Our First Meetup

Hello Herbivores:

Happy New Year.  I hope you are all doing well.  I have finally gotten around the scheduling another meetup.

I have had several meals at Souley Vegan and each was great.  It is a very casual and inexpensive place. Vegan as the names implies.

Be not afraid of Oakland.  The restaurant is walking distance (probably 15 minutes) from the 12th ST. BART station in downtown Oakland.  Or you can take the Free Shuttle (a green colored bus that says Free Shuttle) toward Jack London Square that runs along Broadway  There's a free shuttle stop right in front of the restaurant at Broadway and 3rd St.

It can get pretty crowded so I chose an earlier time for late breakfast/early lunch/brunch and will reserve a table based on the number of people that will attend.

Hopefully it's a nice warm day and after for those interested we can take a walk around Lake Merritt.

Special Note:

If your meal is under $10 you will need to pay cash.

    My car engine doesn't seem functioning well and I made an app with a mechanics to check it up tomorrow morning. I don't think I can make it this time. I'm looking forward to attending the next meeting.

      Hi Chloe: I noticed your message/question and wanted to be sure that you know that Souley Vegan is a restaurant with good food and is inexpensive i.e. you can get a meal for under $10.

    I'll be in the Bay Area in May. I moved to PS in August, but stay connected with my people up in your neighborhood. Thanks for starting this up, John!
    There is a new FB group in your area for LGBT veg folk, too.

    I am unsure if I will be able to make this, but I will try! How will I know which is the meetup group?

    • John R. E.

      Just look for me. The restaurant is on the smaller side and you can ask the staff for the Meetup table.

    Hey Sarah:
    Thanks for the heads up about the Groupon. I checked it out and it goes until August of this year. Unfortunately, only one per table. Might be possible depending on how many folks show up.

  • Sarah L

    This is going to be a crazy week for me, so I am not 100% I can make it -- a tentative yes for me. Also, FYI -- Groupon has a Souley Vegan deal right now!

    Hopefully I can make it next time.
