are coming and they are expecting us.

Click here for Red Bamboo's extensive and delicious all-vegetarian menu.

This meetup event will fill up quickly, and there will be no waiting list. Two other Thanksgiving lunches have been posted at other restaurants -- VP2 and Soy & Sake. If you have not yet RSVP'd yet for one of our Thanksgiving Lunch events and would like to do so, we encourage you to try the following: look at all three of our Thanksgiving Lunch event listings. If no spots are available for any of our Thanksgiving Lunch events, keep checking all events, now and in days to come, up to Thanksgiving morning, to see if any spots have become available. People do drop out of our events, and if you catch the event at the right time, you can RSVP. Sorry there are no waiting lists, so please just keep checking back for all listed Thanksgiving events.

Those who have RSVP'd for this Red Bamboo meetup: please arrive promptly at 11:45am.

Happy Thanksgiving, and have a wonderful Holiday Season!

- David and Jen

      David. When there is a Waiting List what is the etiquette? Only show up if on the primary list? New to the group.

      Yes. When we do have a waiting list, you should only show up if you have made it on to the primary list. There is no waiting list for this event though, just the regular, primary RSVP list. Please -- no more questions here. All the people who have RSVP'd for this event are getting inundated by these questions. If you have a question, just click on my photo and send an email to me. No need for every question to be emailed to 30 people, as happens when you comment here. Thanks. - David

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
