The name says it all. Gather with the girls and enjoy a vegan lunch and a little conversation. Think "girls night out" only daytime and without the crowded dance floor. Now, a hangover is still very much a possibility. On occasion, members may gather to volunteer at a shelter, take a field trip to a rescue farm, or do a little Vegan Shopping.
Who can join this group?
Currently our members range from ages mid 20's to mid 40's. We are students, business women, and moms. If you do not fall within this age group you are still welcome to send a request to join as we hope to expand our age range in the near future.
How can I Join this group?
Just complete the membership form via meetup. Allow at least one week for someone to get back to you. Please note: if you do not have a photo of your face in your profile, we will not be able to approve your membership request. We gets lots of requests with random works of art, dogs, flowers, logos- but this group is about making human connections. If your request is declined you can always change your photo and resubmit.
When do you meet?
VLWL (NYC) meet at least once a month on the second weekend of the month. We alternate between Saturdays and Sundays. Most meetings are "brunch" themed, but there are the occasional evening events.
How do you determine where we will go?
Currently any member may suggest a vegan outing. To suggest an event please click on "Our Calendar", then click on "Suggested". One of the group organizers will then look at your suggestion and determine when it will fit into our schedule. When suggestiothe menu is not 100% Vegan it must have at least 4 Vegan options on the menu. When suggesting a restaurant, take a look at whether there are any Raw or Gluten Free options on the menu. We have several members who have dietary restrictions and try to include everyone.
Is this free?
It is free to join, but most events require some fee for dining.
