I'm in South KC, near Grandview (about a couple blocks away from the Triangle). There's not a whole lot of vegan-friendly stuff around here, but there is some good stuff on the Plaza, Westport, downtown, and on the Kansas side (and I do a lot of cooking!).
We have potlucks and meetups every month, and it's great!
It's so refreshing to have a group of friends who share the same beliefs about animals and veg*ism... especially in a city that's known for barbecue and steak.
We have veg*ns from all over the place join us every month for our potlucks and meetups. We've even had vegan "celebrities" like Erik Marcus, Farmer Harold Brown, and JoAnn Farb chow down with us (JoAnn and her family are pretty much regulars at our potlucks now).
So, a good variety of people, and good vegan food! What more could a veg*n in Kansas City want?
Edit: Oh, one more thing that VegKC's organizer dude wanted me to add; We're having an all-you-can-eat vegan pizza buffet in January! You're welcome to join us!
And, yes, the pizza has yummy vegan cheese!
