A regular long afternoon and evening of board/card games! Bring your favourite ones or just your inner geek -- we usually have games for everyone 🤓 Arrive whenever you like, stay as long as you want: new games will be starting as people come in, with often one or two that can be joined at any given time. Look out for the hosts (Alex, Antonio, Nick, Rachel, Steve) if you'd like to be introduced to other attendees. Here's a list of games that are frequently available at our events: https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/geekstraveganza You can read a description of each game, and if anything tickles your fancy don't hesitate to post a message on the event to connect with someone who owns a copy. Also, you can preview the rules of some of our most loved games here: http://bit.ly/BoardgameRules -- but this is not at all required, we're always happy to teach/explain games to new players. Accessibility: this venue is fully accessible and has an accessible toilet. Yay!
Like a pot luck, but with cake. This is the twenty first meeting of a vegan baking group, designed for members to show off their baking skills and share their creations. How it works: each meeting will have a theme. RSVP and bring along something you've baked to fit the theme. Share cake, discuss cake, have a drink. Simple. This month needs no explanation- bring something chocolatey. The rules: 1) Every attendee must bring something to share (cake, bread, pie, tart, etc.). It must be baked, and it should be large enough to share (e.g. a dozen cupcakes, a cake large enough to cut into 12 slices). No exceptions- it's a baking group, you kind of have to bake. 2) Everything must be vegan- no meat, fish, dairy, eggs, honey or any animal-derived products. If you're not sure about an ingredient, there are plenty of people who can help, so just ask. 3) Sharing is very much encouraged, so feel free to bring a box for leftovers. 4) Please bring an ingredient list for your bake. Accessibility: access is via a small step, and our usual spot up another step, although we can easily relocate. Toilets are downstairs.
Join the CULT! Well, everyone seems to think veganism is a cult anyway! 😉 But joking aside, we have excellent news. From March 2015, every Tuesday is a vegan day (http://www.tibits.ch/en/food-drink/vegan.html) at Tibits (http://www.tibits.ch/en/restaurants.html#tibits-london-heddon-street)! And having been thinking that we needed a relaxed, midweek social event in central London, this seemed to be the perfect opportunity. We have booked the entire basement on the last Tuesday of every month. So come on down, meet other vegans, and enjoy vegan food and drink. (You're welcome to arrive any time between our start and end times.) If you haven't been before, Tibits is a great "pay-by-weight" buffet-style restaurant just off Regent Street. And on their vegan days, everything (or at least almost everything) in the buffet is vegan. So don't forget to save room for their sticky toffee pudding! HAPPY HOUR Arrive early to take advantage of Tibits' Happy Hour (Mon-Thurs 4-7 pm). • All cocktails £5 • Pints £3.50 • Bottles of house wine £12.50 • Bottles of Prosecco £18 ACCESSIBILITY Tibits is a wheelchair-accessible venue with a lift to the basement (where we'll be) and a wheelchair-accessible toilet. However, the lift is a little hidden, so please ask staff. (A member of staff will usually greet customers as they enter.) FREE MEMBERSHIP. FREE ATTENDANCE. We're keen to ensure that cost is never a barrier to attendance - either for vegans on a low-income, or for non-vegans who don't want to pay to learn more about veganism. Therefore, we never charge for membership or attendance. But that doesn't mean that our group or our events don't cost us anything to run! So if you'd like to (and are able to) support our events and future projects, you can find out how to do so here: https://londonveganmeetup.co.uk/donations
