The Tucson Vegan & Vegetarian Monthly Meetup

On the FIRST Wednesday of every month, we meet for dinner and conversation at Lovin' Spoonfuls, Tucson's first ALL-VEGAN restaurant, on North Campbell in the annex to the Albertson's shopping center.

Lovin' Spoonfuls is fast-casual (order at the counter, seat yourself). We don't limit the number who can RSVP, so feel free to invite your family and friends. There's a number of tables along the wall to your left as you walk in, reserved for seating on a first-come basis. If these tables fill up, if possible we may connect additional tables or you can find seating at another table until space opens up, and people are encouraged to mingle.

Plan to arrive anytime between 6:30 and 7pm -- better if we don't all arrive at once and overwhelm the staff. Come hungry, plan to have a leisurely meal, and leave room for dessert or just snack on appetizers. Have you tried their shakes yet? Yum!!

Hope to see you there!

    I was able to speak to many of you last night but wanted to pass along to everyone that we (Melissa & Ali) are having a potluck on Sunday the 7th from 12-3--all of you are invited. There will be lots of vegan food, and other foods too. Here is the info: In lieu of meals out, we are beginning a monthly-ish potluck at our home, to which ALL of our friends--real life and online--are warmly invited. Bring along a friend or family member. Please bring a yummy dish to share, and include a list of ingredients so that those on special diets can make informed decisions. But if you can't bring food, don't worry. There will be plenty. We will provide 3 vegan dishes--green salad, gazpacho, and fruit-sweetened pies, and ice and water.

    We will have disposable dishes and flatware, but encourage you to bring your own reusable dishes. 5701 E 3rd St

    Great time, great food, great people! I've been to Spoons many times, but this is the first time I had the Mexicali Beans & Rice. It was beautiful! And it was SO delicious. Love it!

    Enjoyed Buddah's Feast with steamed veggies, organic brown rice. I loved the Whole Food menu! The meals can be ordered oil free & GMO free!!! Had a glass of organic red wine & dessert was grilled bananas, blueberries, walnuts, sprinkled cinnamon. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal! Thank you for offering so many selections on your menu, Peggy!
