There's a super cute, very vegan friendly cafe in town (Bij Britta) whose owners are delightfully enthusiastic about vegan desserts. They also don't charge more for soy, and seemed surprised that I even suggested it ("it's not much more than regular milk", which, duh, but was so awesome to hear an owner say). I've had 3 of their vegan desserts so far -- cheezecake, berry choco, choco-choco and not yet the mocha cake. Barbara, the pastry chef, seems excited about all of it and would probably die of happiness if 12 vegans from around the country showed up to try her cakes. (Bonus: there is a super cute, super sweet cafe dog.)
So, my proposal would be something like that followed by a picnic. Hopefully the weather will be good and we can do it outside. Both veg_eric and bun have been to my place; it's, um, not exactly big enough for 12+ vegans to hang out (maybe, max, 8). So I'm not sure what our backup plan could be (um, I have an office downtown with a giant lounge we could easily take over on a weekend, but yeah, office potluck). If that sounds interesting to anybody else, we can think about dates. I'm still less than reliable, but Bhadra is here! He seems pretty reliable.
