An Extra Special Second Sunday Roast Dinner @ Pogo Cafe!!!

  • Aug 11, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

On 13th November 2011, we had one of our regular Sunday roasts at Pogo. Apparently only six people turned up. But amongst those that did, were two young vegans who had never met before...

And later this August, they'll be getting married!!!

To mark this occasion, and celebrate the roles that both London Vegan Meetup and Pogo had in bringing Jagtar and Vicki together, we'll be having an extra-special Sunday roast on 11 August 2013 to incorporate a bit of a pre-wedding celebration.


This a regular event, taking place on the second Sunday of every month. Pogo's roast dinner varies from month to month, but a typical example might be cashew nut roast, rosemary roast potatoes, freshly steamed vegetables, and herby onion gravy for about £7. Pogo's famous milkshakes, juices, cakes, and knickerbocker glories (and possibly their burgers) are usually also available.

"Pogo Café is an autonomous, non-hierarchical, 100% vegan space run completely by volunteers. We aim to encourage veganism and animal liberation by providing delicious, affordable food and useful information to the local community and beyond."

The small print...

After we had 12 "no-shows" in March '12, I'm now asking for a deposit to secure your place. You can pay this either by PayPal or in cash.

  • If you're paying with PayPal, you can RSVP as normal and pay online.
  • If you're paying in cash, you'll need to pay me at an earlier event - I'm nearly always at London Vegan Drinks and London Vegan Potluck, for example. (I recommend putting your deposit in an unsealed envelope with your name on it.)

You'll get this deposit back if you either:

  • turn-up at the event within an hour of the advertised start time
  • cancel at least 48 hours before the start time.

Otherwise, I'll donate your deposit to Pogo.

Refunds will be via the same method as payment. PayPal refunds should be free of any commission charges, so you should get all your money back.

      Hi Lesley. I sent you an email on the 2nd, but guess that was just as you were going away. Anyway, I've received a donation from Paul (rather than a deposit) but can treat it as a deposit instead if you like.

    • Lesley D.

      Thanks, it was intended to be the deposit, although given your meetup costs, will be happy to give a bit to that as well as the £5. See you later.
