wow... this threads been dead for a while. Ill have to fix that.

Burlington representing here! I grew up and went to school in Colchester kindergaten through high School, and then decided i needed to get the f*** OUT of Vermont for a while. I lived in Newport RI for a while for school, and then decided to come back and transfer to Champlain college. I appreciate it soo much more now, and being in Burlington now is so completely different then it felt in High school. Ive gotten into the hardcore scene here, and so many of those kids are vegan. Its awesome, I had so much help going vegan in burlington a couple months ago. Burlington Hardcore kids throw some amazing vegan potlucks and bbq's

For a place that has so much vegetarian food available, it's odd that there are hardly any vegetarians here.



I guess the omnis are buying all that soy drink, mock meat, soy cheese, tempeh etc etc.

My parents live just outside Brattleboro. I go visit usually every summer for a week or so. Where's the Common Ground?? My parents are not veggie, so they wouldn't know where to get veggie food, except maybe the co-op.

its on 25 elliot st. not too far from the coop. they have a bunch of vegan/veggie things to choose from. scrambled tofu for breakfast, tempeh reuben for lunch, vegan cesear salads, burritos, seitan steak, cashew burgers, all organic ingredients in everything. there are also a couple indian restaurants and thai places that have good veggie dishes. i've always lived in non veg friendly areas so i felt like a kid at disney world when visiting there.

There was a review/article about Common Ground in our Sunday paper last week........I am very curious to go there now, the article said they now offer meat dishes as well, so I know I can get hubby to go for sure......

We will prob be up that way when the weather warms up.

Is anyone still in Vermont? It seems like everyone grew up here and then left. I'm in Northfield Falls - a tiny little town about 20 minutes outside of Montpelier.

I know, I love the shopping in Montpelier. I go there once a week. There is a great vegan restaurant there too, called Rhapsody.

Montpelier is too far away for me to visit regularly. I love Rhapsodys. I'd definatly eat there more if it wasn't so far away.

And actually...Rhapsodys is not a vegan retauarant ( though they have great vegan fare), they serve fish/sushi.

haha. I sent this to my friend in vermont knowing she would definetly appreciate it (which she did) but she had already seen it after hearing about it on the news there. She also informed me that Jennifer Connelly just bought a house in her neighborhood and two of her coworkers have already run into her at the store. They told her how great of an actress they thought she was and how cool it is that she is vegan and said they would forgive her for doing "The Hulk" because everyone makes mistakes ...lol.

Hey, Vermonters. I've never been to Rhapsody's...

I'm working at STONE SOUP on College Street in Burlington. It has made my dabbling from vegetarianism to veganism MUCH easier.

Word. We have mixed-company potlucks... a few vegans... a few vegetarians... and a few open-minded omnis. Burlington's fairly groovy.

Hi,



I'm originally from NJ but have been exiled to Texas (though HEB and pinto beans RULE!) for almost 30 years. Now some relatives of ours have moved to southern VT and I am researching whether we can escape too. I don't drive and I am sick and tired of SPRAWL (commuting (being driven) an hour a day to work each way) and isolation. I'm looking forward to an old fashioned community and making friends and walking to places (or cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing, or whatever). I'm also Buddhist and vegan. (And 52.). Is Burlington be the best place for my sort of people or does the area around Ludlow where my relatives live have anything promising?



Any help or referrals you can give me would be great.



I'm a medical transcriptionist so can work at home if there is a broadband connection, which there isn't in my middle of nowhere.



thanx,



f
