What we're about

This Group was created to join vegans or folks interested in veganism, together in a meetup group, who became vegan or are interested in veganism in an effort to live cruelty-free. This meetup group is for potlucks and social gatherings in the Charlottesville/Central Virginia area. A potluck every month or two is a great no-pressure way for vegans and people interested in veganism to meet one and other in a relaxed setting where we don't always have to question the ingredients of what is being eaten. Let’s share delicious meals, our favorite recipes and make new friends! Non-Vegans are welcome, but please bring only vegan food to the potlucks, and please order only vegan dishes at the restaurant vegan meetups.

Rotating Restaurant Vegan Meetup - Dairy Market

Dairy Market Charlottesville

Hi Everyone,

This restaurant meetup will rotate to different vegan friendly restaurants each month, which will continue to land on the third TUESDAY of each month. We'll put the location of the selected restaurant about a week prior to each scheduled meetup.

*** For the Dairy Market, which has a number of different restaurants within, there is parking to the left of the building that you go online to make your payment. Everyone will meet at a large table in the main area and get food from whatever restaurant they want, and then bring it over to the table.

For those who haven't attended a meetup of ours held at a restaurant, just ask for a separate check so that you can pay only for what you ordered. If you do attend, please order only vegan food out of respect for the group.

Hope to see y'all there!

Afghan Kabob Meetup!

Afghan Kabob Cville

The Afghan Kabob Meetup is a regular event on the first TUESDAY of each month.

This will obviously not be a potluck meetup, and for obvious reasons restaurant meetups are not free. These meetups are, however, a lot of fun in a relaxed casual atmosphere, and great for those who prefer a meetup where they don't have to whip-up something for everyone to eat. We hope to see many of you there for another fun and delicious Wednesday night dinner!

Firefly Restaurant Vegan Eatup

FIREFLY Restaurant & Game Room

Gwen and Kathleen are co-hosting meetups at Firefly Restaurant as a regular event on the second TUESDAY of each month. It starts at 7:00pm, and there is Trivia hour starting at 8:00pm.

If parking is full, if you enter Firefly from Meade Ave and immediately turn right, there's additional parking in the back; You can also park across the street at the tombstone place. They have a lot of vegan options, and are friendly to vegans.

For those who haven't attended a meetup of ours held at a restaurant, just ask for a separate check so that you can pay only for what you ordered. If you do attend, please order only vegan food out of respect for the group.

Hope to see you there!
