What we're about

* Stay hydrated
* Stay safe
* Stay healthy
* Stay vegan!
* Continue working on SOMETHING worthwhile. When it's safe, we will resume some in-person activity

A vegan meetup is where vegans (whatever their PHILOSOPHY about being vegan) and vegan-oriented persons (NOT "tire-kickers" who come "to gawk at the vegans") with similar interests get together and hang out. If you TWEET, we instantly become a TWEETUP.

DUES is $12/year, but you can give the organizer $10 in person - and all is cool. But you can coast for 6 months for no cost, and if you volunteer for Fair Foods twice (4 hours total) or for any VEGETARIAN or ANIMAL RIGHTS CHARITY or nonprofit (including BVS, MARC, PETA, Laura Ray, etc.) - 4 hours total (and you report it), you get your annual membership free. Also, if you attend any THREE (3) in-person events POSTED on this meetup, you get your your annual membership free, and that counts for the other two sister meetups - if you're enrolled in either or both of them.

Because of our array of motives, some focus more on diet alone, while others are concerned with an integrated world-and-life view. We're a diverse lot, so we'll meet LOTS of folks whose interests are somewhat different from our own, but who share the vegetarian and vegan interests with usm but we may NOT agree with everyone on how important each of the elements in another's vegan worldview and personality is.

We used to have >6000 members; they were mostly lurkers, and only a subset of those >6000 members would attend any particular event. But now we have about 600 members, and the same dynamic is seen.

Further, by networking with BVS, GBBCC, MARC, BVA, NEAVS, other veg groups, and other meetups, we get to know one another.

Grasshopper, My Thai, Veggie Planet, Veggie Galaxy, Clover Food Lab, True Bistro, Red Lentil, Organic Natural, Life Alive, and others vegan hangouts are our favorite meeting sites.

We're always "BECOMING a vegan group"; BRING SOMETHING VEGAN-ORIENTED TO SHARE (newspaper clipping, book or DVD, photos, etc.) with other attendees as a way for them to get to know you and you to know them. Sharing IS "becoming" for veg*ans.

What and how we share? A news article, a story with a vegan interest, some information (old or new) with a vegan slant, a memento of traveling as a vegan, info on a great vegan website or resource or event, etc. Be creative. Pleasantly surprise us.

While a monthly dining out group is hosted by Rick Williams, a monthly vegan meetup also is held on the 1st Saturday of each month - 11:30 am to 2 pm - at the Clover Food Lab at either:
* Harvard Square, Dunster Street? of Mass Avenue, Downstairs, Cambridge, MA 02138
or
*Clover Food Lab or elsewhere (watch the announcements)

Clover Food Lab is the BVS default location

Sunday, October 23, 11am-1pm.

Monthly Vegan Meetup

Needs a location

We'll dine on good food and enjoy each other's company.

The location changes every month so check back for details.

Also check out:
http://www.meetup.com/Boston-Vegetarian-Meetup/
for more details.

This monthly dining-out social event is cross-listed with the monthly 'dining out' meetups of:

• the Boston Vegetarian Meetup (some may not even be vegetarians)

• the Boston Vegan Meetup

• the Boston Abolitionist Vegan Meetup (harming animals for food or anything else is REALLY wrong! whatever anyone says about personal choice - and it needs to stop NOW)!!

If you're a member of more than one group, there's more company, but not everyone is on the same place of the same page. The event organizers will check redundant meetups and adjust their expectations. At least sign up in this one.

If you need to change your mind and not attend, PLEASE be sure to adjust your response(s) on Meetup.com.
