Yes, quite close actually. Is that one of the places you stayed? I was in NYC when you were in San Diego I believe...

random thought. wouldn't it have been crazy to be in the same city right near where someonelse on the VF lived and most likely pass them on the street and you never knew it? just an interesting thought that I figured ide throw out there :p

We actually took it easy - went shopping at Fashion Valley and Horton Plaza, went to the baseball, ate at some Persian restaurant...I was actually in SD from 28th September - 1st October.

It was somewhere in the Gaslamp area - 5th street I think. Can't remember what it was called, but I had like a split pea/eggplant spicy thing with saffron rice. Otherwise I lived off Jamba Juices, and plain bean burritos (god if I ever eat mexican again I will vomit). I also ate at wholefoods - sesame broccoli and brown rice! And yes, I did eat plenty of junk food. And I fell in love with the combination of dates and walnuts right in San Diego, where I discovered date and walnut rolls :D

HA! That review must be really old; it's not even 1/2 vegetarian and *not* organic at all!

Yeah, that's what I meant...the Hapycow review must be really old. I wish I could just tour around and write a book of reviews for vegan food! Problem is, even that would be outdated quickly due to high turnover etc.

I used Happycow like the bible when I was in the US, and a lot of the time, places were either
1. shut down
2. disgusting looking, that I would have prefered to eat out of a garbage bin :)

I can't remember now where they were, but I basically got by in the US coz of the miracle that is Whole Foods :)

Wholefoods is where I live. Most weeks I go there just about everyday for lunch and to grocery shop. There arn't many options in the area at all and this is the south in the US which means its BBQ and pork and steak country, groossss. so most restaurants dont even have many options, plus its all practically fast food and chains anyways which again rarely have much. thus whole foods is my life and i am so thankful to have one right down the street!

Nice! Too bad they didn't go with a VEGAN catering company! It sure would be nice if ethical events that focus on offering vegan foods would support vegan catering companies (who can do vegan food better anyway!).

Yeah, maybe so, mail them, and suggest a range of people that could have done it.
