Vegetarian Restaurant Week 2008

So last night was the kick-off event for vegetarian restaurant week. And I forgot my camera :( I met a natural hair stylist, also Sisterlocks trainee who offered to hook me and my natural friend up. There were also lots of stunning skinny people who were Afrocentric regardless of their particular race or sexual orientation. It was a people watcher's festival!

The food was good. We snacked on some wheat gluten/veggie kabobs and salad.

Tea was served in Styrofoam cups ( boo! I wish they were Eco friendly) in bags and stems similar to this:There was a tea educator who gave a presentation and the event was hosted in the Black Owned, Grounds Coffeehouse in the historic West End of Atlanta. The tea lover recommended this product:

It is dishwasher safe, glass, and microwave friendly. The tea can be infused in one mug. It has a lid so that you can seal it. I found it on Theresa Bey, the tea educator, reportedly contributes to the site.
