I was raised in KCMO. Moved around a bit. Recently had lunch with my dad at - I think it was called - Lula's Thai. He works downtown KCMO, lives in Shawnee, KS.

I'm from St. Louis. I'm stuck in Charleston right now though, but I'm trying to get back. (Or at least to Scott AFB which is close enough)

I'm from KC, born & raised!

Anyone in or near Kansas City, visit www.VegKC.com. My friends run the whole thing, and every month we have lil' vegan potlucks (in which I bring the best food...hehehe...) We also have a veg*n meetup once a month, and those are pretty cool. vegan.meetup.com/4 and vegetarian.meetup.com/14

So, if you're in KC and you're looking for a local veg*n group to hang with, this is it.

You sure do plan ahead! Whats bringing you to STL? I only know of four of 'us' that live here. Unfortunately, two of those people are no longer VB-ers.

Arbonne is holding their National Training Conference there. Beware, the city will be taken over with gorgeous women!

I just saw this. What part of KCMO were you around? I love downtown KC. I still get lost after all these years, lol. Did you go to high school or grade school around here? I went to Truman High. Yes, it was a very high school, lol



I know the Shawnee area a little bit. What does your dad do dowtown?

Has anyone here ever been to Pita +? Like... 1/2 of their menu is vegan-friendly, without being mock anything. It isn't all up on the wall with the rest of the menu, some of it you have to ask for.



But seriously, Pita += the best falafel in the freakin' universe.

St. Louis, born and raised. I just recently moved to House Springs, which isn't too far away from STL.



Just recently I paid a visit to Eternity Vegetarian Deli & Juice Bar. It's on Euclid. Cool place.. all their items are vegan-friendly If you go there, be sure to get a berry smoothie! It's delicious! Anyone else here eaten there?

My husband was raised in Higginsville. Small town meat people. Sorry, you are not going to find much. Jump on I-70 west for 40 minutes and hit KC. You will have better luck.



Go to the grocery store on Fairground Ave. Ask for Rick. See if he can help you cuz he owns the grocery store. (that is in higginsville and see if that works.)

lol, I forgot to mention Warrensburg last night also. Just a big college town and maybe not much. The hours I have to spend in Higginsville makes me crazy!

Chesterfield, Missouri here. There's a Pita + just down the road from me, although I had NO idea what it was until you mentioned it. I thought for sure it was an electronics store, haha.

Are you freaking kidding me? I just moved out of Chesterfield in to the city. Considering the small population of Chesterfield its interesting that we've have several VBs from the area.

Yep, it's not even three minutes away from me now. It's right off of Olive in a strip mall with Happy China (?), Dobbs, and a bunch of other stores. Where do you live now?

I just moved to South City STL. I lived off Baxter, near the mall, for two years. Its definately a nice area, just not good for a daily commute downtown.

Ahhhh, yeah, definitely. I used to commute from Wright City all the way down to the St. Louis Science Center when I was an intern there. That was horrid.

Blech. I'm not sure exactly where Wright City is, but I know its not close to the Science Center. Seems like all your intern money would be spent on gas. Hopefully, the experience was worth it! I'm very happy to be able to avoid highway 40 and the area near the science center on most days. Another benefit to the move is that I'm only 5-10 minutes from Eternity Cafe now. One of these day I'm going to drag my mother there. She volunteered in the past. I'll have to finally cash in on that offer

Oh, yes, Wright City is absolutely no where near the Science Center. It's about 10 minutes further west of Wentzville. And what intern money? It was unpaid.



Anyway, I'll have to check out that Eternity Cafe place. Do they have a website or anything?

Eek. I hope it was at least fun.



I haven't seen a website for Eternity Cafe, but they have a map and info on happycow.net : http://www.happycow.net/north_americ...uis/index.html
