  1. speakersOn Saturday, September 21st the Educating for a Just, Peaceful and Sustainable Future conference will be held at NYU’s Kimmel Center. The day-long event, which aims to highlight ” …the power and promise of humane education as a key to fostering a generation of solutionaries committed to environmental preservation, animal welfare and human rights,” lasts from 8:45am until 5pm and will feature keynotes from Dr. Jane Goodall, Arun Gandhi (grandson of Mahatma), and Zoe Weil, co-founder of the Institute for Humane Education. Other speakers include HEART (Human Education Advocates Reaching Teachers) director Meena Alagappan, Nancy Barr, IFAW’s (International Fund for Animal Welfare) program director, among many others. The conference schedule also includes applied humane education workshops, networking sessions and an International Day of Peace parade.

    Registration is $75 ($25 for students) until August 1st, when the price jumps to $95 ($35 for students). Financial assistance is available to help offset the cost for those who need it. There’s an optional evening reception after the conference, which can be attended for an extra $30. Additionally, the reception is open to those who don’t attend the conference if you can’t commit to a full day of events but still want to meet the speakers and mingle with like-minded people.

  2. db_potluck

    Chloé Jo Davis of Girlie Girl Army, Joshua Katcher of The Discerning Brute/Brave Gentleman, Leanne Mai-Ly Hilgart of Vaute Couture, and Jeremy Davis of Craft & Valor are hosting a vegan potluck in Central Park on Saturday. They will be better dressed than you! (Even Joshua, despite being topless.) That’s OK–go anyway.

    [We] were recently making plans to meet in Central Park for an afternoon of snacking and kiki-ing, as we often do, and we had a revelation.  What if we just go on and invite everyone.  Not just our cliques and friends, but anyone who wants to come.  Vegan or not.  Come and partake in an energetically on point late morning/ early afternoon big bit of summer hang-age where you can meet some people who are totally on your level and play in the grass with no entry fee or silly sign ups.  Maybe you’ll rock your best summer threads and snap an Instagram editorial. Maybe you want to act like a gyrating hippie. Maybe you’ll shmooze new business, maybe your kid will make a friend, maybe you’ll fall asleep after stuffing yourself silly.

    I can’t make it myself, as I will be at a different (private) vegan picnic in a different park. But this looks awesome and I hope you all go.


  3. So last night and into this morning, the vegan equivalent of the Amy’s Baking Co. Facebook meltdown went down between Jay Astafa and the two current owners of 3 Brothers Pizza Cafe’s Rockville Centre location. Of course, nothing can top the ridiculousness of Amy’s Baking Co., and I’m happy to say no one in the vegan community has yet to publicly act like such a hot mess on social media (that I’m aware of), but this incident was certainly embarrassing for everyone involved.

    For those who are unfamiliar with Jay and 3 Brothers, 20-year-old Jay Astafa is quickly establishing himself  as a phenomenal vegan chef. He created the excellent vegan menu at 3 Brothers Pizza Cafe in Rockville Centre, NY, which was started by his father and has since changed ownership. Jay recently opened up a second 3 Brothers location in Farmingdale and is no longer involved with the original location. He also hosted a pop-up dinner earlier this month in NYC, called Jay Kitchen, and has expressed interest in expanding it to a full-service restaurant in the city. I know nothing about the new 3 Bros RVC owners, and couldn’t find much about the sale online.

    I’ll pause here to say that if you haven’t eaten at 3 Bros, it’s amazing. I went to the Rockville Centre location last year, when Jay’s family still owned it, and it was probably one of the best vegan eating experiences I’ve had in the NYC area. Jay Astafa and 3 Brother’s are a staple in the Long Island vegan community, and the restaurant’s vegan menu, when I tried it, was exceptional. They even served a complimentary bread basket with Earth Balance. Free Earth Balance. The restaurant also offered plenty of gluten free options. I have yet to go back since the Rockville Centre location changed hands, nor have I tried the Farmingdale restaurant.

    The Facebook meltdown that occurred last night has since been taken down, but luckily I took some screen caps on my phone. I’ve pasted them below, with commentary. Please note that I didn’t grab shots of the entire incident, only parts of it.

  5. vegancookoff

    The second Vegan Cook-Off, taking place Sunday, June 2 at 2pm at The Bell House in Brooklyn and presented by The Skint (a website run by a vegan who wishes to remain anonymous), has extended their deadline for competitor applications to Tuesday, May 28. The tasty theme this time around is Hors d’Oeuvres and the competition is open to everyday cooks brave enough to prepare vegan finger foods for 250+ attendees. To help decide whose tapas reign supreme, judges Terry Hope Romero, Blossom Restaurant Managing Partner Michael Parkin, and carnivore and BBQ master Dan Delaney will crown the top 3 dishes. Attendees will also help with the judging by selecting three People’s Choice winners. The event will be hosted by Brooklyn’s own vegan sideshow performer, Bobby Phobia.

    Think you’ve got the chops to take home the $250 cash prize? Fill out an entry form. Are you better at eating than cooking? Tickets are still available, but are very close to selling out, so if you want to attend, don’t sleep on it.
