It’s Sweet Avenue's Thanksgiving desserts! They made pumpkin cheesecake and a sweet potato pie cupcake topped with Sweet & Sara marshmallows, with a side of Chicago Soy Dairy pumpkin ice cream! Oh deliciousness!
Vegan Peeps, y’all! And they’re called “tweets.” Way to work the Easter angle, Chicago Soy Dairy! They’re gonna be available soon, in two flavors: orange “bunnies” and lemon “chicks.” These are naturally flavored and colored and coated in vegan beet sugar. And they’re Kosher certified, so literally ANYONE can eat them. Except diabetics. Yeah, diabetics should probably stay away.
Vegan Pizza Day! Praise Be! »
So! You’re vegan and you love pizza? WHAT IS NEXT, you ask yourself? Well, the answer is: CELEBRATE VEGAN PIZZA DAY! Organized by our blogging BFF’s quarrygirl and the delightful Chicago Soy Dairy folks, this is sure to be an event to remember! Or, at least the extra 5 pounds on your ass will be all, “thanks, bitch!”. Kidding, fat asses are THE BOMB. Anyway, get ready for January 29th, 2011 when the vegan pizza eating, it shall commence! Oh, and if you see any vegan pizza places missing from their list, be a doll and add it!
Vegansaurus Midwest recommends Chicago VeganMania! »
Hello Chicago! And surrounding area! You guys are about to have a lot of fun! EarthSave Chicago is holding the second annual Chicago VeganMania this Saturday, Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and you’re all invited! Really! It’s at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse (1419 W. Blackhawk, between Division and North Avenue), it’s FREE, and that is all you really need to know, you guys: Saturday, VeganMania, Free.
OK, if you must know more, some details. You’ll get a bunch of chef demos, notably from Soul Vegetarian, the Chicago Diner, and Isa Chandra Moskowitz! You’ll get speakers, like Oakland’s own Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, and, oh, Isa Chandra Moskowitz, she is an unstoppable force! Also performers! See the schedule for particulars.
What about buying stuff? With free entry, you are basically obligated to make purchases inside—that is a tenet of capitalism!—so what will your options be? You can buy food from, yes, Soul Vegetarian, that’s exciting! Who else will be there? Chicago Soy Dairy, naturally, and Herbivore, and Supreme Master TV! Of course your own Vaute Couture, and a whole lot more.
According to organizer Marla Rose, you can also expect “appearances by the Vegan Cupcake Fairies.” That’s a positive thing, y/n? We are assuming yes, as Marla Rose uses the word “amazing” to describe them. Vegans with children, whether for the day or ever, don’t worry—once they get cranky and unmanageable, just dump them in the free “children’s play area” and let strangers deal with it! Brilliance.
You know, were we not spoiled by “sweater in the morning, jacket in the evening” weather most of the year, we’d move to your gorgeous city in a heartbeat, Chicago. The architecture knocks us out, the rent is sickeningly low, the theatre scene is amazing, and clearly you vegans are revered as precious creatures with your own “Mania” day. Unfortunately, your Vegansaurus is a big baby about things like S.A.D. and temperatures that actually kill people. We’ll just have to be long-distance friends.
Have fun at your Mania, Midwest vegans! Report back, with photos!
Vegan Mozzarella Sticks! We can get fatter and unhealthier by the second. Thank Chicago Soy Dairy for Teese.
This is actually the perfect use for the new Teese. It comes in the tube so it’s easy to cut out chunks, cover in delicious batter, and then fry! Plus, unlike the old Teese recipe, it stretches! I cannot wait to eat a metric ton of these suckers.
