November 1st is World Vegan Day, when vegans all around the world get together and do cool stuff. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Vegan_Day



I thought it would be fun for VeggieBoarders the world around to arrange a host of small, "mini meetups", all to be held on that day (or on the 31st of October if Sunday's a pain). There are frequent posts of "I wish I knew another vegetarian/vegan" or "I'd love to go to a meetup".....well, here's your chance! Even if it's just you and one other person, go for it! Since it's World Vegan Day, I'd like to suggest that the food is vegan, but that vegheads of all flavors are invited to participate.



So...get cracking. Once you have an idea for an event in your neck of the woods, either post in this thread or send me a PM and I'll add it to a list in this post.



Woot!

California (south)



Florida



Missouri

Ohio

Texas (Houston)

UK:

Maybe the okies and Misery people could get together. And of course Kansas. Even CO. and not sure how many or if any Arkansas peeps are here?





It's really about money and time though.

The Boston Vegetarian Food Festival is October 31 and November 1. I plan to attend one of those days. Otherwise, I don't know if there are any members in NH that are on the boards that I would have any chance of crossing paths with. If I am mistaken, please speak up! (=

Great idea!



I'm up for a London one for sure. Perhaps in Joi, since that's easy to get to from the tube station (assuming I'm not the one giving directions...)

Yep, lost would be me stepping out side the house. Dame now I need to know where to find the tube station. I'm sure I'll get there.



Whooo! I just check the calendar and my parents are still away on holiday, so I can make it.

I'd love to, but I live sort of in the middle of nowhere. The best place for me would be Vancouver if any fellow British Columbians wanted to do that (:

I'm likely to be extremely hungover from a Halloween party the night before but if anybody wants to come over and drink leftover warm beer and watch Sanford and Son reruns, you're welcome to join me.

I would love to meet people, but only if the other North Carolinians wanted to come to Chapel Hill. Chapel Hill Halloweens are legendary, so I cannot miss it.

Man, I miss those! It was always so much fun being on Franklin Street for Halloween! Good times!



I'm not sure what other NC people would be willing to do. Aren't there a few in Asheville? I love Asheville! Of course, a part of me will always be in Chapel Hill. Heck, I'm game either way as long as I can make my schedule work.

Anyone in southern Florida want to meet? Since it's a Sunday, I might consider driving up to central Florida, if my work schedule allows.

I might be able to come to the London meet-up. I don't think I have ever tried Joi before. I have been to Sagar before which is on the same street I think.

Everybody needs to go to their local forum and start making plans. Just post it: "Meetup - November 1st." Then post a link in this thread.



The posts in this thread are way too random and mixed up to make a plan from...

I've been considering coordinating a veg*an potluck for a few months now. I may aswell aim for this date. If there are any Vancouver Island, BC veg*ans, I'm gonna try to organize something in Nanaimo for around this time!

My friend just moved there (ie. she just arrived this morning) and recently became vegetarian. I can talk to her and see if she would be interested.

Hey, I'm in the MO/KS area. I know some Facebookers but not VBers in the local area who would probably go if we organized a meet-up.
