A vegan meetup is where vegans (whatever their PHILOSOPHY about being vegan) and vegan-oriented persons (NOT "tire-kickers" who come "to gawk at the vegans") with similar interests get together and hang out.  If you TWEET, we instantly become a TWEETUP.

Because of our array of motives, some focus more on diet alone, while others are concerned with an integrated world-and-life view.  We're a diverse lot, so we'll meet LOTS of folks whose interests are somewhat different from our own, but who share the vegetarian and vegan interests with usm but we may NOT agree with everyone on how important each of the elements in another's vegan worldview and personality is.

A subset of our >6000 members attend any particular event.  Further, by networking with BVS, GBBCC, MARC, BVA, NEAVS, other veg groups, and other meetups, we get to know one another.

Grasshopper, My Thai, Veggie Planet, Veggie Galaxy, Clover Food Lab, True Bistro, Red Lentil, Organic Natural, Life Alive, and others vegan hangouts are our favorite meeting sites.

We're always "BECOMING a vegan group"; BRING SOMETHING VEGAN-ORIENTED TO SHARE (newspaper clipping, book or DVD, photos, etc.) with other attendees as a way for them to get to know you and you to know them. Sharing IS "becoming" for veg*ans.

What and how can we share? A news article, a story with a vegan interest, some information (old or new) with a vegan slant, a memento of traveling as a vegan, info on a great vegan website or resource or event, etc.  Be creative.  Pleasantly surprise us.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
