How did you hear about this group?

Earthsave e-newsletter.

What's your favourite vegetarian restaurant in Greater Vancouver?

Heirloom; also like Po Kong and The Foundation.

What's your favourite Greater Vancouver non-veg restaurant that has veg options?

Nuba, also Whole Foods.

WHICH describes how you eat: omnivore (meat, fish, dairy, eggs, produce etc.) vegetarian (no meat/fish), vegan (no meat, fish, dairy, eggs), pescaterian (fish but no meat), flexitarian (usually veg, but not always), or raw foodist?

Vegetarian, vegan when possible (difficult when traveling!)

Are you also a member of Earthsave Canada (, the charity that promotes the plant based diet?

No but plan to re-join.


Have been vegetarian for over 30 years. I also try to eat vegan as much as possible. The meet ups are a great way to meet new people and learn more information. Had a vegetarian household – even with the dogs- but cat carnivore, changed things.

What Crystal G. is saying about this Meetup Group

While we like trying new places with a variety of veg foods in these meetups, it is consistently frustrating that we show up on time/a bit early, and people trickle in the door quite late, causing the event to start late EVERY TIME. I have not been to an event which started less than 1/2 hour late. It is inconsiderate, bordering on rude, to show up always late. Veg Meetup has a rule that people may be charged $5 for showing up more than 20 min late. I would recommend that the events start ON TIME, meaning people are seated by 7 and food starts at 7:10. If people want to roll in at 7:30 and they miss a fave dish -- too bad, their problem. If people know in advance they can't make it on time, they can either contact the organizer to save them something, or choose not to disrupt an event in progress. I suspect that there are others, too, who prefer to start and end "on time".
