Hi everyone!

My name is Mandy and my boyfriend Jason (veganbicyclist) and I moved to Austin from Chicago in November. So far we are loving the weather and all the green space and clean air here. We're glad to find a big, active community of vegans and hope to get to know some of you. happy

We live in far south Austin with our two dogs, two cats, two rats, and a grumpy hedgehog (all rescues!). Both of us work for Whole Foods and Jason is trying to bring more vegan awesomeness to the Whole Foods down here.

Thanks for creating such a great resource!

Hi!  Not much more to add for introductions that Mandy didn't cover but will add that we like beer.  A lot.  And bicycling.  So we're eager to join up for the vegan beer drinking outings and the Tour de Vegan.

Hey Mandy and Jason, welcome to VRA! Hope to see you at future events. Since you like beer, I want to invite you to Austin Vegan Drinks on Tues, 2/16 at Rio Rita. More info here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=277195079214&ref=ts

What do you think about a future vegan bike bar crawl?

Welcome to Texas! I just went to Chicago for the first time this past December. Ate at the Handlebar. It was yum! Didn't make it to The Chicago Diner even though I really wanted to. We were only there for less than 24 hours on tour, but next time it is a must!  You will love Austin. My band mate Gary Calhoun James and his fiance Carmen are recent Chicago transplants, and they love it here.

Hope to meet before too long. Vegans rock!

Welcome! There's a couple of local vegan friendly breweries you'd probably be interested in.

And an upcoming brew/pub/coop too!

Thanks for the warm welcome! We definitely plan to attend Vegan Drinks on Tuesday. A bike pub crawl would be right up our alley too.

Thanks for the links to local vegan-friendly breweries. We've tried a few of the offerings but would certainly like to explore more of their beers.

Yeah, thanks for the warm welcome.  I actually cannot make this vegan drinks outing because I have to be in Dallas all week for work.  Next time!  And if a vegan bike bar crawl comes together, count me in!
