Details

This event is now full. If you would like to join the waiting list send me an mail (http://www.meetup.com/VegMadison/suggestion/).

Please include your phone number so I can contact you quickly if there's a cancellation. Signing up for the waiting list does not commit you to going if space becomes available. There is no fee involved in joining the waiting list.

If you are interested in this event it's important to add your name to the waiting list even if you think it's unlikely you'll be contacted to go:
1) There could be last-minute cancellations and the people ahead of you on the list might not be able to go -- or I might not be able to get ahold of them.
2) It gives me a better indication of the interest level, which can help in planning future events.

Ha Long Bay is a vegan-friendly restaurant that serves delicious Thai & Vietnamese food.

Note: To accommodate more people, there is a duplicate dinner (http://www.meetup.com/VegMadison/events/120918972/) on Tuesday, June 11.

Our completely vegan dinner will be served family style.

RSVP/Payment Info:
Pre-payment is required to RSVP (see exception below). Meetup.com automates this process when you pay via PayPal. If you want to pay by check, contact me (http://www.meetup.com/VegMadison/message/?recipientId=2053494) and I will give you my mailing address. I will manually update your RSVP as soon as I receive your request, but since our events fill up quickly, out of fairness to other group members I will remove the RSVP if the check is not received within four business days.
Special honor system exception: If you have been in the group for a while and have a history of attending and paying for events without any problems you can contact me (http://www.meetup.com/VegMadison/message/?recipientId=2053494) about paying me at the event. This accommodation is provided as a convenience -- you are still responsible for paying even if you do not attend
Important Note: I will manually update the RSVPs of people who pay by check or use the honor system, but it's possible the event will fill up before I check my email. If that happens I will add you to the waiting list.
Fee Disclosure:
The $15.00 fee includes a little extra to cover PayPal's fees (http://paypalfeecalculator.paymentprocessing.cc) (74 cents) as well as Meetup.com's $144 annual cost (http://www.meetup.com/help/organize/#org_cost).
Refund Policy:
If you cancel on or before Saturday, June 1st you will get a full refund. There are no refunds for cancellations after the deadline or if you do not show up to the event. If something comes up at the last minute you are welcome to find someone else to attend instead of you. The reason refunds are not given after the deadline is that I agree to pay for everyone who has paid me at that point.
What about kids?
Kids 8 and under pay $7.50. Young children who will only nibble off of your plate can attend at no charge. Please note in the comment section of your RSVP if kids will be joining you.
This is a vegetarian group. Why is the dinner vegan?
This group has members who are vegetarian, vegan, and just interested. Everyone is welcome. I think it's important for our events to have a menu that not only has something for everyone, but where everyone can eat everything.
