Well, not really. But almost famous! Check out the March/April 08 issue of VegNews and look for my byline in the VegEscapes section. Here's what the cover looks like:
I wrote about vegan dining options in Memphis, and believe it or not, there are actually quite a few. Granted, we have no totally vegan restaurants. And that sucks. But many places have a couple of veg menu items. Sometimes you gotta ask to have cheese or mayo left off. Our only real vegetarian restaurant, Square Foods, closed last month due to lack of business...sigh. Unfortunately, I believe Square Foods made it into the VegNews story. By the time I found out it was closing, it would have been past press time.
Anyhow, the story names 10 or so vegan-friendly Memphis dining and entertainment options. To be honest, I haven't even seen an issue. Wild Oats doesn't have the new issue in yet, and though VegNews has assured me that my copy is in the mail, it has yet to arrive. I can't wait to see it laid out with pictures!
For a more complete list of veg dining options in Memphis, go to the Food Awareness (our local vegetarian society) website. There's a link on the left to a mini-restaurant guide I compiled last year. It probably needs to be updated with new restaurants, and a few (like Square Foods) need to be removed. But much of it remains current.
