  1. Happy New Year, Super Vegans!

    The LA SV HQ packed-up the ol’ Prius and headed north for the holidays. We ate a lot of truly delicious things along the way. Here’s our foodiary:

    First stop was Sunnyvale, CA. We celefeasted at Great Vegi Land, whose owner stayed open late just for us, so we ordered half the menu! This is the kind of vegan restaurant that also abstains from onions and garlic, two of my favorite things:

    great vegi land

    Top row: Hot & Sour Soup, Tofu Clay Pot, Mao Pao Tofu With “Fish”
    Bottom row: Dry Salted String Beans, Veggie Beef With Black Pepper Sauce, Kung Pao Veggie Chicken

    We sandwich’d at Ike’s and then tweeted with the man himself about getting a location for ourselves in LA:


    Vegan Captain Kirk, Vegan Pilgrim, Vegan Chocolate Chili Banana Cookie From Cake Monkey

    We ate until all the food was gone at Merit Vegetarian, my fav:


    Spicy Delight, Mocha Chocolate Cake, Strawberry Cheese Cake, and Vietnamese Crepe

    We left Sunnyvale and continued north to Hiouchi, where the food paled in comparison to the trees. We went on a hike through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park and found Grove Of The Titans, a secret trove of trees the size of skyscrapers.We actually had a couple other dishes, but they were so good I forgot to photograph them!


    That’s SV mascot Argon, a XL dog.

  2. When I first started thumbing through the pages of David Stowell and George Black’s The Veganopolis Cookbook: A Manual for Great Vegan Cooking, I was excited. The 70 recipes, taken from those served at Stowell and Black’s former restaurant, the Veganopolis Cafeteria, take you on a culinary tour of the world: Ardennes-Style Vegan Scalloped Potatoes, African Yam and Peanut Soup With Fresh Ginger, Blackened Tofu Etoufée, Stuffed Paisano Roast, Moroccan Vegetable Tagine With Preserved Lemon and Almonds, Moussaka, and Vegan Coq au Vin. If that doesn’t whet your appetite, there’s more: City Cinnamon Pecan Rolls, Stuffed Baby Pumpkins, Butter Bean and Walnut Chorizo, Broiled Sesame Ginger Tofu Sandwich, Roadhouse Vegan Burgers… I could go on.

  3. Vegan bloggers, UNITE! And get ready to tippity type away with joy this weekend, August 26-28, at the first annual and *sold out* Vida Vegan Conference! A vegan blogging buffet where workshops, panels, speakers, and special events are up for grabs, and I am going to absolutely engorge myself! Figuratively. But also literally! Because it’s in Portland, and I’ve never been there, which means I have to taste the whole city. Lick the sidewalks and such. Mmmm.

    In addition to the above mentioned conference-y stuff, there will be goings-on a-plenty: a sneak preview of Vegucated Thursday night followed by a post-screening Q&A with director and creator Marisa Miller Wolfson; a VegNews-sponsored cupcake reception Friday; and the Galarama, a fancy shmancy party and silent auction to benefit Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, on Saturday. (The Galarama is open to the public, so bring your friends! Con attendees’ admission is included with Con tickets; everyone else can still buy tickets here.) For a full schedule, check the con’s fantabulous agenda.

    Oh, and hey, is that my name on the list of speakers? Why yes it is! Jason Das and I are attending as speakers on the Travel, Group & Community Blogging, and Dating & Mating panels with a bunch of other super cool vegans. We will try our very best to bring you first-hand accounts from the Con, but if we don’t, we know you’ll look at that schedule and understand.

    Vida Vegan’s organizers told me how y’all at home can catch a glimpse of the conference (and watch your loving SuperVegans!), and shared a few other helpful tips for conference-goers and admirers alike.

    SuperVegan: How can people at home follow the conference?

    Vida Vegan Con: LiveStream, Vida Vegan Blog, Facebook, and Twitter. And we’ve heard rumors of some our attendees liveblogging. We’ll be sure to point you in their direction.

    SV: I want to attend every single session, but my clones are busy this weekend. Will the classes and lectures be recorded for us to view when we get home?

    VVC: As a first-year conference, we won’t be able to stream and record every single class offered, but we’ll happily link to all recordings posted by attendees. And check our Livestream for select classes – some total, some partial.

    SV: Is there one item every attendee should pack? I’ve never been to Portland — or a blogging conference!

    VVC: Look for a blog post up on our site soon! Of course, for a vegan blogger’s convention in Portland, there are a few necessary things–a camera (don’t forget your charger!), layers (rain knows no boundaries here, though it is supposed to be nice), and an extra bag to take home all your swag.

    SV: There’s a wonderful list of donors supplying auction items for the Galarama Saturday night. Can you give us a taste of what we’ll be bidding on?

    VVC: So many generous folks are coming forward to help support Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary–more stuff shows up every day! We’ve got a Shiraleah Amelie satchel from Alternative Outfitters, some handcrafted items from Kittee Berns, Panda With Cookie, and Late to the Revolution–plus gift certificates, books, wine, and a ticket to Vida Vegan Con 2013!

  5. Let Live Conference Logo

    The Let Live Conference 2010 will be held at Portland State University in Portland, OR, from June 25th to June 27th!

    Guess what you’re doing the weekend of June 25-27? You’re going to Portland, OR, for the Let Live Conference! You must be so stoked!

    Let Live sets itself apart from other animal rights conferences because of the über practical nature of its panels and, of course, its unbeatable location. Registration is a suggested donation of only $15. (That’s right, a suggested donation.) Register early since space is limited!

    Two of the Let Live organizers, Josh Hooten (Herbivore Clothing Company) and Chad Miller (Food Fight Grocery), answered our most pressing Let Live-related questions:

    SuperVegan: What do you most hope folks will gain by attending Let Live 2010?

    Let Live: There are three main things we hope Let Live does for attendees:

    1. We hope people go home with practical skills they can use to make a difference for animals. This can be anything from how to better use social networking sites in their advocacy to effective uses of civil disobedience.

    2. We hope people go home inspired to get active, or stay active. We all know this work is hard and often without tangible rewards. We all know it can be discouraging. Our hope is that the speakers and attendees can recharge each other to go home and keep up the fight.

    3. We hope people go home feeling that they are part of a community. That community may not exist in their own town or school or at their job, but the rest of us are out here and we’re all pulling for each other. Just getting to meet other folks and hear their triumphs and frustrations can help us all feel like we’re part of something bigger.
