Located in northwest DC, Comet Ping Pong is as fun as its name. There is a good beer selection, a delish green salad with marinated chickpeas, and gluten-free and vegan topping options for their hand-made pizza. As a fellow diner confirmed after tasting my vegan, gluten-free pizza, it doesn't actually taste like "pizza" - but the thrill is in going to a pizza place and actually getting to order a pizza along with everyone else. Service was casual and efficient, and the decor kooky but clean. I'm not sure what to make of the mirror-crusted cinder-block that hung as a disco "ball", but I liked it. Thanks for the vegan and gluten-free options. I'll be back!

    "The Year of the Vegan" is a diary of my challenges and triumphs during 2010 - a year in which I will not consume any animal products. This commitment is motivated by my disgust about the hidden and externalized environmental, social and societal  costs of our nation's food network. Join me considering what we eat, and why.

    This year is also a year of personal transitions - from graduate student and freelance writer living in rural southwestern Virginia to fully-employed DC resident.
