If you are in the Greater DC area, here's a good chance to discuss a "healthy way of eating"... especially for the new people:
WHAT: 6-course raw meal by Chef Russ
WHERE: Great Sage restaurant in Clarksville, MD - Clarksville Square Dr
WHEN: April 20, 2009 @ 7PM
HOW: $40pp (excludes tax & gratuity)
RSVP, because they expect to sell out this weekend or next weekend.
See you there!

Here's more info I got from Dondra at Great Sage: "Vince Shelton from the Baltimore Raw Food Tribe will be a guest speaker, and there will be an opportunity to mix & mingle to meet new friends and discuss this healthy way of eating!"
The following is the contact info to RSVP. Tell them you heard it on GoneRaw! (this is not a paid advertisement...):
Great Sage Restaurant
By the way, you can stop by Roots Market just at the corner there (before dinner) to see their raw food selection items (in the produce section). They have cookies, crackers from Glasser Farms(?). I love Roots Market. Too bad it's nowhere near where I live!
So far, the menu could be:
Amuse: Trio of stuffed mushrooms
1st Course: Gazpacho: pureed soup of vine ripe tomatoes, cucumber, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, mint, lime, cold-pressed olive oil, and sea salt.
2nd Course: Grapefruit Carpaccio: dressed with scraped vanilla seed, walnuts, agave, and arugula oil
3rd Course: Pepito-chili pate with salsa fresca and guacamole
Intermezzo: Citrus Grenita
