Are you vegan, vegetarian or just curious?

I turned semi-vegetarian during college in the late 1980s for taste bud-related reasons, having grown dissatisfied with the cafeteria's animal-flesh entrees. I turned vegetarian in 1991 for health reasons; I turned vegan in 1999 for health reasons.

What is your favorite local vegan-friendly restaurant?

My name is Dave Matthews. No relation. I turned vegetarian in 1991 and vegan in 1999. I write, draw, and paint. I have a straw-hatted, wire-rimmed coconut orangutan sitting atop my bookcase.
