Vegan Thanksgiving in Chicago??
When I first joined this board, I was in San Francisco - now I'm in Chicago.
It looks like the Illinois sub-section of the board is a bit dead - I hope to help liven it up a bit!
Is anyone else looking for an "adopted" vegan family with whom to share Thanksgiving?
Last year, in SF, I went ahead and ate with my immediate family, and had to watch them eat turkey, which broke my heart.
I'll probably be fortunate enough to get an invite to my Chicago aunt's get-together, but some of her friends aren't all that nice, and it's definitely all about (dead) turkey worship there.
So, since I won't be missed if I don't go to that one (unlike with my immediate family, who would be hurt if I didn't join them, if I was in the area), I was thinking of finding some like-minded people.
Can anyone refer me to a group that's doing Vegan Thanksgiving? I'm going to go to the Meetup website, but sometimes groups there aren't active, or they look like they're active, but no one shows up to the events.
