Vegans of the NC Triad Message Board › Where to Meet?

Where to Meet?

Post #: 1
Hello to everyone!

I'm really excited to see so many usernames on the group page. So far we have 3 people committed to the May 6th meet-up date. Do we have any questions or concerns about the meet-up? Is the date or time of day a challenge for anyone?

I'm more than willing to be flexible and work on rescheduling if that would make for a larger first time meeting. In fact, I think rescheduling might be a good idea -- objections or suggestions, anyone?

I'd really like to hear some feedback about location -- what are your thoughts? EarthFare's cafe was suggested by someone before the group got started and I think that sounds like a solid idea. Yay, nay, other?

A question was raised, earlier, as to how strict a vegan a person would need to be in order to attend. I discussed this a little with Dave and I'd really like for the group to be open. Vegetarians leaning toward veganism and even omnivores are welcome to attend -- just so long as a reasonable amount of consideration is extended to the fact that this is a vegan meeting and veganism is our focus.

I'm really excited about the upcoming meet-up and am looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
