Hey guys, great news! Tomorrow (Friday, November 25th) is the grand opening of a new vegan boutique called Fast & Furless in St. Paul, MN. My friend and fellow EarthSave member has poured his heart and soul into this new shop for us. Please see <a href="http://fastandfurless.com" target="_blank">http://fastandfurless.com</a> for more details. Hope you can stop in and check it out! I'll be there all day doing makeup and demonstrating product.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>

Does anyone know of a good coffee shop in St. Paul to host a group gathering? I'm looking for a place to host my Arbonne meetings that is near a bus line, plenty of parking, vegan friendly, and somewhat nice...somewhere people in business casual attire would fit in. I think this may be a tough task...

If any Minnesotans still frequent this thread, this is your lucky day because I am here now! Just kidding, but seriously, I am Minneapolis raised and currently reside in St. Paul, and I am glad to have found a thread just for Minnesota veggies. I sometimes feel like I am the only vegan in the Twin Cities, as most of the people I know and come across are dyed-in-the-wool meat and potato folks. I love that we have so many vegan-friendly restaurants, but I think we are past-due for a few more all-vegan joints. Ecopolitan is wonderful, but it is definitely NOT the place to bring your non-veggie friends in an attempt to convert them. I get so jealous when reading on vegguide.org about all of the vegan restaurants in other cities. If I wasn't in college and planning on going to graduate school I would totally try to open my own!

The reporter who did the story on Fast and Furless wants to tag along for one of our veg dine-outs. Please contact me if you want to be on the list to get an e-vite. I haven't planned the event yet, but will do so for Feb. very soon.

Our dine-out is coming up this week! It would be great to see some VBers there!!<br><br>
We're going to Udupi cafe. Please send me your email address if you'd like to get the e-vite.<br><br><br><br>
By the way, if anyone ever reads the IL thread, notice how the VBers have joined their local veg meetup group and they are *always* dining out and posting pictures. Don't you agree that we should do that too? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>

I don't know that I'll actually be <i>at</i> the banquet- but I'm am going to help with the cooking from 5-8:30 tomorrow night.<br><br>
I admittedly don't do much with CAA, anymore. I was a bit more involved a few years back. I'm just too busy with school, work, and my volunteer work at Planned Parenthood. I do like to help out when I have the time, though!

Stellar26, I waved at someone who looked like you at the banquet...was that you? Oh my, the food was delicious!<br><br><br><br>
THX-1138, saw your post in the WI thread and your intro. I do recall being graced with your presence last spring at one of our Galactic Pizza dine outs. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
