Cartoon by Nick Milliner. This Nugget’s Canadian brethern will now be gassed to death rather than electrocuted. Hooray!
- SuperVegan’s 2nd birthday party is tonight!! Come on out to ‘sNice Brooklyn, 315 5th Avenue at 3rd Street in Park Slope, 6:30pm-10pm. Complimentary cake and keg (feel free to bring supplementary alcohol, too), plus an all-vegan menu of other goodies (that you’ll have to pay for) from ‘sNice.
- I know you all think Vegan Treats cakes are great (unless you’re one of those who ate too much and ODed), so maybe you’d like to read this profile of VT and proprietor Danielle Konya. Also, check out our best attempt at an up-to-date list of NYC restaurants that carry Vegan Treats.
- PETA has annoyed KFC Canda enough that the fried-chicken giant is actually making some changes! Says KFC Canada president Steve Langford, “(PETA) can be unpleasant to deal with, and from a business point of view, it’s nice to put that behind you.” General welfare upgrades will happen to how they (mis)treat their chickens, and they’ll be introducing some kind of vegan faux-chicken to the menu. Sounds nasty to me, but I guess if I’m on a lonely highway in the wilds of Canada, I’d be glad to have it.
- I was going to write a whole blog post about Polyglot Vegetarian’s phenomenal article on historical Branded Meat Substitutes, but I simply haven’t had time to read the damn thing yet. If you’re into the history of veg food, or simply into history, go read it. And you must check out the included poem from 1904, “To a Health-Food Girl.” Hail to thee, Granola Maid!
