Honestly, where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday that CH and I were planning our big Toronto trip, and I was searching for fantastic vegan restaurants to visit, and lots of cool sites to see. Back then, I was even brimming with lofty ideas about doing a mega-travel-post upon our return...
Yea, looks like that plan hasn't been realized yet. But, I do have an excuse, as any good blogger should.
You see, I have a job now, and it keeps me very busy. Well, a "sort of" job, which is what I call it since it's not like I'm getting paid or anything. (Although there is a possibility of that - if we win the case I'm working on, or it settles.) Until then, however, I must simply toil away, satisfied with the fact that I'm penny-less, but still continuing to follow a dream. (Never mind that my dream has slightly shifted away from working as a Public Defender, to successfully suing a particular city and the police officers who clearly violated our client's constitutional and civil rights, but I digress...)
Anyway, the real reason I'm publishing this post is to let all of you know about Chicago's VeganMania - a very cool-sounding vegan event that's taking place tomorrow, in the city. I heard about it a couple of weeks ago, and kept forgetting to post something (my sort-of job gets in the way of everything!), so I sincerely apologize for the late notice. However, I figured it's better late than never, so here's the info:
Chicago VeganMania takes place on Saturday, Oct. 10, 2009.
It will be held at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse (1419 W. Blackhawk), from 10am - 5pm.
A variety of speakers and vegan-related companies are scheduled to attend, and there will be live music/entertainment as well. Furthermore - in what is perhaps the best reason to go - there will be 12 different vegan food vendors there, passing out samples!
Oh, and I've saved the best for last... this event is FREE!
Now, quick - hop on over to Chicago VeganMania's website and check out the details for yourself. And don't forget to send me an email/leave me a comment if you plan to be there, I'd love to say hello!
