Vegan Drinks Portland

Vegan Drinks is a monthly (Third Wednesday) social networking event for vegan and veg-curious people. Vegan Drinks’ mission is to bring together a diverse group of people—from cupcake aficionados to animal advocates to veg*ns of all stripes in between—to build new coalitions and promote the sharing of resources. Vegan Drinks is for newbies and oldies. Grab a drink and a bite to eat from the excellent vegan selection at White Owl Social Club and relax in a low key atmosphere free from "Preaching to the Choir".

Show up and introduce yourself, pass around business cards (if you've got ‘em) and embarrass yourself at least once an hour.

Note for Non-Vegans: You're more than welcome, too! We completely welcome & appreciate your presence at Vegan Drinks. Its a great alternative way to learn more about veganism at your own pace and with a beer in your hand. Of course our hope is always that we can turn new people onto being vegan, but you can choose the level of vegan banter by politely excusing yourself from any conversation that you're not comfortable being in! Just please don't order anything non vegan at the meet up.

Whether you're a long-time vegan, or just veg-curious, make new friends and meet up with old ones at Vegan Drinks Portland!

    It would be good if we could all sit on the open picnic tables next time, where everyone can meet and mingle. We were able to talk with only a couple people.

      That's great feedback! I heard that throughout the evening too. I was going to reserve the back area when I got there, but I was concerned about people who didn't smoke being exposed to it. I think we should be ok though since the space is quite large.

    Thanks for organizing this Matthew. Let me know if you need help making it a recurring event in our group event listings. :)

      That would be great. That's how I have it configured in PMV as well.

    Someone left a blue "The North Face" jacket in a booth that we had the meetup event. That jacket is now at the White Owl lost and found.

    They made vegan specials just for us! Vegan Alfredo w/leeks and 'Chicken-Fried' Portobello with fries.

    Hi all. Look for me, wearing a striped gray and white shirt and green pants. Have a seat at a reserved section.

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.
