Dining Out with HEA – It was a wonderful evening at Rik’s Cafe – Watch for the Next Dine out soon and Monthly Potlucks


Dining out with HEA and Monthly potlucks between Adventures is a wonderful opportunity to get together and catch up.  We all love the community of the Adventure Potlucks! Dining Out with HEA gives us a chance to enjoy that community some more.  Also, this is an opportunity for restaurants to learn about HEA and whole food plant based/no oil preparation..   It adds to our list of options to choose for dining out on other occasions.


Delicious and creative dining at Rik’s Cafe

Our November Dining Out with HEA:  

Rik’s Cafe – 1065 Maryland Ave, Hagerstown

– he loves to create! And there are always

several plant based options.

Ask for the 3-2-1 dressing!

What a delight for HEA folks to get together for an

evening cooked by someone else! Folks were from

various past adventures, and we all  had fun catching

with each other


Roasted Winter Root Quinoa Salad

                                              The meals we enjoyed at Rik’s definitely confirm their                                                      website description: “Rik’s Cafe is a contemporary                                                            American restaurant. Our menu features classic                                                                sandwiches, hardy soups and crisp fun salads, as well as                                                  innovative small plates and entrees.”

                                              “We believe in using locally sourced products when                                                          possible on an evolving, fresh, made to order menu.
