Since March, Black creatives, entrepreneurs, and millennials have joined together for "Convened: The Dropping Pin Meetup." The monthly meetings, led by David White Jr. (founder of The Dropping Pin), is now a popular minority-based networking event that has recently inspired a plant-based pop-up to be held on Saturday, September 29th.
“Through word-of-mouth and social media, ‘Convened’ continues to grow and so does the number of inquiries we receive about hosting the meetups somewhere more vegan-friendly,” White said.
To kick off the Fall/Winter season, White will host "Convened: The Dropping Pin’s Vegan Pop-Up." In collaboration with his longtime friend Sterling “Chef Sterl” Chisolm, the pop-up will feature a menu that will include: Sweet Potato Skins, Notchos, Pulled porkless, and Loaded Mac N Cheez.
