There will be more than 100 musical acts across eight cities, including Madonna, Bon Jovi, The Police, Sheryl Crow, Kelly Clarkson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kanye West, Melissa Etheridge, John Mayer, Faith Hill, Shakira and the Black Eyed Peas.

Hi Cassandra and Julie,

I discovered your blog when I searched the Live Earth Concerts in NC--didn't know anything about the event until 8 pm that night, what's up with that???

Anyway, I just wanted to say I really like the tone of your site, that vegetarian choices are a rich part of a healthy lifestyle/diet. I remember when I moved to Winston-Salem I suggested a vegetarian theme for a group dinner with five couples. Three of the five women snuck some meat into their veggie entrees so the "men" wouldn't go away hungry. I think we've come a long way since then!

Thanks for offering a great perspective on veggie dining in WS!

Thanks for the comment, Cornelia! I'm afraid that some still have the perception that veggie food can't be filling, especially for the "menfolk." But that is changing some, and we're doing what we can to help change it more!
