While carnivores might not have plans for Thanksgiving, there's always a nearby Denny's with roast turkey and stuffing on the menu. Procrastinating vegans have a bit more of a challenge. But here's an option that's free (kind of) with no RSVP necessary.

Southern California Vegetarians is hosting a vegan potluck in Rancho Park in West Los Angeles tomorrow from 11 AM to 3 PM. Partakers of the feast are asked to bring a dish to feed eight to 10 people, with a list of ingredients and a serving utensil.

Food items should be strictly vegan -- no animal products. This means no honey, milk, eggs and definitely no meat, people. (Chicken or fish are meat, too.) Bring your own earth-friendly place settings, dishes and cups to the potluck.

So to our vegan brethren, enjoy the holiday...without the gobble gobble.

Directions to Rancho Park: About two miles north of I-10 and about two miles east of the 405. From the 10 exit Overland Ave, go north about a mile to Pico. Go east on Pico for about a mile to Motor. Turn right and follow the "VEG" signs to the gathering location.
