Hi, all. I'm headed to attend a tradeshow in Miami next week. I'm going with my Mom (a near veg*n) and am going to spend a few extra days in the area. We will be staying on Miami Beach. Is anyone here familiar with any Veg*n/ raw restaurants? Thanks.

Boy, are you lucky. I'm going to Miami on Wednesday, so I already did some research. You can find everything you need at happycow.net. My recommendation for raw vegan is Sunshine & AJ Food Without Fire at 747 4th Street, Suite 101 (@ Meridian). It looks cool. Happy Cow has a link to their website, which is terrific.

When I was in L.A. Vegetarian Society and Earthsave were sponsoring and organizing annual Thanksgiving unturkey potlucks in the afternoon and it was a big hit, a huge success. I really miss them and I met a lot of great people. Now, I'm in Miami, which I'm less than thrilled about, and all I can find is a catered book signing event that you have to pay for. I was really bummed and depressed when I learned that. I feel like I'm in the boondocks in unveg-friendly he** and I'm craving social interaction. You wouldn't believe how depressing it is here and how vegans, let alone vegetarians there are here! My husband were really looking forward to attending an afternoon potluck and are really bummed that all we can have is our own traditional vegan thanksgiving lunch meal. We enjoy it, but we want to be with others. Does anyone live in Miami or near and know of anything? We'd be so thrilled if we could find something. I don't miss L.A. at all, but I do miss all the cool veg/organic people there! Okay, well, now that I'm completely depressed. *sigh* Any help and ideas will be greatly appreciated!



Thanks vegan pals!

Does anyone have a recommendation of a vegetarian restaurant (with plenty of vegan choices) in the Bonita Springs and Ft. Myers area?



I would appreciate any help! Thanks.

it was in the 40's last night and a few times recently it dropped into the mid 30's. But i must say because i live on the gulf the 40's feel more like the teens do up north. i was in indianapolis over Thanksgiving and it was about 15-20, but it did not feel any colder then it has been here.



Could you please get in touch with Mother Nature and remind her i live in a Tropical Paradise.

Whoa, I'm surprised I've come across two people from Jacksonville in this thread. Yet another Jacksonville resident here.

I live in Venice, which is between Tampa & Fort Myers. No good veggie restaurants around here, however, I work in the restaurant industry so rarely think about going out to eat.

Hello All! Would like to add that I'm originally from Jacksonville, although now I live in Japan. I was just in the area for christmas time. It was my first one in two years, so it was quite exciting. I was also happy to visit Native Sun Natural Foods. It's like a vegan paradise in the states! I miss it so......

Right now I live in a tiny little village in Wakayama prefecture, a place most have never heard of and will never need to, believe me. Still, it's nice here, beautiful mountains and beaches. It was exciting for me when I first moved as (being born and raised in Florida!) I had never lived in the mountains before. It's different in some ways, I guess.

I'm in Georgia but I'm 30 Minutes away From Jacksonville. I do not know of any good Veggie Resturants but I can tell You that Native Sun Natural Food Store Realy rocks. They have an awsome selection of Vegan Products.
