Last Night at Craftbar

“All staff, front and back, is expecting you and is informed...Our team is looking forward to having you all in!”

This quote is part of an email exchange I had with the GM of Craftbar the week leading up to our WFD Craftbar event and boy did my heart soar. These words are magic to any allergic person’s ears especially this one. And I just knew we’d be in great hands from start to finish at Craftbar. And we totally were.

I want to give a public THANK YOU to Chef Lauren, Sous Chef Ben with the vegan girlfriend, manager Jennifer, night manager Heather, hostess Ashley and our server Andrew for double and triple checking everyone’s needs. Thank you Craftbar team for being so hospitable, patient, understanding, professional and all around rock stars!

I also want to send a big THANK YOU to our sponsor: Healthcentral.com for their unflagging support of this venture and to the Certified asthma & allergy friendly™ program for supplying the most amazing goody bag an allergic girl or guy could want.


Truly, I’m still ferklempt about how great the whole evening was...so here are some pictures by our wonderful AMI (THANK YOU AMI for a great job last night!) of the various apps and entrees we all had.

Can't you feel the love?
