No veggieboarders in Alabama?<br><br><br><br>
Just in case you're secretly in Alabama and haven't posted yet, check this out.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?threadid=4060" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...?threadid=4060</a><br><br><br><br>
Come to Atlanta this June! It's a neighboring state--not like we're asking you to go cross country or anything! Veggie Love Fest--vegan food, hot chicks, summer solstice, and fun! The more the merrier!

Just found this board and it looks like I'm one of the few from Alabama. I'll see if I can work the Atlanta thing out -- sounds like fun!

I have family in Anniston and Birmingham. Anniston is not too veg friendly, but B'ham is usually ok. Anyone have any restaurant suggestions? I'm going there for the weekend in 2 weeks. I found one place called Surin West that might be good.

I don't know why I haven't posted in this thread before. I live in a small town in central Alabama. If anybody else from AL is still around, hi! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br><br><br>
I'll try to post here now & then, just to keep this thread near the top, where it belongs. (Well, alphabetically, anyway! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> )

Has anybody been to Birmingham to see Vulcan now that the park has reopened? I'm going up with some friends today--we're all super-excited about it! (If any non-Alabamians are wondering what Vulcan is, feel free to ask!)<br><br><br><br>
After that, we're going over to the big farmer's market on Finlay Avenue. I'm hoping that it won't be too early in the season for some kind of yummy veggies.<br><br><br><br>
Yesterday I drove down almost all the way to Montgomery, admiring the peach trees in bloom. I live just about 15 minutes north of Chilton County, so in a few more months, I'll be driving down Highway 82 every Saturday to hit the peach stands. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> Yum! Chilton County peaches....

I was in Huntsville this weekend, and I really liked it. ^_^<br><br><br><br>
(Although driving through that road construction in Birmingham was somewhat unfun.)

Yeah, what was that all about? We came into B'ham on 20/59, and right by the Civic Center, the 2 right lanes were closed. What a nightmare!<br><br><br><br>
So, Ceryna, what did you do in Huntsville? Any fun things you would recommend to others?<br><br><br><br>
If anybody is in B'ham, be sure to go to Vulcan Park. It looks fabulous! The statue is beautifully restored, there's a little museum in the visitor's center, and the tower and observation deck are completely renovated. It's well worth the visit, and worth the $6.00 for a ticket up to the observation deck.<br><br><br><br>
Also, it's quite educational. Did you know that Vulcan is the tallest statue ever <i>constructed</i> in the US, and the second-tallest (next to the Statue of Liberty) located in the US?

I went to visit my new sweetie. *^-^*<br><br><br><br>
We just relaxed and hung out at his house watching anime, movies, and eating veg food (he was a really good sport about trying stuff!) because my trip to Japan is next week and I didn't want to do anything exhausting. ^^<br><br><br><br>
I'll be going back again the weekend of April 25th and we're going to try to go to the Space Center, probably, and maybe the Botanical Gardens.<br><br><br><br>
I'd like to find a faster way to get there, though. My dad mentioned something about driving through Gadsden...I dunno.

Hmm...Ceryna, you're coming from Atlanta, aren't you? If so, you could easily miss B'ham. You would stay on I-20 until you get to Oxford, then head towards Anniston. I think it would probably be a little quicker than going through B'ham, and you wouldn't have to get in that awful traffic.

The last time I visited, I ate at Curry in a Hurry, and Surin West. There's another place that sells falafel and hummus, but I can't think of the name.

Hi Camj77! Welcome to VB. Don't be too quick to put B'ham down. I live in a tiny town smack in the middle of nowhere. The only restaurants in town are a KFC, 2 bbq places, and a Chinese restaurant (yay!). Also, it's a dry county--no liquor sales at all. Quite an exciting little town!

no liqour is scary. I'm going to drink some margaritas tonite ,<br><br>
but I'm finding out I am mildly allergic to some liqours.<br><br>
cordials seem to give me hives.<br><br>
anyway, I LOVE curry in a hurry & surin, even though<br><br>
c.i.a.h. isn't too spicy.<br><br>
Taj India is great , there are several middle eastern places<br><br>
but the 2 *really nice* ones I haven't (much)sampled yet.<br><br>
(Ali babas & The Pita Stop)<br><br>
I lived in montevallo for over 3 years, it was difficult to<br><br>
get a good meal down there.

Yeah, there's not much in Montevallo, but it's such a pretty town! We go there sometimes for coffee at Eclipse, but they only have a couple of salads that are vegan. But it's still better that Centreville, where I'm never sure if the water is veg-safe! j/k

Has everybody been reading about <a href="http://nature.org/wherewework/northamerica/states/alabama/" target="_blank"><span style="color:#0000FF;">this</span>?</a><br><br><br><br>
I've been hearing about this place for years. I can't wait until it's open to the public!

Hi Denia! Are you near Huntsville? I think there is a 7th-Day-Adventist restaurant there. I'll see what I can find out about it.<br><br><br><br>
Welcome to VB, by the way!
