I just received this email from Vegan Outreach.

Friends,



I wanted to let you know about an upcoming Vegan Outreach gathering in the LA Area. On March 22 at 4 pm, Anne, Ellen, and I will be at Vegetarian Heaven. Although it might be a bit of a drive, we hope that you can come out and meet us. For part of the time, I'll be leading a discussion on the topic, "Is being vegetarian important?," so feel free to bring a friend!



Vegetarian Heaven is the café of India Sweets and Spices ( http://www.indiasweetsandspices.org/ ) at 3126 Los Feliz Blvd Los Angeles CA 90039. For the day, Vegetarian Heaven will be serving only vegan food.



In case you want more information about Vegan Outreach, please see:

And this interview might be of interest:

(Sorry if this is a duplicate message)



Hope to see you then!



Thanks!



-Matt Ball, Vegan Outreach



March 22nd is a Saturday, btw.



Who's interested?

If I go, I'll wear a disguise* since you don't like me, that way I won't spoil your fun.









In this case, that means I won't have a wig on. Ironic, huh?

danakscully64 04-15-2008 05:23 PM

I'm sad... I just now read this

Amy SF 04-15-2008 05:25 PM

I totally forgot about it, so I didn't go.



If you live in California, you really should check out the California forum every once in a while.

danakscully64 04-15-2008 05:28 PM

I know, I've been bad. I'm totally ready for a meetup! Now it's extra cool because my bf is now a vegetarian! Last time we were discussing a So Cal meetup, he wasn't. I think everyone should meet up in San Diego for my birthday weekend (May 24-26). My bf is going to be out of town for his cousins wedding, so I have no one to go with me. Nickle00 is going to be in town from the 16th -30th. More people, yay! We should go to Vegan Zone!

Oh man, that looks SOO good!!

danakscully64 04-25-2008 04:36 PM

I know, isn't that awesome? The food is VERY reasonably priced too! When I went in, my bf and I were the only ones there (it was at about 2pm). They close for an hour in the afternoon to give the servers/cook a break. The lady who worked there was very nice too. And since their food is made to order, you can make substitutes.



I've never had coconut milk-based soups before. Very different, but tasty. Even took it home to Riverside with me

Amy SF 05-13-2008 11:34 AM

Well?

danakscully64 05-13-2008 08:00 PM

You're only flexible on the weekend, right?

Amy SF 05-13-2008 09:45 PM

Unfortunately, yes.

danakscully64 05-13-2008 10:12 PM

We'll have to work something out soon. If my bf wasn't going to be in Michigan memorial day weekend, I would say that weekend would be perfect. We had planned on staying in San Diego that weekend... until his cousin scheduled her wedding for the 25th. We were bummed that we had to cancel our plans.



I'll get back to you... I have to discuss the info with my bf.

Amy SF 07-22-2008 10:49 AM

*cough* Everybody is having meetups except us Californians. Even those danged Oklahomans are planning their SECOND meetup. What's wrong with us? Why can't we get organized?



ETA: I gotta tell you, if you don't take advantage of this, you're gonna miss out. I'm lots of fun to hang out with. If we meet in Santa Monica, I know where all the veg restaurants are. It's summer, you can't tell me you don't wanna hit the beach!

danakscully64 07-22-2008 01:36 PM

LOL! I promise, very very soon! My last class in community college ends next week. YAY!



Santa Monica is just far... I've driven out to LA twice this month already and will be going again tomorrow AND thursday. Next month!



Besides Amy and I, who's in?

Amy SF 08-28-2008 05:06 PM

So Sunday, August 31st is a GO.



Where: Oasis Cafe in Riverside

When: Good question. What's the answer?

Why: To hang out, eat vegan food, commiserate, laugh, cry, compliment each other's hairdos. Oh, and to meet Violet the Korat Cat.

How: Driving, flying, walking, skateboarding, however we can get there.

Who: Amy SF, danakscully64 (got that right!), who else?



Wheeee!

danakscully64 08-28-2008 11:27 PM

Wanna meet at my house first and we'll take one car? We can meet between 11 and noon so we're not eating lunch TOO late YOU CAN ALL MEET MY AWESOME CRITTERS!



Also, Missanthropy15 (Kerri) and HOPEFULLY still *AHIMSA* and ProudVegan!

<<<I'm feeling left out AGAIN, Amy!

danakscully64 08-28-2008 11:59 PM

She loves you, I promise I'm sending out my addy first thing in the morning, hope your inbox is cleared by then Or you'll just have to guess which house is mine

Amy SF 08-29-2008 10:10 AM

If we helicopter in, we'll certainly know which house is hers. It's the one with the HUGE painting of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson on the roof.

I am going to the convention on the 14th which is on Sunday. Any of youse want to come? We can meet and go together. Its cheaper if tickets are purchased online.

Amy SF 09-02-2008 02:01 PM

Weather was lovely in Riverside on Sunday. Warm, but not hot, because there was a breeze a-blowin'. And by the time I left Riverside at 7 p.m., it had cooled down a bit and was nice and comfy.

danakscully64 09-02-2008 05:44 PM

I can't go because I can't ask for anymore days off for a while, I work on Sundays. We'll meet up soon though, maybe in LA.

danakscully64 09-13-2008 09:17 AM

Anyone ready for a DISNEYLAND meetup?

*AHIMSA* 09-13-2008 09:20 AM

It's too expensive, otherwise, I'd go!

danakscully64 09-13-2008 09:33 AM

Could you get a pass? It's only $134... which I know is a lot if you don't have it. I charged my pass



I MIGHT be able to get some people in, my Dad's cousin works for Disneyland.
