Holiday Vegan Bakesale in San Jose on Saturday! »
Santa Clara County Activists for Animals are hosting a vegan bakesale this Saturday, Dec. 17, in San Jose. So many vegan things to do in the Peninsula/South Bay this week, I’m jealous! Writing this post at my Grandma’s house in Redwood City, I wonder if I could make a life for myself out here? Living in the city is just so trying sometimes! How’s the nightlife out here? Be honest with me.
You might still be able to contribute baked goods to this event, despite the short notice. It runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Garden Theater Atrium, at 1165 Lincoln Ave. in San Jose. The proceeds will go to both SCCAA and the Food Empowerment Project! Visit the event’s Facebook page for more details.

HELL YES: Marin Vegan Bakesale! »
Vegan bakesales are taking over the BAY AREA! San Francisco, the East Bay, the Peninsula, and now Marin! California knows how to party. And how you party here is with PIE. Also, booze and drugs, just not at these events.
SO. If you’re in Marin and would like to bake, contact Sarah. If you just want to eat everything, be there! Where you ask? Take it away, Marin Vegan Bakesale!
Looking for bakers and eaters of delectable vegan treats for Marin County’s FIRST VEGAN BAKESALE, in celebration of the Worldwide Vegan Bakesale and in solidarity with the people and animals of Japan. All proceeds raised will go to Doctors Without Borders (Médecins sans frontières) and to Kinship Circle for their work in Japan relief efforts.*
You can help bake and eat:
1. e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
2. Invite all your friends. (Facebook invite, yo! If you don’t have FB, you’re either a serial killer or the coolest person we know. One of those.)
3. Save the date and come eat yummy vegan treats for a great cause.
All eating and purchases are guaranteed to be 100 percent guilt-free.
When: Saturday, Apr. 30, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Where: Outside of Cafe Trio, 363 3rd St., San Rafael (Montecito Shopping Plaza).
Make sure to check out our host, Cafe Trio, too—we’ll be right outside and they offer an outstanding menu with many delicious veg options, including a vegan soup of the day and a tofu scramble. Plus, they are totally big-hearted and awesome and excited about the day.
*Doctors Without Borders has sent medical teams to support the government-led earthquake and tsunami response in Japan. Kinship Circle has disaster and veterinary trained teams ready for Japan deployment to assist with animal quake-tsunami aid, and is also supporting countrywide animal rescue efforts.

Online bakesale for Japan! Bid on dino cookies from Vegansaurus! »
You guys! I am participating in a blogger bakesale for Japan! You read right. This means I will be shipping many cookies to one lucky winner. The Tomato Tart (we love her!) is hosting the sale, and all bidding will take place on that site on Wednesday, Mar. 30. So, uh, you all gotta bid on my cookies. Actual cookies, not my boobs… is that slang for boobs? or maybe it’s vagina? Either way, you’re not winning those UNLESS THE PRICE IS RIGHT EMAIL ME.
What I’m auctioning off is a couple dozen vegan cookies of various flavors that will all be shaped like dinosaurs. They may be pink, if I can figure out science by then. Either way, they will look like Hell Yeah It’s Vegan’s dino pizza, just smaller and made with cookies:
Yum! See you tramps there!
Cupcakes for Choice raised $1,500 for Planned Parenthood! »
High five, y’all! Many thanks to everyone who came out in the rain and donated and stuffed your faces and made it happen! And many many many thanks to the wonderful Robin Doolin, who did the majority of the organizational work, and is an all-star superstar. Turns out, eating vegan whoopie pies for reproductive rights is where it’s AT. Now I can cross that off my list of sentences I never thought I would type. Just last week I nixed, “I’m kind of attracted to Bobcat Goldthwait” off my list of sentences I never thought I’d say. Out loud.
So we can all feel even crappier that it’s Monday, here are some pictures of delicious vegan treats that you can’t eat. Sad.
Happy Hours, Movies, & Bakesales: Vegan Valentines-y Events! »
1) Vegan Happy Hour on Friday, Feb. 11! It’s got a romantical theme, too. And don’t forget, two awesome vegan cookbook authors are in town for events so maybe they’ll be there and you can woo them with your sweet words/tasty potluck additions?? Anything can happen, it’s Valentine’s Day weekend! Let that fat fucker shoot you through the heart with his terrifying arrow. Sweet love.
2) On Saturday, Feb. 12, there’s Lovers and Liberators: A benefit for the Red Vic. The lineup is a little complicated but definitely Bold Native will be screened and Cinnaholic is providing cinnamon rolls. WHAT COULD BE MORE ROMANTIC? RSVP (?) on Facebook, Romeo.
3) Also on Saturday, attend a Raw Divine Desserts class. Make vegan desserts and them eat them off your LOVA. Or eat them sobbing under your blankets. It’s delicious either way!
As far as super romantic VD dinners, It’s probably too late to get reservations anywhere good, so why don’t you cook your honey a fine meal at home? The nerds at KQED always advocate it—check out last year’s (vegan!) recipe for Heart’s Desire Beet Salad. Nothing like a beet to heat up the kitchen. That’s my advice to you for February 14. Happy love-making, lovebirds.
The fabulous East Bay Animal Advocates need bakers & eaters for their bakesale this Saturday, May 29th, in Oakland! It’s to raise money for their SF Pride float! Having a float in the parade means that they can reach thousands and thousands of compassionate people with a YAY VEG! message. It’s a crazy important day for bay area veg activism.
If you can bake or volunteer, email Michelle! Do it up, fatties!
East Bay Vegan Bakesale this weekend! »
It’s that time again! Hooray! The East Bay Vegan Bakesale returns this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m, at the same location as before, in front of Issues. Perennial baking superstars Fat Bottom Bakery, Cinnaholic (have you tried the pizza rolls?!), and more will be on hand dishing out treats to benefit Animal Place and Haitian relief efforts.
If you want to bake, email them! If you want to eat, SHOW UP! Let’s do this, vegans and fellow fat-asses!
