     If you're a vegan, or are interested in veganism, this group is a great way to eat great food with a variety of great people. It's also become a great way to learn more about relevant topics through speaker events.

     I own Munch Restaurant so have not had the opportunity to participate at any of the Meetups. But I can certainly say that when any of the meetup diners were at Munch they were nothing but wonderful. The servers enjoyed them, they were always patient when it may have taken a little too long to bring out the food and Debra has always been amazing. The meet up diners are just a bunch of great people out to have some fun and food. Thank you so much for coming in. Robbin

     It was difficult trying to eat a vegan diet, but with the guidance of Vegan Chicago I was able to reduce animal products by 75%. I feel energetic, healthier, I lost the bad fats from my body, and I learned that there is no need to be cruel to people or animals. Everything you need ,Vitimin, protein and antioxidants, can be found in plants. Thank you for your support and guidance. Most of all, thank you for not judging me. Keep up the awesome work.

    green g. on Apr 14, 2007.

  • Vegan Chicago

     I would suggest some kind of game. Maybe everyone has to talk to someone they don't know and share one interesting thing about him/her to the group. If the group is too big, they could break up into smaller groups. 

    Tonya S. on Jan 6, 2007.

  • Vegan Chicago

     I'm grateful for the chance to meet fellow vegans/vegetarians/like-minded people, and enjoy good food with them! Thanks to the organizers! :) 

    Tiffany on Oct 7, 2006.

  • Vegan Chicago

     From now on when I attend events there should be "Feed The Hungry" donations set up. YOU YES YOU you can feed the hungry and by hungry I mean myself the only reason I couldn't order more at veggie bite was because I ran out of funding. I mean all I ate was 2 combos, a side order, a cake, and two medium ice creams. And I still wounding up eating my friends vegan french toast from pick me up later that day. So people put a little extra money aside for me for the next event. In return I will grow a really sweet beard, call myself Noah and eat 2 of everything off the menu. 

    x on May 10, 2006.

  • Vegan Chicago

     It was definately a great group and everyone was very friendly. I only wish I could have stayed longer and talked to more people.
