Let's take a little trip to Philadelphia - who is in? The vegan eats are great in Philly - we will check out some of these awesome ALL-VEGAN spots: Blackbird, Hip City Veg, Grindcore Cafe, Mi Lah & Vedge.
I have booked a few hotel rooms at the Downtown Marriott Courtyard - I was able to get a good discount rate of $118 plus taxes/fees for a room with a King bed (total $136) and you can add a rollaway for $20 and $199 plus taxes for a suite with 1 king and 1 sofabed (total $230) and you can add a rollaway for $20.
I have booked a few rooms and will cancel what we don't need - for planning purposes I will need definite RSVPs well in advance, whether you want your own room and in what configuration (e.g., a couple wanting a room with just a king to themselves) or to share (and whether you have someone you can make sharing arrangements with or you want my help figuring it out), and I will need pre-payment before I consider you to have RSVP'd!
We will also carpool and everyone will share the gas and toll costs within their particular carpool group.
If there are people wanting to make other arrangements (stay with family, or get their own hotel room), that works fine for me.
