Veg Month with Grubwithus! »
Grubwithus kicks off their Veg Month next week! All kinds of fancy vegans will be hosting veggie meals around the country. I’ve already got my ticket to dine with Leanne of Vaute Couture here in NYC. There’s only a few tickets left, so if you want to hang with me (spoiler alert: you totally do), get your ticket now!
Victoria Moran is hosting a dinner in NYC on Jan. 16th and Jesse Miner will kick the whole thing off at Source in SF on Jan. 14th. OMG will Jenny B. be there? If you are lucky!
There are also a handful of events in LA, DC, and Chicago. See their page for more details.
Come pig out with Grubwithus and Vegansaurus during VegWeek! »
Dear Bay Area residents, do you want to chow down on fab veg Thai food in the best neighborhood in S.F. with the coolest person you can imagine? Then you will want to partake in Grubwithus’s VegWeek, particularly the meal on Tuesday, Jan. 17, at Thai Idea. [Ed.: One of my favorite new restaurants! Maybe I’ll come too and be all, “BOO, MOTHERFUCKERS!” and then eat all your spring rolls. You like?? - Laura]
Grubwithus is basically a social network for oinkers like me to meet up with each other; one of their taglines is “Never eat alone.” Totally feeling like they’re not going to stalk me, hilarious!
Here’s how it works: You make a profile on the site and sign up to attend a meal. You pay money (I know, I know) based on how fast you sign up, so the first person to sign up gets the best price. Last time I checked, there were eight seats left on Tuesday, so do it to it!
Next week is the network’s national vegan/vegetarian week, so here’s the lineup for SF (check Grubwithus for your city!):
- Monday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m. at La Mediterranee for Veggie Grubbers
- Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 7 p.m. at Thai Idea, hosted by Sarah M. Smart of Vegansaurus (THIS IS ME, YOU GUYS, SO SIGN UP)
- Thursday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m. at Source, hosted by Alex Eaves of Stay Vocal
- Sunday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m. at Greens, hosted by Bryant Terry, author of Vegan Soul Kitchen
You’ll be able to find me at Thai Idea on Tuesday,
swigging from a 40 of Mickey’s delicately holding a glass of wine (Thai Idea is BYOB, people) and hoovering all of the Firecracker Balls within reach. If you’re lucky, I might even make forced, expletive-laden conversation with you! Or give you a big wet smooch! Depending on how drunk I get! Bet you can’t wait to find out!
