For the "wholly herbivorous"
Are you looking to show off your vegan cred? Maybe do some vegan learning on your own time?
Some want to eat vegan food, some want to meat vegan persons, and of those, some want to interact meaningfully with other vegan persons. OTOH, some want to attend events with vegetarian and vegan persons to 'compare notes' with them, sharing learning experiences with likeminded vegan persons.
There are several groups for vegetarians and vegans around Boston:
Boston Vegan Association (BVA) supports vegans and vegan wannabes (those vegans-in-the-making who are "on the path") and aggressively engages social and economic institutions around Greater Boston to make Greater Boston "more vegan-friendly" [http://www.BostonVega...]
Boston Vegetarian Society (BVS) meets monthly at Grasshopper [http://www.BostonVeg....] and holds monthly socials and periodic events, including the annual Boston Vegetarian Food Festival. Everything is vegan-oriented.
There are animal rights, macrobiotic, yoga, vegan raw foods, and natural health/natural foods groups.
And there are scores of vegetarian general and special interest e-mail lists for vegetarians around Boston, Boston suburbs, Massachusetts, and New England [http://Waste.org/regv... and http://Groups.Yahoo.c...]
This Meetup group has been going for several years, has several hundred members, but a relatively small gathering shows each month (6-20). Your bringing your vegan, vegetarian, and interested friends (and family) will make our gatherings larger and more interesting -- and it makes you more interesting.
We welcome each other, orient vegan newbies (and the "new-to-Boston" veggies), and help veg*ans feel comfortable and welcome 'veganly' in Boston. Months later, we find one another min other places (both vegetarian and general), and read about our work and adventures throughout this great city and world. Wow! What a great network. The more we explore our developing network, the more enthusiastic we become for appreciating our common efforts in life, work, and organizing.
Want some extra events? Let's have them. Want to attend these other vegetarian group events, dinners, food fairs, and outreach as a group, a contingent, a block? Let's do so. Let's become vegetarian and vegan friends.
And don't overlook cross-registering with the Boston Vegetarian Meetup:
and perhaps other likeminded groups, or at least groups likeminded for you.

However, All of US would like ALL of YOU to check out these great vegan links -- not merely vegan links, nor even good vegan links, but GREAT vegan links:
http://www.vegansworl... - We're mentioned.
http://www.vegansworl... - Asks us to form a FREE alternative to Meetup.com
We Warm-Hearted Vegans don't wear fur (the hairy skin of animals) or fur trim or leather, and we often tag onto other local vegetarian groups for social and educational events. If you're nonvegetarian and visiting, please don't make your cruelty to animals conspicuous (that means, don't wear leather coats or fur).
Marxian, Rousseauan, or Hobbesian (a contrived collaboration of different wills), we hope to move together towards a more vegan-FRIENDLY world into a fully (100%) VEGAN world.
