Dilute! Dilute! OK!

It's been a busy month - for the first time in years, I forgot to celebrate favorite author H.P. Lovecraft's birthday on Aug. 20 - and things haven’t slowed down yet. And fall is such a whirl of worthy events. Off the top of my head, I can think of nearly half a dozen vegetarian-friendly events coming up in the next month or so … Maybe if I don't have time to make it to these, you can -

Apple Festival, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, at Bethabara Park, Winston-Salem. It's not strictly a vegetarian event, but I always enjoy this annual celebration of one of the highlights of the fall harvest. You can enjoy music and crafts at the festival as well.

Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, in Charlottesville, Va. Their Web site says they draw 100 exhibitors and 6,000 visitors each year. One of these days, I'm going to make that road-trip and check this one out!

Very Vegetarian Society meeting, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, at Miller Park Recreation Center. This meeting will feature Dinner and a Movie. The society will have its usual vegan potluck dinner, and view a screening of Power Shift, about alternative, sustainable energy.

Boston Vegetarian Food Festival, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, Boston, Mass. OK, this is a far-afield dream. But, wouldn't Boston in the fall be a nice place to be?

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox, 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, The Light Factory, Charlotte. This film is described as capturing "four generations of soapmakers and the inspiring legacy of the counterculture’s favorite cleaning product." You can't (well, shouldn't) eat it, but you can do nearly everything else with this vegan-friendly cleaning product. And reading the blurbs on the bottle is great fun (and inspired the title of this post).

Readers, what events are you looking forward to this fall?

"Dr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox" is really good if you're at all familiar with the soap. You should probably at least look at a bottle before you see the movie. My wife and I screened the movie for Riverrun last year. (I don't think Riverrun actually showed the movie.)

Also, on a separate note--the compassionate living festival is coming to Raleigh the first weekend of October.
