Just wondering what would happen if we all organized a day and we all went to restaurants requesting gluten free menus/options?
There are so many ways it could be done. Obviously, we would go to the "unfriendlies"- the ones that need to hear our roar! And when you actually get starved for food, you could go eat at the "friendlies", lol.
I could go on and on about my ideas, but I don't want to do a monologue...:)

I think, that's a great idea, we should try it.

Actually, individual restaurants of chains may not be able to do much. What if we all email the corporate contact email on the same week? I think getting a gluten-free request or inquiry once every few weeks doesn't register. A bunch at a time might make them notice.

Pick no more than 5 places or you will lose people. Give us the contact address and a brief idea of what to say or even something we can cut and paste. Just like people do to get a point to a senator.

Our local CSA chapter has chosen a few restaurants that they thought could pull together a few gluten-free meal options and gone in and educated them about preparing a meal, then they organized a Dinner Out night at the place and got together a group to eat there. Mostly it has been higher end places with simple steak dinners and fish or chicken option. I haven't attended and don't know how they trained the staff but they are just everyday folk like us who invested themselves to the benefit of so many. There are several chains with gluten-free menues, Bonefish etc., in the area but they want to try and open up more options.
