The SuperVegan Round-Up, January 4: Restaurant openings, Food, Inc. free online, John Mackey profiled, bunnies burned, and more

Guys, so much happened this week, I don’t know where to begin. So let’s just start with restaurant openings, yes?

  • Sun in Bloom opened Saturday, January 2 and, because I am a man of my word, I went for brunch. It was good. Really good. I mean, check out that loaded burrito — avocado, beans, tofu scramble, and all sorts of tastiness up in that bitch. And no nutritional yeast, thank you.
  • On that same magical day, Vinnie’s Pizza in Greenpoint opened. Almost makes you want to move back to Greenpoint, doesn’t it? (Actually, no, Pizza Plus is right here and I’m laaaazy.)
  • Babycakes opened its LA location Sunday, January 3. I know, you’re in NYC and you can’t do a thing about it except drool. Well, drool on this!
  • And in restaurant closings, Red Bamboo Brooklyn closed.
  • The New Yorker profiled Whole Foods co-founder and CEO John Mackey.
  • Food, Inc. is online and free, so no more excuses.
  • Hospitals in the UK’s publicly funded healthcare system will take meat off the menu to cut carbon emissions and costs, The Guardian reports. Yes, less pollution AND less expense! ALL SIGNS POINT TO NOT EATING ANIMALS.
  • Sweden is using bunnies as fuel. They are shooting bunnies, “deep freezing” them, burning them, and then calling it biofuel! COME ON. BUNNIES, NOT BIOFUEL.

    Who knew that John Mackey is a climate change denier?

    John Mackey is also a staunch defender of pull yourself up by your boots capitalism–he’s funneled money into defeating the Employee Free Choice Act, busting unions, and fighting against single payer health care (ala his awful Wall St Journal op-ed).

    I’m not exactly sure why the New Yorker piece about him was highlighted today. As a vegan, I’m proud to disassociate myself with bigots like Mackey.

    Good food is what im talking about but after all that food what do you do next. Well thanks to I have found the answer. There really is a lot to be said about having
    someone beside you as you walk the weight loss journey! Though you may have very little
    to lose or you may have many pounds to lose, each weight loss battle is personal and it
    comes with numerous obstacles and challenges to overcome.

    Thanks, Catres. In the future, please e-mail restaurant info to if you can!

    I fixed a few of those already. Some will take more work/research.

    Pongal seems to still call itself Pongal at that address on their own website.
