Grilled seitan over rice vermicelli at Lan Cafe
Well hello there.
I nearly cried last week enjoying a final meal at Lan Cafe. It was too last minute and swift to gather some, any of you. And cold as a warlock’s tit out there to boot! Main reason I didn’t cry is that lemongrass vermicelli only needs hot sauce added. All else would be foolish, tears included.
And then the tears tried to come again this week during a visit to Chicago seeing a cousin who could so benefit from veganville. Seemingly, he was drifting to sudden death due to lacking decent care from his previous doctor. Now he has a team of doctors, all advocating a good many things, including plenty more plant-based eating…
Before all that, I was tickled to attend the recent Bunnies for Bunnies fundraiser for Urban Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitation, taste some locally-made vegan cheeses (plus a pate) made by Cheezhound (good stuff!), and see that Pure Food & Wine + One Lucky Duck have reopened.
Speaking of openings, stay tuned for V-Spot takes Manhattan – the location and space are wonderful!
Thanks to all those who sent over vegan crowdfunding campaign links last week. While I continue to be frustrated by a great many of them, I accept drafted (and, yes, ugh, live ones) campaign links for review FREE. This is in hopes of them being even better prepped for success, and to keep nudging the needle of veganism forward. And yes, I have and will take some on as a client where it makes sense.
