we're going to mix things up a little for our june event... hope you can join us at halo in bay view for the snack & shop!
halo soap is a great local business with *tons* of vegan-friendly products, including soap (of course), body lotion, soy candles, pre-shave oil, aftershave gel, lip balm, scrubs, bath bombs, and more. they offer a variety of skin care for everyone, regardless of gender, and they have some good products for the little ones as well!
halo will be letting us have the run of the place on the evening of the meetup (i.e., we'll be in there after-hours), and they'll have samples available, as well as a little station to try out the scrubs. and not only THAT, but they're offering a 10% discount on all purchases, hooray! if you've never been to halo and would like a sneak peek at some of their offerings, you can check out their etsy shop here:
we wouldn't want you to shop on an empty stomach, though, right? right! so we'll have some tasty vegan snacks available for everyone as you browse... we're hoping to bring some of the new buzzy snacks like the earth balance vegan cheese nips and sour cream & onion chips, and the maple bacon potato chips from kettle, and we're also thinking about some awesome vegan doughnuts from larsen bakery. we'll have some healthy snacks, too, so we can balance out the junk. ;) anyhow, we'll have a nice variety of grub (and drinks) for you to snack on while you shop for everyone on your gift list (including yourself). of course, no one is obligated to purchase anything! you can just come to snack and socialize and browse, no worries.
as for logistics: we'll be doing the pre-pay thing as usual, to cover the snack buffet... just $5.46 per person this time. in order to RSVP for this event, you'll need to pre-pay 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 & that's how she'll collect the snack money.
the event will start at 5pm, but you can arrive later than that if it works better with your schedule... this is a "drop in and hang out for however long you like" kind of event. just please find one of us and check in when you arrive.
hope to see you there!
