If this picture from their website is any indication, the V-Spot needs to fill some chairs! (It can actually be pretty crowded, so plan ahead.)
From October 15-19th, Park Slope’s V-Spot is giving away 100 free meals (maximum value of $10, which is maybe not quite a meal at their prices, but still a fat discount!). The catch? Not only can you not be vegan but you are required to have “never tried vegan food before” (whatever that means). I’m gonna guess that rules out anybody who is reading this blog post, but maybe you know someone? Oh, you also have to be at least 14 years old (strange but true, maybe their lawyer made them say that).
The goal is worthy enough on its surface – “to break negative stereotypes people have about vegan food” – but I’ll confess to being a little confused by this promotion. It’s convoluted, hard to enforce, and reinforces the idea that “vegan food” somehow has no crossover with whatever non-vegans eat. Wouldn’t be better to just set up a sidewalk stall every weekend and hand out free finger food and cookies? But hey, if it works, great.
Send all your stingy vegan-food-hating friends and family to the V-Spot this week. Maybe they’ll like it enough to go back there with you for Brooklyn Vegetarian Restaurant Week.
