I have my plane tickets there, but not back! It was expensive to begin with and I was waiting for it to drop in price, but the deal just keeps getting crappier! Guess I'll have to stay at VVC forever and ever.

OMG! How did I not hear about this sooner. I'm going to be in Portland for vacation while this is happening. I'm so super sad faced now. Can I come lurk outside the door and say hello to everyone?



you totally should! janessa has a big write up coming on off-site events soon.

I actually just popped in here to post one: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=229511447084092 Thursday night Meet & Greet

I'm getting in town LAAAAAATE Thursday night, and planning on getting a waffle sandwich for breakfast, but other than that I have no plans. I would love to head to Native Bowl with Panda, Footface, and Vijita.

I'm heading out Monday afternoon, and meeting my sister-in-law in San Francisco for two nights. Then, together we're heading down to her new home in San Diego, where I'll be for another 4 nights.

This trip will make up for me heading home, where I'll be spending my birthday alone because my husband will be in England eating all the Cheezly.

Is there anyway to get any tickets still? Our traveling schedule has change and I'll be in PDX all August and it would be sad to miss the hole thing.....


email vidaveganconference@gmail.com to get on the wait list for conference tickets - it moves crazy fast. there are a bunch of off-site events, too, that are open to the public, like the galarama on saturday night...

Really? You strike me as the kind of person who's on his game.

I look at the calendar every day and am getting more and more excited! I'm happy to meet everyone, get my learn on, eat really good food and know it is vegan, and I get to be FREE OF THE KIDS.

I really, really, REALLY wish I could be there, but I have my PhD orientation that week; have fun, take lots of photos, and hopefully I can make it to the next one!

Indeed! If you're so inclined, maybe you could join me and we could do some loathin around until lunch.

I must eat my way through Portland. I also need to figure out a way to work some doughnuts and a friend hand pie in there. Maybe Homegrown Smoker, too. So much food to eat and only a fewstomachs days to do it!

My flight doesn't leave until 3:15 Monday, so I should be able to grab my self something for the plane ride then. Because I need lunch for a 90 minute flight, right?

Also, so excited to finally meet you, birthday twin!

Yes! To the waffles!

I have to check in and see about what time I have to set up my table, so I may have to miss lunch Friday. I don't yet know where anything is.

I don't have much to do, so if you could use extra hands, I can help you set up and grab you some lunch and stuff.

See, here's my deal. I still haven't gotten straight in my mind where the conference is, where the dorm is, where this or that event is. I'm a mess.
