Sylvia is selling her restaurant

My sister, Sylvia Thompson, is selling her vegan restaurant, Greens and Vines, to people from Beijing, who are Buddhists and vegetarians.  The restaurant will close on March 31 and reopen at a later date with a different name.  The new owners plan to use the same raw, gourmet, vegan concept but will expand it to include soups, noodles, tea time, and classes.

This is my sister, Sylvia Thompson, in her restaurant, Greens and Vines (2014):

I invited some of my friends and relatives to lunch at Greens and Vines.  That’s me on the right, wearing a lavender muumuu (2014):

This is an appetizer, consisting of flaxseed crackers, radishes, and three types of dips:

If you are interested in this type of delicious vegan cuisine, please dine at Greens and Vines for lunch or dinner before the restaurant closes on March 31.  It’s located on the corner of Kapiolani Boulevard and Ward Avenue.

After the restaurant closes, Sylvia will retire and work on her vegan cookbook.

    The food is very visually appealing. Unfortunately I will not make it to Hawaii before the March 31 closing.
