the milwaukee vegan meetup would like to announce our august meetup with simmer truck! we’ll be meeting for a monday evening dinner in the park; 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 lovely vegan sampler.
colleen lawrence has been working hard behind the scenes with the owners of simmer truck, and they’re cooking up a variety of great vegan options just for our meetup. if you’re unfamiliar with the name, simmer truck entered the milwaukee food truck scene this year. the owners, steve and jennifer, have reached out to the vegan community to share some delicious food buffet-style and get your feedback. although they have daily vegan offerings from their truck, they have created some special items for our meetup, including a vegan creme brulee! keep in mind that they also offer catering, so don't be afraid to talk to them about potential vegan options for your upcoming events. we’ll be trying a sampler of their vegan soups, salad, and panini. a beverage and the aforementioned creme brulee are included, so we think you’ll find this is a pretty great dinner.

the park we're meeting at is very small, with only a few picnic tables, so please feel free to bring lawn chairs or a blanket if you can, so that everyone has room. look for us at the corner of locust & bremen, in riverwest. it's a little spot of green near the riverwest public house.
please remember to RSVP by 9pm on thursday august 15th, and please arrive by 6.30pm on the day of the event. we want to be able to provide an accurate head count to the vendor in advance, so RSVPs will CLOSE on thursday august 15th at 9pm. plan ahead! :) if for some reason you are unable to attend after you have RSVP'd and paid, you can give your spot to a friend (let us know) or contact us with any questions.
because they are offering a set menu, there will be ONE SET PRICE for everyone: $16.80 per person gets you a shot at everything in the sampler-buffet, and includes tax.
IT’S BEEN WORKING WELL FOR US, SO WE’RE GOING TO KEEP AT IT: PRE-PAY AT RSVP! in order to RSVP for this event, you'll need to pre-pay for your meal using paypal here on the site. there will be no refunds, so please be sure that you will be able to attend before RSVP'ing yes and paying your moolah. also, please note that paypal will say you are paying "Alice's Natural Dog Treats"— that's correct. this is colleen's company and she'll be collecting money via this paypal account and then paying the final bill, so you won't have to worry about that at the restaurant.
see you there!
