    CANCELED DUE TO HURRICANE SANDY!

    RESCHEDULED TO WEDNESDAY, NOV. 7th.


    Jay Astafa, whose birthday is TODAY (Oct 6—happy birthday, Jay!!) is the talented chef who created 3 Brothers' vegan menu, which is here: www.3brotherspizzacafe.com/vegan.html

    If you've been to 3 Brothers, I don't have to tell you what a treat it is.

    If you've never been, you must come!


    As always, be mindful of VLI's RSVP/no show policy (here: www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island/about/). If you say you're coming, please come. It's not fair to those on the waiting list* when people are no-shows.

    And also please follow VLI's policy that "at VLI meetups, the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness." (In other words, we expect everyone to order only vegan fare. Even if you or your guests don't think of yourselves as "vegan.")

     

    At 3 Brothers, diners can have separate checks. I encourage everyone to tip generously.


    My cell phone is[masked], should you need to reach me at the event.


    Question: Should we wear costumes, since it will be almost Halloween? Let me know your preference when you RSVP.

    *The setting for this meetup is "automatic waiting list," which means if a member is first in line on the waiting list, they're moved into a spot automatically as soon as one opens up, and are notified by email. The only exception is if the member on the waiting list wants to bring guests: that member and their guests will be skipped over until enough spots open up at the same time for them all.

    Hey all, since there's a flood watch until 6 PM Tuesday and gusts could reach 85 miles an hour, we're rescheduling for Wednesday, Nov. 7th. Hope you can make it! http://www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island/events/88955662/

      There isn't much that'll get me out in bad weather, George, but the company of like-minded, compassionate folks is one of those things. And Jay's menu. :) Still, Sandy isn't just bad weather, Sandy is a hurricane. And I just learned that the LIRR has suspended service; there's a flood watch until 6 PM Tuesday; and gusts could reach 85 miles an hour. Since we may lose power before people can change RSVPs, I'm making the decision now to cancel. To those of you who were looking forward to coming in costume, I'd be up for a November costume party at 3 Brothers. Sound good? I'll check with Jay about dates. It might still need to be a weeknight. Stay tuned...

    Jennifer and any one else who in interested I am leaving my reservation as "coming", and will "try" to change that as is possible. Since there are 33 coming I don't think my yes/no attendance is going to leave 3 Bros with leftovers, though I am concerned if it get to the "waiting list". I VERY much want to come to this event, have been looking forward to it with much anticipation, BUT the next 48 hours are a big ? mark in my life. Is media "rampping up the rhetoric concerning SANDY"? One more foot of water than Irene brought Aug. a year ago means I could be w'out a house to live in, and I will have evacuated with 4 pets. Hey you got to eat somewhere and the pets could be in car outside 3 Bros.!!! Since I'm not sure of elec. and therefor internet I'm posting this now, and I will make all efforts to keep it current, but due to circumstances "beyond my control" I'm asking a bit of "lee way" on attendance policy. Thanks guys, Karen

    Hey Jennifer, I know my RSVP included an opinion on costumes, but NOTHING here on subject, are you keeping it a secret?

      Heh, I see why it might seem that way! No, that wasn't my intention. But I realize now that my use of the mandatory-question Meetup.com feature probably led folks to think it would be redundant to share their preference in their RSVP *comment* as well. Everyone can see the RSVP comments, whereas the respondents' answers to the mandatory question I set up are visible only to the organizer (which does provide some privacy, in case someone doesn't want to cast their yea-or-nay costume vote so publicly). Want me to put your response into your comment for all to see? I can do that, no prob. Right now, by the way, out of 11 respondents, 4 said no costume, 2 said ok either way, and 5 said they'll come in costume.

      Thanks, that helps a great deal. Now that it's 3 X 11, (how that's going to work I'm not so sure)...20 is a CROWD there! Unusual for me, but I happen to have an idea for a VERY unique one, and would like to use it, but don't want to be only one. Is it still roughly 1/2 wearing costume, that's good enough for me. Thanks.
