    It was a nice day and it was great to meet new Meetup members! The food was all great- except for the free-loading bugs:-)

    The picnic was great. The VSDC should sponsor a lot more picnics.

    Great location. Wide variety of vegan food. The weather was ideal. Met some new and old friends. The doggies were fun to watch and play with. As usual Diane did a great job organizing this event.

    If anyone is driving from Maryland, like near Baltimore or Columbia, let me know, I'm burnt out driving to DC

    Anyone carpooling for this one? I haven't checked in here until now and realized that it's not exactly near the other one! Friendship Heights Metro would be a good place.

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.
