Don’t you just love that word… hullabaloo? It sounds like an exotic vegan dish that creates a lot of fuss. I’m into it, as I’m sure were the attendees at the past pub night at the Arrow & Loon in the Glebe (Thurs. May 12) and the NCVA monthly potluck (Sat. May 14), an event to say farewell to the Jack Purcell Community Centre location. While, truth be told, we had a slightly smaller turnout at both events compared to previous similar events, the atmosphere was pleasantly intimate and conversation was overflowing. Indeed, the pub night peeps conversed passionately about interesting issues relevant to themselves, their lives, and particularly vegetarianism and animal rights. Similar interesting tidbits of conversation were snatched up by my prying ears at the potluck dinner. Among the diners were familiar and new faces, and the food at the event was excellent (although that goes without saying). What a great way to share a hearty vegan meal with friends for only $1 for members (and $3 for the rest of ya)! In my NCVA-induced reverie, I foolishly neglected to snap any photos at either event and in consequence, I have nothing to show of it, except my word that good times were had. Anyway, no one uses the word hullabaloo without meaning it.
See you at the next one?
