hynde22.jpg Pretenders frontwoman and Ohio native Chrissie Hynde has announced this week she will be opening an upscale vegetarian restaurant in her hometown of Akron. Construction should begin soon, and the name has been revealed to be VegeTerranean, blending the Mediterranean and vegetarian food that will be served, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. A spokesman said “the menu will be vegetarian — no meat — but won’t be vegan, which would mean serving no animal-based products such as cheese, eggs or other dairy. Plans are to hire an executive chef specifically trained in vegetarian cuisine.”

The opening of the restaurant is on target for September 15th, to tie in with the Crossing Water Music and Arts Festival, which will raise funds for the Akron Civic Theatre. The article continued “because of Hynde’s involvement with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), the organization has committed to supporting VegeTerranean — channeling other celebrity supporters to Akron for the grand opening.” Even though Hynde lives in England, she will be making an appearance as well as give an acoustic concert at VegeTerranean’s opening, along with other Akron natives The Black Keys and possibly Devo. Doesn’t sound too ‘middle of the road’ if you know what I mean…
