The Week in Vegan: Vegan Children, Donuts and Hard-Working Dogs

Posted By on Mon, Sep 8, 2014 at 2:00 PM

  • Dunkin' Donuts, the best place to go for a cruller and I don't care what you say, is adding almond milk to its menu. Hell yeah, I'll dip my balls (of delicious fried dough) in it!

  • Chickens are getting a better deal, come 2015. It's still going to be legal to eat them — :( chickens — but their treatment is going to get a little bit better, and their cages a little larger. Small steps, I guess.

  • Summer's almost over (I keep saying that because I am trying to make myself feel okay about it), but here are some delicious pizzas you can make and eat with your friends outside. Bring a sweater. Bring two. 

  • We already missed it, but the word "vegan" is commemorated every September 2nd. Its creator, Donald Watson, would have been 104 years old this year. He and his wife Dorothy coined the term 70 years ago and are celebrated ever September. Let's start preparing for next year now. 

  • Vegan in the board room? Turns out that it's no longer taboo to ask for cruelty-free options at business lunches. In fact, it's becoming more and more expected. Good. I will have the vegan everything. And two of it. 

  • Speaking of board rooms: It's Monday, so get up, get ready and get to work. Even these adorable dogs are toiling away today. Here they are fighting to get a tire out of the water. Go get that tire, you guys! Own it! (Like we are going to own this week!)

  • 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.'"
