Dining Out with the Dinner Club

This month we were excited to take Dinner Club to Vedge Cafe in Ann Arbor, which recently announced its menu is now completely vegan! Vedge Cafe has even swapped its tagline to reflect the change, opting for “vegan goodness” instead of “vegan and vegetarian goodness.” The cafe has added vegan stromboli to its menu and will continue to serve vegan comfort food favorites, including the Irish Reuben, soups, salads, warm and cold sandwiches, and desserts. 
 
 
 
We also hosted our 3rd monthly Dinner Club in the Flint-area at Jacq n’ Diane’s, an all-vegan (and mostly raw) restaurant in Holly. The raw walnut tacos and chili were amazing! 
 
 

Celebrate Oktoberfest With Us at the Old Shillelagh

You’re invited to join VegMichigan for our 3rd Annual Oktoberfest celebration at the iconic Old Shillelagh in downtown Detroit on Saturday, September 29 from 6pm – 9pm on the second floor.  The Old Shillelagh has a new vegan menu loaded with delicious options. VegMichigan has reserved the entire second floor, so we will be raffling off great prizes and playing our new and improved vegan trivia game! Plus, the brewery has a great selection of vegan beers and drinks. The only cost is the cost of your food and drinks. Old Shillelagh is located at 349 Monroe St. in Detroit. Please RSVP to: tammy@vegmichigan.org, we would love to see you there!

 

Dinner Club at INDO

Every Tuesday is Vegan Day at INDO in Keego Harbor! The restaurant changes over the fryers and no animal products are served. The VegMichigan Dinner Club enjoyed a gluten-free feast, including, papaya salad, delicious soup, veggie fritters, tofu satay, curry, and sweet-and-sour tofu served family-style. INDO was event able to accommodate a salt, oil, and sugar (SOS)-free meal. 

If you’d like to join the VegMichigan Dinner Club, please contact tammy@vegmichigan.org and check our calendar to see where we’ll be dining next month!

College Outreach 2018

We had a great time meeting students and handing out free vegan snacks and vegan starter kits at Michigan State University’s Sparticipation in East Lansing and Eastern Michigan University’s Eagle Fest in Ypsilanti. VegMichigan partnered with the MSU Veg Club and EMU Veg Planet to reach hundreds of students who attended the event to learn about student organizations and how they can get involved as the new school year kicks off.
 
If you’re a college student who is interested in spreading the vegan message and would like to bring an event to your school, please contact noelle@vegmichigan.org.

Original Cottage Inn Launches Vegan Menu

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Community Outreach Director, Tammy Warren, the Original Cottage Inn restaurant in Ann Arbor has officially launched a full vegan menu!
 
Tammy worked closely with Cottage Inn to test and launch vegan cheeses from Violife this summer, including mozzarella, brie, parmesan, and feta. The restaurant, located at 512 East William St. in Ann Arbor has now made the vegan menu permanent along with a fully gluten-free menu. Vegan options include Impossible Tacos, Garlic Bread, Tuscan Vegan Pizza, and more!
 
We’re excited to announce that VegMichigan will be dining at the Original Cottage Inn on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 6:30–8:30pm (except for November due to our fundraiser). The cost is $20 per person and includes salad, pizza, pop/tea, breadsticks, tax and gratuity! Please see our calendar for details. 
 

Vegan Potlucks Are Back!

VegMichigan was excited to come together for a time of friends, conversation, and of course, food at the latest vegan potluck in August at the Caroline Kennedy Library in Dearborn Heights. Participants brought delicious vegan dishes made without animal-derived products, including meat, eggs, honey, whey or gelatin, to share with approximately 20 people and a recipe sheet. We look forward to continuing this great tradition. Be sure to join us at the next one in Lansing on September 9. See calendar for details.
