Brunch Dine-Out at Munch
Greetings! We’re going to kick off 2019 with a hearty brunch at Munch ( in Oak Park! Located in a neighborhood filled with fun and lively shops, Munch offers an assortment of predominantly vegan fare. The full brunch-specific menu, which is only available Saturdays and Sundays, includes tasty options such as tofu scramble, breakfast tacos, avocado toast, vegan bacon and sausage, pancakes, combo plates, breakfast sandwiches, sides, and more. Munch opens to the public at 10:00 a.m., but the restaurant is opening a half hour earlier just for us to ensure that all Vegan Chicago members who RSVP are accommodated. If you plan to attend, please try to be on time, as we may not be able to save seats after 10:00 a.m. As Munch is BYOB, if guests of legal drinking age prefer their brunch to be accompanied by Bloody Marys, mimosas, or any other alcoholic beverages, they are welcome to bring them. Non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase. Munch accepts cash-only, and a cash machine is located within the restaurant with an associated charge of $1.00 per transaction. Munch is within walking distance of the CTA Green Line Harlem/Lake station. For those driving, there's a parking lot located a few doors south of the restaurant (on North Boulevard), as well as street parking. For those who would like to walk off a bit of their meal afterward, nearby shops that may be of interest include Ten Thousand Villages, Pumpkin Moon, Paper Source, Beer Shop, and Scratch 'n Sniff. If you sign up and then find you can no longer attend, please update your RSVP as soon as possible to open a spot for someone else. Hope to see you there! Debra
