Oddly enough Meat and Bread had a vegan sandwich. Pickled squash, eggplant, carrot puree and red onions.

Richmond's getting a non-Buddhist vegetarian restaurant - Rawk the Planet raw restaurant.

I'm coming to Vancouver for a visit on October 12-15 :) Where do I absolutely have to go while I am there? What are must see and dos? Top 3 restaurants? We are staying downtown near False Creek (I think that's the name of the area). Can't wait :)

I'm sorry to report TeraVBurger sucked big time. I had the smoked tofu salad, which was TINY (like, makes Bandidas or Naam side salads look like a meal) and with limp vegetables and tiny amounts of tofu, and it was served in a plastic container with Kraft Greek dressing from a little plastic packet. My friend's tempeh burger was a bit better, but her fries were half burnt, and it cam in more disposable packaging, and we were eating at the place. Bummer. Good thing we had used a groupon otherwise I would have been so angry at spending ten bucks including tax on a lame salad.
Man, I HATE when veggie places screw up!

What! That sounds so lame. I wish Veggie Grill or Native Foods would buy them out. I think either franchise could really work in kits.

Hey All,

broseph, pistachiorose, and I were talking about getting the old craft night (well, old to them, new to me!) going again. We're going to do Wednesday evenings at Our Town on Kingsway/Broadway. Come craft with us and eat treats and drink coffee!

What's a good start time? Does 7 give everyone enough time to get food in themselves before meeting up?

I'd love to come to craft night, but probably in November since I am in the middle of moving.

I went to the Parker last night for the first time and was incredibly impressed. The food was almost entirely local and organic and was all elegantly presented. Most of the menu can be vegan and the server was helpful with which items made more sense. I've been to Acorn twice and felt the higher prices at the Parker are more warranted than at Acorn in terms of overall experience. Great date night place.

Oh man, it sounds so good! I'm so jealous of all the new veg places opening up in Vancouver.

Can anyone tell me what the cost of at Wholefoods for bulk nutritional yeast? I am paying 12.99 for 400 g from the local little store and wondering if I can save some money from WF. Thanks for any info that will either save me a long trip or justify it.

Bah! I don't know if I'll be able to make it. I've got a rush job I need to push out for Thursday. Actually, scratch that. I can do my work from Our Town.

Can't make it due to Parent Teacher Interviews...but I'm so relieved about Obama! Phew.

Hey guys, I'm in Burnaby.
'Sup.

14 months too late, but welcome!

I'm sorry I keep failing at craft night, school has gotten kinda crazy again, especially weekdays. I'm up to my chin in deadlines until Dec. 14th, but after that, how about doing a holiday dessert potluck or craft night or something? I've been holing myself up in my room/studio and keep forgetting that it's December and all that. Holiday festivities that involve food or making things have a soft place in my heart (minus fiberoptic santa). What do you say?
