Amazing time to be vegan with many omnivorous burger joints adding Beyond or Impossible Burgers to their menus. Major national frozen treat chains adding vegan goodness to their offerings. Cheers to seeing more options EVERYWHERE. 

Stay cool 🙂

[ 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

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

Happy Spring to ya.

As we come to midSpring, I feel very grateful to see how much has happened in vegandom recently and is coming very very soon. It is AMAZINGNESS and counting. From seemingly out of nowhere, NYC opened an all vegan Mexican spot barely a week ago. NYC will welcome TWO new vegan foodie focused festivals. More VegFests are emerging near and far. And the list goes on.

Specific to NYC, I am noticing we are in a very good time and space with is the best vegan community in the world, with plenty visitors coming through ALL THE TIME 🙂 Come visit soon!

Peace 2 u.
Demetrius

Happy Spring to ya.

How come my trips to California seem to coincide with NYC eateries closing? This time it’s BIG – Angelica Kitchen is closing in two weeks! This is one of the longest running veg spots in the world! Not an enormous surprise if still a downer. 
Certainly want to share I am encouraged by how many more are using the word vegan (favorably), checking out vegan spots, shops, movies, and much more. It really is a beneficial way for All Life. As we move further into this year, Steph and I will share numbers and more about what we’re seeing putting the RoundUPs together.  
Peace.

Vegan RoundUP Eastern (Jan ’17) – Vegan Brunch Takeover & Super Philly Chili Bowl

[ 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

[ RoundUP is brought to you by Vegan Travel Club ]

 

Thank you for being part of our 2016. It’s so incredible to keep an eye *professionally* on what’s happening with vegan events and eateries around the world. For many years, a version of this email newsletter focused on NYC tri-state area events and information. As I found my stride with that format, I became involved with Vegucated… and this was put aside to groove on that amazing journey. Now with the great work of Steph – thank YOU Vegan Travel Club! – we’ve been able to expand this community project into a business. Steph & I very much look forward to bringing you more of these in the new year. (Knock.)

Amidst ALL of the things this year (!!), it does seem useful and important to note how amazing it is to have so very many vegan places opening, multiplying, developing and otherwise. With that, want to share a couple of observations…

Before that whole election thing, I was lucky enough to attend and speak at the 3rd annual Seed Food & Wine Festival in Miami. WOW! What a sprawling 10-part event bringing together people, plates and poshness. Already anticipating the next edition 🙂 Overlapping all that was the enormous amusement of seeing Miami be so much about vegan vegan vegan in multiple ways 10 years later; when it was nearly ready to run me out of town for even saying the word in ’07.

Back at home in NYC, it’s marvelous to see Chef Chloe Coscarelli continue to score SO M A N Y Today Show appearances, headlines, and exposure for her flourishing empire! Inspiring – to say the least. And this is only a sliver of what vegan NYC has Going ON lately 🙂 

My take on 2016, in part, is that veganism has either arrived or arriving; let’s see what 2017 says about it though.

Please know Vegan RoundUP – this newsletter – now offers a combined Mountain & Central edition, and a regular monthly Global edition; that is, events and headlines for beyond North America 🙂 We do appreciate your headline shares and event leads in reply emails. The comments are so spammy I feel like it’s the 1950s or something, so they’ll likely be turned off this year yet. 

To keep this special project going AND growing, we very much appreciate you recommending others subscribe! This is free to all, yet a larger readership begets more sponsors and more fun 😉

Very special thanks to Veg Dining for encouraging and supporting my leaning into more professional food writing this year. I would urge any frequent diners of the Candles to buy a Veg Dining discount card, and then put aside those saved dollars for a trip over to the amazing scene in Philly, down to Miami, or out to Portland or Los Angeles.

Cheers to a terrific 2017 for you and yours!
Demetrius
