    Brooklyn vegans are gearing up for another Vegan Shop-Up this Saturday, July 13th at Pine Box Rock Shop in Bushwick from Noon – 6pm. Get your post-brunch shopping on, enjoy a bloody mary or three and spend your hard earned cash on food, eco-friendly clothing, handbags, body care and much more. Plus, admission is free! The event gets busy fast and space is tight, so arrive early. Just hop on the L train to Morgan Ave.

    Whoever makes these Vegan Shop-Up flyers has been killing it recently. Look at that funky lettuce! It totally doesn’t have to worry about sharks.

  2. mfahotdogWhen I was 3, my mom tried to coax me into eating a hot dog by slicing it up and creating a circle of cruel, gross chemical-y death around a glob of ketchup in the middle of my plate. “They’re Indians around a campfire,” she told me. I threw the biggest tantrum a 3-year-old can manage (which is pretty darn big), and haven’t eaten a hot dog of the meat variety since. While veggie dogs are a different story, I still maintain that hot dogs are one of the most vile “foods” in existence, and can’t fathom why anyone would want to eat as many as they can in ten minutes, but I guess it’s the American way…or something.

    So, if you’re feeling more in the mood for a protest than patriotic this 4th of July, consider joining Mercy For Animals in protesting the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest in Coney Island. Signs, banners and leaflets will be provided and MFA’s inflatable hot dog puppy (pictured) will make an appearance. The group will meet on the corner of Stillwell Ave. and W. 16th Street at 10:30am. MFA requests that attendees dress “professionally” as there will be media coverage.

    When it comes to being vegan in Coney Island, I don’t have to tell you that the dining options are limited to pretty much french fries. There’s no dining establishment in Coney Island’s amusement district that caters to vegans, and when I inquired about veggie dog options with a member of Luna Park‘s staff, I was told that anywhere in Luna Park that sells hot dogs sports a Nathan’s logo. However, when it comes to vegan products of the non-food variety in Coney, Lola Star is doing her part to minimize cruelty. The boutique owner recently switched the sunscreen her stores sell to a brand that doesn’t test on animals and will soon be offering cruelty-free nail polish. And if you’re joining MFA in their protest on Thursday, you just might need some sunscreen!

    Do you have any vegan tips for visiting Coney Island? Feel free to share!

  3. bunnaFor three days, from June 19th through the 21st, Bunna Cafe will take over Little Skips, a cafe in Bushwick, to bring their full (mostly vegan) Ethiopian restaurant experience to North Brooklyn. A few weeks ago Bunna provided food for the Farmraiser benefit at Dun-Well Doughnuts and tomorrow they’ll be making an appearance at the Vegan Shop-Up in Bushwick, but apparently the eatery isn’t finished with the neighborhood just yet.

    They’ll be providing food, drink and music, with dinner prices starting at $10. They don’t have their menu for this specific event listed yet, but you can browse their full menu to get an idea of what they have to offer. No reservations are required and patrons will be served on a first come, first served basis. They also have a Facebook event, if you’re into that.

    The great thing about pop-ups is that they’re usually cheap and they have the flexibility of changing things up, but you never know when they’ll show up next, so get while the gettin’s good! Or, just grab some of Bunna’s Ethiopian eats tomorrow at the Vegan Pop-Up from 12-6pm at Pine Box Rock Shop. Nom!

  4. VSUjune15web (1)The Brooklyn Vegan Shop-Up we all know and love returns June 15th from 12pm – 6pm. The event will once again be held at Pine Box Rock Shop, NYC’s only all-vegan bar, for another day of food, drink and vegan wares you might not need, but just can’t resist.

    If you’ve never been to Vegan Shop-Up, it’s basically a little vegan oasis in the middle of Bushwick. Pine Box becomes backed with dozens of cruelty-free vendors and filled with people squeezing by one another to sample items from new and up-and-coming companies that don’t have physical storefronts. It’s a lot of fun, but can get pretty crowded, so I’d suggest arriving early, especially because vendors tend to sell out during the event.

    Some of my favorite vendors on the current Vegan Shop-Up list inclue Gone Pie (the brownies!), Meow Meow Tweet (soap and candles), Kitty Jones (cat toys), and Alchemy Creamery, which makes yummy gourmet push pops that I tried for the first time at The Seed.

    The bottle of sunscreen you bought two years ago is expired, your roommate used up the last of your soap, and don’t you deserve a cupcake? See you June 15th!

  5. summerpopupVegan fashion line VauteCouture‘s summer sample sale starts today! Lasting through June 15th, the appointment-only Pop-Up Shop in Brooklyn will offer 25% off everything, including new seasonal items, as well as deep discounts on winter clothing.
