I was pretty nervous going into the trivia night, because I hadn't started my annual rewatch yet and I was feeling the pressure having previously been undefeated in Buffy trivia competitions (though the last time I played was years and years ago back at uni... until I became part of BuffySoc and started writing them!). I brushed up a bit using my Watcher's Guides (which are not as comprehensive as I hoped). I joined my friend Kim's team, the Doublemeat Pals, and I am happy to report that we totally won. Even with a temporary evacuation of the building due to a fire alarm. UNDEFEATED BUFFY TRIVIA CHAMPION!
Anyway, about the food. The event was held at Grill'd in the Wintergarden in the city. Grill'd has locations all over. They have three veggie burgers on the menu, which can all be made vegan if you take some things off. Their selection of fries is also all vegan, but the only dipping sauce that is vegan is the tomato relish.
I think every time I have been to a Grill'd I have had the Garden Goodness burger - a veggie pattie, beetroot, avocado, salad and relish. You leave off the cheese and mayo to make it vegan. I decided to branch out and try their sweet potato chips. They were OK, kind of small and smooshy. See, Grill'd is the home of some of the best chips ever - herby and fried and delicious... so the sweet potato chips certainly didn't live up to those. Plus they came in a smaller cup than the regular chips. Hmph.
We actually did share some of their original chips later on that night. But really, who cares about chips when you are winning at Buffy?
