On Saturday, November 3rd, 2012, over 70 PDXYelpers and guests gave up the goat (and any other meat product, for that matter) for Yelp's Veggin' Out 2.0 Elite Event @ Portland's downtown Veggie Grill!
Bryan I offers hearty "applause to Yelp for encouraging us to expand our culinary horizons and showing that indeed, vegan food can taste great!" Especially when it comes in the form of delicious sandwiches, burgers and salads offered up by Veggie Grill. This isn't just your average all-veggie super health food either. Just ask Katherine M, who rocked the "carne asada sandwich with a steamin' kale side," while her date scored "the VG cheeseburger, ranchero style, with a side of mac n' cheese." In fact, Veggie Grill opened their entire menu, including sides of buffalo wings and desserts including carrot cake and pudding, to Yelp. All this great food was washed down by brews from PDXYelp friends including Ninkasi and Bridgeport as well as tasty red wine.
Out of town guest Andrea V sums it up well: "Great event! The staggered seating worked well; there was no crowd, no line, and we got our food super fast. The staff at VG was very friendly and helpful and made this location one worth returning to!" Huge thanks go out to Dan, Mike, Ed and all the staff at Veggie Grill; our friends from Ninkasi and Bridgeport; Mantern Kevin K; and of course the Yelp Elite Squad, without whom this would not be even happening.
