Happily Ever After: The First Ever CS Europe Vegetarian and Vegan Singles Mingles Weekend! Berlin, Germany
Posted July 9th, 2011 - 1:39 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
hi all...yes, you read that subject line correctly!

inspired by the CSers that started the Vegan Singles Finding Vegan Love group
{http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=38789}
.
.
.
and inspired by wanting to pursue my own veghead mate – and wanting to help my other single veghead friends do the same
.
.
.
I am organizing:

Happily Ever After: The First Ever CS Europe Vegetarians and Vegans Singles Mingles Weekend

For: Single Vegetarians and Vegans living in Europe
(or any other single vegheads from afar, too!)

Purpose: Find your veghead mate, or fling, or obsession, or playmate…or at least some new single friends to hang with; chill out with like-minded people for 3 days in Europe’s best veg city!

Where: Berlin, Germany

When: September 30th – 2 October
(but maybe plan on spending a few extra days to get better acquainted, or take side trips to Ostsee or Poland ;) )

Concept: Activities and meals based around all of the wunderbar vegetarian and vegan and green options available in Berlin – with city and nature-based outings and options for kids and/or dogs. (exotic pets like pigs and boa constrictors can also be accommodated for).

So, don’t be shy, here’s your chance to overtly come together and
link up
link in
hook up
sink in
synchronise
harmonise and
establish a CS Europe Single Vegheads community!

A google blogspot will soon be posted with information and registration…of course, with CS, accommodations should be free (!) and costs are up to you otherwise! Average prices for meals at different restaurants and cafes will be provided beforehand so you can budget if you want. ;)

Ideas? Comments? Want to help organize?

Here’s to happily ever afters,
Kap

hi KATYREKK!

That sounds awesome! And the website is looking good already!

As to places where to post about the event, I was thinking of
- vegan.de which is the largest forum-based community for vegans in Germany. I'd suggest you post to the categories "Termine" (dates; http://vegan.de/foren/list.php?155) and "Kontaktbörse" (networking & dating; http://vegan.de/foren/list.php?75). Yeah, you have to register to post, but at least everyone can read posts.
- http://www.berlin-vegan.de/ which is the biggest vegan-related website in Berlin (as far as I know). They focus on animal rights activities but might still be willing to add your event to their website.
- http://www.veggiecommunity.org/en is a large, mostly german-language, dating website for veg(etari)ans.

Feel free to contact me if you think I can be of any help in organizing the event!

Best,
Anja

Hi Kat,
just posted about this event on polish veggie Website.
maybe this will be good idea that everybody will carry a badge with his CS nick (or name )on 1st meeting, haha ?

Anyway, have a amazing&fruitful event with hundreds of veg people attending!
maybe some Polish vegheads will visit as well.

Are there any of these in America? This event sounds awesome.

@ Anja, danks! i haven't gotten that many positive replies yet ;)

it would be suppppper hilfreich if you could post in the places you mentioned...i also thought about vegan berlin - their facebook group is active, too (though i'm not really on facebook)...

would you be willing to post in those 3 places?...thanks for offering to help!

@ Brittany, come on over! :)

...and if not, i hope this inspired you to hold one in your neck of the woods....

@ everyone else, if you're interested - there's now an official CS event on the calendar...search by city or the dates. i think the more people who register, the more it will be taken seriously...

cheers,
Kap

Let there be peace

If someone feel like joining me, well just say so and I'll be pleased. Ich möchte auch mein Deutsch verbessern. Je parle aussi français.
Ok tschüss là!

PS See no comments about " how lovely it was in Berlin...",

why ?

How many persons attended, etc...

Veg singles meeting didn`t turn out disaster,
with woman only from this particular country :-)
am i wrong ?


greetings from Mediterranean shores, so much life here...

howdy all!

thanks for all the comments - sorry for the delay in response...was "busy". hahaha. no. deadlines, no internet, yadda yadda.

event was really great - sweet mix of people.

in terms of love, not sure what/how much came out like that - but lots of new friends and good connections...

i'm thinking we should host a veggie & vegan event in winter/spring sometime - and open it to all -- then just have 1 or 2 events special for singles...since sooo many people wrote wanting to come...

anyhus....catch you all in berlin sometime?

we have a new veggie group now berlin - inclusive of vegetarians!

WOW! A great idea AND it was in Berlin?!? I wish I had been there... Maybe next time we can have a similar meet-up out here on the Left Coast of N America!

Posted November 11th, 2011 - 9:38 am by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
heya Travis!

sounds like you live in a corner paradise of the states (which only VT could rival!)

why not organize a CS single veggies event out there?!

just post around all the major cities in the NW...i'm sure folks would jump - i got an incredible number of emails from all over the world when we posted for the event here...

best!

Kap!

Cascadia is indeed quite possibly as good as it gets though in many ways Vermont is my favorite state. One quality that Vermont is severely lacking though is the wonderful degree of vegan-friendliness so common out this way.

I am interested in helping to organize one or more such events out here, though I would prefer to assist rather than take the lead organizing role... That said, I would love to get your advice, hear about your experiences & see your suggestions based on the weekend your organized!
