Per this thread, anyone interested in meeting on Sunday, November 1? I've got suggestions for possible spots in South Florida (Palm Beach and Broward counties).

Any chance we could do Orlando area?? I have never been down south and its kinda far for us but would LOVE to meet some folks!

chryssiie718 08-31-2009 08:01 AM

Maybe there's a "half-way" point or something.... I am not well travelled.

Fromper 08-31-2009 08:20 AM

I don't really know any good veg restaurants or anything between Palm Beach and Orlando, though I know some on both ends.



Since it's a Sunday, I might consider making the 3 hour drive up there, if there's enough interest, and if my work schedule allows. I usually work normal 9-6 week day hours, but when there's big projects, I sometimes have to put in overtime at night and on weekends.

I actually would love to go down that way if only we could afford it. IF we had the cash, we could make it a weekend, but then the kids would miss Halloween.....

chryssiie718 08-31-2009 08:25 AM

The other Florida peeps need to join in! I know there are quite a few!

SuicideBlonde 08-31-2009 10:35 PM

I wanna! I just do not drive. I am in Tampa.

chryssiie718 09-01-2009 05:15 AM

Is anyone else in the Tampa area??? There must be!! Carpool anyone?? Let's try to do this!

I am in Clearwater which is a quick drive over one of the connecting bridges to get to Tampa.

chryssiie718 09-01-2009 07:02 AM

I hope other FL folks join in this discussion. It would be really cool to get together! I think there are others in the Tampa area and I think there are a few in Central FL also. We just have to figure out where to meet and how to get everyone there!

Fyvel 09-01-2009 07:25 AM

We're in Miami Beach, but.... we might be in the keys on Nov 1 to celebrate our first anniversary. If that falls through though, I am definitely up for something!

GhostUser 09-01-2009 09:21 AM

I'm in Gainesville, and would be interested in going if I could carpool with someone, or maybe we could have a Gville get-together.

Yippy!

seibella 09-03-2009 01:18 PM

I'm in Jax...anyone for north florida??! Gainesville isn't too far from me....neither is Orlando...

chryssiie718 09-03-2009 01:38 PM

We might be able to go to Gainsville but it is probably a little far for the South Florida folks. I think Orlando has some good places and is kinda centralized. I hope we can work this out!!

Fromper 09-03-2009 08:33 PM

Well, I'm probably out. My work re-arranged my schedule, so now I'll probably be booked for that weekend.

I very much wanted to meet you!

chryssiie718 09-06-2009 05:47 AM

That really sux Fromper!! Hate it when work interferes with life!!

SobeVegChick 09-06-2009 01:56 PM

Orlando could totally work!!!

chryssiie718 09-06-2009 03:17 PM

Orlando would definitely work for us. Any other votes for Orlando?

seibella 09-06-2009 03:25 PM

I could do Oralndo =)

According to previous posts, there are at least 2 other Tampa area people.

Any more??? Y'all could carpool!! I'm excited!!

buickboi96 09-11-2009 12:07 AM

Tampa Bay!!! Brooksville, to be exact! Although it's not the most veg*n friendly city, we are most centrally located as far as the Eastern/Western coast and for North/South. Very convenient to Tampa Bay, Orlando, & Gainesville! Please keep me posted, as I would love to join!

chryssiie718 09-11-2009 06:39 AM

Welcome to VB, buickboi96! I think Orlando is more "central" to the whole state, however. I really would like to see this "meetup" happen. If all you West coasters could get together and carpool to Orlando, that would ROCK!

SuicideBlonde 09-11-2009 11:10 AM

I am going to facebook this to see if my veg non vbers want to join.

Good idea! The more the merrier!

GhostUser 09-13-2009 07:46 AM

There's a great vegan restaurant in Orlando called Ethos Vegan Kitchen. (http://www.ethosvegankitchen.com/).



I'm originally from Orlando, but I currently live in Jax. I visit my family in Orlando all the time though. (I eat at Ethos every time I go down!!!)

chryssiie718 09-13-2009 07:54 AM

There is a new place called "The Loving Hut" which is billed as "vegan fast food." It is cheaper than Ethos though I have never been there. Ethos is the only vegan place we have EVER been!! It is good!

SobeVegChick 09-13-2009 05:22 PM

Okay, so if we're really gonna do this we gotta devise a plan.
