This group is for vegans, vegetarians and those who are veg-curious. We enjoy a wide variety of activities, some involving food and some not. You don't have to be vegan to join this group, but at all events where food is involved, the expectation is that attendees will eat vegan fare. Some of the types of events we offer are: hiking, kayaking, tubing, camping, day trips, potlucks, picnics, dog-friendly events, restaurant meals, trivia nights, happy hours, board game nights, live theatre, concerts, movies, animal rights activism, other advocacy events, fundraisers for nonprofits and more.
Please note: the purpose of Meetup is to meet people and interact around common interests. For nearly all of our events, we will provide a specific time and place to meet, and will provide detailed info on how to find the group. Please don't RSVP as "going" to one one our events unless you actually plan to participate and interact with our group! If you want to show up at the venue but don't want to interact with our group, please don't RSVP as "going." It's your responsibility to follow the instructions provided in order to find the group and participate in the event. Once you find the group, please introduce yourself and let us know that you are a member of our group. Rarely, we may post an event that's so large and/or crowded that it would be difficult for us to gather as a group -- in those instances we will make it clear in the event description that we won't meet as a group. Please READ the event description so that all details are clear to you, and you know what is expected of you as a participant.
For all events, please remember to be courteous and update your RSVP if your plans change. Don't be a no-show! Habitual no-shows will be removed from the group.
Not every event will appeal to every member, and that's to be expected. If you have a complaint about an event, please contact the organizer directly. Remember that your organizer is a volunteer. If a particular event does not appeal to you for whatever reason, perhaps another event will.
Some events may have an attendance cap due to limitations of the venue, limited parking, organizer preference or other factors. Please do not show up for an event unless you actually have a spot and are not on the wait list. Our organizers have wide latitude in setting up their events. Please respect the organizer's decisions regarding location, time, attendance cap, activities, etc. and do not attempt to persuade them to change any event to make it more to your liking.
To facilitate getting to know one another, please use your real first name and post a real picture that shows your face as your profile picture for this group.
