Earth Day and more

*Sunday is Earth Day, and there are several celebrations in the area to mark the occasion. On Saturday, the 2nd Annual Piedmont Earth Day Fair will be held from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Winston-Salem, 4055 Robinhood Road. Check out the event brochure -- it looks like it will be a full day with lots of good information about ways to go green. There's also a big celebration in Salisbury at Catawba College. You can see the lineup of activities here. It's my hope that more people will start thinking about the earth and our effect on it every day of the year, not just on Earth Day.

If anybody knows of any other events in the area for Earth Day, or if you have a special way you're going to mark the day, please post and let us know!

*Harris Teeter has a great "buy-one, get-one-free" sale running right now on a lot of vegetarian frozen items -- Amy's and Moosewood entrees, Health Is Wealth munchies, Tofutti ice cream and Van's waffles. Curse my small freezer!

*Julie and some friends and I made a final pilgrimage to our beloved California Fresh Buffet last night. It will close on April 27 after seven years so that the mostly volunteers who run it can concentrate on other ways of serving the community. We're extremely sad about its closure. As a vegetarian friend commented, "There will never be another salad bar" like the wonderful one at CFB. It was always one of the most vegetarian-friendly restaurants in town.

This is the second big blow to the Winston-Salem dining scene in just a few months, following the closing of Lucky 32 in January. (I still mourn the loss of its mozzarella-and-portobello appetizer, which may have been my favorite dish on any menu in Winston-Salem.)
