Cows come and cows go, but the vegans around Ann Arbor last forever. Nowhere is this better exemplified than Jazzy Veggie. The popular vegan-style restaurant celebrates its three-year anniversary on Tuesday, November 15 by handing out free samples, and will add a free side to any burger, sandwich or wrap. An alternative to meat-heavy menus and unpalatable veggie options, Jazzy Veggie has a unique, healthy cuisine that is delicious and presentable. Owner Andy Pullela says "We wanted to offer a broad menu of vegan selections in a fast casual setting to grab a quick bite for lunch without straining the wallet, unlike typical vegetarian restaurants which are usually fancy and expensive." With an expanded menu including new burgers and salads, the restaurant offers vegan takes on popular comfort foods, while incorporating hot and zesty flavors in unexpected ways. "Our krab cakes and potstickers are extremely popular.  Our Spanish rice is the best in town," Pulella boasts. Even ardent meat lovers may convert after sampling their Spicy Black Bean Burger. Add in a catering service, free meals for kids (6 and under) Mondays thru Wednesdays and it’s easy to see why Jazzy Veggie has flourished.

Tuesday, November 15. Open Monday-Saturday, 11am-9pm; Sunday, Noon-5pm. 108 S. Main St. 734-222-0203. jazzyveggie.com

A Physician’s Perspective on Legalized Cannabis

On Tuesday, November 6th, Michigan became the 10th state to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Ten years ago, we had become the 13th state to legalize Cannabis for medical use. I voted for the medical cannabis law years ago because, in my view, cannabis is not a dangerous product, and too many people were being imprisoned for its use. At that time, however, I did not subscribe to the argument that there were legitimate medical uses for cannabis. How things have changed.
