[ RoundUP is brought to you by Vegan Travel Club ]

 

Glad to see at least a few known new places opening or coming soon in the Eastern Time Zone. With at least a few more known ones in the works still like Marty’s and Cienfuegos.

I will be one of the judges for Super Philly Chili Bowl – a vegan food competition produced by my friends V Marks the Shop. It’s definitely a love fest with avid diner Andy of Compassion Co, previous vegan competition champion LJ and Dustin (aka Vegan Roadie) as the emcee. Please say Hi if you are in attendance!! And yes, tickets are still on sale – don’t delay though, these things sell out ALL the time.

Keeping it brief this time as this Year of the Fire Monkey wore me O U T ! 

Happy Midwinter.
Demetrius

Vegan RoundUP Global (Jan ’17) – A Veganuary Feast, Vegan Australia Day!

[ RoundUP is brought to you by Vegan Travel Club ]

In 2016, it seemed like a lot of vegan restaurant headlines came from the U.K. and Australia. Curious and excited to see where  vegan will be hopping this year. And perhaps even visit some of these places in person.

Admitting publicly, I’m a bit irked and jokingly embarrassed that vegan fried chicken is debuting in London. Isn’t that hugely our thing in the States, especially fried anything? Even now seitan in buckets and baskets?

It’s a curious time in the world, so guessing we will see more fresh ideas capturing our attention if not dining dollars. 

Wishing you a terrific and tasty new year.

Demetrius

Happy New Year. Wishing you a superb ’17.

I’m still tickled and astounded by how many headlines in 2016 were for vegan eateries opening and multiplying. Particularly in SoCal. WOOHOO! Excited to see how 2017 adds to that. And what new and original spots will emerge.

Urge folks to keep supporting their favorite veg spots wheter a review, tweet, verbal affirmation or such to boot. Words do mean a lot, and can positively change someone’s day or week 😉 As well, encouraging us to also check out new veg spots, giving them a chance and also support.

OK keeping this brief as I’m being asked to turn in some paperwork for Vegan Street Fair LA.

Cheers!
Demetrius
