Next Saturday, Lourdes Canas-Jovel and Anthony Acock will host the first-ever vegan cupcake eating contest in New Haven, CT to celebrate the release of their cookbook, Little Vegan Monsters. Competitive eaters will have to devour as many delicious frosted cupcakes as possible in 5 minutes. (Sure, gorging on sweets sounds like fun now, but wait until your hair is in the toilet.) Folks undeterred by the pukey pitfalls of competitive eating are encouraged to sign up by Tuesday, March 20. There are now two spots left.
If you prefer to pace yourself as you enjoy vegan goodies, come anyway to cheer on the gluttons and slowly savor a cupcake or ten.
The details: Saturday, March 24 at Noon. Fuel Coffee Shop, 516 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT. Free, but donations to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary are encouraged. More info: Visit littleveganmonsters.com, email Lourdes, or call (203)745-5806.
