A couple of weeks ago, I attended a great meetup. I love meetup groups. They're a great way to meet people and learn something new about whatever it is your interested in. You can gain experience, a new bff, a business connection, conquer a fear, get educated on a topic, meet the love of your life, etc etc. This particular meetup, Atl Vegan Drinks, is a vegan group, that's open to vegans, vegetarians, transitioners, or the "just curious".
"ATL Vegan Drinks is a new monthly meetup in Atlanta. By bringing together a diverse group of people, we hope to expand and support the local vegan community. It's also a chance to have fun and make new friends."
The first meetup was held at Sauced restaurant. And did they have a great menu for all the participants.
I honestly was expecting side dishes but they obviously blew those thoughts out of the water. The restarant was contacted prior to the event to see if they would provide vegan dishes for the meetup. And boy, did they.

I got a little caught up and began eating this dish before I remembered to take a picture. Lol.

I really had a great time at the meetup. I was even more impressed when I saw that you can call a restaurant and ask (very nicely) if they can offer any vegan dishes for your visit there.
So if you live in the Atlanta area and you're a vegetarian, vegan, or just curious & open to it, click on the link here. This will take you to the Atl Vegan facebook page where you can sign up for the next meetup which will be held at Cafe Sunflower - Buckhead.
Are you a member of any meetup groups? I'd love to know which ones and why you joined?
In the meantime, wishing you an awesome weekend.
