Potluck and Movie Night: Vegucated

  • Jun 2, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join us for a vegan potluck dinner, then we'll watch a vegetarian documentary in Juice Pod's home theater. Bring a vegan dish to share and a list of ingredients to help those with food sensitivities. There will be vegan popcorn and drinks for the movie. Seating is limited, so please adjust your RSVP if you can't make it, as we don't want any empty seats. Check others' RSVP comments to see what they are bringing and comment about what you are bringing when you RSVP, so we don't duplicate dishes.

76 Min.  Vegucated is a guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks and learn what it's all about. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the planet's fate may fall on their plates. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before. But can their convictions carry them through when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets? Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who are trying their darnedest to change in a culture that seems dead set against it.

      Nice meeting you yesterday. Family and friends can be a challenge when you first go vegan. I have a very good friend that I went to junior high, high school and college with. He gave me a hard time for decades about my plant-based diet. Last year he went vegan and after his son saw the results, he went vegan also. So you never know. Thanks for the "Mud" movie recommendation. I definitely plan on seeing it. Looking forward to visiting with you more at a future home and/or restaurant get together. All the best.

      We usually bring a main dish because we are two. It's also really helpful to post what exactly you're bringing. You'll be the 2nd (thru 10th) people to know what it is. ;-)
