smedley 05-13-2003 02:39 PM

JLRodgers 05-13-2003 02:57 PM

The main state page shows states 1-30 of 51! I just noticed it today (I wasn't expecting there to be a saparate page).



What part in Illinois are you in?

smedley 05-13-2003 02:58 PM

chicago suburbs--you?

JLRodgers 05-13-2003 03:07 PM

Close to Illinois 1 (although in the southern/central part of the state) Close to Terre Haute, IN.

I used to live in Lake Forest in what seems like a thousand years ago. I never really missed it.

This is from an e-mail I received...



There is a house bill in IL that needs to be signed by the governor. It states:



Illinois: Ask the Governor to Sign HB 1089 To Require Forfeiture of Real Property Used in Animal Fighting Dog and cockfighting are illegal blood sports. These barbaric activities have no place in civilized society. The animals used in these fights are often severely injured or killed. Illegal weapons and drugs are often present at these matches.



Property forfeiture is a necessary deterrent to stop these clandestine activities. Unfortunately animal fighting is on the rise in our state. Promoters of these bouts should not be allowed to keep their ill-gotten gains.



ASPCA has a letter created and all you need to do is go and enter your name/address and if you want you may add some of your own words to the letter. It only takes about 5 minutes to do and if we can get it passed, it will be 5 minutes well spent!

Please pass this on to all of your animal loving friends.

I live in Oak Park, a Chicago suburb. Thanks, Michael, for the ASPCA link. I've already signed it and passed it on to others.

Michael 05-24-2003 01:25 PM

I don't live in Illinois, but I'm only about an hour from Chicago.

GhostUser 06-08-2003 02:49 PM

anyone else from Chicago? there's a great veggie and vegan restaurant on the northside--The Chicago Diner. Good stuff.

Michael 06-08-2003 02:53 PM

I'm from 2 hours south, haven't been to Chicago Diner yet, though I've heard a lot about it. Have been to Soul Vegetarian for breakfast. Scrambled tofu.

GhostUser 06-08-2003 03:01 PM

come on up sometime and we'll go to the diner... Soul Veg is great!

GhostUser 06-24-2003 02:38 AM



Are their any Illinois animal rights activists,vegans or vegetarians on this site?If so would you be interested in joing an anti kfc protest this weekend?? If so,email me at [email protected],it would be greatly appreciated.

GhostUser 07-08-2003 04:19 PM

I'm from Illinois. I live on the South Side, and I love Soul Vegetarian. I had a Veggie Gyro from their the other day, it was ok I guess, I took the meat out.



Is the parking pretty bad around the Chicago Diner? I've never eaten there before.

neon 07-09-2003 02:32 PM

I am from Peoria, IL here

carnelian 07-09-2003 02:39 PM

Yippee!! More Illinois people!

smedley 07-12-2003 04:55 PM

i am staying downtown with friends to celbrate our birthdays--anyone know of any saucy nightclubs in downtown chicago?

Michael 07-12-2003 08:31 PM

I'm sure they've all changed since I've been there. Excalibur always seemed like one of the more popular clubs.

smedley 07-13-2003 09:37 AM

yes- i am familiar with chicago diner area, tho the gals i will be with are not veg*n and would not appreciate that area. i have been to excaliber years ago (you know when i was a youngin!!). i really dread it all as i really cannot stay up late tho still enjoy the scene!!

gobanana 07-16-2003 06:49 PM

I am new and I am from Lockport, IL, which is near the south side of chicago.

monkeyandbunny 07-17-2003 04:57 PM

mmmm Chicago Diner rool: mmmm



I lived in Chicago in Andersonville for 2 years, I worked in the west loop. I grew up in Munster Indiana, which is 30 miles from the Chicago loop. Northwest Indiana the red headed step child of Illinois and the hated ******* of Indiana.



I miss the city and all it's convenience!

Wiccanveg 07-17-2003 11:34 PM

I live in the edgewater area, and if anyone is up here, check out Alice and Friends on Broadway, down the street from Moody's pub. It's an incredible vegegarian cafe, most items are vegan and it tells which ones have whey powder and honey. Other favorite places include Amitabul, and definetly Soul Vegetarian tops the Chicago Diner.

I did my time in the 'burbs, decided my commute was too short, so moved to Streeterville (1.5 hour commute - all public transportation - woohoo!).

Wiccan, I love Alice and Friends. Their Full Moon Harvest ranks high up on my fav. foods of all time. One of my favorite places to eat was the Veg. Express Gourmet , almost an hour's drive away, but well worth it. I hear it's closed now

For non-vegan cheap eats in the city, there's the Olive Branch, off Wells & Ohio - their falafels are awesome. I can go on and on , but I'll stop.

Is anyone here signed up with the vegetarian group on meetup? I'd love to meet more veg-heads in the city!

carnelian 07-23-2003 12:58 PM

I'm going to the next Vegan Meetup (this will be my first one), which is being held at Chicago Diner from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. on the patio on Saturday, August 2nd!

angelene17 07-26-2003 12:44 PM

I live in Great Lakes, which is about 45 minutes from Chicago....anyone know of any good restaurants to go to? I know of only one in Evanston.

Angelene, there's a lot of great veg. restaturants in the city. Blind Faith in Evanston is a good one, but the newest one that everyone raves about is Alice & Friends - it's off Broadway, in Uptown Chicago. There's Karyn's corner, which is awesome. Chicago diner ... well, I could go on and on. I'm sure there's a list somewhere.

You should come to one of the meetups here . We'll fill your head full of restaurant info.

Michael 07-28-2003 03:04 PM

And Soul Vegetarian.
