Y'all, we have some vegan news:
- Jerusalem broke our hearts.
It turns there is butter in the rice, and yogurt in the baba ghanoush. We never add anything to the guide without first confirming its veganness, but Jeru was fibbing. (Or didn't care enough to actually check when we asked.) Bummer.
- But we are falling in love with Beet Box all over again.
BECAUSE THEY ARE OPENING A STOREFRONT! As in, their soft opening is on Saturday, April 13th. With a vegan grocery store and vegan bakery/cafe, I think we can say that Denver has officially arrived. Plants & Animals has some sweet pics.
- Sushi Sasa has awesome vegan food, and now a happy hour!
First, we loved them for their vegan tempura. Then we loved them for their grilled artichoke. Now, they overhauled their menu to add little vegan optional tags to veganizable dishes, and introduced a killer happy hour. $5 canned wine, $5 grilled artichoke with miso vegan aioli, $2 avocado tempura. OH. And they have a whole mocktails list, so our edge friends aren't left out. It's heaven. Be sure to ask for the VO options to come vegan, though!
- The Worldwide Vegan Bakesale is coming up!
Denver and Colorado Springs are both doing one. Details on the calendar.
- VegFest is July 6th and 7th.
Clear your schedule!
