How did you become a vegetarian? Would you like to host a meetup gathering at your home? Would you like to help plan our annual New Orleans Veggie Fest?

That's lots of questions in one. I'm not going to answer them. I'll just tell you that I've been vegan since March of 2006, I like to get things done and make things happen, and I love to eat awesome vegan food! I write a blog called New Orleans in Green - you can find it here: I'm trying to build the most comprehensive list possible of restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, etc. around town with decent vegan options. Know of something great that I haven't listed yet? Please let me know!! I also write posts on awesome veg and AR-related happenings around town. My most recent enterprise is Vegan Drinks New Orleans! I really hope you'll check it out and join our events. You can read the blog at, and "like" us on Facebook at hearts, mb


I'm vegan in New Orleans!

What Melissa B. is saying about this Meetup Group

I've had nothing but good experiences with the Nola Veg Meetup. The Veg Fest is incredible, and the people at the small events made me feel immediately welcomed into the community here. This group is what's given me the opportunity to start the Vegan Drinks New Orleans event. Community is so important, and we've got it - we can do anything!
