Jim Dee here from Pure Jeevan and the Pittsburgh meetup group... Just wanted to announce a *new meetup* date! We were just talking with some people from the Capital Area (D.C.) raw food meetup and thought that a combo Pittsburgh / DC meetup might be fun. So, we all just went nuts and planned something right on the spot!
The short version: Next Saturday, September 19, @ high noon... "Pgh./DC Meetup Picnic" at Berkeley Springs, WV. Travel to WV (a just few hrs. drive from Pgh.) and get to know some of the DC raw foodie people!
Berkeley Springs is a really nice (but small) public park in West Virginia about half-way between Pittsburgh and DC. Here's the site: http://www.berkeleyspringssp.com I traveled there a few weeks back with Melissa, Dave, Ella, and Bethany (all from our meetup) on the way to Raw Spririt East. We had a super time soaking in the spring water and checking out all of the cool alternative shops. I did a write-up and posted some video on our blog, if you're interested: http://purejeevan.com/blog/?p=1509. You should (if you love fresh spring water) also bring some jugs / bottles so that you can load up on this awesome, healing H2O (all for free!).
Basic map... http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Pittsburgh,+PA&daddr=%232+S.+Washington+St.,+Berkeley+Springs,+WV+25411&hl=en&geocode=&mra=ls&sll=39.628218,-78.227806&sspn=0.006826,0.01354&g=%232+S.+Washington+St.,+Berkeley+Springs,+WV+25411&ie=UTF8&z=8 (says 2.5 hrs travel time)...
Anyway, I don't know how this meetup thing works, officially. So, I don't know if this is an official meetup or not. But, we're definitely going, and hope others from the Pgh. group will, too. I didn't register or anything with Berkeley Springs. So, it's not official as far as they're concerned, either. But it's a public park, and seems amenable to people gathering and having picnics, so all should be fine.
Bring a raw vegan dish to feed 6-8 people, please, as it'll be a potluck!
Hope 2 C U there!!!
ps That park has wi-fi, too.
