Asheville NC Vegfest!
YOU should be there! I am helping to organize a little, so anyone who is interested in tabling, having a booth, or speaking can PM me and I can put you in touch with the right people.
I might even let you shack up with me if you come to this!!!
When we got there, I wished I had asked for a recommendation... but then we found Chai Pani. WHOA.
That is some good, good street eats. I will recreate their okra fries some day, even if it kills me! Seriously - why don't we all live in Asheville, again?
