Now, am I the only one with guts enough to admit I live in New Jersey, or is this really hell on earth and I'm the only vegan? I should have stayed in California!

Aren't I the lucky one! Good luck to you in Colorado, and for the love of God, don't look back!

Lol...."hell on earth"....I love it. Well, I live in hell, too. I see you live down the shore. Safe to assume you've been to Veggie Works & Down to Earth? I live farther north but make the trip once in a while.

Yeah! I'm not the only one! Yep, go to Veggie Works, although Belmar as a town in general embodies everything I dislike about our culture. I live a few towns south, in Manasquan, which is a little more my pace. I hope you atleast live someplace quiet up north, something the shore area lacks, especially with the upcoming summer madness.

Peace!

I live in Union County, not far from Newark airport. I went to Rutgers for one semester years ago...I wish I hadn't dropped out. I'm sure you won't miss Jersey after you leave. Luthienamandil: it's sure not quiet up here, but I'm sure it's quieter than alot of the shore towns. Did you know that Veggie Works is for sale? The owners want to sell it to someone who will keep it vegan. If it closes or changes, I will be so depressed .

I didn't know Veggie Works is for sale! Boy, if only I had the $$, because we really don't have any other vegan places around. Hopefully they are able to find a suitable buyer that sticks with their way of doing things now.

I know....I just need to hit that lottery and I will buy it . At least there's also Down to Earth but they're alot more expensive than VW and they don't have a salad bar. Plus VW's menu is much more extensive. I'm lucky being farther north since I'm not too far from NYC. Do you get to go there much? I don't go as often as I would like...it is a bit of a hassle getting in there. There's a place in the Village called Red Ramboo which is excellent. They've been there about a year I think.

I worked in the city for 3 years and visit often. I usually go to Indian restaurants; there is one in Brooklyn that's really good, though I can't for the life of me remember the name of it.

I really need to try more Indian food to see if I like it...I've tried a couple of frozen things which didn't thrill me. There's lots of Indian restaurants near where I work, so it would be helpful if I could learn to like their food. I tend to prefer "Americanized" vegetarian food....that's why I like Veggie Works so much. I love the dish they have called the Singing Cowboy....it's my favorite thing off of their menu.

Where is Veggie Works--in Belmar?



I live in the noisy crowded hell of Hudson County and cross the river to NYC daily to work. It's not my favorite place and would prefer to be elsewhere. Oh, well.

Yeah, Veggie Works is in Belmar. I can definitely see hating to commute to the city everyday, but at least you have a lot of veggie restaurants to choose from for lunch, assuming there's one near your work. Too bad they weren't more evenly distributed throughout the city, though....seems like most of them are in the Village. Have you been to Veggie Heaven in Teaneck or Parsippany?

Wow, it's been almost a month since the last post in here.



I live in Jersey, and have my entire life. I don't particularly like living here but don't hate it either. If I were to move anywhere, it would be Cali but I think I might just live out my days in this state. One of the reasons I'm hesitant to move is because I feel the need to fight for animal rights here (of course elsewhere wouldn't be bad either). I do cat rescue and am trying to reduce the number of homeless cats and figure this is a good a place to start as any. I figure if I move away, the animals here will have lost someone working to improve their lives.

One day, when I finally loose it and can't stand being here anymore, I'm going to drive east all the way to the ocean. You know, just pick up and go for the weekend or whatever. I just looked on the map days ago and realized if I did that from where I live I'd end up in New Jersey. They have a board walk there don't they? Wonder how long it'd take to get from Northern Ohio to Jersey to see the Ocean?

It would take a long time, and yes there are many boardwalks. If you're plannign on ever visiting the shore I would suggest Wildwood, its my favorite. In terms of a town/beach, suprisingly, atlantic city is filthy, crime ridden and not very nice.

I've heard that about Atlantic City. I don't believe I'd want to go there. I'd just like to sit by the ocean and listen and watch. Just sit and let the world pass me by. I'd bring my paints and sketch pad too. It would be wonderful! I'd get one of those big floppy beach hats like you see in the movies. I'd probably take someone really close to me with me or I'd go it alone..haven't decided yet.

I don't know how long it would take from Northern Ohio, but it took me about 12 hours to drive to see my sister who lives near Cincinnati. As far as beaches go, I would also suggest Wildwood (it's about 40 miles south of Atlantic City). Their beach is huge, and it's free. I think their boardwalk is about a mile long. If you're vegetarian, you'll do okay for eating with pizza and stuff, but if you're vegan, good luck. Same with all the boardwalks in NJ....they all pretty much have the same kind of food (burgers, cheesesteaks, ice cream, etc.).
