vegan Portland, Or Review....

I saw this on www.happycow.net.
This website is so perfect for finding vegan places to visit in your city or when you travel.
check out this review by a user who went to Portland....

Subject: 'Vegan Mecca, The Greatest Vegan Trip Ever!'
Now granted I'm half way into my Portland Adventure, but I can't help but share the heaven I have discovered with everyone. Pretty much the whole place is vegan. They ride their bikes to vegan bars, vegan grocery stores, vegan breakfast, vegan lunch, vegan dinner, vegan bakeries. Every corner has an awesome vegan place. I can see why so many vegans are moving here like its the mother land or something. I don't know even where to start. Portland is such a cool and beautiful town. Its divided into 4 parts really - NE NW SE SW and once you figure that out you can find everything EASY. Addresses will be like NE Alberta St, so you know you need to cross the river and head north. The highlight of my trip has been Casa Diablo's vegan burger. Its off the chart, like the BK Whopper only better. Everything else about that place is awesome if you don't have a stick up your arse. But Sweetpea for Sunday Brunch, Nutshell for a nice diner, the Tube/Bye and Bye for vegan boozing, Red and Black Cafe and Backspace for vegan music, it just goes on and on and on and they have these amazing Food Carts... Watch out, you'll def not fit in your pants by the time you leave here! Better join them on the bikes!



What a cool idea!!!!!!!!!.........
Should we change the name of fishes???

Would people think twice about ordering fish sticks if they were called sea kitten sticks? Would sea kitten soufflé be a hot seller at the local seafood restaurant? Does fillet o' sea kitten sound even remotely appetizing? Learn more about the new campaign to save fish by changing their name.

Many people have never stopped to think about it, but sea kittens are smart, interesting animals with their own unique personalities—just like the dogs and cats that we share our homes with. Did you know that sea kittens can learn to avoid nets by watching other sea kittens in their group and that they can recognize individual "shoal mates"? Some sea kittens gather information by eavesdropping on others, and some—such as a type of South African sea kittens that lays eggs on leaves so that they can be carried to a safe place—even use tools.
