Ok, I'm starting a thread since it's been a long time since I saw all of y'alls beautiful faces.

Let's pick a date and an activity!

Something in November or December would be awesome, since that is reasonably soon. The only weekend I'm not available is November 23-24. Otherwise, I could be yours! (Yes. All of yours.)

There was talk of Belgium mayo + giving lepelaar's house some love elsewhere. I can't overnight at her place because of serious cat allergies, but I don't mind a crazy one day trip oooor staying elsewhere (especially if I had company). There is, also, still serious stuff to be explored to the west, including a re-visit to Den Haag for fondue. And cornelie thinks an awesome vegan shop "might" be opening in A'dam before the end of the year.

So, discuss! Who wants to do what where? Is there possibly a yarn shop for pickledtreats nearby? Etc., etc.

Not that you guys wouldn't be welcome at my place, but there is very little to do in my town (in general and veganwise). If we do meetup in Belgium, I would suggest hitting the vegan-awesomeness of Ghent, home to vegan fast food, two vegan buffets, and Avalon, along with several well-stocked health-food stores.

I do have a guest room that could sleep two people (snugly) and depending on my furniture situation at that point in time, I might have a pull out couch that could accommodate 1-2 more people.

That said, I was thinking of coming up to NL sometime in November, and I have been both fantasizing about that fondue from de Hagedis, and about vegan Chinese from either that place in DH or Rotterdam. (And I still want to go to the Vegetarian Snackbar at some point!) And I could probably be persuaded to bring jars of Belgian magic Veganaise with me.

It would be great to see you all!

Ooh, I like the Ghent idea! We were there this summer, but unfortunately most of the restaurants were closed at the time. Anywhere else is fine though too. We should probably be free most weekends next month, so count us in!

I'm up for anything that involves vegan stuff and you guys :-) Mr. Cornelie will probably like to tag along. Our scedule for the next month is still flexible, so I'm pretty sure we can fit some PPK in there.

Yes, if you come after the Gentse Feesten everything is pretty much closed.

I'm down for anything, really! However, I'm very curious about Ghent. I know that's a long way for some people, though. I can do any weekend except the same one lutin said because I have a conference to go to in Amsterdam that weekend.

What about the second weekend in November?

fisticuffs, when are you still free?

The facebook thread lepelaar started suggested an early December weekend for Ghent. I think that worked for (mr.) bun and (mr.) muffinpants. No one else said anything specific about dates, just variations of "I wannna eat that mayo, I mean, see you!". Lepelaar and I were going to try to find a weekend to do something in the West together in November (and then, obvs., invite y'all along) but now she has serious shoulder stuff to pay attention to. So maybe Ghent in December is a better thing to try to organize? Fisticuffs, would that be possible for you? It'd be pretty sad if we were in your neck of the woods and you couldn't come...

December is great for us (November is quickly filling up with people's very important birthdays that I forgot about...)

UPDATE: There is now a facebook event for Dec. 7th shenanigans in Gent. Pretty sure I invited all of you -- apologies if I missed someone. Guests can invite friends, so just ask one of us for an invite if you want to see the great vegenaise graphic I made.

Yes! It will be on December 7. We are using a Facebook event page to discuss details. Do you have Facebook? If so, send one of us a pm with your fb details (if you're not already friends with some of the PPK'ers here) and we'll invite you. Let us know if you're not on fb and we'll post the details here.

Yes, you were there! We had lunch at Avalon and dinner at Komkommertijd! You bought shoes at Vedge!
