Something to ponder...
The Vegan Chicago Meetup Group has an event the first Saturday of every month, and quite a few VB
'ers are members. In the summer, we try to have outdoor events...there have been a few at Foster Beach, and it's been really nice. People bring frisbees and hula hoops, and sometimes four square and/or kickball is/are played. Food-wise, the events have been both catered and potluck-style.
The proposed picnic date, June 8th, is the day after the meetup. There may be a greater chance of meeting more VB
'ers if everyone just decides to attend the June VCM (unless some of them elect to spend the night). The potential exists for Michael, Veggie Friendly, tricia soup, Hummus!, Wolfie, denise1021, and kpickell (and maybe even ~Wonder) to be there. dandelion and I will be at the meetup for sure.
The June VCM location has not yet been determined, but there's a good chance it will be outside. I understand wanting a VB
-only event, but all of those mentioned above, as well as IamJen and Indian Summer can attest to the wonderfulness of the non-VB
'ers at these events.
Just a thought...
Y'all can tell me to mind my own soy wax, and I won't be offended in the slightest.
