What we're about

Boulder Vegan Life welcomes everyone, regardless of dietary preference, to learn about a more healthy, compassionate, and eco friendly, plant-based/vegan lifestyle. Only food and drinks brought to or order at gatherings by members and their guests, must be plant-based/vegan. Thank you!

We welcome your participation in submitting Vegan Friendly Offerings in this and the surrounding communities.

We encourage your input and suggestions to help grow and nurture a wonderful, welcoming, and kind community.

This group is supported and sponsored by Animal Action Network, a nonprofit educational organization, and Vegan Life Colorado, a nonprofit, community building, educational organization.

NOTE: Some of our repeating restaurant posts are listed as "go when you can" so members can know about the vegan offerings and so no one feels like they have to go at a certain time. Feel free to use the comment section below the event you plan to attend to let other members know you are going and would like company. Include the time you plan to be there. It won't always work out, but sometimes it does. Also use the comment section to let folks know what you thought of the restaurant, whether you go with other members or not. Enjoy!

Hoping to see you all soon!

Jill's Vegan Lunch Buffet - HOSTED by Jill's, Boulder (PLEASE READ ALL DETAILS)

This weekly 100% vegan buffet offering, happens most every Friday (check our calendar for possible changes)! NOTE: This event has been so popular, that they have 2 seating times. Here is the message from Jill's Staff. Please read: "We are offering two seating times for lunch in the Dining Room instead of just making reservations at any time. The first seating will be at 11:30 AM and the second will be 1:30 PM. Guests who make an 11:30 reservation will be asked to be finished with lunch before 1:00 in order for the 1:00 PM reservation to be seated at the table. We made this change in order to make more availability for our Vegan friends to join us for our lunch buffet. The price is $16.95, including the complementary glass of wine. If you or any of the Vegan Lifers have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (720)[masked] or email us at [masked] ." *From Vegan Life organizers: This is a notice of the weekly offering so members know about it and will be able to go when they can. Sometimes we do this as a gathering, but not every week. When we plan a gathering, or I know in advance that I'm going, I will make the reservation and post the time in the comments below. If you are planning to go when there isn't a gathering or if the gathering time doesn't work for you, and you would like to invite other members to join you, you can put a note in the comments below. When it isn't an official gathering, or when you want to sit on your own, please remember that you will need to make your own reservations by calling (720)[masked], OR you can try to be seated in the "first come first serve (FCFS)" seating to the right. When the weather is nice, the front patio has tables for 2, and is also available FCFS without a reservation. *I set this up as a MeetUp, because the notes on the calendar don't show up on our home page. This way new members and visitors to our group can also see them and will know about them. * I am listed as host so that I'll receive email notices, but I can't go every week. If I'm able to go and anyone wants to join me, I will have to make a reservation for the group by the WEDNESDAY afternoon before, so we'll be sure to have a spot. Please make a note of this and let me know in advance if you want to sit together. Thanks! [masked] Attention: Ann Remember, you are always welcome to invite other members to join you by using the comment section below and then make your own reservation.
