Here are all the SuperVegan blog posts categorized under Animal Rights.
-In case Halloveegan isn’t enough to fill your Saturday plate, there’s also an all you can eat Vegan buffet! The brunch, presented by Pop-Up Vegan Brunch Cafe, celebrates Dia de los Muertos and ten percent of all sales will be donated to Animal Media Rescue & Education (ARME). Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Here’s the menu.
-Another day, another celeb opens a restaurant … not quite! The Hollywood Reporter reports that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi (and Chrissie Hynde and Steve Bing) are opening a Vegan restaurant on Ventura Boulevard in the SFV, menu courtesy none other than Tal Ronnen. Guess we won’t have to drive to Vegas to eat Gardein anymore! Designer to the stars, Waldo Fernandez, will “create the space.”
UPDATE: According to EaterLA, the restaurant will open in January and serve Mediterranean foods.
-Vegans make for more TeeVee fodder. Anyone see this week’s episode of South Park? Can I call a Clam on this one, Guys? Pun intended.
Heya, Angelenos! Got plans this Saturday? Too bad, change ‘em! Head over to Halloveegan, L.A.’s Vegan Drinks, presented by ChicaVegan! Taking place at Verdugo Bar, which has an incredibly huge and well curated beer selection and full bar, there promises to be loads of vegan grub, tons of prizes and it all sounds ridiculous in the best possible way. What are you gonna wear?? LOTS of details after the jump:
I’m home sick with a sinus infection, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay in and miss all the fun (like Saturday’s Smorgasburg, which for the first time featured items from the Vegan Bodega). But thankfully Smorgasburg happens every Saturday, so you’ll have another chance to go next week, and the week after that.
Two other very cool events are happening Sunday, 10/23:
- Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals, which starts at 11am in Central Park. If you can’t walk, be sure to donate!
- The Vegan Fall Shop-Up, taking place at the Pine Box Rock Shop, from 12-5pm. Check out the artisanal tempeh, kale chips, hummus made in Brooklyn, farm-fresh veggies, stationery, soy candles, and more. The Vegan Bodega is making an appearance at the Shop-Up, too, so be sure to check them out!
Someone bring me a doggie bag!
Pamela Anderson recently attended a Vivienne Westwood show in London—in a meat market. And she’s been criticized for modeling for Westwood because the designer uses leather (though thankfully she dropped the fur).
So does this make Pam a pariah? Or is attending vegan events only preaching to the choir, missing an opportunity to possibly educate and ignoring the fact that, like it or not, we’re all part of the larger world?
I work at a fashion magazine, and before that I worked for a foodie publication (I barely survived the barbecue issue). I also help take care of my 89-year-old father, which includes ordering his groceries. He’s unabashedly not vegan, and that’s never going to change. Does that make me a sellout too?
