As we reported in Week In Vegan this morning, Field Roast vegan frankfurters will now be available at Giants games in AT&T Park this season! Vegansaurus broke the news yesterday.

Anyway, I can attest: These are super legit! They smell so good in that spicy-hotdog way! They aren't just flavorless vehicles for condiments, they are delicious in their own right. We're still waiting to hear if the buns will be vegan. Non-vegan buns are the bain of my existence. They cause so much awkwardness! Nice people go out of their way to accommodate you with vegan burgers and dogs, but then they always forget about the buns. You never know though, plenty of commercial buns are accidentally vegan so maybe this won't be a problem. 

Even if it is though, these dogs are good! You can eat them on their own. Have a vegan frankfurter, get a vegan beer, and you've got yourself the well-balanced meal of America's favorite pastime!

Here's the full announcement from Field Roast:

Today is opening day for Major League Baseball and we have some great foodie news for San Francisco baseball fans. The new Field Roast Vegetarian Frankfurter passed the test at AT&T Park and will be served at this season's Giants games. Field Roast Grain Meat Company's vegetarian (and vegan) version is made from grains, fresh garlic, onion, organic expeller pressed palm fruit oil and traditional spices. Created using a bowl cutter used to mix animal meat frankfurters, Field Roast President David Lee recognized the importance of creating the perfect texture to rival any true-meat dog. In a category grown stale with heavily processed tofu dogs dominating, the rich and juicy Field Roast Frank is staged to be a game-changer. In fact, even the most loyal hot dog aficionados will be hard-pressed to dispute this new frank's delicious flavor and meaty texture --perfect for summer BBQs, catching a Giants game, or football tailgating this fall.

  • 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.'"
