Let's Meetup This Saturday in New York City
This Saturday, I will be representing the NYC Celiac Meetup group at the New York Celebrate Celiac event at the Affinia Hotel in Manhattan. This is the first time Gluten-Free Calendar is bringing their event to the Big Apple. I love events like this where I get to talk with fellow Meetup members, meet new people, and learn about new vendors. If you plan on attending, be sure to stop by and say hello. I will be wearing a cute gluten-free t-shirt (also for sale!) at the table with a red tablecloth.

Here is the most recent list of participating vendors and guest speakers:

  • Udi's 
  • Glutino 
  • Delight Gluten Free 
  • Gluten Free Living 
  • Bakery on Main 
  • Taste Guru 
  • Purely Elizabeth 
  • Mrs. Glees 
  • Beanfields 
  • Lovely Lady Products 
  • Krumville Bakeshop 
  • Gluten Free Labels 
  • Your support group 
  • Kicking 4 Celiacs 
  • Sprue Story 
  • C.A.F.E by Jackie Ourman
