Did the people in question know what the menu was before they went to this event? If not, was the organizer aware that some of the attendees would be vegan?

As a chef instructor, my personal feeling is that events like these need to post what they'll be preparing. It's also the responsibility of attendees to share any dietary concerns with the event organizer.

If no dietary concerns were shared, then yes, I must agree with Silvia. Why on Earth would anyone assume that an event planned around Italian food would be vegan? Italian cuisine is well known for its use of meat, poultry, seafood, and dairy products.

I also agree with Leslie regarding the importance of tolerance. Posting this link seems unnecessarily confrontational.

So the event didn't go as you expected? That is unfortunate. GET OVER IT!
