The other night we got out and watched a live improv group called Girls Girls Girls. It's a local improv musical group, comprised of all women. They perform at theaters around town, and do improv musicals with ideas suggested from the audience. It was a very small crowd that night, but still alot of fun. They even chose my suggestion for that nights performance and did Library: The Musical! Hehe.
Before catching the show, we finally tried a great little restaurant on the East side called Eastside Cafe. They have a private garden where they grow most of the produce used in thier dishes. They have a wide variety of choices. When I told the waitress I was vegan and asked about my options, she pulled out a seperate menu with the heading "Vegan" I was so thrilled!
Candy and I shared the Pasta Pomodoro, which was penne pasta, topped with sauteed mushrooms and a tomato basil sauce, on a bed of fresh greens. It came with 1/2 roasted acorn squash w/ soy-ginger sauce (sooo good!), and we got 2 small dinner salads with their housemade Raspberry Vinnagrette. I would have to say this was one of the most pleasant meals I have had in a while. It fueled our 4 mile hike around the Eastside and through the ghetto (much better than waiting on buses) quite nicely. We will be going back!
Sunday night we went to a Vegan Halloween Potluck hosted by Team Feed Everyone They host a potluck every Sunday night. Anyone is invited, and it's all vegan! It was pretty cool, and a lot of fun. I brought a Butternut squash lasagna, and Candy made mini Chocolate Orange cupcakes. It was all devoured and everyone was raving about the food. We are going to try to make it a bi-weekly thing. It will be a great chance to meet people, and also a chance to get my creativity flowing, since every week is themed.
Can't you tell they have a death wish?
