Greetings everyone. I hope you are having a good summer.
A couple upsetting things happened at the event tonight and I wanted to share my thoughts.
First, several people didn't show and didn't bother to cancel even though there were five people on the waiting list. If you are not going to go, please cancel at least 24 hours in advance to let others make their own plans to attend when they are moved to the event and off the wait list.
There have been a few people that have continually been no shows--people will be dropped from the group going forward if they are no shows on multiple occasions. It's not fair to those on the wait list to not get in and then the group is also then smaller than what we reserved.
Second, someone brought a guest unannounced (even though there were five people on the waiting list) who then ordered meat and none of us was aware until the dish was served at the table.
As our group description states, we only eat vegan at these outings. That means no fish, no poultry, no eggs, no dairy, no animal products at all. We come together to be supportive of the cruelty free meal and it's not fair to attendees to have guests order/eat meat or to hear comments that are negative about vegans.
Please only participate in these meals if you would like to enjoy a vegan meal in a positive environment with interesting people that share an interest in a cruelty free diet.
