Eat,Meet & Greet. Seawall walk & hike Stanley Park for Socially Conscious people

Hi Folks

One of my resolutions this year is to connect ethical people with great projects, that make a difference.  At the same time, life should be more than working to make a difference.  So i'm hoping to help people find new friends amongst, like-minded, good-hearted people.  I will like to create an opportunity for people to socialize over dinner, meet other wonderful people and enjoy a little bit of the outdoors, usually thru hikes or walks.

So since i'm an idealist;-), let's try to combine the best of all worlds. 

Every other saturday I plan to host a dinner at one of the most ethical restaurants in Vancouver that sells the best Chinese food I have had in town.  Panz Veggie.  The owner, Sheila believes in making food that is healthy, honorably made and tastes great. 

During these dinners we will have a chance to get to know each other, share what we feel comfortable sharing and discuss things of common interest.  The values we practice, the causes we support, the ideals we strive to actualize, and the lives we live.  If you have any suggestions, please feel free to share them

After dinner, we will walk along the seawall, to Stanley Park and once we get there we will cut across the forest and walk to 2nd beach.  At which point we will walk the along the seawall to the Cactus Club on Denman & Davie.  Which is a transit accessible and just a short walk back to Panz Veggie for those who have parked there.

If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions of comments, then please feel free to share them.  I'm not a perfect organizer and i tend to stretch myself too thin, which leaves me prone to forgetting things, so sincerely, feel free to suggest areas of improvement.  At the end of the day, i just want to support people who make a difference, by helping them to feel more good and do more good.
