Vegan Cookout at Monty's Blue Plate Diner

  • May 11, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • Monty's Blue Plate Diner

Since the cookout at Monty's last fall went so well, we're going to do another. It will be held on their patio, with extra seating and a canopy.

Everything at this event is vegan. All food will be served buffet style.

White bean burgers
Vegan "pulled pork" (gluten free without bun)
Mushroom walnut burgers (gluten free without bun)

Side Dishes
Coleslaw (gluten free)
Potato salad (gluten free)
Bean salad (gluten free)

Blueberry Crumble

Water and seasonal beverage included (hot or cold depending on the weather). Other beverages will be available for an additional charge.

The $15.00 fee includes the tax, tip, and everything mentioned above (except the noted beverages).

RSVP/Payment Info:
Pre-payment is required to RSVP (see exception below). automates this process when you pay via PayPal. If you want to pay by check, contact me and I will give you my mailing address. I will manually update your RSVP as soon as I receive your request, but since our events fill up quickly, out of fairness to other group members I will remove the RSVP if the check is not received within four business days.

Special honor system exception: If you have been in the group for a while and have a history of attending and paying for events without any problems you can contact me about paying me at the event. This accommodation is provided as a convenience -- you are still responsible for paying even if you do not attend.

Important Note: I will manually update the RSVPs of people who pay by check or use the honor system, but it's possible the event will fill up before I check my email. If that happens I will add you to the waiting list.

Fee Disclosure:
The $15.00 fee includes a little extra to cover PayPal's fees (74 cents) as well as's $144 annual cost.

Refund Policy:
If you cancel on or before Wednesday, May 8th you will get a full refund. There are no refunds for cancellations after the deadline or if you do not show up to the event. If something comes up at the last minute you are welcome to find someone else to attend instead of you. The reason refunds are not given after the deadline is that I agree to pay for everyone who has paid me at that point.

What about kids?
Kids are welcome, but pay full price. However, young children who will only nibble off of your plate can attend at no charge. And those who won't eat much (honor system) pay half price. Please note in the comment section of your RSVP if kids will be joining you.

What if it rains?
Monty's will have a canopy in place for our event. The cookout will go on rain or shine.

This is a vegetarian group. Why is the cookout vegan?
This group has members who are vegetarian, vegan, and just interested. Everyone is welcome. I think it's important for our events to have a menu that not only has something for everyone, but where everyone can eat everything.

    It was a fantastic lineup of great food and we were lucky enough to have tolerable weather. Had very interesting conversations with interesting people. It always amazes me that I re-discover what a small world it is. I visited with a person that was at Davis California during the same exact years I was there (1982 to 1985). Wow... it boggles my mind.

    Outstanding! Delicious food and great people. As a vegan, I appreciate being able to taste a little of everything without having to ask "what's in" everything. Thanks!

    Had a great time last year, but can't fit it into my schedule right now. Hope this becomes a regular event!
