Oh!! I was just complaining today that the VA thread gets no attention <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Good to see someone new!<br><br><br><br>
Hey Poppy! I'm still planning on coming up for lunch one day when we drive through but probably not until after the holidays... sadly. I do love DC around Christmas.<br><br><br><br>
In a related Virginia topic, I just found a restaraunt called Amalfi's in Norfolk that has tons of awesome vegan stuff. Even vegan chocolate (carob) cheesecake. It was a good find <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

For those of you in or close to the Roanoke area, we have just started a meetup group. It's labeled "vegan" because that's what most of us are, but vegetarians are welcome as well. Just don't expect any of us to bring cheese to the pot luck dinners. If any of you are ever in the area, please feel free to stop by one of our meet-ups.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://vegan.meetup.com/434/" target="_blank">http://vegan.meetup.com/434/</a>

And what about terms like "humane meat," "compassionate standards," and "victory"? - What message do they send to the public?

Lived here my whole life never stumbled across organicfooddepot so thank you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

I'm glad to hear it too. I'll be in VB the first weekend in March teaching a class, and it's nice to know I won't have to just pack up all my food to take with me like I usually do...

Oh there's also <a href="http://www.heritagestore.com/" target="_blank">http://www.heritagestore.com/</a> which is right down at the oceanfront. For a good restaraunt try: <a href="http://amalfiristorante.net/index.html" target="_blank">http://amalfiristorante.net/index.html</a> in norfolk. Though many places can cater something for you not many know what vegan means. If you need any other recomendations or suggestions just let me know! I've lived in Virginia Beach my whole life <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> It's not too unfriendly for vegans but easier for vegetarians.

Hello from another Richmonder! I moved here from Alexandria <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:"> almost 4 years ago. Richmond is a much easier pace for me!
