The other night I decided not to be a pain in the ass vegan while getting food with a group of folks after 24C3 and we ended up at a Stake House. I knew walking in my choices would be slim to none and after talking with the waitress this was confirmed. Esther was kind enough to explain the diary thing in German and she went to the kitchen to check what might work. A side order of “wok cooked vegetables” was the only option, which I took. Unfortunately I’m pretty sure it wasn’t as dairy free as I was lead to believe as about 8 hours later I was wrecked. It’s not the worse food poisoning I’ve had by a long shot, but I’m out of commission for sure. I slept the majority of the day and keeping my fingers crossed for improvement by tomorrow. It’s New Years I’m going to be totally bummed if after all this planning I miss everything because I’m unable to move.

Apologies to everyone going forward, but I’ll be passing on any trips to to restaurants like this in the future.
