I love L.A....
Rikki Rockitt's not my idol or anything, but I certainly remember some Poison tunes with fondness and, hey, he's vegan. He's also a super nice guy.
Just a few minutes ago, he came in to the new vegan restaurant less than a block from my front doorstep with his girlfriend and an animal activist I do some work for (I'm seeing him all over L.A. these days!), and I was introduced.
I'm used to this type of thing over at Real Food Daily, but I went down to California Vegan for a quick bite, and I was a total mess since I more or less just stumbled out of my apartment. I simply didn't expect to run into anyone I know. Oops.
I love how cool and small a world the vegan Hollywood community is (Alicia Silverstone and I even share an allergist). You get to bump into some interesting people, even people whose music you listened to when you were a kid!
