The Week in Vegan: Gifts, Guides and Tofu Salad

Posted By on Mon, Dec 22, 2014 at 1:53 PM


It's Christmas, which means many of you will be flying back and forth and starving in airports. Luckily, there's a guide for everything these days, including where to eat when you're stuck waiting for your flight. No more stale crackers and diet Coke for you! (Unless that's your thing.)

Looking for a new holiday favorite? What about curried tofu salad? My mouth is literally watering just thinking about it and I am plotting on how I can get someone to make it for me.

If you're still searching for cruelty-free gifts, here are some you can make yourself. None of them feature popsicle sticks prominently, I promise.

Just Mayo, the miracle mayonnaise that isn't mayonnaise at all has persevered against Unilever, the giant multinational corporation which sued its tiny competitor for "false advertising." Apparently, you can call your mayonnaise mayonnaise, even if it doesn't have eggs in it. 

Vegansaurus has an excellent gift guide for those of you shopping for non-vegans. Also, they're selling limited edition t-shirts, which I bought ten of and you should, too. 

If anyone asks you about going vegan this Christmas, you may want to point them to this excellent article about the building blocks of animal rights. Easy to understand and much easier to digest than meat. 

It's the Monday before 2-3 days off, which means we all feel like this turtle waiting for it to happen. Come on, Thursday!

  • 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.'"
