Will it be Vegetarian or what? It only mentions tofu-which could be mixed with something like meat? Anyone know?

I heard about it too late last year, having only become vegan a couple of months or so before. Maybe we can swing it this time.

I'm going to be in L.A. anyway tomorrow, and it looks like it doesn't start until after my show, so I may just hang out for it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> It would depend on how good I am at talking my friends I'll be with into it.

I hope they don't have pigs blood tofu. I saw a documentry on tofu (I am a really sad person) and it had people killing a poor pig live and putting its blood into the tofu. I ended up vomiting after that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">

well, i went!<br><br><br><br>
it was very hot in downtown l.a..<br><br><br><br>
but it was fun.<br><br><br><br>
lots of different tofu dishes, not all vegan, but vegetarians had more options. all the food i had was pretty tasty. curry tofu, tofu "burgers', jerk tofu, tofu ice cream (wholesoy, mmm), tofu "chicken", tofu sorbet, soy latte (tea w/boba too), tofu burritos/tacos, tofu noodles, and all other kinds of stuff... lots to choose from. they even had cream puffs and cakes with tofu made fillings (though they were not vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> ).<br><br><br><br>
kind of pricey (8 buck admission, then you had to buy tickets to get food, though that was a pretty good deal since most things were only one or two tickets, and pretty decent tasting portions), but i don't mind supporting a tofu gathering every once in awhile.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
anyone else drop by?

I didn't make it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I ended up not being the one driving to L.A., so I didn't have complete control over where we went. Oh well... it's an annual thing, right? Next year I'll have to plan for it.
