Irvine Wheel of Life, Sat. July 22, 7pm? If everyone is agreeable, that would work for me too.

I'll be there on the 22nd!



Could we try for a lunch meetup next time? I'd prefer not to drive to West Covina or Upland, but I'll take a bus if we can meet a little earlier.

There are alternatives to driving individual vehicles... if we meet earlier in the day.



In any case, if there are just three of us this week, Irvine does seem like quite a distance - from all of our homes! Should we cancel, or ? ? ?

hello? hello? Are there any other SoCal folks out there?!? ? ?



In other news... It appears that the coastal burg that is known as 'Redondo Beach, CA' will soon have not one, but TWO vegetarian restaurants. The evidence, captured by this roving reporter on her cell phone:

Well, for the folks in LA I gotta recomment The Vegan Joint - small hole in the wall kinda place with yummy, inexpensive food. They just opened a few months back, so show some love. And they DELIVER! Yay vegan delivery!!! Over in the Palms area (near National and the 10).



Also, California Vegan! Their soy fish is my fav.

I eat at California Vegan, though word is that the soy chicken is not vegan due to whey protein. I've been avoiding that product since finding out, and I'm still waiting to speak to the manager about it next time we're both there, since he knows me from the first week they opened and respects my opinion.



I'm definitely not making a journey that far South for a meet-up. I probably would go if I did not work on weekends. But, alas, I do.



If anyone wants to watch me chew my tofu, I can do Tuesday and Wednesday breakfasts and lunches, and 7-8ish dinners most nights of the week, unless the drive is longer than 30+ minutes or something random gets scheduled, as often happens in life.



What would be great would be a Google map with pins identifying everyone's general geographic location so we can figure out what restaurants are within reach of the majority of people interested in these meet-ups. What would be even greater would be if I knew how to create that sort of thing.

You can make one at Frappr.com, but warning: the site is incredibly slow to load (on my system, at least). Here's a SoCal Veg*ns map I just created - everyone can mark their locations there now if they like:

That's awesome. I added myself. Thanks for adding in some restaurants, whoever that was. We should add more! Wish it was an easy matter to import them from VegGuide.org or something.

No idea, and nothing was posted in their window, but I'll report back when I have more info!



Thanks for adding yourselves to the frappr map, everyone. I put a few more restaurants on there, and I hope you'll all add your favorites too.



So.... are we still on for 7pm in Irvine tomorrow? ?
