Oxford Vegan drinks 18th Tuesday

E-mail sent by Rich Sleight, Wednesday, 12th March 2014 @ 10:53am

Hi All

Oxford vegan drinks - 18th March

http://www.meetup.com/Oxford-Vegetarian-and-Vegan-Eat-Up-Meetup/events/170843132/

There is a new event, Oxford Vegan drinks on Tuesday March 18th at 7.30pm. Meetng at the Three Goats Heads pub in the centre of town. There is no food organised, but we thought it would be good just to go for a drink with no table bookings. If popular maybe we could visit a different place each month.

For vegan drinks info check out http://www.vegansociety.com/lifestyle/food/drinks/ and http://www.barnivore.com/
 

Vegan dinner and quiz

Our monthly Quiz Team is the second Sunday of every month.

We have a regular Oxford Vegans team at the Gardeners Arms pub quiz. Turn up at 7.30pm to eat food, and 8.30pm for the quiz, or anytime actually just to say hi and have a drink! The Quiz Master is always on form with a special theme each week. We regularly have 2 teams for this quiz now. All newcomers always welcome. It is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, all for fun and no skills in quizzes are required either (otherwise I would not be going)!

The Gardeners Arms is a veggie and vegan pub in Jericho, and it even has vegan puddings!
Here is a link to the google map to find the pub http://g.co/maps/99btm

Someone will have an Oxford Vegans sign on a table. If you cannot find us then please ask the bar staff and they will point us out. 

Sign up on the meetup group below (this is shared with the Vegetarians and Vegans group but this is a vegan meetup), comment on facebook, or simply turn-up.

Come for the a drink only, or just a meal, or just the quiz.

Interested in sharing vegan info in Oxford or setting up a meeting?

At the moment if you look on the meetup group we have a regular quiz every month, and a Games night every month at Thirsty Meeples. If you would like to get involved to share vegan information within Oxford, have any ideas such as films to show, or information stalls, foodie outings etc please do get in touch or come to an event and talk about it. :)

Hi All
Below is a quick reminder about the quiz this Sunday. A warm welcome to any new members and a Happy New Year :).
There seems to be an upsurge in media about all things vegan as lots of people try out Veganuary, that wonderful month of trying out vegan.

Organisers for events wanted!

Jane who organised and set up the Meetup group for vegans and vegetarians in Oxford is unable to continue organising in 2014. Jane organised I think around 100 events including many amazing meals. Thank you very much Jane! If anyone would like to organise a meeting, be that drinks, a meal at a rstaurant, a games night, a potluck, a film, a trip out somewhere...then it is easy to suggest this on facebook, or the meetup website, or reply to this email.

There can be lots of help to advertie your idea. General guidance is to provide people with enough notice to fit it into their busy diaries! The Oxford vegan community is definitely becoming more active for students and non-students so let's keep it going :).

This group also of course links very well to the Oxford Students For Animals group, and the Oxford Brookes Vegan and Vegetarian Society (both found on facebook). There is also the http://www.oxfordanimalethics.com/ social group and institute, and http://www.vero.org.uk/ focused on animal research ethics.

.........................................
Thank you, and for those of you having holidays - have some good times! For all those not on holiday - have a good time anyway!
