I'm sure something SUPER FUN was coming out of our mouths at this moment, or some extreme praise about the dinner...

October 3rd, 2009 = Fakin' Fest! A potluck style celebration of vegan bacon and bacon flavored delights! Awards for Favorite Dish, Most Creative Fakin' Dish, and best Pop Culture Pig costume! There's talk of a tempeh bacon speed eating contest!
Donations will go to Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, which I visited last year.
Maeve and I decided to put this together on a whim after hearing about Baconfest, ewww - Come join the vegan fun! Tempeh Bacon! Coconut Bacon! Seitan! Tofu! Eggplant!!!
The somewhat official site is here: Fakin' Fest 2009
The Facebook Event is here.
Tempeh Bacon is the best, Am I Right?
October 16, 2009 = The Next Apron Activist Dinner, hosted by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. I've dined and volunteered at these in past, and they're always fantabulous. And for a cause! This time, it's for Monkeys.
Check out the menu and more information about the Chimp Sanctuary Northwest Dinner here.

Hello! - look at how much fun Katie Jayne & I had!
Speaking of fancy dinners, later this month, I'll also be going to an exclusively vegan, multi-course, family style dinner at the newly vegan-friendly, esteemed Belly Timber in SE Portland. I'll report back, for sure! My first meal there was lovely.
