Each year we take our own food to our families for traditional Thanksgiving and then we host our real Vegan Thanksgiving the day after. It is a huge vegan pot-luck and is always a fabulous time. Please join us in the best holiday event of the year.

    Would anyone like to have my vegetable shavings and other such matter for composting? I live in an apartment and don't have the ability to do so. I'd be most happy to bring a paper bag with me.

    Anybody willing to give a ride from Pittsburgh or Bellevue to the dinner, please contact me on here!

    I'll really miss seeing everyone this year, and just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for having had the opportunity to attend this wonderful event in the past. Will be thinking of you while sharing some lentil loaf and vegan dark chocolate blackstrap cider brownies with my family in Ohio!

    Please put me on the waitlist for this! I am planning an alternative Thanksgiving feast possibly next year either the day before or the day after thanksgiving. Would anyone be interested?

      The day before, since Mike & Diane have this event annually.

    Hi Mike and Diane,
    You know me as Iris R's boyfriend. Iris had spinal surgery in Sept with 2 subsequent surgeries and 2 inpatient rehabs. She is experiences complicfations and we will not be able to attend your wonderful function this year. I know Iris would be glad to hear from folks in the Vegan community that she has known. Enjoy your Thanksgiving and your wonderful open house.

      Thanks for letting us know Jack. I am sorry to hear Iris is going through such a difficult time. I will send her an email.

  • Sydelle P.

    Shelagh,
    I am confirmed and hope to go with you.
    I am sorry you did not hear from me earlier--I tried to send you a message using an old email address I had for you--it must be obsolete. I don't know how to get it touch with you via this meetup. Could you email me and then I can get in touch with you directly? And I wanted to say that I was very glad to see you, too at the concert (it was my birthday).

    Had to change my reservation to a No, so that should open up two more spots for anyone on the wait list :).

    November 1, 2013

  • Sydelle P.

    Hello. I am very interested in attending but I don't have a car. I live in the East End. Perhaps I could carpool with someone coming from that direction? But--perhaps I am only on the waitlist after all...(Just read Shelagh's comment....)

    • Shelagh

      Hi Sydelle!
      If we both make it in, I'd be happy to drive you. I live in Regent Square.
      It was great seeing you at the last SongSpace, btw.

      October 16, 2013

    • Shelagh

      Actually, I just saw someone must have changed their RSVP and I'm now confirmed. Let me know if you get in as well and we can set up to go together.

      October 16, 2013

  • Shelagh

    Well shoot - I didn't realize I was on the waitlist when I RSVPed.

    It's the 29th which also happens to be the day I turn 50. I'll change the date when I get home. Meetup software isn't letting me edit the date from my iPhone.

  • Nancy L.

    Just curious - Thanksgiving is late this year - Nov 28. I haven't been to this event before but the summary says it's the Friday after Thanksgiving? I'd like to come and want to confirm the date. Thanks!

    February 3, 2013

    • Penny M.

      Yes, it is the day after Thanksgiving. We have attended the last 3 years and really look forward to it. Mike and Diane are excellent hosts. Plus we are all the best vegan cooks!!! Get your reservation in early cuz it always fills up.

      February 3, 2013

    • Amethyst

      So, is it on the 22nd as listed above? Or is it the day after Thanksgiving, which is Nov. 29 this year?

      February 4, 2013

  • Amethyst

    Bill, the kids and I will be there!
