VSDC is looking forward to spending another evening enjoying vegan food with old and new friends alike.

Restaurant: Sala Thai restaurant serves tasty Thai cuisine and has a lengthy separate vegetarian menu with many appetizer and main dish options for vegans. Their website contains information about the restaurant, including their menu at

RSVPs: Since reservations are based on the number of RSVP’s, please do not RSVP “YES” unless you are sure you will attend. Please be considerate of the restaurant, VSDC, and the others who want to attend by changing your RSVP if you are no longer able to come. The restaurant sets aside seating based on the RSVP’s, and it hurts the restaurant and VSDC when people do not show up.

VSDC will check people in as they arrive at the restaurant and only those who have RSVP’d YES will be permitted to sit with the group.

Please note: VSDC cannot guarantee seating if you arrive more than 15 minutes late.

If the RSVP’s are full, please sign up for the waiting list if you are interested in attending. Those on the waiting list will be automatically moved up when someone changes their RSVP.

Payment: The restaurant will provide one check for multiple people sitting at a table, so please come prepared to split the check by paying for your portion of the bill for your food and drink. Please remember to include tax and tip (suggested rule of thumb 30%).

Metro accessible: Sala Thai is located about ½ mile north of the Bethesda metro station (Red line).

Inclement Weather: In the event of inclement weather, this event may be cancelled so please check your email beforehand.
