• AVVA Vegan Potluck Dinner for November
    To all our members in north Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, Pflugerville, even Round Rock... please join us for our monthly vegan potluck for November! This month we'll be at Dan's house in north Austin, off Lamplight Village Ave., between MoPac and Metric, just north of Parmer. The first Saturday is our "healthy" potluck, this event is more of an "anything goes" (but still vegan) potluck. But just a polite reminder, PLEASE bring your own eating dish, utensil(s) and beverage. We have a lot of new people coming to our potlucks these days, so if you've been wondering when a good one to come would be, this would be it! Even if you're coming from the south, it'll be worth the drive. Lots of great food, and a bunch you've not tried before! Our potlucks are relaxed and informal, we welcome everyone, especially new vegetarians and vegans, and the "veg-curious". And it's free for anyone to attend. All attendees must bring a VEGAN dish that can serve 8. Couples can choose to bring two dishes or an extra-large dish. Please try not to bring just a snack like chips or nuts. You also should bring a serving utensil, as well as your own plate, utensils, and beverage. Bring your recipe or a list of ingredients to help those with food sensitivities.

    To all our members in south Austin, Manchaca, Buda, etc... please join us for our monthly vegan potluck for October! Since we were off last week, we'll do this one at Candace's house in south Austin, off Brodie Lane just south of William Cannon. This is our ANYTHING GOES potluck, as long as it's VEGAN, so you don't have to worry about gluten-free or no oil or anything like that. We have a lot of new people coming to our potlucks these days, so if you've been wondering when a good one to come would be, this would be it! Even if you're coming from further north, it'll be worth the drive. Lots of great food, and a bunch you've not tried before! Our potlucks are relaxed and informal, we welcome everyone, especially new vegetarians and vegans, and the "veg-curious". And it's free for anyone to attend.

  • Vegan 3-Day Weekend Camping Retreat to Kerrville
    Instead of having our First Saturday Healthy potluck in October, Candace and Karen are planning a 3-day weekend camping retreat for Kerrville-Schreiner Park. Leave the craziness of ACL weekend and come for good food, fellowship and relaxation! There are mini-cabins for those who don't have camping equipment and plenty of activities like hike-and-bike trails and canoeing on the river. Candace and Karen will also lead gentle yoga for bone health, dancing, yoga nidra and more. You'll bring your own food for breakfasts and the Saturday night potluck. Bring a cooler as there are no refrigerators. Karen and Candace will provide Sunday and Monday lunches and Sunday night dinner. It'll be all-vegan, no-oil and whole foods, so please plan accordingly for the Saturday night potluck. There are restroom facilities with flush toilets and hot showers. Bring your own linens for the beds. PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED. Sign up at Karen's website, where you'll pay a $50 deposit to count towards the minimum number of attendees to put this event on. Once the full count has been for attendees, the final price will be provided, which should be under $180 (and will include a $30 refundable deposit for leaving your cabin clean). The prices are PER PERSON and there is a $20 cancelation fee. To register yourself and whoever is coming with you and pay your deposit(s), go to http://www.myfoodfitnessandfun.com/store/p12/Kerrville_Columbus_Day_Weekend_Retreat_Deposit.html - learn more about the mini-cabins at https://www.kerrvilletx.gov/1054/Mini-Cabins
