I would, but I work Saturdays and will be gone this weekend. I hope a couple more people sign up to go so that you'll be able to, though!

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

Hey Christy and Ceryna, good to hear there are at least some like-minded people around here. The Meetup was cancelled... I put out feelers to still have an unofficial function but no bites yet. Ah well, always next time.

Here we go again. I have tickets to see Jill Scott on October 23rd at Dekalb Atlanta Center. The same coworker who ended up going to see Erykah Badu with me said she'd go a month or so ago. She is now saying she'll go if I don't find anyone else. So, I thought I'd give it a shot. I don't know of anyone that likes her, or that I'd want to go with me to a concert.

I'm seriously considering selling these tickets now. Any takers? I may put them on eBay. It's just a pain in the ass, and the coworker doesn't seem to want to go now. How much fun would that be?

The former Atlanta Vegan Meetup has moved to Yahoo Groups and is now the Atlanta Vegan Activity Group . We meet once each month to share delicious vegan food. We usually meet at an intown vegetarian restaurant or hold a vegan potluck.



To learn more about the group or to join, please visit

Thanks!

Update: I HAD to get out of Valdosta, so I moved back up to the Atlanta suburbs (Hopefully I'll be in the city within the year). To the person going to Valdosta. If you want to buy tempeh, miso, nutritional yeast, herbs, ect. The people that run Another Way in Remerton are really nice, and are extremely helpful.

I decided to head over to Norcross today to eat at one of my favorite restaurants... Fung's Vegetarian... and they were out of business!



This was the nicest place run by the friendliest people you could ever hope to meet. They had left a sign on the door saying the restaurant had closed down and thanking everyone for their business.



Does anyone know what happened? I will really miss that place and its delicious food!

I heard that Fung's was just changing locations, but maybe that fell through. I never got around to eating there because my husband told me that it wasn't great, but I did know other people who liked it.

Either way, it's always sad when a veg restaurant goes under.

Thanks for the info, MissLeigh.



I do hope they re-open somewhere else... the sign didn't mention anything about a new store though... just a nice handwritten "thank you and good bye". Either way, I hope the owners find happiness in their next endeavors... I will miss that place.

i'm in east atlanta. lately i've been cooking more than eating out, but some of the places i haunt are cameli's (or whatever they're calling themselves these days, veggie cafe or something) on glenwood, moe's (rice, beans, guac, and tortillas are vegan plus they have tofu), return to eden market on cheshire bridge carries a fake turkey salad sandwich, and just the spread, that i'm completely addicted to, queen of sheba ethiopian restaurant by target on north druid hills told me all of their veggie dishes are butter free, udipi cafe on lawrenceville hwy is vegetarian indian and has vegan options, r. thomas on peachtree is great for mixed company, cafe sunflower of course, just tried veggieland and will be back, soul vegetarian on north highland, persepolos on roswell road has vegan options if you ask, green sprout at monroe & piedmont, harmony on buford hwy, and chinese buddha on 14th st. i'm sure i'm forgetting something. when i have a mighty need for a special sweet, i'll hit whole foods for a vegan chocolate cookie, pick up a piece of cake at sevananda market (love the chocolate & carrot) or pick up something at cameli's. had a great raspberry chocolate cake there. damn, now i want dessert....

Hi... just bumped into your question when I was looking up some veggie restaurant stuff. Fung's is now in the Roswell area. They just put an ad in our local ad flier and I called them and they said they are on Woodstock road and just moved from Norcross. So your favorite restaurant is still around! Just had to let you know... Sonia

Hey, this landed in my mailbox this week. Thought some of you might be interested.



Laura



-----------------------------------------



The Vegetarian Society of Georgia (VSG) and Georgia Animal Rights and

Protection (GARP) are proud to announce an evening with The Mad Cowboy,

Howard Lyman, on Wednesday, Oct. 19 in Atlanta. Mr. Lyman is a fourth

generation cattle rancher who became vegan activist after suffering a severe health crisis.



Most people know Mr. Lyman as Oprah Winfreys co-defendant in a 1996 court case filed by some Texas cattlemen. The lawsuit alleged that Mr. Lyman and Ms. Winfrey had violated a Texas law that forbids "knowingly making false statements" about agricultural business when they talked about "mad cow disease" in beef. In 1998, the Texas jury found Mr. Lyman and Ms. Winfrey were not criminally liable for their comments.



Where: The Fulton County Central Library, 1 Margaret Mitchell Square, NW,

Atlanta, GA 30303; phone (404) 730-1700. The library is in downtown Atlanta, at the corner of Forsyth Street and Carnegie Way, just two blocks south of the Peachtree Center MARTA station.



When: Wednesday, October 19, 2005, 6:30-8:30 p.m



What: His talk, "Eating the Earth a Bite at a Time" will be followed by a Q&A session and a book signing. Admission is free although we would greatly appreciate donations to help cover the costs of the event.



For More information please visit our websites:

I live a little east of Atlanta, and go to Oxford College of Emory University in Oxford, Georgia. I think that apart from maybe a couple of hindus, I actually am the only vegan on campus. Anyone who wants to meet up sometime I would love to.



Anyone else find the Dekalb World Farmer's Market to be their favorite Atlanta hangout? haha

In case you might be interested, here is a link to a vegan dining group in Atlanta (we used to be on Meetup till they started charging):
