What we're about

This group connects your passion for animals, people and the planet with opportunities to become an "everyday activist" in all that you do. We will meet to offer support and camaraderie and learn how to achieve optimal health and wellness through plant-based whole foods, ideally with the intention of inspiring others to join our community. Our get togethers may include discussions of inspirational and educational books and documentaries, vegan potlucks and recipe swaps, health and wellness lectures, cooking workshops, film screenings, garden tours, outdoor activities and hikes, meditation and yoga techniques, and vegan dining out. If you're not yet vegan but moving along the plant-based path, this group will assist you in your journey. All events are strictly vegan, which means no animal products (meat, eggs, dairy, honey, fish, etc.) will be served or eaten out of respect for the animals and the ethical beliefs of members. Please also adhere to a policy of No Solicitation of personal business or other matters from which you may benefit personally. This is an informational and social group intended to build community. It is not for business networking, sales opportunities, or a dating service. Any form of harassment will not be tolerated. Events are for members who are respectful of each other, and anyone who violates the rules will be permanently removed.

A magical concoction of the mischievous, tender, whimsical, and debauched real-life adventures of Alan Cumming, told in his own words and pictures. Described by the New York Times as “a bawdy countercultural sprite” and named one of the most fun people in show business by Time magazine, Alan Cumming is a genuine quadruple threat—an internationally acclaimed, award-winning star of stage, television, and film, as well as a New York Times best-selling author whose real-life vivacity, wit, and charm shine through every page of his third book, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams. In these forty-five picture essays, Cumming recounts his real-life adventures (and often, misadventures), illustrated by his own equally entertaining photographs. From an awkward bonding session with Elizabeth Taylor to poignant stories about his family and friends to some harsh words of wisdom imparted by Oprah that make up the title of this collection, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams is as eclectic, enchanting, and alive as its author.
