Christian’s in Charlottesville Virginia’s Downtown Walking Mall – Vegan Pizza Just Doesn’t Get Better Than This!
This is a post that is long overdue. In June of this year we attended the Richmond Vegetarian Festival and stayed in neighboring Charlottesville at a homey Air B&B where our dogs were welcomed. After the festival we arrived back at out lodging, tired and hungry. We sought out the quickest solution for a vegan meal. Calling around to various pizza establishments, we finally settled on Christian’s in downtown Charlottesville. Located in the walking mall it was a barely over a mile from where we were staying, at Fairhaven Guesthouse, located just minutes from downtown. (more…)
It’s that time once again to make the long anticipated trek to the Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival, held in Lee Park, just one block off the historic downtown mall in Charlottesville, from 11am-5pm. It is shaping up to be a stellar event and the weather forecast looks promising!
Enjoy live entertainment throughout the day while sampling some of the best vegan and vegetarian food in the area. Vendors showcasing animal friendly products, rescue organizations, fitness organizations and more will be available for your perusal.
Canadian artist, Chantal Poulin, is on a mission. Driven by her passionate love for animals, Chantal creates huge, in-your-face paintings she hopes will not only fill the room with her evocative images but will fill your heart with empathy for the vulnerable animals she depicts.
My paintings are large because I want to give them the space they deserve. If I paint small it is just another animal painting.

I’ve received a lot of requests to demonstrate how to cut a mango. This is not the only way to accomplish this feat, but it’s the way I do it. Try it and see what you think.
Today was my best friend’s birthday so we went out to dinner to celebrate at the Mossfire Grill. The food here is outstanding and one of the reasons is because this enterprise is a farm to table restaurant.
For those of us who are not carnivores they offer dishes that include tempeh and tofu. The Mossfire Grill has a Southwest flair to their offerings and is located in the community of Riverside in Jacksonville. The specific area is called Five Points and the restaurant is a short walk from the five points intersection in the Riverside area of Jacksonville.
