This is great! I'll have to try them for sure - I had no idea they were serving better quality stuff. yum!

I ride DART and wait at Mockingbird station for trains and/or buses fairly often. Knowing this business + the more salacious parts of its attracted crowd will be just around the corner makes me feel really uncomfortable, even unsafe.
I'm really not that prudish, am I?

"McClatchey’s assessment is backed up by several studies, most notably one from Canada that shows consumers must hold onto a fake tree for 20 years before it equals the environmental impact of a real tree. "
But most people do not just buy one real tree. They buy one real tree each year. The math comes out a little differently if you think about it that way.

I miss the Flying Tomato and Chopsticks in their old location. I guess that dates me.

I may be the only one thinking this, but few things would drive me away from Heritage Village more quickly than a bunch of modern food trucks.
It's not that I don't like food trucks. I do. I actually really love food trucks.
But I love history and architecture and the feeling of stepping into the past when I go to Heritage Village even more, and few things would ruin a trip out there more than food trucks spewing diesel fumes in the midst of my favorite part of the park.
Obviously others liked the food trucks a lot. I'd probably only be satisfied if they were vintage milk trucks, passing out day-old unpasteurized dairy in glass bottles.

Thanks for sharing the link - I scoured the internet for a long time and could never find that, even called a few numbers listed elsewhere and nobody else could get me their either. Definitely gonna bookmark it!

Thanks for posting this. Any chance you can share where you're getting the Dallas info from - if the city has it posted somewhere? Pegasus News is by far the best source I've found for getting this information. Hope it will keep being updated throughout the summer.

I am about 95% raw and have enjoyed going to Bliss, mostly to gather ideas of how to make my own stuff.
But, I'll admit, I've been reading the writing on the wall for some time. First, it was reading an article in the Observer about how some guy - the original co-owner, perhaps? - walked out on the restaurant because he disagreed with some things going on there. Mainly the water. At least that's what Buzz had to say about it.
Then, we heard from some friends that the owner had a bad reputation at Central Market, where she was purchasing some of the produce that she passed off as organic. This was a year ago or so.
So lately? We've seen a lot of turnover, especially these past few weeks. And we've seen employees take smoke breaks and not wash their hands when coming back into the kitchen.
But for some reason, the things that have always bugged me most about the place...
...what's up with the styrofoam and plastic to-go containers? this movement is supposed to be about doing things for the environment, at least in part. Or so I thought... ...and what's up with the cheap-o bleached TP in the bathroom? And soft soap. <i>soft soap?!?</i> That was my first big hint that something was really off about the place. What kind of healthy foods place uses soft soap? Right now they have Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day, which is a bit better, i suppose, but still laden with synthetic fragrances (do some online research; Mrs. Meyer's is just as bad as Bliss as far as presentation goes. It's still better than some of the alternatives, but it is NOT a natural cleaner).
Anyway, a shout out to my homeboy <b>Clay213</b>!!1!1!!, ya big ole' carnivore, you. Let's get together at your ranch again and make kale smoothies or something. I know it didn't go over so well last time, especially after that crazy hippie came over and read you poetry (man you were alllll over her!) but we can try again. I know your health is important to you. You want to be strong and virile enough to comment when we bring out the next string of raw vegan rants, don't you?
