Brainstorming and Free Vegan Sushi in Berkeley

Happy New Year, sfvtech members! Our first meetup of 2014 will be on Monday, February 17th at NextSpace in Berkeley (http://nextspace.us/nextspace-berkeley/). Tomato Sushi (http://tomatosushi.com/) is going to cater the event to promote their delicious food. Special thanks to member Adam Weiss for pulling this together.

At this meetup we're going to generate fresh, practical ideas about how technology can promote plant-based living and reduce animal suffering.  Bring your existing ideas and be prepared to leave with new ones.

    So sorry to miss everyone. SaveABunny did a large scale meat rabbit rescue on 2/15/14 and I was still dealing with triaging, treatment etc. But I would have loved to attend!

      Is this the first one you missed, Eileen? It was indeed a good time, with surprisingly good vegan sushi.

    Hi, I'm working late and unable to attend. Is it possible for someone to take notes and post the ideas about 'how tech can promote vegan living and reduce animal suffering' online?
    Thanks.

      Sorry you can't make it, Lisa. We plan to capture the output for further analysis. Thanks!

    A few notes for tonight:

    NextSpace is located just a few hundred feet from the Downtown Berkeley BART station. If you are coming on BART, come up the escalator and turn right. Cross Center Street (the intersection right next to the station), then turn left and look for the Wells Fargo sign sticking out from the side of the building -- that's the entrance to NextSpace. The main entrance is just before that sign, and the after-hours entrance (that we’ll be using) is just on the other side of the sign.

    If you’re driving, there are two garages on the NextSpace's block: the LAZ and Allston Way garages. There is also 2 - 4 hour metered parking in the downtown area, most of which should be free after 6pm.

    The main entrance to NextSpace is closed on holidays, so we'll be using using the after-hours door. This is right next to the main door, but is harder to see. Look for the sign on the main door for directions. If you walk more than 15 feet away from the main door, you've gone too far!

    Is anybody aware of the John mcDougall programs in Santa Rosa?

    • David G

      Hi David, I attended McDougall's 10 day session in 2012 and lost about 60 pounds in the ensuing 18 months. I'm sold on the McDougall starch-based diet. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions.

    Just so people know: Tomato Sushi is a unique new vegan product that I encountered at the SF Green Festival. I talked to the inventor about the sfvtech group, and he really wanted to give everyone a chance to try it.

    It's not just vegetable sushi, it is a tuna-like vegan "fish" that's made from tomatoes and other natural ingredients. It was created by a former instructor at the Culinary Institute of America who has owned or run a number of world-class restaurants, so it is seriously good stuff!

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.
