  1. Hello all you compassionate people! Do you like vegan food, LUSH products, tripod dogs, massages, facials, world-saving jewelry, and videos of fatty puppies and kittens and sea lions? Come this Sunday to the Darwin Animal Doctors (DAD) Charity Pot Party by LUSH on the Upper West Side!

    DAD is planning a December campaign in the Galapagos Islands, with a vet and two vet techs, to treat as many animals of Galapagos as possible before the Christmas holiday, and to spread as much humane education as possible. And before we embark on this trip, we’ll be supporting as many animals displaced or hurt by Hurricane Sandy as possible. To fundraise for all these efforts, LUSH is giving us a Charity Pot Party this Sunday.

    If you come, you can learn how LUSH helps to fund activism and causes like DAD’s humane education program in Galapagos, and watch videos of our work and humane education on the islands. Stay to get a massage for charity, enjoy a facial by LUSH, eat delicious bake sale items, meet our spokesdoggy Piggy, enter a LUSH raffle, and peruse our merchandise, including hand-made jewelry that locals on Galapagos have recycled from paper, plastic, and other waste on Galapagos. Proceeds will go to help fund our December campaign, as well as rescue efforts in post-hurricane NYC.

    And most importantly, no one leaves a LUSH store or event without smelling AWESOME. See you there!

    Where: LUSH, Broadway btwn W 76th and W 77th Sts.
    When: Sunday, November 11th, from 1pm to 5pm
    What: Massage chair (gas permitting transport of the chair), facials, LUSH raffle, sweet and savory bake sale items, hand-made Galapagos jewelry, merchandise with cute animals, and a tripod dog!

  2. With all the devestation and cuddling caused by Hurrican Sandy, New Yorkers are living in the present even more than usual right now. But. Mark your calendars for the night of Election Day, Tuesday, November 6.

    We’re throwing a giant vegan election night party at Fontana’s on the Lower East Side (the same place we do Vegan Drinks) with delicious, organic, local, savory food from Chickpea & Olive and delectable, organic, artisinal doughnuts from Dun-Well Doughnuts.

    You don’t want to be sitting home alone on Election Night. We hope to celebrate tongether. We may have to mourn together. Either way, we should be together. With lots of delicious food, a full bar, great music, and a giant wall-sized projection screen to watch the returns come in. We did this four years ago at the now-closed Red Bamboo Brooklyn and it was a heck of a great night. Let’s do it again, Vegan NYC!

    While we’ll turn on the TV sound when needed, we’ll otherwise be listening great music all night from DJ Grand Format, DJ Jason Das (that’s me! I don’t DJ as much as I used to, but I still got the records), and update: DJ Megan Rascal!

    The location is Fontana’s Bar, 105 Eldridge Street (between Grand St. & Broome St.), New York, NY 10002. Here’s a map.

    RSVP on Facebook, if you like that kind of thing.

    All are welcome. Vegans and non-vegans, heavy drinkers and teetotalers … even Romney voters, I guess, though I’m not sure where you’d find one of those around here. You don’t have to be eligible to vote to attend, but you do have to be 21 to get in the bar.

    See y’all there.

  3. Green Peas 2.0

    After what felt like an endless renovation, Green Peas Casual Food in Culver City, CA finally re-opened yesterday. It was packed! There were balloons! Check it out:

    My sandwich is better than your sandwich! That one’s the New Lemon Pepper Chicken. Who’s that in the middle of the bottom row? Why that’s TeeVee’s Laura Innes! They still have Jamaica’s Cakes (I had Strawberry Vanilla). And have you tried their pea soup? It’s unlike any you’ve had before. Look at the steam rising off that cup!

    The food is still great, and maybe a little more great, with some new menu items and special dinner specials planned, but I’m not so sure the 6+ months of down time was worth it. The new space, while supposedly a vast improvement for the staff (the nicest people ever), is less so for the diners, other than that our food should be ready faster now and apparently there’s a patio in the back (I didn’t see it). But the once big open floor plan is now broken up into several smaller-feeling spaces that don’t flow nearly as well. And though the chalkboard wall menu is still in the same spot, the registers are in a little nook off to the right. This is problematic because when huddling in the check-out, the menu is out of your line of sight.

    Welcome back, Green Peas, we’ve missed you! NEVER LEAVE US AGAIN.
