march vegan meetup at ian's

the milwaukee vegan meetup is emerging from a brief hibernation ;) to announce our exciting march meetup at ian’s pizza! we’ll be meeting at the east side location (on north ave.) for an informal lunch gathering. hope you can join us!

we have a LOT of new members these days but of course also a pile of old friends, and we hope to see a fun mixture of new faces at this event. whether you are new to veganism or an old pro at plant-eating, everyone is welcome to indulge in this vegan pizza extravaganza.

colleen lawrence of veganmilwaukee.com has been working hard behind the scenes with the manager at ian’s, and they’re cooking up a variety of great vegan options just for our meetup. if you’ve never been to ian’s before, they offer slices that are a little out of the ordinary—in a good way! one of their staples is the mac & cheese slice, and their vegan version is delicious! they also have a great burrito pizza (beans, guac, rice, red onions, vegan cheese and a vegan sour cream drizzle), and a really tasty vegan BBQ chick’n pizza. you’ll probably see all of those, plus several more options they’re excited to offer us.

also, for future reference, ian’s on north ave. has “vegan night” EVERY tuesday night, so you can get your vegan slice on every week. you can also order a full-size vegan pizza any day of the week. yay ian’s!

if you’re interested, you can keep tabs on ian’s online in a variety of places:

their website: http://www.ianspizza.com

their facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/ianspizzamilwaukee

their twitter feed: @IansPizzaMKE

please remember to RSVP by 1pm on friday march 1st, and please arrive by 1pm on the day of the event to be sure you have a seat. as a courtesy to the restaurant (and your fellow diners), PLEASE remember to change your RSVP if your plans change. seating is limited and we want to be able to provide an accurate head count to the restaurant. the wait list will activate once we are full, and as things change you will be notified via email if a spot opens up.

the restaurant is a pay-as-you-order establishment, so no money worries at this one. they accept cash or credit cards, and they also accept tips. ;) let’s be sure to show our appreciation for this great event!

    One or two large tables would have been better. Have a great time.

    I thought the meetup was good. It was my first meetup and it was nice to talk to a couple pleople before the meetup officially began. However, I think it would have been good if we would have went around and introduced ouselves. At times I felt a little out of place. I think it is because I tend to be shy in groups of people I don't know and the fact that it was my first meetup. I would consider attending another meetup though!

      That's a great idea to have introductions. Sorry I couldn't stay, but I appreciate everyone who listened to my schpiel about the Wisconsin Conservation Congress. I hope you can come on April 8 to vote at 7 pm at Nathan Hale High School (11601 W. Lincoln Ave. West Allis)

    I am new to vegan and raw food and wanted to experience the visit to Ian's so after I figured out that the waitlist meant more than likely I would not get to go with the meet up group- I decided to go alone and just check it out and order something different to eat. I did I ordered a vegan mushroom pizza slice. Although I did enjoy the food I had some concerns with cleanliness, meaning the servers didn't wear gloves, the cashier worked the register and assisted with orders without washing his hands and the employee who does deliveries had very long hair that was not in a net. Outside of those things I thought Ian's was a great place to hang out!!!
    Yes I would go again lol

    I'm unfortunately unable to make it, but I hope to in the future! I'm new to Milwaukee and to being a vegan. It would be great to meet some folks.

    what does the wait list mean? Is this event not for new comers?

    March 1, 2013

    • Rhonda A.

      wow so that means the waitlist people are not attending?

      March 1, 2013

    • lindsay

      right, the wait list was activated once the event filled up (we have to be careful not to overwhelm the restaurant), and now if/when people change their RSVP to "no," people who are on the waiting list will be moved over to "yes." hope that helps!
