New Year’s Eve For Introverts


Mon, Dec 31, 2018 9:00 PM - Tue, Jan 01, 2019 1:00 AM @ Three Carrots Fountain Square

If you’re like me, you might like the idea of going out on New Year’s Eve, but you definitely don’t want to go to a bar jammed packed with loud people and music. I don’t care about partying nor do I care about ball droppings or Ryan Seacrest, but I do like moments that give us an opportunity to both reflect and plan for the future, and NYE is great for that. So, we’re giving all of us introverts and homebodies an outlet to get to go out on NYE, without all of the chaos and cacophony that accompanies most NYE celebrations.

We’re going to be supplying board games and cards (feel free to bring your own); free canapes, finger foods, and non-alcoholic drinks; a cookie chill-off (a non-competion that involves eating cookies and chilling) and some ambient chill jazz performed by some of our staff. We’ll also have a special menu that you can order off of and our standard supply of alcoholic beverages and cocktails to help make the evening a rather low-key night to remember.

We’ll be closing for normal service at 8:00, and then we will reopen at 9 and then the party will start. Come join us and start your New Year off on the right foot!

Apna Kitchen, formerly Spice Nation, is offering us a totally vegan buffet including vegan tea, dosas, fruit, dessert and much more. The owner is excited to offer this buffet geared to our community. The food was a little spicy in the beginning, but I spoke with the chef and it will now be toned down for us. Please let me know if you have questions or concerns I can pass along because the owner and chef are really trying to please us. The owner said that we can order off the menu anything that you feel is missing and they will bring that dish to the table. You can also let me know prior to the Meetup what dishes you would like on the buffet and I will pass the info onto him so he will include them. Price is now $10.99.

Zoobilation Protest – A Formal Attire Protest


Fri, Jun 08, 2018 6:00 PM - Fri, Jun 08, 2018 8:00 PM @ Indianapolis Zoo

Every year hundreds of donors gather at the Zoo for a black tie formal event to raise money for a some animals while eating cows, pigs, chickens and fishes. Cognitive dissonance at it’s finest.

We will wear formal attire just like the partygoers inside and hold a demonstration at the entrance of the zoo.

The goal is two-fold. It is a rare opportunity to speak up for farmed animals at a Zoo event. We will be highlighting why it is wrong to care about one animal and kill and eat another, in addition to our general message that if you love animals we should not capture and confine them for entertainment.

*Note, formal attire not required, I’m sure it will be a mix.

There will be an after party at Metazoa Brewing Company at 140 S College Ave. Try the Happy Snail Ale, a special brew on the menu for the month of June where $1 of each drink is donated to IARA.
