After social and economic issues appeared during the late s, The Motor City saw its population decrease, and by the time the s approached, Detroit was a running punchline for anyone looking for an easy target when describing just how far a town could fall. However, the blue-collar attitude that built Motown never left, and Detroit is back with a vengeance. Artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, and others with fresh ideas have invaded the city limits and suburbs, eager to rebuild what once made Detroit—and its surrounding region—special. During the past few years, the food scene has completely expanded thanks to successful restaurants in neighboring cities such as Birmingham and Royal Oak.
For instance, there are places where vegan guys out women. In other cities, women will up early, while guys need a bit of encouragement.
The matching part flows naturally from there. The idea was so unique that local press showed up, with one reporter even going undercover to try it out.
The goal is to match more vegans in one week than ever before, including in new places such as the American South. Karine and Andy Brighten are the co-founders of Find Veg Love and creators of Veg Speed Date and have been working on vegan business and advocacy projects for 12 years.
Load more. There were obvious contenders for the top vegan cities, but we also wanted lesser-known towns, so we asked people on social media to vote for their regions. How would we tabulate match ?
The early days What began as a fun experiment became a local institution. When we started tracking statistics last year, we discovered three out of every four participants were matching at these all-ages events.
All of a sudden, a little-known San Francisco-area event we started for fun became a fresh alternative for veg singles across North America to meet. Love the plant-based lifestyle as much as we do?
Watching people discover how many vegan singles were in the area was refreshing, and seeing strangers make connections in person felt like a breakthrough. We decided to find out. Karine began hosting events every three months at a romantic spot in San Francisco called Pause Wine Bar. One night, Andy helped run it and had so much fun that he started coming every time.

From coast to coast Bringing Veg Speed Dating elsewhere raised questions: how would we select the cities? In the early years, Veg Speed Date was open to everyone 21 and over, and the crowds were always diverse.
Lessons learned We learned a great deal during the course of the past year—some of it surprising. This information got us thinking: could these events work in other cities?
Eventually, we started learning that people who had met at the event were moving in together and getting married. Andy worked on custom web software, while Karine built a network of hosts to emcee the events, as well as teaming with vegan-friendly venues.
