So today I’m working out of the Violet Wire Union workspace, coming up with big ideas on how to create and organize community events in Vancouver. In the absence of Vegan Secret Supper, it might be interesting to do a monthly vegan- or vegan-friendly community supper, maybe in the style of Queer Food for Love.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately on what kind of city I’d like to live in, what kind of events and people I want to surround myself with, and what things I love about other cities that don’t exist in mine. Instead of being surly about it, I want to create those things – and I want other people to help me with that.
Along that line, since Kaylie’s departure I have expanded our Vancouver Vegan Brunch event. Each week I’m combining efforts with a different local chef (starting with close friends of mine) and building a brunch together. This Saturday, March 19th, I’m doing French brunch with Amanda, and the week after (March 26th) my friend Satjeet is cooking Indian brunch.
