The Week in Vegan: Couture, Controversy and Pole Dancing Champions

Posted By on Mon, Aug 18, 2014 at 4:05 PM

  • Just a reminder: The Humane Society isn't a vegan organization. While the org does a lot of good, it's also sponsoring a Colorado event charmingly entitled "Hoofin' It" which showcases the deliciousness of a different hoofed species several nights in a row. That's gross. JL Fields (huge fan!) contacted the HSUS and they reminded her that they're not just working to better the lives of animals, they're also working to end inhumane practices in the farming industry. I guess that's something, but, like Fields, I'm having a hard time justifying my support of the HSUS when they sponsor an event like this.
  • Teens will eat anything (yes, including flaming hot Cheetos with cream cheese), so if you're raising a vegan teen you should make sure their diet has all the nutrients they need to be healthy, happy and in top form to tell you that they hate you and will never forgive you for something that will be completely inconsequential three days from now. Here's what you should look for when shopping for your vegan teen.

  • Whole Foods is selling rabbits now (not for pets). No one is happy. Protests are happening.

  • Shopping for your fall wardrobe? Here are some ideas for making your clothing spree both stylish and ethical. (Pro tip: Buy 10 pairs of jeans and 10 black shirts and dress like me! Attractive, functional, made possible with only one trip to Costco.)

  • It's back-to-school time, and if there's one thing that helps make the transition bearable, it's a delicious meal of your favorite comfort foods.

  • Tired of shelling out the big bucks for scrumptious vegan ice cream? Make your own at home. Now. Without an old-timey churner. 

  • The national male pole dancing champion has been crowned and he's a vegan. Check out the amazing things Seanmichael Rau (who's from the Bay Area! WHOOW!) can do and have an awesome monday.

  • 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.'"
