I was just reading another thread about not having friends and marshmallow fights in Philly and it made me realize that I don't have vegan friends in Los Angeles! My husband recently went vegan and my friends are happy to eat vegan, so that helps, but I would love to make some friends who have the same general interests.

Have there ever been any L.A. PPK meetups? Any in the works? If not, should we plan one?

Also, is there anywhere in L.A. where I can buy Dandies??!!! I know I can get them online if I have to, but I would rather not pay shipping if I can get them locally.

I'm a total lurker on the boards, so no one knows me, but I would join a meet-up. It sounds fun.

I don't think I've seen Dandies, but the Whole Foods in Northridge has Sweet & Sara marshmallows (and a few other products of theirs). According to their website they carry them at a bunch of LA area WFs. I haven't tried them so I don't know if they're any good.

I'm very new, so no one knows me either :)

I finally ordered some Sweet & Saras online. I went to the 4 Whole Foods near me that were listed on the website and none of them carried them :/

I would be interested at some point! Right now I'm without car, though, so getting around can be kinda awkward, unless everyone wants to meet in Santa Monica (easy bus ride).

I currently live in Oceanside, but I'm from LA and go up frequently because my family is still there. If the meetup is on a weekend when I can come up, I'd be game. And my Dad lives in Santa Monica, so that's actually pretty convenient for me.

Santa Monica isn't really further from me than any other location in LA, so that works.

I will be at the vegan chili cook off at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank this Sunday. If anyone else is going I would be happy to share a table and hang out. I'm not sure what time I'm getting there, maybe around 1:00, but I'm flexible.

Oh, me! None of my friends are vegan and I have a car, so as much as I hate driving to Santa Monica, I totally would, if it meant hanging with some new vegan people!

Vegan chili cook off sounds awesome! The one time I tried to go to Tony's Darts Away it was so packed we couldn't even get up to the bar. I haven't been back since.

Where would be a good place in Santa Monica? RFD? There is also a Native Foods in SM now too.

I've never been to Tony's DA, but I couldn't resist the lure of a chili cook off.

Personally, I prefer Native Foods, but RFD is okay too.

I would love to make some new non-virtual vegan friends! I missed the chili cook-off at Tony's, but heard it was great fun. I'm in Hollywood, and would be happy to drive or bus anywhere in the area to meet some PPKers!

Maybe we can make it happen in 2013? I've only been to NFs once, and clearly that's not okay. :)

I am officially back in LA now, which makes LA meet-ups easier. :D

I'll go anywhere accessible by bus or metro. I think I can bus to Santa Monica and get to downtown from there? I'm open to suggestions from people who know the city a bit better, and I could do any weekend this month, and probably most of them in February.

So today I found out that there is going to be a launch party for Betty Goes Vegan at Mohawk Bend on Monday. I've never been to Mohawk Bend, the event looks fun and the menu looks yum, so I made reservations for 6:30. If anyone else from the PPK is there around the same time I would love to meet some fellow vegans. I only know 2, and one is my mom. :) Here is the facebook event page with the info: https://www.facebook.com/events/338232926280750/

Hey FabulouslyFierce, I know it has been forever, but are you still looking for Dandies? They have them at Follow Your Heart.
