The Week in Vegan: Evil Pie, Vegan Butchers and So Many Cats

Posted By on Tue, Dec 2, 2014 at 8:00 AM


If you bought your pumpkin pie from Whole Foods this week, you may want to return it. There's a recall due to undeclared walnuts (always trying to sneak in) hiding in the desserts. This is potentially annoying to those who hate nuts and potentially deadly to those who are allergic to them. Tl;dr: Whole Foods might be killing people. 

Cory Booker is everyone's vegan crush. Or at least mine. He recently gave an interview about eating a plant-based diet (he's been a vegetarian but is going vegan until 2015) and he continues to be the best. Is he still single, because I am very interested. 

The first vegan butcher shop is opening in Minnesota. One of the owners is named Kale. I am literally less surprised about this fact than anything else I have ever been unsurprised about in my entire life. I will still go when I visit Minneapolis next. 

Want to take even more action to make this world safe for animals? Skip wool this winter. It's itchy as hell and also not good for the sheep. Try some nice synthetics instead. 

Animal rights activists are building cozy winter homes for feral cats. Feral cats have responded to this news by just walking away whenever they feel like because cats can't be bothered with you, okay? (They will likely appreciate their new houses.)

Speaking of cats, I tried to adopt one this week from Compassionate Pet Sanctuary in Modesto, but my partner wouldn't let me even though he agreed that Trixie was adorable. You should adopt a pet from them — adopt Tricie, invite me over — in my stead. Also,.I met Grumpy Cat. It was terrible

It's Tuesday! Here's a squirrel playing a flute.

  • 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.'"
