I know there has been a lot of confusion from first timers about the format of this month's meetup! Because Saturday nights are popular at Real Food Daily (and we have the benefit of two locations) we are suggesting you pair up with vegan friends who you've met at past Vegan Drinks and other Vegan functions to get to know each other better over dinner at either RFD location on the 27th using the Vegan Drinks RFD Discount Coupon (I will email this to all RSVPers). (We have nearly 70 combined RSVPs so far)
For those who are solo and want to meet new vegan friends, please use the Forum http://www.meetup.com/vegandrinks/messages/boards/thread/8734622
or the RSVP comments for Santa Monica
or West Hollywood Meetup
to find dining companions. Santa Monica Bakery side has a small community table for Solo Diners, but I think it will be very hard to figure out who is there for Vegan Drinks since there is no set time (feel free to set a time by messaging other solo members) and we will not be hosting (however, Jason & I will be dining at either location with members of Vegan Drinks & other Vegan groups who we're taking the opportunity to get to know better, in the spirit of this format.).
NEXT MONTH (April 24th), will be a BLAST for SOLO & NEWBIES. I PROMISE! March 27th Vegan Drinks is more of a Vegan Friend's Appreciation Night in honor of our 20th Meetup! I wish there was more time at each event to get to know all the outstanding Vegans who attend. You must attend to understand the extraordinary caliber of people we meet over drinks.
PS. Happy Meat Out Day!
