August Vegan Meetup at Kathy's House

  • Aug 4, 2012 · 12:00 PM
  • Kathy E's backyard

Please join us for the August vegan meetup--potluck picnic edition!--at the home of longtime member and animal rights activist Kathy E in Glendale. Whether you are a long-time vegan who wants to try new dishes or a new vegan, curious, or just willing to try, you will not want to miss this fun backyard experience.

Kim Fisher Isaacs says... Kathy has generously offered to open her home to us, once again, for the August meetup. We will be having a picnic potluck in her beautifully landscaped backyard. It is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to share their best vegan recipes with the group and enjoy the lovely summer weather. Each member should bring a vegan dish to share with approximately 25 people and specify the food in the comments section of your RSVP.

In addition, please bring a plate, napkin, personal beverage, and utensils (for eating and for serving) for you and each of your personal guests.

Finally, please bring a lawn chair so that you have somewhere to sit! :) We are in need of folding, portable banquet and/or card tables. If you have one that you can share, please contact Kathy directly at [masked].

Once all the RSVP’s are in, we will email you Kathy’s address. In other words, please RSVP before the deadline to ensure that you receive the address! ;)

The spirit of vegan meetup is to promote and support a plant-based, cruelty free lifestyle and we therefore request that attendees choose only vegan options at our shared meals. If you are new to vegan cooking, you can find awesome vegan recipes online, including sites like,,, and

Please remember to RSVP by Wednesday, August 1st, and arrive by 12noon on the day of to guarantee a shot at all the goodies in store for you!

***In addition, PLEASE remember to change your RSVP as your plans change.*** We'd like to know if we should be waiting on you or if we can go ahead and eat! ;)

    Hi all ;
    Lindsay wondered why all the no shows. I bet it was the horrible weather. I followed the forecast and changed my reservation when it looked like it really would be that bad. Maybe the others should be more considerate rather than just not show up. Too bad it wasn't this weekend when it is so gorgeous outside.

    I am guilty! But only this one time! I knew I couldn't make it on Friday and made a mental note to call Kathy and then forgot to do it )))-: I have spoken with her and apologized. These no shows are getting rediculous and have been going on for over a year. I am wondering whether Milwaukee even wants to continue having this group. It is frustrating to go through all the work to set them up and then have people show no common courtesy to change their RSVP's as their plans change. We look like idiots in restaurants when our numbers don't match the RSVP's and tables are set, servers are scheduled and additional vegan food is bought and preped, ect.

    we apparently had a VERY LARGE amount of no-shows at this event, which is truly unfortunate. can anyone give some insight?

    as the RSVP deadline has now passed, i have sent an email with directions (and the address) to everyone who RSVP'd "yes." if you RSVP "yes" after the deadline, you'll need to get in touch with me personally to get the address. :)
