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.
