The N.O.S.e Weekly Dinner group (No Oil Saturday evening)

Needs a location

Welcome to our No Oil Saturday evening group (N.0.S.e).
This group, much like our No Oil Wednesday Luncheon group (N.O.W.) is looking like a success. Management just sets a long table aside for us. The wait staff is excellent. They remembers what several of us like to drink and sets the drink out for those people when they arrive. Reminds me of being on a cruise. We are starting to figure out what we each like and the waiter is starting to recommend certain substitutions for our oil free requirements.
A lot of people really wanted to come and enjoy the fellowship of our N.O.W group, but could not make a luncheon time. That's why we started this group. We get lot of the Luncheon group and a whole bunch on New people.
This is going to conflict once in while with another Meetups, but that’s all right. Gives us WFPB NOS people more choice. How great is that. Now that COVID is over, gone are the days where we could not find like minded people to dine and spent time with.
So if you are interested or have already started on a Whole Food Plant Based Lifestyle this is for you. Very informal, no introductions, no name tags, just a group of interesting people who are more that willing to share their sometimes inspiring experiences as well at some tips and tricks for every day living. We have several mixed marriages, so if your spouse is not yet on board with WFPB, they will be some one they can relate to. You can get as much or little support as you wish.
