This group is for friendly people interested in the vegan lifestyle who want to have fun, share awesome tasty food and socialize with like-minded people in a relaxed comfortable atmosphere. There are many reasons to choose this lifestyle from compassion and love for animals, animal rights, health, environmentalism to kindness and peace. You do not have to be vegan to be part of this group. Vegetarians and veg curious people are welcome to join with no pressure, but you must respect our lifestyle choice. Remember this is a vegan group please do not order or eat meat, fish, seafood, cheese, dairy, eggs, honey or other items containing animal products at this groups events or you may be removed from the group.

Please post a picture of yourself and at least your first name in your profile . This helps us identify you at an event and welcome you into the group.

I am aiming for a fun, happy, enjoyable and respectful group of like-minded people.

If you RSVP for an event and don't show up especially if it is a meetup at a restaurant where the organizer has reserved a seat for you and you didn't update your RSVP to indicate you were no longer going you may be deleted from the group.  If you plan to attend a meetup you must RSVP yes for a event and see your name in the attending area of that event. You can not just show up at a restaurant event.  We have seats reserved for the people signed up to attend and need a accurate count. Restaurants plan with reserved seating, employees and amount of vegan food needed.  I don't want members leaving a bad impression of our group where we are not welcome back because of a few members rude behavior.

Meetup automatically removes members from any meetup group after 6 months if you have not visited a  groups page while you are signed in.  If this happens you are welcome to join the group again.

I always look forward to meeting more veggie friends. Don't worry about attending an event alone as this is a very welcoming group.
