ANNOUNCING THE VIDA VEGAN CON THURSDAY NIGHT MEET & GREET:
Whether you’re based in the area or making a bit of a vegan vacation out of your VVCIII plans (Yessssssss), we invite you all to join us for a casual meet & greet from 3pm-6pm at Buzzmill Coffee. This rad coffee shop may be cozy inside, but has a huge outdoor patio with a fire pit and a vegan food cart, Golden Spike Rail Cart. Both Buzzmill and Golden Spike have promised to offer VVC food and drink specials for everybody, so get excited! Plus, we’re easily big fans of a coffee shop that offers coffee, tea and an intriguing assortment of house-infused liquor.
DID SOMEONE SAY VEGAN SCAVENGER HUNT?!?
OH, THERE’S ALWAYS MORE:
That’s right, there are even more classes and panels coming as we super duper finalize the schedule and coordinate with all those fab, hand-selected speakers, so stay tuned for that, and more surprises for both Vida Vegan Con and our opening day Vegan Bazaar.
SEE YOU THEN!

Co-Founders, Vida Vegan Con
Hello, hello! Team Vida Vegan HQ returned from Vegas less than two weeks ago, and as usual, we’ve been hard at work, seriously inspired and sketching out the next three years on our calendar (er, smartphones and Google docs). There is so much in store! It’s no secret that we’re looking at a few very special cities for the much-anticipated Vida Vegan Con III, and that’s in addition to our other events. Read up on this post from way back when, aka last summer, for a reminder on just what those may be: Team Vida Vegan’s Always Cooking Something Up!
It’s also no secret that we adored our first location scouting trip to Austin last February, and with the local vegan community and dining scene growing to epic proportions, including the Capital City storefront, Mr. Natural’s brand-new new vegan brunch, and the new Wheatsville location, we’re coming back in mere days!
Date: Thursday, February 6, 2014
Janessa, Michele and myself will all be there — coats, potential scarves and requisite sunglasses in tow — to hear your ideas for Vida Vegan Con III. We’d also like to know just what else you’d like to see and attend, and frankly, where we should get all those dang vegan tacos. All are welcome!
We do have a ton of appointments at event venues booked around the Austin area already, and are totally open to more suggestions. Please contact us with any tips!
And if you’d like to see more about our Vegas location scouting, check out the hashtag #VidaScoutsVegas. We’ll have a post up detailing the experience and a few of our favorite locations and meals up soon enough, have no doubt.
