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.

Indian Restaurant Vegan Meetup

Milan

Hi Everyone, The change to the Milan Restaurant from the Royal Indian Restaurant was requested by so many, that I am permanently changing this to the Milan Restaurant, which will continue to land on the third Thursday of each month. 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! -Doug

Ming-Meetup!

Ming Dynasty Restaurant

This Ming-Meetup is a regular event on the first WEDNESDAY of each month (it used be on Tuesdays, but the restaurant is no longer open on Tuesdays). The Ming Dynasty restaurant was chosen as a meetup Restaurant Dinner spot since it is one of the most veg-friendly restaurants in the Charlottesville area, and because we want to support it to keep it around (and the food is so good too!). This will obviously not be a potluck meetup, and for obvious reasons the Ming-meetups are not free. These Ming-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. I hope to see many of you there for another fun and delicious Wednesday night dinner!
