I think this is the first time I have ever posted on a board... I was just in the neighborhood and found this site. I live in Columbia, SC- and almost always have. I know lots of vegetarians- mostly of the family variety (moms, dads, and kids)- we're here. Even a vegan or two. It's not a super vegan friendly place but you can get by in a lot of the foreign restaurants (Indian, Middle Eastern, East Asian). Just plain vegetarian is easy to do most places here. Rosewood market is a great grocery store/deli- nice place to check out if you're in the neighborhood- you can google it for more info. We do most of our shopping there. Anyway- there's a good group of people here.
