Dallas Vegan Drinks meets every second Thursday of the month at different veg friendly venues. 

Meet fellow veg*an and veg-friendly folks for a great evening of drinks, fun, and discussion on vegan goings-on in the Metroplex.

For many years we've been having Thanksgiving lunch at Kalachandji's, and since we won't be there on that day, let's have a meal there a few days later. 

This is Dallas' longest surviving vegetarian restaurant, which is located in a Hare Krishna temple. All dishes are prepared with the freshest ingredients available and use the Ayurvedic art of cooking. Most items are vegan, except those dishes that are indicated to contain dairy. 

A community meeting has been organized at the Park in the Woods Recreation Center with District 3 Councilman Casey Thomas to express opposition to zoning application change (z 145-357). The proposed zoning change is from Residential Zoning (PD 521 S-2a) to Industrial Zoning (PD 521 S-1c,d) on the property south of I-20 and to the east of Mountain Creek Parkway and north of Camp Wisdom Rd. The zoning change would allow a 1.8 million square foot warehouse, the size of 31 football fields, in the entrance/gateway to the Mountain Creek community of 2,000 homes.  

Learn how to plan, stay warm, select winter appropriate gear and what to expect when setting up camp and during your overnight. Free.

Local experts Patrick Kennedy and Monte Anderson will explain its history and core principles, identify common misperceptions about it, show some examples of successful implementation and explain how its principles inform the debate about Dallas’ future.  Learn about key concepts – the Transect, building to the human scale, organic growth/adaptive re-use, “complete streets” – and the reforms needed to make it all possible. First session is free. Series continues Oct. 26 and Nov. 23.
