Don't shoot the mesenger but it's looking like the bbq won't be on the 20th now, as the person who kindly offered the use of the house and garden isn't available. So as far as I'm aware it'll be the following weekend. Watch this space, the website, or your email inbox.

On a positive note though, loads of Beanie's Health Foods (http://www.beanieshealthfoods.co.uk/) goodies arrived yesterday.

Yes the date has now changed on the Bristol Vegan's website to Sunday 27th August which is the bank holiday weekend.
I can still go, but I think a lot of people may be away.

The next meet up is still on the 20th, but at Cafe Kino now, the bbq will happen, just in September now. Oh and you'll need to reconfirm that you can make it. More info on the website.

Does anyone know what time the Bristol group meet-up is tomorrow? The website appears to be down and there's no mention of it in any of the emails I've had, just that we'll be meeting tomorrow at Cafe Kino :confused: Can anyone elaborate on this?

It's 2pm at Cafe Kino, which is at 3 Ninetree Hill, Bristol, BS1 3SB (just off Stokes Croft). Their website is www.cafe-kino.com (http://www.cafe-kino.com) and a map is here. (http://www.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?client=public&search_result=&db=pc&lang=&keepicon=true&pc=BS13SB&advanced=&client=public&addr2=&quicksearch=bs1%203sb&addr3=&addr1=) :)

I'll email everyone else.

Great to see vegan forum friends at the Bristol Vegan's meet yesterday, along with local vegans. Top job on food from Cafe Kino even though they did run out of both chocolate cake and then ice cream sundays!
Next time looks like being a BBQ on 16th September. Watch the website for details.

I think that was my fault. I had both!:o The food was lovely and it was nice to catch up with friends, and meet some new people.

You deserved the extra puds for your extra cuddle duties with my children Red!
Is anyone planning on going to the Organic show around the docks(Bristol) on 2nd and 3rd September? I usually find it a bit organic meat and dairy heavy, but you can still find some good veg and vegan stuff. I think I may be down there at some point if anyone wants to meet up.

Looking forward to seeing the Natural Theatre Company (http://www.naturaltheatre.co.uk/index.php) walking about.:D

Venue has the map and program for the event. You have to pay to get in this year- 3.50 I think. There do seem to be a few Vegan things there - both Viva and Vegetarian and Vegan Foundation will be there. Also lots of other interesting food places and talks too.
It's also the kite festival over that weekend which I enjoy because it's so much quieter than the other events up at Ashton Court.
We are just so lucky here in Bristol!

I work in the centre of Bristol and am going out with colleagues for a meal this week. I suggested this place as it should please everyone - I saw they are vegan friendly on the Vegan Bristol site.

Has anyone got any tips or recommendations from the menu? Are they as vegan friendly as I have heard?

Thanks in advance.

That's the place on Colston st isn't it? You just tell them you're vegan when you order and they'll understand. Their meals tend not to be to hot. I think they make to order, all seems very fresh and not too greasy.

It is, yes. I feel a lot happier now you've said they understand at the point of ordering. I'm only a few months vegan and still getting used to these situations.

Cheers :)

Sorry, can I butt in this conversation? :o We're looking to move near to, but not in Bristol, can anyone point us in the direction of a nice town. It can't be more than say, 45 mins away from Bristol. Thank you. I'll butt out now!:D Before I go, what's the best and cheapest place for a vegan family to eat in Bristol?

Kez- Any reason you don't want to live actually in Bristol?
There are loads of places for vegans to eat in Bristol. Most are listed on the Bristol Vegan's website for which there'll be some links above.
My kids particularly like Cafe Kino on Nine Tree hill off Stokes Croft. Mainly because they do chips and vegan chocolate cake!

I live in Glastonbury and work in Bristol. I think glastonbury is a wonderful town and has many vegan and veggie eateries. They out number the omni ones in fact. Vegan, organic, fair trade etc are all a way of life in our little town.

And you'd be more than welcome!

Cookey, we've really got used to living in the sticks since moving to Wales and we like it, but I do want to be closer to towns, as where we are, we have to drive for at least half an hour to get into the nearest town with decent shops which is Swansea. We're going to visit Cafe Kino, please tell me that their Leek, Mushroom and 'Bacon' Pie is vegan! The Tapas sounds lovely too.

Pagan Vegan, we did look at houses in Glastonbury a few years ago, but it just didn't happen. We keep thinking about Glastonbury, but I don't know if it's a little 'too' alternative for me. I want to be somewhere I feel at home, and I don't know if Glastonbury will do that for me. Also it could be a coincidence, but everytime I've visited Glastonbury I have a migraine, or sore throat, or hubbie and I start arguing. I wonder if the 'vibes' there don't suit me. We'll definately be visiting Glastonbury again on our holiday, and I've got the 'over the rainbow' restaurant on my list to visit! What would be the nearest place to Glastonbury for the typical high street shops? I'm thinking of places like Woolworths, M&S, Mothercare etc. Actually I suppose that would be Street's shopping centre wouldn't it? We were also considering Cheddar, what's your honest opinion of the place. It's really hard to get people's true feelings on the internet, because obviously we all don't want to upset other people.

i think the best thing for u to do is to go and explore all these different places and see how u feel in them.
i visited bristol only once, on my to Glastonbury festival and that was enuf for me to know i wanted to live here.
if u have any doubts about somewhere, obviously u shouldnt go and live there!

Big Christmas Party
Now Red, Cummin and VBB, do you remember that we were talking last time we met about having a big party and that your vegan group might be interested in doing something with Bristol Vegans?
Well the plan at the moment is that we hire a community hall in Bristol and get everyone to bring food and their own plate and cutlery and have a very cheap but hopefully sucessful gathering. We could have music or some sort of entertainment. Ellen is currently looking into the venue and date.
Anyone got any ideas and/or wanna come?

Hey, Cookey, we were discussing Christmas with our group and were thinking of doing the same, but nearer our end (but near a train station for those without transport)!! Does that mean we'll have two parties? Either way, I'm up for a party!

It looks like there may be two then, why not!?
As I said before, come forward with those ideas people!
