#1 Restaurant Dinner

Please join us for Bay Area Vegetarians' "Happy Bamboo dinner" in San Jose on Tuesday December 9, 2008 at 7pm . For more information about the dinner and the food at Happy Bamboo, please go to the Bay Area Vegetarians' events calendar at: (substitute your event id)
Happy Bamboo is located just off the 85 freeway at Camden (at Branham) in San Jose .

Happy Bamboo is rated the "Number 1" vegetarian restaurant in the Bay Area Vegetarians' Ultimate Guide. You can read the outstanding reviews at:
The dinner is open to both veg*ns and non-veg*ns, but please note that, if you will be sitting with the group, only VEGAN food can be ordered. Happy Bamboo is about 95% vegan, so that will not be difficult. 
I would appreciate getting an exact count of who will be attending, so that the staff can be prepared to accommodate us. Please RSVP by 12 noon on the day of the dinner, either by replying to this email or at: (substitute your event id)
If it's possible, please try to carpool to the dinner. If you would like to offer a ride to others or are looking to carpool, you may reply to this message to let folks know, and then please make arrangements off-list. 
Also, if you would like to bring home leftovers (though we never seem to have any) or order food to-go, please try to bring a re-usable container.
I look forward to meeting new folks and seeing the "regulars,"

#2 KFC Cruelty Protest

KFC Canada listened to us and agreed to make improvements, and there should also now be increased public concern about factory-farm abuse due to Prop. 2 – now let's keep the pressure on until the other KFCs follow suit!

Please join Bay Area Vegetarians as we protest the Colonel's secret ingredient - animal cruelty!

RSVP at (substitute your event id)

This month's demo will be on Sunday, 12/14/08, from 1:00-2:30 at 200 Duboce Ave (between Guerrero St & Market St). We plan on continuing with this location during the cold weather, then returning to the Marina.

New or experienced activists are welcome. Signs and fliers are provided. Please email me if you need more information about participating in the event.

This is a monthly event, usually the 2nd Sunday but check the events calendar at to confirm.

If you can't make this date but want to help at future ones, please email me.

#3 Veg Leafleting Outreach

People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times. - Isaac Bashevis Singer

Join us as we distribute booklets providing eye-opening information about factory farming and offer recipes & nutritional information for a life-saving and positive choice -- eating a 100% plant-based diet.

No previous experience is necessary - just a smile and a willingness to help animals.

All lit is provided, all you need to do is show up, and bring your smile! No experience necessary, just a willingness to help.

What: Have a Heart, Go Veg Leafleting & Dinner
Where: SF
When: 11/19/08 Wednesday, 4:30 pm
Host: Tammy
RSVP: (substitute your event id)
Full Details: (substitute your event id)

Last month, three of us 'experimented' and distributed nearly 600 booklets in an hour. Read Alex's recap here

Please help us continue to put veg info into the hands of the public by joining us next Wednesday.
