    I love the place. However, it is too early on a Saturday for me to attend. Enjoy yourselves.

      It is too early because I am in church. I can attend events later in the day.

    Hello,

    I could not attetnd this lunch as something came up.
    I hope to attend another event soon.
    There are some good Indian restaurants in Laurel-Columbia area- but they serve veg and non-veg dishes. If you all have no objection to that I can suggest few for next meeting. Let me know.

    Food looks great! We're on the right side toward the back as you walk in. No waiting list!

    Re: the PayPal notifications which mention "Keep Our Promise" or "Emergency Coalition." (Pt 1)

    I apologize for not explaining this earlier, but it hasn't come up before and I've not gotten around to doing so. Someone posted questions about this here today, and then went on to say he was "very uncomfortable" and discussed reporting our group to Meetup and PayPal. I have nothing to hide. He can report us to anyone he wants. However, the comments from that person made me "very uncomfortable" and so I refunded his $2, and I asked him not to attend our event tomorrow. PayPal puts that info. into the receipts, etc. it sends. The PayPal system will not let me update or change that from "Keep Our Promise: Emergency Coalition." That name refers to an effort I worked on with many others to oppose cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid a few years ago. Long story short, all of the money collected through this Veg Up group goes to defray the charges meetup.com requires each month.

      Everyone planning to come: be ready for a fun time. Anyone not coming for easy going conversation please don't disrupt our event with any conduct that could disturb the fun. Thanks.

    Re: the PayPal notifications which mention "Keep Our Promise" or "Emergency Coalition." (Pt 2)

    I have nothing against the person who posted comments questioning the use of his $2 and the legitimacy of asking for it. In fact I know nothing about him. I respect his right to ask questions, but I resent his comments implying we're up to something untoward. So after I refunded his $2, I also removed him from the group. I see us as a relaxed and friendly group, and I don't think we're a good fit for him. I apologized to him saying we probably were just getting off on the wrong foot, but bottom line: I'm organizing this group at a financial loss. I don't have to accept comments essentially threatening us or similar negative attitudes. This is supposed to be fun!

    I want to apologize to all of you as group members. I have tried to keep this group drama free, and I regret this incident. I hope this explains everything, but if not, please feel free to email me with any questions.

    Best,
    Mike

      PS I received email from the person who asked questions here previously. In the email he was disputing that Meetup charges me. He was also saying he plans to confront me to discuss these matters. I apologize in advance for any unpleasantness.

    Since it came up ...

    Meetup does not charge members to create a Meetup account, join a Meetup Group, or attend Meetups.

    However, each Meetup Group's Organizer pays Meetup Organizer Dues to run their groups. So, some Organizers do charge their members Membership Dues and/or Event Fees.

    Hi, Is it okay to invite a friend, or would they have to join?

    1 · August 14, 2013

    • Mike H.

      No one has to join, but we hope they will want to once they get to know us! :-)

    Is it ok to pay in the restaurant? We're not comfortable using our PayPal account.

    August 16, 2013

    • Mike H.

      It is OK but please be on time. We can't hold seats for people.

      August 16, 2013

    • Mike H.

      BTW--You don't have to use your PayPal account. You can use any credit or debit card.

      August 16, 2013

  • Mike H.

    Yes it's OK to bring friends. To be fair we are asking everyone to chip in $2 to keep the group going. Also we hope your friends will join the group.
