Ian's Pizza is hosting our group for a vegan pizza party at their State Street location (where the children's museum used to be). Note: There is a duplicate event (http://www.meetup.com/VegMadison/events/147468862/) on Monday, November 11.
Our completely-vegan menu will be served family style and includes the following:
Mixed greens with choice of vegan dressings.
Vegan Mac N' Cheese
Featuring Daiya (http://us.daiyafoods.com/) mozzarella and cheddar.
Vegan Fall Fest (no cheese)
Marinara sauce, kale, roasted garlic cloves, portabello mushrooms, and roasted red pepper.
Mediterranean Veggie (no cheese)
Marinara Sauce, roma tomato, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, basil.
A bed of fresh baby spinach with an assortment of fresh veggies and a little Daiya mozzarella.
Water is included. (Juice, soda, beer, and wine will be available for an extra charge.)
The $10.00 fee includes the tax, tip, and everything mentioned above (except the noted beverages). That breaks down to about $7.00 for the meal, plus tax, tip, and a little to cover the meetup.com and PayPal fees.
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.
The $10.00 fee includes a little extra to cover PayPal's fees (http://paypalfeecalculator.paymentprocessing.cc/) (59 cents) as well as Meetup.com's $144 annual cost (http://www.meetup.com/help/organize/#org_cost).
If you cancel on or before Saturday, November 9th 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 are welcome, but pay full price. However, young children who will only nibble off of your plate can attend at no charge. And those who won't eat much (honor system) pay half price. 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.
