I didn’t make it to Veg Speed Dating at Saturn Cafe as I seem resistant to anything not resembling dying alone and being eaten by my cat, surrounded by take-out and delivery boxes in my mess of an apartment. It looks like it was a fun time, as showcased by Eco-gal, who made this snazzy little video of the shenanigans that went down.
My friend Mike (we’re friends, right? Even if we’ve only commented on each others blogs?) attended and does not only have a starring role in the vid (check out the 2:01 mark) he also had very positive (read:not terrifying) things to say:
I thought the event was amazing. There was enough VegENERGY (like that? new word) in the room to turn Emeril vegan! In all seriousness, there were a ton of really wonderful people at the event, and Karen Brighten did a fabulous job setting it up.
Even though there was a wide range of ages, it was fun to have platonic conversations with fellow compassionate humans. Often times, I feel super alone and jaded that I don’t have more vegan friends. It was so nice to have a conversation that didn’t start with, “So, where do you get your protein?” If there is another event in the future, then I will totally be there! Unless, a certain someone snags me off the market!
Ladies?! Who needs speed dating?! I’ll be your personal vegan matchmaker! I’ve watched enough Millionaire Matchmaker to know what I’m doing. Just kidding, Karine, I’m totally at your next event.
