The Week in Vegan: Hamsters, Holidays and the High Seas

Posted By on Mon, Dec 15, 2014 at 1:31 PM


The latest news from newly vegan heartthrob Cory Booker is that he's feeling great, looking even better and bounding tall buildings in a single leap. A single leap, everyone. This is what eating a plant-based diet can do for you, too!*

Still don't know what to give the friend who has everything? How about a vegan cookbook? Here's a list of the best recipe manuals of 2014. Your friend or family member probably doesn't have at least one of these — and you can confirm this by breaking into their house and checking out their bookshelves. It takes a lot to be a good Santa these days!

Ever wanted to go on a vegan cruise? Well, now you can! I promise that cruises are fun (Provided you're not with your parents or on a Carnival cruise — or worse, with your parents on a Carinval cruise. Nothing worse. Eighth circle of hell.) Vegan cruises sound fun though.

Giving months cutesy names is usually my cue to roll my eyes until they hit the back of my head so hard I pass out, but I'm all for Veganuary, a push to help people become vegan all January long. No moustache required!

One more vegan gift suggestion! The Vegan Cuts beauty box seems like the perfect thing to gift someone who loves surprises and mail. By that, I mean you should probably get it for yourself. Vegansaurus profiled the most recent box and it looks pretty fresh (not that there are by vegetables in it).

Before the Oscars, before the Golden Globes, before the debacle that is the VMAs, there's VegNews' Veggie Awards, bringing you a comprehensive list of all that's good in the cruelty-free universe!

And since it is Monday, you're likely tired — I have just the pick-me-up you need right now: Hamsters in tiny Christmas hats. You're welcome.

  • 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.'"
