  1. This sign can be coming to a Dunkin' Donuts near you!

    This sign can be coming to a Dunkin’ Donuts near you!

    Following a SuperVegan post about the availability of soy milk for Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees to add to their menu, the wonderful Washington, DC-based grassroots group Compassion Over Killing chalks up another victory by convincing a local Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee to carry soy milk at his two stores.

    As previously reported, soy milk is currently available for Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee to order from their product list – most franchisees do not know that soy milk is available, so if you want soy milk at your local Dunkin’ Donuts, please ask the manager to get soy milk! You can also give them a little nudge online by sending them a brief note with info on your local store.

    Soy milk will be available starting as early as this Friday, April 25th at the Dunkin’ Donuts located in Takoma Park, MD at 6851 New Hampshire Ave. and in Hyattsville, MD at 2057 University Blvd.

    In 2004, COK was successful in convincing the now bustling Java Green to adopt an all-vegetarian menu and has since partnered with the restaurant to promote veggie-eating in creative promotions such as Vegan Days where the restaurant donates a percentage of sales to COK and media events that resulted in great stories like this one that aired on an NBC affiliate in Washington, DC. Erica Meier, COK’s director, tells us that they are working on ways to help promote the new soy milk offerings at their local Dunkin’ Donuts as well!

  2. Birdbath's banana-sesame-agave cake. Do these look like NYC's best vegan treats to you?!?! OMFG!

    Birdbath’s banana-sesame-agave cake. Do these look like NYC’s best vegan treats to you?!?! OMFG!

    • Time Out New York names the Chelsea location of Blossom “best vegetarian restaurant” in its 2008 Eat Out Awards. Other nominees: Candle 79, Caravan of Dreams, and Counter.
    • While I do agree with the New York mag folks on Gossip Girl , they must have been smoking something when they decided to make the uber-bizzare OMFG claim that Birdbath’s banana-sesame-agave cake is the city’s “best vegan treat” in its 2008 Best of New York issue back in March. Have they not had Danielle Konya’s VeganTreats’ new tiramisu, Sweet & Sara’s smores and toasted coconut marshmallows, Candle Cafe’s chocolate mousse pie, Pure Food & Wine’s ice cream sundae…to name a few off the top of my head?
    • New Yorkers celebrated this week with news of the pending arrival of DC’s Sticky Fingers Bakery in Brooklyn and pretty soon our brethren in our nation’s capital will be able to celebrate with finally getting Danielle Konya’s VeganTreats! The ever-lovely Ms. Konya was in DC last week meeting with various veggie restaurants and will soon start distributing her sweet goodness there!
    • Sweet & Sara just moved to a bigger marshmallow factory in Long Island City of Queens, NY. With the expansion, Sara Sohn’s vegan marshmallow empire now expands to Australia, Hawaii, and Whole Foods in Chicago!
  3. (It’s Pride! Of course I have to write about COK! Hmm…I mean, “C.O.K.”)

    Compassion Over Killing has rolled out VegAustin.com to save those in the Southern hipster capital from getting their angled hair all tangled up when they are searching for veg-friendly bites.

    And back at their home base and the nation’s capital, COK is rallying up votes for their first annual DC-Metro Best Vegetarian Restaurant contest on VegDC.com. But considering that DC votes don’t really matter, what’s with this whole voting business involving DC? Really, they could have just asked me! (My votes are: Soul Vegetarian, Yuan Fu, and Sunflower!)

    In other news…sadly, WrapWorks on Dupont Circle in DC has closed. Their Green Party Wrap (grilled veggies and mango salsa with perfectly seasoned rice) and Lambada Colada (think pina colada with strawberries, raspberries, and mangos added for extra-awesomeness) were my absolute favs. I used to go to WrapWorks every time I’m down in DC. Where oh where will I go now? I miss you so much!!

  4. A few months ago, I got really, really sick of posting about Chinese raccoon dogs and all the terrible department stores their fur was showing up in. Thankfully, two New York legislators have introduced a bill to ban the sale of raccoon dog fur in the state. “Unfortunately, we can’t outlaw the inhumane treatment of these animals in China, but with the legislation I have introduced in the Assembly, we can at least ensure that New York State plays no part in this deplorable practice,” said Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal. There’s also a bill in front of the House Ways and Means Committee in Washington to do the same thing; that one would also require the labeling of all fur items, including those valued at less than $150 (which are exempt from labeling by current law).

    I hope the only time I ever post about raccoon dogs again is to tell you that this bill passed. And when they inevitably show up in Felix’s cute video collection. (Thanks, Pierre, for the tip.)
