About This Site

My name is Clarissa and I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in a city called Bellingham. I originally created this site in 2008 as a way to share information about vegan topics and vegan options at local restaurants. At that time, I wrote new posts on a weekly basis, but in 2016 I decided to change it from a blog to a website with some core restaurant information.

Over the last decade, Bellingham has grown substantially more vegan-friendly. I am so grateful to have so many wonderful local options for dining out with friends and family, or picking up takeout for cozy evenings at home.

While I remain a "vegan in Bellingham," I no longer have the passion, time, or commitment I once did to review and post regular updates about local restaurants. I have really enjoyed the time I spent creating this site, and all of the wonderful people I have met along the way. The vegan meet-ups were awesome, and realizing there was a community out there of both vegan and vegan-friendly people was really heartening. I am grateful to you all for your support, kind words, emails, and comments.

I hope to re-vamp and still post to this site occasionally, and I thank you for your patience and understanding. Please note that the information on this site may not be the most up-to-date, but I hope it may still be useful as a starting point nonetheless!
