Hi Danke;



I live in the area and there is a sizable veg community.



Here are some of my favorite veggie links ( mmmmm, veggie links )

Vegetarian Society Of The District Of Columbia (VSDC)

http://www.vsdc.org



North America's oldest vegetarian organization started in 1927.

It hosts a variety of free social clubs for vegans and vegetarians.

It has a monthly restaurant visit, a book club, a singles club,

a raw food club, an African American networking club, yearly

Thanksgiving dinners that include hundreds of veg*ns, and a one

day VegFest convention with speakers, food, and fun in October.



It also has a very complete events calendar for all veg*n related

events in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. You can use it to

find something fun to do every weekend.



Events are held in Washington D.C., suburban Maryland, and

Northern Virginia

The speaker is the president of the vegetarian society of the district of columbia, one of the clubs I volunteer for. I know him quite well and he is quite down to Earth.



I don't know much about the Bahai, but I do know they are very respectful of other people and they don't push themselves on anyone. The ones in the DC area are sort of like straight edge reggae people.

I will be in D.C. this Sun-Thurs for a work conference. I will be coming in mid-afternoon on Sunday and will be staying at the Omni Shoreham hotel at 2500 Calvert St. Anyone know of any good vegan eats that are close to the hotel? I've looked on vegdc.com but it looks like I'll have to take the metro to get anywhere on there. Anyone know of any places that are close to the hotel?

The hotel you're staying at is very close to the Woodley Park/Adam's Morgan metro stop (5 min walk). So the restaurants listed on vegdc.com near that stop would be useful for you. There's actually more places than what is listed there so I don't think you'll have a problem finding some tasty treats.



One of my favorite restaurants in that area is Lebanese Taverna. All delicious, mouth-watering Mediterranean food. I highly recommend going there. It's located on Connecticut Ave right across the street from the metro stop.



Have fun!

for not telling us you're in DC and for following me around the country



So, how you like DC? I moved downtown a few months ago - Shaw/Logan area. Love these swampy DC summers!

Darling, go to the Mediterranean Cafe. It's on Connecticut, over by Fort Reno and the Pool Hall. They have the most fabulous falafel sandwich you'll ever eat. And Belly Dancing on Thursday night! Hehe.

I always go to the Takoma Park market on Sundays. Good produce (once things start growing! We're having awful luck with tomatoes this year) ... But besides that, lots of fresh baked breads and pastries, flower bouquets, and lots of kitschy things to delight my eyeballs.

Sunday AMs @ Dupont Circle - producers-only farmers market from PA-to-VA. If you see a tall shady-looking bald headed fella lurking around, it's either me, or the homeless guy that looks a little too much like me for comfort.



P.s. I know! DC has so much cool free stuff!!! But I'd still rather be in Philly...

i know what i'm doing on sunday....just not sure which one yet



it's funny, by May I'd had sorta had enough of philly and was excited to go somewhere different for the summer....but lately, I've gotten a little nostalgic for the place. I'll be back in sept though for another school year, i'm sure i'll get over it once the cold weather and schoolwork set in. plus, i'll miss DC by then

Didjya go? Didjya go? I was there around 10:30. I bought an eggplant, some funky-ass squashes, tomotoes ('tis the season!) and some fresh basil



And then I ruined them all by cooking!

didn't go, ended up going to Eastern Market last Saturday, by which I was sorely disappointed. it was hot and crowded - the produce that is. all overripe and didn't seem too local nor organic.



tomorrow i'll probably be too hungover to make it to dupont. hmm.

As you know, the practice of meditation dates back to the ancient times, and it seems that science is now rediscovering some of its benefits.



Quan Yin Meditation is an ancient method of meditation that contemplates on the Inner Light and Inner Sound. This inner vibration resonates with the vibration of the universe and has been repeatedly described in various literatures of old. Being in touch with this vibration brings peace and contentment within, and awakens the inherent wisdom and power that is a God-given gift within each of us. This inner peace and wisdom in turn contribute to creating a more positive and peaceful society for our world.



The Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association is a non-profit,charitable organization that is self-sufficient and does not accept any public donations. It has been actively participating in relief works and humanitarian aids throughout the world.



At the wake of information explosion, moral and spiritual development of mankind must be kept in pace to maintain the balance with scientific and technological advancement. In the spirit of brotherhood, the Association is dedicated to share this method of Quan Yin Meditation free to all who seek for enlightenment, love and peace of the world.

Ahhhhh Gaithersburg... My old stomping ground... And Sticky - right down the street from my new stomping ground! I would argue that Gaithersburg is very much NOT cool though, but then who thinks their hometown is cool?
