Sweet Beat: S.F. Represents During Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale

Posted By on Mon, Jun 22, 2009 at 10:30 AM

The Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale takes place at various locales across the planet this week. Besides sharing the delicious and the dairy-free, the initiative is meant to be an occasion to donate charitably to causes that help animals.

Tonight, new vegan baker Violet Sweet Shoppe will be at Hemlock Tavern (1131 Polk at Hemlock) from 5-8 p.m. selling goodies like cupcakes, sweet bread, and hand pies. Vegan White Russians will be on special in the bar, too. VSS proprietor Crystal Rice will also offer discounts on online orders for the week, donating half of her proceeds to Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue.

This weekend, Vegansaurus and the Bay Area Post Punk Kitchen Crew will host two bake sales: One on Saturday, June 27, in front of Ike's Place (3506 16th St. at Sanchez), 11 a.m.-4 p.m., and another on Sunday, June 28, on the 800 block of Capp (at 24th St.), also 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sugar Beat Sweets baker/Urban Housewife blogger Melisser told SFoodie she plans a menu of snickerdoodle and strawberry shortcake cupcakes, peanut butter swirl brownies, and whoopie pies, and that there will be a further selection of items such as donuts, pies, bread, muffins, and even dog treats. Proceeds from these sales go to Animal Place and East Bay Animal Advocates.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
