Vegan Convergence tomorrow!

Date: Sunday, May 23, 2010
Time: 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Location: Col. Summers Park (Picnic Area)
Hey Portland Vegan!

Ever wonder if there are other super cool vegans and vegan potlucks in PDX that you don't know about? Even if you adore your current vegan friends, have you questioned if you're missing out on The Others? Or maybe you're crying to yourself over your BBQ Platter at B&B or wiping sadness away with orange fingers from the fake Cheetos that you got at Food Fight! since you don't know any other PDX vegans. In any event, its time for all that to change.

Portland has so many little vegan sub-cultures (quadrant-specific vegans, PPK vegans, Meetup vegans, NW Veg'ers, suburb vegans, space patrol vegans, blogging vegans, tattoo vegans, biking vegans, foodshop/food cart vegans, straightedge vegans). Its hard to keep up, let alone branch out and meet new peeps. But that's all over now. Like Ronald Reagan told Mikhail Gorbachev back in '87, its time to "tear down this wall."

The VEGAN CONVERGENCE is upon us.

Show up, eat some food, talk to some folks. It's simple. You might even meet your new vegan best friend! Worst case scenario, you leave with a full belly of vegan goodies. No time for drama. No time for cliques. Just bring a "Favorite" (is that the theme?) vegan dish (along with cutlery, plates, tongs etc.) and get ready for the best afternoon of your life. Like staring into the sun, this could be epic.

(Vegan-friendly friends invited, too!)
