Veg*n Gathering at Domino Park and Tacocina in Williamsburg
**Arrive any time between 5:30pm and 8:30pm and stay as long as you want or leave when you need to. Arriving at 7:00pm or 8:00pm (or later if you need to) is perfectly great. Some of us will be hanging out till 9:30pm or later. We will meet outside by the tables. Look for our large group.** Domino Park is a new 5-acre public park located along the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The park features a beach volleyball court, a dog run, a bocce court, green spaces, a playground, and a raised scenic walkway, and “Built on the site of the former Domino Sugar Refinery, Domino park is a tribute to the diversity and resiliency of generations of Domino workers, their families and their neighborhood.” The designers of Domino Park, the same firm behind the High Line in Chelsea, incorporated the factory’s old rusted structures, syrup tanks and gantry cranes into the modern features of the park. The park is a great spot to have nice conversations, get to know new and old friends in the group, and take in the sunset over the NYC skyline. Tacocina is a Mexican window-service eatery with an outdoor patio overlooking the river. Tacocina offers tacos, snacks, Mexican beer, canned wine, and cocktails in a laid-back setting. We will be meeting in the outdoor seating area of Tacocina. For more information, check out their website: https://www.dominopark.com/ With all the wonderful vegetarians and vegans who attend each of our events, every event we do is liked by our members, but our "drinking" events (including both non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks, whichever you choose) are especially popular. 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. There is a full selection of non-alcoholic beverages available if you prefer not to drink alcohol. The Park can be reached through the following methods of transportation: Subway: M, J, Z to Marcy Avenue L to Bedford Avenue Ferry: NYC Ferry’s East River route to the South Williamsburg or North Williamsburg stop Join us for a relaxed and fun night of socializing with fellow vegetarians and vegans.

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).
