I'm interested, but my weekends through August are pretty much filled already.



FYI: The Vegan Chicago Meetup Group is gathering Saturday, August 2nd at Flat Top Grill: http://vegan.meetup.com/11/calendar/8285083/



I won't be attending, as I'll be out of town that weekend, but those who are interested and available could partake in that event and then perhaps plan some additional VB-members-only activities afterward.

I'd be happy to attend a VB event in Chicago! That would be swell. I am attending the Vegan Chicago meet-up on the 2nd of August, but it would be swell to meet some VB members.



Maybe if enough people are interested we could hold a meet-up before the summer is over.

I think it'd be fun but some of my weekends are full too. In August I'm free the 2nd, 16th, and 30th (assuming it'd be on a Saturday).

Michael, Did you ever decide if you'd be setting up a VB table at VegFest in Naperville?

September sounds good to me! Perhaps the second or third Saturday in September in the early afternoon?

Any Sat. in Sept. should work for me, I think. I'd already thought about maybe coming up for the vegan meetup on the 6th.

Any Saturday in September except the 13th is fine for me; I'm going to a Sox game that day. ^_^

After seeing the turnout at the OK meetup we need to make this work!



Plus I haven't added anyone to my "VB'ers you've met" list in forever.

carnelian seems to be the heart of any meetup, maybe she can pick a date.



I just double-checked my calendar and I'm currently free all Saturday's in September.

Maybe we can do this labor day weekend? Is anyone going out of town?

The first or second Saturday (Sept. 2nd or 9th) would be best for me. HB's birthday is in September and we'll be busy the 3rd and 4th Saturday of the month.

I'm not available Labor Day weekend, and the 13th is iffy.



Would September 6th work for anyone? That's the day of the Vegan Chicago Meetup...we could begin our gathering there and then do other stuff afterward.



I'm also free September 20th.

I still hope to make the meetup but I'm not sure. The 27th looks good. The 20th turned out to be our shelter's annual dog walk but I can miss that if I have to.



I can't come the 13th. I know I said any Sat. was fine, but I lied. Actually my friend just this morning invited me to a cookout at her house on the 13th. She's had a rough year so I couldn't tell her I might be in Chicago.

I guess this would be in the Chicago area? I think this would be cool. So far any Sat in Sept looks ok for me. I think I could make it.

I am available on September 20th and the afternoon/evening of the 27th (I'm scheduled to teach a bead class on the 27th, but it could potentially be cancelled if enrollment is low or non-existent. If that's the case, I could be free the entire day. Unfortunately, I won't know for certain until the day before).

I've been waiting patiently for someone to pick a date.



I'm up for the 27th. I could probably come the 20th too, but they really need help at the shelter that day so I am torn. :/



I am 98% sure I am coming to the Oct. Vegan Chicago meetup too. Maybe that would work for people if none of the Saturdays in Sept. work out for everyone/most everyone? If people couldn't/didn't want to come to the "official" Vegan meetup, maybe we could so something afterwards.

I could hold out until the first weekend in October. We could make a day of it.
