so, i have been thinking of starting up a providence vegan meetup group. there is a RI veg group, but it seems sort of lame and it doesn't look like they get together more than once a year... considering you have to pay to have a meetup group, that hardly seems worth it.

would anyone in the area be interested in coming to things? going out to dinner, having potlucks and stuff? i guess the worst that could happen is that no one else joins and michael and i go out to dinner by ourselves and instead of having a brunch potluck we wind up eating a pile of pancakes in our pjs...

i'm not even sure how many ppkers are actually IN providence. would anyone in MA be interested in joining, too?

Oh good, I'm glad you included this, because I was going to barge in here anyway. Kevin and I love Providence, and though our schedules might make it tough to make it to a lot of the meet-ups, we would be psyched to come. (Especially if any of them are at Garden Grille... It is Kevin's favorite place.)

Also we're slow at Boston meet-ups, but you are SO welcome to join whenever we have them!

I would def. go to a Providence meet up! I'm in the New Bedford area so Providence is closer for me, not by a whole bunch but Boston sorta stresses me out with parking and all (I have to work on that issue).

I'd be up for it, assuming my schedule cooperates and I don't end up moving away!

you're welcome. I've actually never met another vegan in RI, so this group is exciting to me!

I didn't realize that you had to get up and talk about yourself at vegan drinks...
I just like the Indian food at Rasoi. Glad I missed it, cuz I would have been caught off guard.

As far as RI Veg Meetups go: I did manage to go to one meetup, which was a RAW cooking class, but most of the people who attended were not even vegetarian (just super-vegetarian "friendly") The raw cooking class was awesome, though, and 99.99999% of the recipes were actually vegan (witht he exception of the small bit of raw honey she used in one smoothie

I joined! I didn't realize at the Vegan drinks you had to get and and talk either, I missed the last Boston one and I'm sort of glad now I would have been caught of guard too.

I responded in the other thread, but now I've had a chance to talk to my partner, and it looks good for us make it on October 2! (We love the Garden Grille, and have been needing an excuse to get down there again!)
