The Week In Vegan: Turkeys, Thanksgiving, and Tasty Insects

Posted By on Mon, Nov 17, 2014 at 2:28 PM


Question: "Are vegans obligated to eat insects?" Answer: No, the only thing I am obligated to eat are cookies and cake. What you do is your own business. Pacific Standard, though, has an excellent discussion of whether eating insects isn't just ethical but mandatory for all vegans. Somewhere, a Whole Foods executive is rubbing their hands together greedily.

Want more protein? No problem! Eat the bodies of non-vegans who ask you about protein! Or beans. The corpses of your enemies will probably give you more gas, regardless of how satisfying they are. 

There's a vegan popup in Oakland and you need to be there. Created by the chef of Kitchen 388 (all meat, all the time), this popup is serving only vegan fare and, if 7X7 is to be believed, it is off the hook. (Do we still say off the hook?) (I do.)

Tofurky is celebrating 20 years! You still can't make me eat it, but congratulations, you guys! Here's to 20 more!

Is Kale Crunch for you? Is it edible? Is cheese flavor better than ranch? So many questions!

Thanksgiving is next week! Enjoy these delicious dessert recipes.

It's only Monday, but you can't start thinking of next week's holiday early enough! Here are some turkeys stampeding to get you in the mood!.

  • 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.'"
