    Santa Cruz is my home town. Graduated from Soquel High.

    I now live near Chico after I lived out of the state for 10 years. I hope to move back to the actual town of Chico in the next few years.

    Oh also, If you live in Northern California, has any one else been to the Farm Sanctuary shelter near Orland? I just went to their "Ho Down" this past Saturday and will attend my third Thanksgiving Celebration For The Turkeys this November.

    It's a wonderful place and they have Saturday or special request tours through the warmer months. I'm a member and consider all the animals there my friends. I especially love cows.

    There's a way cool restaurant in Santa Barbara that's vegan friendly. There's a chance I'll be moving there. There's not much of a surfing scene in Nebraska.

    I live in Berkeley which is awesome for vegans, but I'm going to college in Los Angeles. i have to say that so far it SUCKS. esp. since i'm in south central/downtown, its very very far away from any health food stores and I don't have a car or anything.

    jjdaiquiri, I wish I knew a vegan ink tattoo shop in CA but I don't so I'm probably no help. But, If you ever visit Victoria, B.C. you can go to the tattoo shop owned by Sarah Kramer and her husband. She is one of the authors of How It All Vegan and In the Garden of Vegan. you can see her website at govegan.com. Sorry I can't be of more help for local shops. But go to Victoria, it's fucking beautiful.

    theres a pretty good indian place on state street.

    natural cafe (also on state) has good food, but dont trust what the say is vegan, ask to look at the ingredients lists (they keep it all in a binder behind the counter).

    i live in santa barbara... don't go to the natural cafe, I have gotten stray bits of chicken and cheese in my meals before (like every single time!!) and it is all expensive, plain food. go to the sojourner cafe.. they have some great vegan dishes and awesome vegan desserts. there is also spirit land bistro but that place is really ritzy

    I live in O.C and its getting easier to find Vegan restaurants. There might not be many but the ones that around here are pretty darn good. I also do not come in contact with many vegan people. So if anyone is local I may be able to show you around.
