What we're about

Do you love trying new vegetarian & vegan restaurants? Do you enjoy the company of fellow vegetarians & vegans? Are you occasionally frustrated that your meat-eating friends "don't get it," and do you wish to dine with others that have the same enthusiasm for vegetarian and vegan food that you do?

Welcome to our group. What I am especially proud of is all the wonderful members we have. We seem to attract some of the very nicest, most thoughtful people in New York. Given the focus of our group, I am not surprised.

New York has many excellent vegetarian and vegan restaurants, and new ones are opening all the time. Join us as we explore them all, and enjoy dining with some of the kindest, most gracious, most socially-conscious people in New York.

Plus, join us as we go out on the town to vegetarian and vegan friendly bars and lounges. And partake when we go to visit some outstanding music venues. Great ways to have delightful nights on the town in the company of a fun and friendly group of vegetarians and vegans.

We warmly welcome all vegetarians and vegans as well as those that are considering a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Our meetup group was profiled in a news story on CNN's Headline News channel. Check out the video (http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bestoftv/2012/04/05/exp-jvm-vegan-meetup.hln).

Veg Night Out At Arlo Soho Rooftop

Arlo Soho Rooftop

Welcome to our monthly Veg Night Out! This month we'll meet at Arlo Roof Top located on Hudson and Canal in Soho. It will be a perfect location for us to chill and enjoy the evening. Arlo Soho Roof Top: "The views of the Hudson River from our rooftop bar are a good enough reason enough to visit, though there’s also an excellent selection of craft beer, well-mixed cocktails, and in the warmer months, ... Featuring all new lounge furniture giving us an elevated 'urban oasis' vibe." TimeOut: "The rooftop bar is also especially beautiful and offers stunning views, indoor seating and outdoor bench-style seating" From 6:00pm-9:00pm Arlo Soho Rooftop Bar 231 Hudson Street, NYC (212)[masked] NYEaters: ".. with a relatively western location at 231 Hudson Street, just north of Canal Street, its view still sports a slice of the Hudson River and a swathe of Tribeca and Soho..." AM New York: "This bar atop the boutique Arlo SoHo hotel opens May 1 with views of the Hudson River, craft beer and cocktails..." With all the wonderful vegetarians and vegans who attend each of our events, every event we do is liked by our members, but our "Veg Night Out!" events are the most popular of all. People enjoy the fact they can mingle (speak with lots of different people), and they love the beautiful venues that we go to. Join us for a stellar evening of lively conversation and lovely surroundings with fellow vegetarians and vegans. For our new members: this is an incredibly friendly and welcoming group. We'll be hanging out by the main bar area, and you can get to know all our wonderful members. This event has no cover and no minimum. But please do buy a drink or two, or as many as you like. The venue requests that you dress appropriately: business, business casual or smart casual. Please bring your credit card as Arlo Soho Roof Top does not accept cash! Join us for a fun and relaxed spring evening socializing with fellow vegetarians and vegans. Closest trains stations are (1), (A), (E) to Canal, followed by (N), (Q), (R), (W), (4) and (6) to Canal.
