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?

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!



https://secure2.convio.net/aspca/sit...ppmoreqc.app5b



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.

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.

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

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!

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!

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.
