This is a group that has dinners in restaurants. While there is a number of vegan and raw groups, our focus is a little different. We are looking to have events at restaurants that will provide vegan and raw options at our events. It may not always be possible to have a raw option but that is one of our goals. We also host potlucks where all are welcome.
Another one of our goals is to have events at restaurants thay may not be only vegetarian/vegan or raw. We would like to show the traditional types of restaurants that there is a market for vegan and/or raw food and that it should be easy to incorporate into their regular menu.
We are an inclusive group so that means whether you are 100% raw vegan or a 0% vegetarian and you eat meat, you are still invited and welcome to our events.
We strive to have the events be fun, affordable and delicious.
We will have some rules to this group as well. They will be living rules and will chamge as we see fit to change them. Please realize that these rules apply to everyone, not just the person sitting next to you! ;-)
We will be doing an event a month (hopefully). If we get ambitious we may do more. We will be looking for some volunteer help the day of the event too. It would be great if you could assist.
We will primarily have events in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. If you have places that you would like to see an event held by our group, please give us the owner's name, contact information, and address. We are not opposed to going to the suburbs, but we want to go where we can get a good turnout as well since we are volunteers and want to maximize our efforts.
Some events will be purely social events, other events may have a speaker and/or demonstration. We will try to keep it varied so it is interesting.
Please read the rules we have posted on the message board.
Thanks for joining us and hope you enjoy our group!
