What we're about

A meetup is where people with similar interests get together and hang out.

A vegetarian meetup is where vegetarians with similar interests get together and hang out. Of course, 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 interests with us.

Join us AND the other Vegetarians-Of-Boston Meetups for the Vegetarian Happy Hour [Happy Hour with Vegetarians]
6:30 pm-8:20 pm

We hold other events at an all-vegetarian restaurant, often by following the events of local vegetarian and animal rights groups.

A Vegan Meetup (which we also attend) is held on the 1st Saturday of each month
at Veggie Planet
47 Palmer Street
Cambridge, MA 02138
11:30 am to 2 pm

Dinner with Dharma is held on the 4th Friday at the Greater Boston Buddhist Cultural Center (GBBCC) at 950 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138 - $10 for the all-vegan buffet.

So, if you are also vegan, do (nominally or enthusiastically) join
the Boston VEGAN Meetup

We also tag along with BVS (BostonVeg.org), BVA (BostonVegan.org), Vegan Meetup events, and MARC.

You are encouraged to volunteer 50 cents/month to help defray costs ($6/year) - on a continuing basis (paid at Meetup OR online).

Weekly 90-minute walk in good weather

650 Huntington Ave

We will walk 5 miles in about 90 minutes. We will be joined by walkers from Mission Hill, and some from the starting point. We will depart close to 9:30 am and will not wait. On the first Saturday of each month we will enjoy the Boston Vegan Coffee #Tweetup at JP Licks in Brigham Circle, Mission Hill.

Boston Vegan Coffee #Tweetup at JP Licks in Brigham Circle, Mission Hill

JP Licks has (or tells us that they have) at least three (3) vegan ice creams each day - and they have soymilk (and some other plantmilks) for their ultra strong coffee. * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J.P._Licks * https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g60890-d3785751-r570901149-J_P_Licks-Cambridge_Massachusetts.html We will have a 'vegan coffee' each month (and you can buy something else, if you wish). So the cost will not become a barrier of entry, JP Licks does not require anyone to buy anything (because of their commitment to the affordable low-cost community). However, you will NEED to sign in - to register your intention to attend - at least one FULL calendar day in advance (by noontime on Friday - and inmail the organizer in advance, and introduce yourself), if you wish to atten. UNLESS THREE (3) persons OTHER than the organizer(s) sign up for this 1st Saturday of the month event, that day's event will be canceled. If you WANT to attend, IN-MAIL the organizers that you truly EXPECT to attend, and you will be counted as ONE attendee, unless you commit to bring yourself and one or two or more friends with you. We WANT to HOLD the event, but successfully HOLDING the event requires a threshold number of attendees and participants for sociability, fraternizing, socializing, getting-to-know-you activities, and conviviality. So registrants for any specific 1st Saturday of the month event SHOULD check on Friday evening to be sure that that 1st Saturday of the month event is 'still on'! It's all for you - to be sure that your time traveling to the site, and spending time and money there, and then traveling FROM the site are all well-invested life energies for you! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ask the counter staff member to seat you with the Vegan Meetup “Lunch is important. Friendship is more important.” Boston Vegan #Tweetup at JP Licks in Brigham Circle adjacent to Boston's Longwood Medical and Scientific Area (the LMA - the 'Ella Mae'), This is a monthly (specifically) VEGAN networking event for those who KNOW or who BELIEVE or who HOPE that vegan living is a bright, responsible, ethical, and rewarding way to live. If you're not on the same page with THAT idea, then go to the vegetarian meetup. Your 'dues' supports all three meetups. JP Licks in the LMA/Brigham Circle is easily accessible by the T. It is walking distance from the green line stop (GREEN Line) and on the #66 and #39 bus lines.
