Respond to Review of CLOSED: The Olde Depot

Review: I love that an organic vegan mini-mall is forming on 3rd Street. Take that Portland! ;) I've been here twice in the last two days and I love this place. I think this is going to be our go-to bar now. How can you go wrong with tasty craft beers and all vegan food to go with it? So far I have had the french fries, pierogies (they are fried so they look more like a empanada and not like the kind of pierogies I grew up with which were soft and more gyoza looking) and the housemade vegan currywurst. Next time I'll try the pretzel and potato salad of the day. I like their housemade sausage better than Rosamunde's. The texture and flavor is very impressive. They have 5 or 6 sausages, 4 different toppings and a selection of mustards and ketchups to choose from. There are also tasty/unique sauce combos to choose from to go with the fries as well. They are following a recent trend I've noticed of not boldly stating that your restaurant is vegan. I was trying to find someone nearby that didn't know their food was vegan to see if they were freaked out/annoyed by that, but I couldn't find any such person. Maybe next time. ;) Rumor has it they are going to have a vegan brunch sometime in the near future. Oh my! They have a small(ish... compared to Beer Revolution next door) but tasty selection of craft beers to choose from at good prices. And they are friendly. When I was there last night they ran out of the beer I wanted, so they gave me the last of their keg (about a half glass worth) for free and then suggested a comparable beer to get instead. Hopefully they run out of beer less as they figure out ordering levels, etc. They were really packed the last two nights which is exciting for such a new bar. Definitely check this place out. And then come back, again, and again, and again. I'm already day dreaming about my next trip there.
