! ~ Welcome to The Veganista Social Club ~ ! We are a community of women that gathers and connects over (plant-based) food, fun, and a wide variety of interesting events. Whether you are looking to meet (& socialize with!) other *vegan women, join us in delicious vegan potlucks, explore San Diego (& beyond!) with new friends, or are new in town and looking to connect with like-minded women, this community is likely for you. :)
[* You don’t need to be vegan to join ~ just interested in plant-based nutrition and animal welfare.] :)
[** Although, for all Veganista events involving food, such as our many wonderful potlucks, please bring only vegan dishes.]
Our members host a wide variety of events, such as: the above-mentioned yummy potlucks (often themed), cooking classes, book club (we take turns selecting what we read & discuss), 'Geeks & Games Nights' (aka: board game nights), picnics in the park, hiking, beach days, bonfires, yoga in the park, live theatre, movie outings, concerts, gallery & museum receptions, animal sanctuary visits, organic garden tours, special vegan events around town, and so much more!
All members are encouraged to post and host events, whether they are in-home, or out & about.
We welcome your ideas!
The Veganista Social Club looks forward to meeting you at an upcoming event!
As our goal is to create & maintain a close-knit community, we request our members be courteous with RSVPs. Some of our gatherings are capped, so a 'no show' or last minute (24 hours or less) cancellation means another member is missing out on the opportunity to attend a gathering. If a member is a 'no show,' or repeatedly cancels at the last minute (for a capped or uncapped gathering), she will be asked to leave the group, as it is unfair to other members. Again, this is all in the spirit of community-building.
Member dues / fees:
Meetup.com charges the Veganista Social Club $198/year, so our group has a $10 annual membership fee to cover this as well as other incurred expenses. As a new member, you will receive a free 30 day grace period (or be able to come to an event gratis - we know not everyone can attend an event the first month) before the $10 annual membership fee is due (so you can check out the group, see how wonderful everyone is, and decide to officially join then!). :)
* When your dues are - well - due, please reach out to our treasurer / co-organizer, Lucia L., to arrange payment via cash or Venmo. Thank you! *
Please complete your member introduction ~ we look forward to learning about you! ~ and upload a photo of yourself, so we can find ~ and greet ~ you at events. :) *
We welcome women of all cultures, races, religions, and sexual orientation(s).
* Please message us if you have any questions; we look forward to meeting you!
