Hi!

Hope you are staying cool, and calm, wherever summer (travels?) find you reading this. I’m thinking a good deal about milkshake machines, different ways of making ice cream at home, and a great many styles of ice for drinks I’ve seen over the years. Very grateful for the amazing number of national, regional and even international brands of vegan ice cream out there – and counting. OK I’m sort of loopy today while trying to keep working without melting here.

Ice cold cheers to you and yours.

Demetrius

Vegan RoundUP Eastern (Jun ’17) – Thrive Baltimore June Potluck & EatShopVegan

[ RoundUP is brought to you by Vegan Travel Club ]

 

What a jam packed spring that was! Was able to taste a bit of the future of veganism with a four course meal created by Haile Thomas at Organic Grill. Haile is a teen wunderkind who is meeting Clintons, scoring grants, leading a non profit, traveling around the continent, cooking up healthy plant-based fare for everyone’s betterment and plenty else. She’s definitely a breath of fresh air and welcome newcomer to the NYC vegan scene.

Shortly thereafter, I was lucky enough to enjoy a special 4 Course Vegan dinner at Brooklyn FoodWorks in its post-NYC era. Chef Matteo lives out in Northern California these last few years. And is actually near Miyoko’s Kitchen and a few other post-NYers like David of Harmony Kitchen and Mattie of VeganBaking.net

Veg Out (which predates meetup.com AND the internet!), 4 Course Vegan, Counter, Kate’s Joint and Veg City Diner are some of the key attractions I moved here 13 years ago for. Alas, only Veg Out remains and I’ve yet to learn of a 24 hour veg place anywhere near or far. Then again, this city DOES sleep 😉

Beyond NYC, the Eastern zone continues to bring more and more people, places and plates into the mix. Would be great to have more sponsors for RoundUP so we could go check them out for ourselves, show you some of those eats, report back on those and more…

Wishing you a great and fun summer!

Demetrius

Well, something about vegan Ireland must be in the air including the 2018 tour there, because RoundUP’s manager, Steph, has just gone there for quite the big birthday trip. Happy belated to her! 

Meanwhile, we have quite a lot of global vegan dining headlines to share in this edition. Hope you find them as tantalizing as we did. 

Cheers for the new season.

Hi there.

Excited to see yet another new place coming to the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota). I actually moved from there 13 years ago today, and it has been a SLOW progression of all vegan spots opening there. I bet an all vegan diner, open early and/or late, might help move things along also. Or maybe a Cinnaholic store! If I’m lucky, I’ll check out one or more new veg spots before the next edition here.

Best to you and yours 🙂
Demetrius

Out west and elsewhere it seems like vegan donuts are the latest mini-trend. I’m glad, and amused, this much beloved treat is part of what’s swaying people to consider what vegan is, and its many benefits for all life.

Meanwhile, 2017 VegFests are in full swing near and far, with many new ones popping up, including Northern California. 

Wishing you a great meal outdoors somewhere this month enjoying vegan, and Nature.

Best to you and yours.
Demetrius

Excited about how much new in happening in vegandom this season. And globally at that. Sort of stunned at how where the summer could take things. And even peeking at autumn a bit with the many low-costs airfares abroad the Northeast is lucky enough to have.

You’ll see above I’ve tasted a frozen treat that’s all veggies and fruits, no added sugars or such. It’s available at five of the Pressed Juicery Manhattan locations. By the next time I write you all, I hope to check out a good few more newer vegan(-friendly) spots in NYC. Love having the challenge of keeping up with it all. Almost need to be going to places twice a week. Wonder who wants to join for that. And otherwise wants to sponsor those writings and/or videos…. Hmmm. 

Cheers to a long weekend and the beginning of what I call ‘school summer’ (which runs through Labor Day).
Demetrius

Female directed original NetFlix movies

After a Twitter exchange with Melissa S., I took some time to Google about to see what I might find around the largest budget for a female director original NetFlix movie. That remains hugely unclear, if perhaps also apparent it isn’t amongst the biggest budgets.

Note: MOVIES is the focus here. Series-wise, Sense 8, Orange is the New Black, and Jessica Jones appear to be the big budget largely female directed projects.

Here are the 13 female directed original NetFlix movies I found. On the one hand, excited by so many interesting documentaries. Yet wondering if the world would be that much better with more fiction features from females…

  1. Coin Heist
  2. First They Killed My Father
  3. Hot Girls Wanted
  4. Mudbound
  5. My Beautiful Broken Brain
  6. The Square
  7. Tallulah
  8. Tig
  9. To The Bone
  10. A Very Murray Christmas
  11. What Happened, Miss Simone
  12. The Zen of Bennett
  13. 6 Balloons

Was amused to come across a black male film director amongst quickly reviewing this list for female directors…

Hi there. 

Continue to be awestruck by the ongoing announcements of more and more vegan eateries, and other businesses, opening around the globe. Talk about a winning feeling! While Australia has occupied a lot of my attention this year, it seems the UK has quite the spring unfolding with a good number of new spots named below, before and seemingly in future editions. It’s a great, and easier, time to be vegan 🙂

Best.
Demetrius
