Hello again,

As I sadly have not heard back from anyone regarding my last post, I am back to give it another try. :)

I will be in Vancouver & SW BC for the last week of June & the first week of July. While I am up, I'd love to meet up with other vegans & vegan friendly folks. What better way than to share food together? Dining-out, cooking together, picnics, potlucks, FNB, whatever - let's hang out!

If you know of any fun food events already happening, please let me know & either way, let's plan a meet-up or 23!

Who's in? :)

Erin!

Thanks for the reply. And yes, too long. Is all well for you & yours? A potluck picnic sounds great! Does Sunday 24 June sound doable for you & all? I will likely start posting in the main Vancouver forum soon - but I am also deviously trying to stir up chat here too. ;-p

Good stuff Garry! With a bit of luck I'll finally make it up to Whistler during this trip. I'd love your tips!

Erin, That seems like a nice park. I am up for where ever works best for folks provided I can get there by bus/train.

Thoughts on time of day or other details?

Hello discussion thread,

There is a raw vegan potluck at Eternal Abundance on Commercial Drive every last Sunday of the month. I've never been to the pot luck but the regular cafe is nice.

The last Sunday of June happens to also be June 24; potluck picnic day. Just sayin'

Best,
Jack

I've been a couple times. Was good. Good food and good conversation. I think the fee is just to help with the clean-up and use of the venue.

I recommend attending some gatherings through Meetup.com

Such as this one:

Potlucks, dineouts, picnics, etc.

Great idea & group! Sadly, it doesn't look like they have anything scheduled for the 2 weeks that I'm in the area...

By the way, while I'm flying solo on this trip, I'll likely be returning later this year with one or more of my vegans kids (14, 11 & 9) & we'd love to visit with you & your kids!

Thanks for the replies - it's really nice to see the group coming alive! :D

Garry, I'd love to make it to that vegan potluck in Whistler but an unsure if the date will work for me... How/when will you be getting home after visiting Vancouver Garry? I'll probably be looking for a ride on late Monday or early Tuesday. I should start putting in some couch requests for up there too.

Erin,
Did you get a chance to see about reserving that space or possible alternatives?

All,
Anyone else coming? Any idea what time might be best? Early evening sounds nice to me but I am very flexible. :)
