bump :D


I'm not sure if the OP even visits here, but if you do, is there an update for the food vendors yet?  That is my favorite part of veggie fest.  I really don't care about the talks that much.  They would be preaching to a member of the choir.  


Except Ms Kaminsky might be interesting.  It always comes back to food for me :P

I was discussing this with friends yesterday and this question came up: "Will the event be dog friendly?"

This is a public school, so only registered guide dogs are allowed.
