What's up everyone, I'm new to this forum but definitely not new to raw. I've been raw for over a decade now and even have a restaurant in New York's Lower East Side called Quintessence. For those of you near me stop by and say hello!! Very cool website by the way, awesome to be a part of it.
By the way, not trying to be front or anything but I do raw food events every now and then and have one coming up at the end of this month. It will be a completely free dinner and lecture on raw food preparation, so if you're in the area and not busy or just want to maybe learn some things about going raw please stop by! It will be taking place on October 29th and again on the 30th. All that's needed to participate is stop by my website and register (so I know how many participants there are). It's http://www.rawchefdan.com/free-event-oct.html 
Anyway, good to be part of this forum (be nice to me. please.) and hopefully I'll have the chance to meet some of you cool people at one of my events.
