What is your relationship to Veganism?

A vegetarian since 1982, and vegan, briefly, in the '90s, I've written extensively on the subject of animal rights to further the cause. I'm on the board of the San Francisco Vegetarian Society, and regularly attend veg*n Meetups in the East Bay

Do you have a favorite vegan or vegan friendly restaurant in bay area? What is it?

Golden Lotus, on the corner of 13th and Franklin, in downtown Oakland.

As a courtesy to other members, only vegan foods should be ordered when we are out. That means no animal products or by-products. Are you ok with this?

What Vasu M. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great MeetUp! Delicious food and great conversation will win people over to veganism, rather than academic lectures on animal rights... though there is a place for them as well: the other side keeps saying "so much..." even after I've repeatedly debunked it!
