From the Café Maitreya Newsletter.

Café Maitreya will no longer open in the daytimes.

Some of you will already be aware that, from the beginning of May, Café Maitreya will focus on evening business and no longer open during the daytimes. Sunday 30th April will be the last time we open in the daytimes - but will continue to open in the evenings as usual (Tuesday to Saturday from 6.45pm).

I realise that many people will be disappointed and, along with communicating the change, I also want to explain why we've reached this decision.

More info here. (http://www.veganbristol.makessense.co.uk/news/full_story.html?id=342)

Was at Cafe Kino (Bristol, Nine Tree Hill, Off Stokes Croft) today on it's opening day. It was going to be called "Cafe Mono" but changed it's name at the last minute. We had some good chips and chocolate cake. Get this - they do vegan coissonts(spelling?)! I haven't have them for about 17 years! Really friendly people, all vegan food, lots of space to sit downstairs and open to suggestions of what they should put on the menu. They're planning to open 11am - 10pm every day, but this may change.

Some of you may have already been there. If not, and you happen to be in Bristol, do visit the Sam Smiths pub, The King William (http://www.veganbristol.makessense.co.uk/locations/458.html) on King Street (surprisingly). It serves just the best wheat beer ever. :D

Is anyone interested in helping out with a collection for Animal Aid on Saturday 15th July?
There's only me at the moment cos no-one else seems to be able to do it on that day so anyone with a spare few hours that likes standing on street corners rattling tins or if there are a few of us we could even get it together to have a table on which we can pile lots of leaflets and stuff :D

In a nutshell I have never been so for all your Brizzle folks in the know is it OK or would I better taking my own.

Last year there was Good Thai-dins, Good Gracious Healthy Foods, Now and Zen, and Manic Organic amongst others selling vegan food as far as I'm aware. Manic Organic was too good, so I only ate there, not cheap though. I'm not sure what offerings there will be for booze, but you can take you own in, up to 8 cans or 2 litres wine/beer or 1 litre of spirits as long as its not in glass. I guess there will be more info in Venue either this week or next.

We are just back from a week in Bristol (including a few days out to other places within easy travelling distance)!

We went to Cafe Kino, loved it, also met some vegan friends we had not seen for ages.

Can someone explain to me some of the Bristol dialect mentioned in the Bristol Vegan Guide, such as what does "daps" mean? That one has been bugging me!


Aug 5th, 2006, 09:32 PM
Aren't daps a kind of sports shoe?

Aug 5th, 2006, 10:32 PM
Yeah, at school we called our plimsoles daps.

Aug 5th, 2006, 10:45 PM
Daps are pumps or plimsols. The term may sometimes be applied to trainers as well. Are you speaking of the "Theyz me daps mind!" t- shirts that Beast do?

Yes, that's it, they are mentioned in the Vegan Guide to Bristol and I saw those T shirts in that shop, near where we were staying at the Arches Hotel, thanks to all who answered,


Aug 9th, 2006, 08:30 PM
There are 11 days to go until the BBQ. Still no word on the venue (Gerty?) but is anyone coming or are you all away on hols?
I'm planning to come with Whalespace and Vegan Bikerboy, sans my children, they'll be on a camping trip with my dad.

Aug 10th, 2006, 12:22 PM
I'm definately going to this one :D It's not too far from me. Looking forward to it!
