Hi hi.

So Champs Diner (not the be confused with Champs Bakery, Champs Jr. OR the reported Champs Corner Grocery) has moved to 197 Meserole, which is around the way from Dun-Well Doughnuts and also the L train’s Montrose stop. Hooray for y’all sharing real-time intel(ligence) on these things! Just realizing with a vegan grocery, Champs could become NYC’s 2nd largest vegan empire (by number of locations). After Blossom, which seems to be near 10 now, and going past the Candle and Beyond Sushi trios. GO VEGAN NYC!

Had the great fortune of attending that vegan wine & cheese meetup at an oils & vinegar store up in Westchester; thanks SO MUCH Carmella & Carlo! Do believe this event deserves a version in the city. WHERE is such a store though? That’s vegan (friendly) and ready for a sizable crowd though?? Anyone? Soon as we have a viable venue, I can put together this special, ticketed event with cheeses from near and far!
