I've wanted to compile this list for a while and here it is! A list of everywhere (outside of the Chicago metro area) that we (Dan and I) visited (and ate) in 2011! Most of these were for seitan-related work, but a few also included yoga-teaching work.
Minneapolis/St Paul (driving from Chicago, so we stopped at a number of co-ops along the way there and back including a stop in Madison, WI)
Detroit, MI (Veg MI Fest)
Los Angeles, CA
San Francisco, CA (drove up from LA... amazing!)
Oregon, IL (Yoga and Vegan Cooking Retreat)
Madison, WI (Mad City Veg Fest)
Madison, WI (Willy Street Co-op Member Party)
Lake Geneva, WI (Yoga Journal Conference to practice with my teacher, Dharma)
Portland, OR (Vegan Iron Chef)
Portland, OR (Vida Vegan Con)
Portland, OR (VegFest)
Dallas, TX (TX State Veggie Fair)
2012 is already promising to be equally exciting. In the first 6 months we are slated to visit Los Angeles, India, Dallas, Detroit, New Orleans, and Portland! I hope to find many more Vegan Things I Like on these upcoming adventures!
