After yesterdays less than fantastic article about CD, I though I would share with you a list of GF beers. It is Friday, it is Labor Day weekend, It is almost my Birthday and I am 3 hours away from being done with my training at work. I think we all have PLENTY of reasons to kick back and enjoy a few brewskis. Check it out kids!
The S’Mac Down…
So last friday I went to my favorite gluten free restaurant in nyc aka S’Mac. However, while eating there I was gluten’d and I am still feeling the after effects of that gluten. So I took some action and wrote to S’Mac. I didn’t write to them because I was mad or wanted anything in return but because we Glutards are a community and should stick together and inform others and resturants when “gluten-free” is not in fact gluten free. Anyway, here is my letter to them. (Warning-> there will be TMI)
I truly appreciate you taking the time to e-mail me about your past two experiences at S’MAC.
All of our employees are rigorously trained on gluten-free so I am going to dig into what happened as I don’t want something like this happening again! I am very aware of how awful the outcome of consuming gluten is as I was gluten-intolerant for several years so I do apologize profusely for you having to go through that after eating at S’MAC.
Any information you could provide me regarding your visits as to date, time of day, dine-in vs. take-out/delivery will help me hone in on why & how this happened.
Again, I appreciate you bringing this to my attention.
Tonight has been one of those perfect NYC nights. From attempting to get tickets at the Book of Mormon, walking around the city, stopping at my favorite thrift store, eating dinner at S’Mac and then a visit to Strand (aka the best bookstore ever).
Cue a gluten attack to put a twist into my perfect NYC night. I love S’Mac - a restaurant that is just mac and cheese and offers gf options!! How amazing! Yet the last two times I have eaten there it has taken about 30 minutes for me to get sick. I am lucky I made out home for the big attack- yuck.
So fellow glutards- beware of my beloved S’Mac for she tricks you with cheese but leaves you with a gluten belly and unmentionable bathroom adventures.
