Hey guys, I live in Boston and I've been to most of the restaurants mentioned in this thread except for Country Life. I must check it out. They don't seem to have a website can someone tell me a bit more about it and why the hours are weird?<br><br><br><br>
I love to eat at Boloco which is on Mass Ave, across from the Berkeley School of Music. You can have them make you a vegan burrito with organic tofu which will blow your mind. I love that they offer organic tofu. Quite unusual for such a carnivorous city like Boston.<br><br><br><br>
I did a 5 course vegan tasting at Veggie Planet in May that absolutely rocked. I hope they continue to have them. I sat with the owner of the restaurant and he and his wife were fabulous.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>

When i started reading this thread, I saw that there was a country life. At that time, I was living in the czech republic and ate at country life every day.... but then i found out that the one in boston closed down awhile ago.. blahhh i'm upset.<br><br><br><br>
also... i go to veggie planet 1-2 times a week.. and have never seen the vegan tasting!? I know they offer special pizzas and soups. oh and try the vegan brownie. it has walnuts on it and is soooo sticky. i dont like sweets but am obsessed with this little treat!

Hey hey, this is a reminder to VBers in and near Boston to plan to meet up with the rest of us for VeBoCon in two weeks. We're thinking of doing a big dinner out on Friday, August 10. PM me to get your name and cell phone number in the list of people to call. We want to see you (and you and you and you) in Boston!

<br><br><br><span style="color:#008000;">Seriously....Veggie Planet was excellent! I'm really happy we ate there. Of course, we ate at a lot of other good vegan places too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"></span>

<a href="http://bostonist.com/2007/11/06/the_joiner_boston_vegan_association.php" target="_blank">http://bostonist.com/2007/11/06/the_...ssociation.php</a><br><br><br><br>
Last Saturday, a group of wallflowers, mostly in their twenties, lined the auditorium of Allston's International Community Church (ICC). The event had all the markings of an awkward youth group mixer, from the empty checkerboard floor to the folk singer on stage. But the attendees weren't there to pray. They were there to eat.<br><br><br><br>
It was the Launch Party for the Boston Vegan Association (BVA), and tables sat covered with food donations from members and local businesses. The offerings formed a cornucopia of goodies -- pizza, chili, cupcakes, chocolate peanut butter cups, and cookies -- that pointedly demonstrated that you can pig out even if you don't eat pig (or pig by-products).<br><br><br><br>
For many in BVA, eating vegan is a form of activism. The specifics of the arguments vary, but members share a common belief that raising animals for food is unjust. Opting out of omnivory is a means of protest, which might be enough for some vegans. But BVA has bigger plans.
