Tickets sold out super-fast, and I was one of the lucky 200 or so that is attending this year's (the first of it's kind) event! I'm so very excited to meet so many of the people who I chat with on Facebook, Twitter and those whose cookbooks I memorize or photography skills I idolize. So much to learn and absorb! I'm SO psyched!! It's gonna be FUN!!
So, though things don't officially "start" until tomorrow, tonight there was a "Meet and Greet", along with a screening of "Vegucated", a movie about three people who change their lives when they go vegan, (of course!).
I didn't go to these pre-conference activities, (though by all reports these events were a blast!!) but spent the day playing "Vacationing-Vegan-Tourist" around Portland with my friend (and fellow conference attendee) Shaun.
I could drink this gravy, it's that good. And that's saying a LOT coming from me, as I pretty much own the vegan gravy world.
Then, today (after I slept like a dead person until 1:30 PM - vacation much?) we hit up my second-favorite Portland spot, Hungry Tiger Two. HT2 has an equally impressive run-down of classic comfort-food favorites (and their gravy is tasty, and quite edible, though not my favorite).
Shaun and I sat at the table and did the math... "How much could we spend and NOT look like complete vegan-gluttons?" Heehee.
Shaun also ordered their tofu "Chicken and Waffle" lunch and we both thought the tofu and waffle were extremely good. (Almost as good as my waffles, which again, is saying a LOT!).
