Are you vegan or vegetarian? If so why did you go veg?

I went Veg because i really just don't like meat. I don't like the taste or the texture or the smell...and i also love animals, I have two rescue dogs, Sophie and Gizmo, and two shelter cats, Cali and Batman. But what really got me motivated to start, is that I'm going to culinary school in the fall and I love to cook, but I wanted to really push myself out of the box with my recipies.

What type of meetup events would you most enjoy?

I'm leaving for college in the fall, so I'm not sure how many meetups I could attend, but I think i would like meetings where there is great food <3 and great people...everything else is just for fun :)

Are you interested in hosting events or becoming an organizer?
