The Winter Vegan Tart Trip {+Ethiopian Food, Ms Cupcake & drinks@The Dog Star!}

Vegan Tarts with chilly hearts, warm your cockles down at Brixton's Christmas Market; yummy food a plenty (& more!) awaits, just days before Xmas (!); so wrap up warm, don't forget mittens, & a cosy hat!

http://www.thevegantart.co.uk >> http://www.facebook/thevegantart

Just like last time, let's meet at;

Brixton Tube Station at 12:30pm; (I might be hungover, hopefully not {??}, from a certain ladies birthday party the night before, but yeah, sticking with 12.30pm! ;-D )

& the following buses stop near by

>>45, 59, 109, 118, 133, 159, 250, 333
........& then wonder down the market to The Vegan Tart & Saba's Ethiopian food & Juice stall (great vegan option for anyone who fancies it!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

.....& instead of perching/standing, like last time, :) , there is a kind of seating area near by......

It's up the stairs, leading to the entrance to the Recreation Centre, just to the left as you get to the top of the stairs; it's like a small park only more walls than flower beds & certainly no grass, but I think it's ideal to have a sit, eat & chat there! And as it is slightly enclosed, might be warmer too!

So, latecomers, get yourselves down Brixton Station Road; if you don't see a group of vegans queuing by Saba or loitering at The Vegan Tart stand, pop up those stairs to the Recreation Centre & look to your left!! :)

 

 

 

Later, we'll wonder along via Ms Cupcake, for any ''cupcake requirements'' so, any latecomers, pop by Ms Cupcake if you arrive around 2 or nearing 3, lets say!! :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, possibly gone 3pm(ish, or a tad earlier?); The Dog Star pub!! A spacious place, big enough for a bunch of us to get warm, have a beer & a good natter!! :)

 

 

So, very latecomers, (by 4ish?) you'll find us at the pub, a short stroll from Ms Cupcake!! :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, after the success of the first trip, I look forward to the second trip*!! All the best, Bye for now, Jess :)

{*...to the Vegan Tart; this'll be the third trip to everything else!!}

    Hi everyone! It was lovely to see all of you who said 'Bah' Humbug' to the 'drizzle' & joined us 'vegan heads' {Haha Beenal! :) } down in Brixton! So lovely to meet such lovely people; now I'm off to sleep, eventually, as that's my partying 3 days in a row of an evening completed!! I will contemplate my next meet up idea in due course; next up? I'm looking forward to roast potatoes & the like! Etc, etc....oh & indeed the Doctor Who Christmas Special!!! :) All the best, bye for now, see you all again at some point next year!! Jess :) x

      You are so generous cher. :) but yes, this would've been a nice little birthday cake... I even had some candles with me. :)

    • Jono

      LOL! It's fine - I'm too old to really get into celebrating it but maybe next year I'll make it more of a bash. Mum already bought loads of cakes so don't worry - I didn't go without :0-)

    Despite the horrid weather is was a good afternoon and for the first part I was allowed to gate-crash the vegan LGBT Meet-up.

  • Dumisani

    Thanks to all who came along to the meet up braving horrible weather! Sorry about savoury tart, will try to make two for the next market and maybe a different type of savoury treat. Come down and see us on the 5th Jan for our next market in Brixton.

    All the best,
    D & A x

    A wonderful day of vegan treats with lovely people. Could someone please order better weather for the next vegan tart ? And would it be possible to get the guys at the tarts stall to make more savory things? ;)

    I know Jess won't mind me jumping on board to mention some info because she is such a wonderful person...... tickets for the Bowl For Oceans fundraiser for Sea Shepherd are being sold in Ms Cupcake if you wanna buy one during this event. Ms Cupcake gets a pound for every ticket they sell so you would be helping Sea Shepherd AND a local vegan business. xx

      And I will be in the area with the LGBT Vegan London group so you will probably bump into a few of us, too! Hope to see a few people tomorrow.

  • Lewis

    Are we meeting at 1230 or 1330?

    December 21, 2012

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Hi Lewis; I'm sticking with 12.30pm, even with the possibility of a hangover after tonight, but the idea is if you can't make 12.30pm, met us anytime after that, you'll find us down the market or at the pub!! See you tomorrow! Bye for now, Jess

      December 21, 2012

    • Lewis

    Hey, I'm still up for going along. I want to try this Ethiopian place. To hijack this meet up, I'm going for lunch with Olaf and Roisin St The Ragged Canteen in Vauxhall at 1pm today if anyone wants to come. It's a lesser known vege cafe.
