Vegans this one is for you! First did you know that there is a local group called "Hudson Valley Vegan's?" They are based in Rhinebeck, but hold vegan themed events on both sides of the river.

Their most recent event will be taking place on Wednesday October 24, 2018 at the Mountain Brauhause in Gardiner. The event is a Vegan Oktoberfest. Here is a look at the menu:

Bavarian Pretzels with 2 mustard's
Seasonal Soup
Vegetable Strudel
Seitan Sauerbraten
Red Cabbage-Greens-Roasted Potatoes
Signature Coconut Cake

The cost of the event is $30 per person and must be paid in advance. At this time the event is at capacity, but they do have a cancellation wait list. If you can't make it to this event, but want more information on the group, which is a 501-c not for profit organization or more details about their vegan Thanksgiving potluck event, you can check out their website,
