    Great info, as always Ashley! I didn’t realize your boyfriend went. That was cool. Or maybe you brought back a leftover goody box for him.

    Wow you found some seriously good spots, I am very sorry I missed out on vegan gelato – never had it and am so curious! I really want the fries with seitan bacon and cheese – post diet of coure, but I want them!

      I did but I missed so many too! The fries were amazing! How is the diet going!?

      I know I missed several! I was running around like a crazy woman trying to fit it all in haha. I’ll definitely be back again and will definitely check out the Brew Pub’s options! 🙂

  3. I have felt similarly about the Midwest but I think the hipster community helps Influence the vegan restaurants! Sounds like you are very well!
