As a small ethical movement against the cruelty of our food production system.
Restaurants in Tacoma are increasingly open to vegan eating, and some even offer vegan options on their menus: Quickie Too, Marrow, and Cafe Brosseau are at the top of the list. Many other places such as The Social, Paesan, Primo Grill, Art House Cafe, Europa Bistro, etc., will offer a palatable vegan option if asked (Europa's pasta with olive and oil and garlic is heavenly). Also check out Laura's Bayview Bar and Grill (great views of the Bay), the Hub, and Abby's.
Running, hiking, traveling, reading, wine, writing, biking, collegial conversation, etc., but not all at the same time...
I was vegetarian for over ten years before making the switch to Vegan about five years ago. I've delighted in being included in the sublime refinement of the South Sound Vegans.
Thanks to all for joining in a raucous night celebrating many great victories! Thanks, too, to Cherish for the superb photos that captured the camaraderie of the evening.
