I'd love to, but that kind of traveling takes money! I'm planning to do a tour of Canada one day, so we'll see!

I visited Chicago in  the winter of 1974/75 but never saw Aristede.

Oh, it's occurred to me that I haven't responded to the topic yet, but I can now since some connections have been revealed to me.

 

Let's see, I've met:

 

carnelian

sonicearth

IAmJen (I can't remember if Indian Summer came with her or not, but he probably did)

 

Michael was supposed to have attended the impromptu get-together a few years ago, but couldn't make it. 

 

Ah, that was "back in the day" when I first joined VB. How the times have changed...

 

There may be more people on VB that I've met in real life (since I'm a member of Vegan Chicago), but the connection hasn't been made apparent to me.

I've never met anyone. One of these days, I need to attend some veg events in Chicago. Been living here a year, and joined the meetup groups to get messages about them, but the timing never seems to work out for me. If I do go, maybe I'll run into some VBers.

I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but check out Vegan Chicago (you might already receive the updates). It hosts events on different days: the dining (restaurant) meetups are usually held on the first Saturday of every month, but Vegan on Tap :beer: is held on different nights (I see Thursday and Saturdays most often), and book discussions are held on Sunday afternoons once a month. There are also advocacy and leafleting events if so desired. You don't have to be a vegan to join (I'm not), but it's nice. It's a really low-stress, relaxed environment. Next month there's a vegan potluck being held if that's your thing. There are also some other veg meetup groups if those suit your fancy. I'd love to meet the Fromper!

Ok, just joined that meetup group. Oddly, I already joined 7 other veg meetups in the Chicago area, but somehow missed that one. They all have occasional things at different times and days, but I've got other stuff going on, or sometimes I'm not paying that much attention, so I'll miss one that I could have attended. I'm not sure why I'm a member of 16 meetups, when I haven't attended a single meeting of any of them since moving here last year. I need to go out and meet some people or something.

So it looks like Vegan Chicago is doing something this coming Saturday less than 2 blocks from where I used to live when I lived here in Chicago for a short time back in 1996. But again, I can't make it - already have other plans that night. I'll get to one of them eventually.

Scheduling can be rough. I often have many conflicting events and sometimes I just don't feel like going anywhere. It depends on my schedule and my overall mood. If I've had a really busy week, I'm less likely to attend a meetup. I hate the feeling when I'm busy everyday of a week; at least one day to do nothing is preferable. Try to come out the meetups as you can! You get to meet some nice people and eat pretty good food. Glad you joined Vegan Chicago!

I am not too sure if many people remember me... I have not been very active in the past year ish or so.

 

I have only met one VB member, whom is no longer on the site - KrisMTL. I am not sure if anyone remembers him either, but that is my rather short list of people. :p
