Let's meetup at the Empress Taytu on the East side for outstanding Ethiopian cuisine. It's always a fantastic meal and a great time.
PLEASE do not use heavy perfumes or fragrances when attending our meetups. Guys, this can mean you, too, with after shave or cologne. They can trigger migraines and aggravate asthma. Let's save our sense of smell for the enticing aromas at the restaurant.
If you have never enjoyed Ethiopian food before, it is wonderfully delicious and one of the most ancient cuisines on the planet. It is NOT hot! Even if you ask for hot sauce, theirs is more flavorful than warming.
The restaurant's decor and aromas will transport you to the fertile crescent from the moment you arrive.
Here is a link with more information, though it's not the restaurant's own web site, they don't have one how's that for off the grid and home-spun? http://www.ethiopianrestaurant.com/ohio/empress_tayitu.html

Since it will be a Saturday night in the big city, suggestions for things to do after are always welcomed, same for suggestions for future meetups.
If you bring a guest, spouse, etc, who is not veg, have them refrain from ordering meat. Not everyone wants to see it or smell it, and, after all, it is a vegan meetup.
Please make sure to change your attending status if you decide not to attend. It is a fairness issue with the restaurant.
Also, the meetup site tracks members' 'no shows' and I don't know what happens when you reach a certain number, but it's probably not good. So don't be a no show.
