The Beginning of Crisp Eves and Falling Leaves

A blink of an eye and Septembers over. We didn't manage to leave the country this month, as we were super busy with organising ourselves and local events.
On the first weekend of September we made our way to a little village in Yorkshire for a friends party. There was the most adorable dogs there and they made the most delicious food. We forgot to get photos of the food, so you will just have to take our word for it that it was to die for.
Our new best friends.
|We attended a little childfree party.|
We put together a little video of some of the places we go in Birmingham.
Our flat that we were living in was having a damp/mold problem and it was getting really hard to live comfortably there. We had a hard time breathing at night, and found going home was becoming unbearable.
Our friend Deadpan Vegan offered us a room in his flat and we decided that it was probably a good idea for our health to move in. We had been thinking of other options of what we could do to stay in our flat, but it just wasn't possible. We decided that in order to enjoy our last few months in England and not move back to Canada sooner, that moving in with him was our only option.

We spent the weekend cleaning and moving our stuff to Deadpan Vegans flat. We spent the day putting together IKEA furniture and making the flat comfortable for three people
The next day we woke up with slight headaches, but had to finish setting up the flat. We went to the store and bought some groceries, finished unpacking and relaxed.
|Hello New Room|
We had quite a few vegan events to attend this month.
We made a little compilation video of the events this weekend:
First we went to Birmingham Vegans Drinks night, which ended up turning into a giant board game night. It was awesome. We played a game called dingbats and Jenga as well.
The next event we went to was 3 Three's Lounge night, where they have an open mic night. 3 Three's is a vegetarian coffee shop that has lots of vegan food and drinks. Our friend Deadpan Vegan preformed, as did a couple of poets. We also all wore our Vegan T-shirts and had 50% off our hot drinks!
When we got back to Birmingham from Leicester, we got ready for another Birmingham Vegan event. It was a meetup at the Gunmakers Arms. They have recently started doing a special vegan menu, so we went for some food, drinks and good people. Tonight they had two really good curry's. It was a lovely night, and it's awesome that we have new vegans coming to every event.
The curry was really tasty and all the Beers they make in the attached Two Towers Brewery, named after Lord of the Rings, are vegan as well.
We had a grand ole time playing darts at the Gunmaker's. They have darts, table football (Foosball), and TVs, etc etc.
For the last Birmingham Vegans event of the month, we went to Handmade Burger for a vegan take over. They recently started offering vegan milkshakes! We had an Oreo shake, burgers and chips. There was a lot of new comers to the event, so it was lovely to meet some more vegans in Birmingham.
On the last day of September, we got word that Vegan Grindhouse was set up in Brindley Place for lunch time. We decided to meet for lunch and enjoy their Original Grindhouse Burger. It was really tasty and well worth the visit. It could get dangerous if they set up there on a regular basis though.
With another month abroad behind us, we are busily working at planning the best five months that we have left in the city of Birmingham.
