We have a great FB group for NJ Veg families here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/584227551589659/

I'd love to get a few more fun meet-ups going so we can hang out with more vegan kiddos - maybe at Rutgers Garden (their azaleas will be in bloom soon!) or some of the parks near here?

We have CupcakeFest in Rutherford (about 25mins by train from Penn Station) coming up on June 22 as well, so I'd love to meet friends and eat vegan cupcakes while we hang out and listen to music and watch the toddler run.... https://www.facebook.com/events/4033285 ... 1/?fref=ts

All suggestions welcome! As summer approaches its so nice to have kidfriendly ideas!

You can always count us in. I would love to visit the Rutgers Garden.

I still want to go to For the Animals! D has really been wanting to visit a farm and doesn't remember our visit to the Woodstock Sanctuary. Maybe we can have a meet-up there/picnic/whatever...I'm thinking sometime in June as May is bringing us many visitors.

The Summer Shindig is on 5/25, and we had fun last year with Ariann and Sashi and another friend. It is going to be even more fun now that all our littles are mobile. I definitely would be up for going again and sharing a picnic while the babies meet some nice goats and cows and chickens.

Leela kisses everything, so this is going to be fun. She also has the loudest "Moo" so I think she'd love hanging out with Herbie.

damn that looks and sounds like soo much fun but we can't do that weekend as we'll be inundated with visitors. Also how have I never realized that my boss has his country house in that very town - weird!

I would have loved to go to the shindig but it's the week before my due date so we'll probably be hanging out around here. Maybe sometime over the summer?

That looks fun but we'll be camping that weekend. I'd love to do a meetup some other time though!

We're going to be in NJ for a party on June 30 and were thinking of stopping at Rutherford Pancake House before hand for brunch. It will be the first time driving with both girls in the car so we'll probably need a stop once we get out of the city. That and we probably won't have much to eat at the party :-) If anyone wants to meet up with us let me know!

Yay! I'm guessing it will be some time around 11 or 11:30. I need to figure out how far we need to drive after stopping.

I wonder if they'd take a reservation. They are crazy busy on Sunday mornings.

I don't think they take reservations. You might be able to call ahead the same day to get your name on a waiting list, if there is one.

And I completely forgot to come back to this thread! We are still planning on stopping at RPH on Sunday. Tofulish and Ariann, I saw that you were just there today so I totally get if you don't want to go again or already made other plans. We're going to aim to get there around 11:00 (pending traffic and newborn needs).

We tried to go to RHP last Sunday and there was a line out the door.... we ended up getting bagels and going to the playground instead. Happy to try again though! We can put our names on the list an hour before we all get there. When were you thinking?

Yikes. Maybe it's not a good idea. Do you know if they allow you to call and put your name on the list?

Now that I'm thinking about it, we'd try to get there at 11:30, not 11.
