Announcing a new Meetup for Vegetarian & Vegan Meetup of Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill!
What: Valentine's Day Antidote - Play and a meal!
When: February 14,[masked]:45 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: No Valentine this year? Valentine not in town? Or would you just like to boycott the overly commercial options for going out? Let's go out for some local theatre and a veg meal!
The play starts at 2. You must be there by 1:45. There are tickets reserved for us, but seating is first come, first seated. Last time we got there early and managed to get great seats all together. This is a small black box theatre - nothing fancy. I have enjoyed all the performances I've seen there so far.
When you RSVP, please indicate if you'd like to do lunch or an early dinner. The play will be over about 4:30. I was thinking Neo China again (about 15-20 mins away) - they treated us very well last time. If we eat after there is less rush and we can chat about the play, but I realize not everyone wants to eat that early - we'll vote!
If you are the type of person to take leftovers home, I urge you to bring your own reusable container from home. As veg*ns, we can be examples in the environmental movement as well!
Also, if you need to change your plans, please practice courtesy and do so as soon as you know, not one day before or day of the event. This last minute change should be reserved for rare situations.

Bare Theatre presents: The Tempest by William Shakespeare
Bare Theatre will close its fourth consecutive season with the vibrant, magical tale of Shakespeare?s The Tempest.
Considered a Shakespearean romance, The Tempest is set far away from ordinary life and tells the tale of a shipwrecked king and his brother, two young lovers and a drunken trio of a fool, a clown and a monster. All of their fates are carefully watched over and manipulated by a powerful sorcerer and a mystical spirit beholden to him.
Critically acclaimed director, Carmen maria-Mandley creates a whirlwind storm of song, dance, humor and fantasy bringing to life one of Shakespeare?s most exotic tales. A cast of twenty combines live a cappella singing, modern dancing, and cirque-style clowning to craft a production that will thrill audiences of all ages.
Bare Theatre is a Raleigh-based company that began its first full season in 2005 with a Rogue Company production of Titus Andronicus, which was awarded runner-up for the top ten shows in 2005 by the News & Observer and The Classical Voice of North Carolina. Bare Theatre has continued to receive critical acclaim, most recently with its production of Twelfth Night in 2007 being named one of the year?s ten best shows by the News & Observer and Othello in 2008, with one reviewer noting ?As one young man said to his father at the play?s close, ?This felt real, Dad?? (Kathy Justice, Independent Weekly, 20 February 2008). Bare Theatre is a resident company at Common Ground Theatre.
