Week in Vegan: Vegan Schools, a Vegan Butcher, and the Most Adorable Baby Goat

Posted By on Mon, Jun 16, 2014 at 12:05 PM


  • A school in Southern California will be the first to be all vegan by 2015. The students will not only eat vegan, but they'll help grow and harvest their own vegetables. (This is a much more useful skill than Geometry, which I have never had to use once as an adult.)
  • A vegan diet may be better for patients with type 2 diabetes than the traditional doctor-prescribed diet. Science!

  • Even People magazine is getting into veganism. The glossy's website ran a piece on the best vegan finds. You gotta eat what Alicia Silverstone eats to be legit.
  • Celebrities are speaking out about Butterball abuse. Kate Mara and Jenna Dewan-Tatum want the turkey torture to end. Hopefully a celebrity endorsement will be just what the public needs to take notice.
  • San Jose is now taking part in meatless Mondays, which gives me a reason to visit San Jose as least once a week! Clever!
  • An advertising exec sold his agency and is now running the first no-meat butcher shop. If you're intrigued, I guess he's good at advertising. And the food sounds delicious.
  • There's no better way to illustrate how your first cup of coffee on a Monday morning feels than watching a baby goat accidentally swallow a fly. That'll wake you up!

  • 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.'"
