OK Spring is well under way with Summer coming to a park near you very very soon.

So by Chloe Silverlake, and the Whole Foods 365 it will be inside of, is supposed to open May 25th. Keeping fingers cross they stay on schedule. Please send pics and reports when you go! In case you didn’t hear it already, this location is in addition to two additional NYC locations (Flatiron and Soho) plus a bakery by its flagship, PLUS a Boston shop opening this summer. WOWZA! Load up the byCHLOE. Rewards app now though, so you are ready to chow through the rest of a terrific menu.

Speaking of national moves, stay tuned for Jamba Juice‘s launch of a plant-based menu for all its stores. And know Trader Joe’s now sells vegan marshmallows; how did they know we are nearly ready for s’mores season? 😉

Glad to learn Charlie’s Brownies gluten-free bites are now a topping option at vegan soft serve shop, Yoga-urt!

Stoked to hear about a new storefront, Vegan Q in Newport Beach. They’re doing a soft opening this weekend. Hat tip to Michelle for bringing it to our attention.

Really HAPPY to see Vegan Fat Kid making moves to school people on where the really great L.A. vegan eats are with his 10 Best Vegan Breakfasts in Los Angeles list.

Pleased that another SoCal vegan caterer has emerged in Lettuce Be Vegan Personal Chef Service.

Check out this fantastic and enriching profile on the Baker Behind LA’s New Punk Rock Vegan Doughnut Shop.

 

Continued thanks for your vegan scene intel! It helps us put together an even better RoundUP.

Please be well (fed).

Demetrius

Terrific RoundUP NYC 5/5/16 – FREE Panel, Cinco De Mayo Special & Philly’s rise

IMG_0452

Happy midSpring to thee.

I’m sitting here a bit astounded at how many new veg spots have popped up in NYC these last 18 months. And then in Philly too! Seems like I may need to find a good month to explore each throughly, not to mention a budget and tasting team to do it properly. Granted in NYC, it’s more about getting to the very new places as well as pricier one, since much of it is familiar.

Thursday evening (May 5), come out and see a rather handsome and health focused panel – vegan, of course – for FREE using discount code VEGFEST2016. Right before or after that, you might hit up Organic Grill‘s Cinco de Mayo special: 3$ organic Guac & chips, 5$ organic beers from 5-9 pm

Congratulations, kudos and HUGE thanks to David Greene for crossing the 10,000 members mark with his New York City Vegetarian & Vegan Meetup. What a stunning number and accomplishment 🙂 Shout out to ALL of his team on this part of this.

As I put this edition together, received notice there is a Vegans of New York project and Facebook page. Sounds like yours truly might make an appearance on there in June. Stay tuned.

Please know magnificent macarons maker Sweet Maresa’s is teaming up with exquisite chocolatier Lagusta’s Luscious on East Village vegan sweets shop Confectionery. Oh! it’s actually opening TODAY on 9th St off 1st Av (404 East 9th Street). Ha, a good benefit of sneaking back on to Facebook to learn this and let you all know.

What’s already been open for at least a few days is a SECOND location for Butcher’s Daughter over in the West Village! (Huh, thought they were working on a West Coast place.)

Park Slope now has a People’s Pops storefront just in time for warmer weather. We will get some warmer weather again, right??!

That long in the works Whole Foods at Bryant Park is coming early 2017.  Meanwhile, the Harlem one is also coming along too, though no opening date.

OK it’s official – Philly’s vegan scene is HOT per New York Times! WOWIE. Veganism is – WOW 🙂 🙂

Philly gets its first vegan diner, The Tasty, in the next so many weeks. Meanwhile a bit north of Philly, all vegan Firefly Café has opened in Boyertown.

If you are on Instagram, go ahead and check out PhillyVegans‘ 10k Giveaway featuring a HUGE prize package of all their favorite Philadelphia Vegan things!

Big congrats to V Marks the Shop for producing a SOLD out vegan mac & cheese cooking competition 🙂 And big congrats to LJ, the winner!

Saw this in prepping this edition – America’s First Vegan-Certified Farm Is In Philly. And It’s Vertical.

Finally, I’m putting out an APB in NYC for these Zico blends (pictured above). So please let me know where you see these being sold anywhere. I do want to taste them. Likewise still seeking a shop with Califia Farms‘ Agua Frescas.

 

Many thanks for reading these missives, sharing your leads, thanks, support, and all the rest.

Cheers to more peace and patience in our world.

Demetrius
