The SF Ice Cream and Hot Sauce Takedown is Sunday! Let’s beat the omnis! »
This SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! There’s going to be an “Ice Cream and Hot Sauce Takedown” in SF! That doesn’t mean you have to eat them together. It means that there is an ice cream recipe contest and a hot sauce recipe contest! It’s for everyone, but how cool would it be if a veeg (that’s my new abbreviation for vegan! Imma make it happen. Laura is already on the train so you should hop on too) beat out the omnis for 1st place? Spoiler alert: SO COOL!
Here are the details:
The third and final stop of the Ice Cream and Hot Sauce tour ends where hot sauce and ice cream are done best. And local home cooks have the gumption!!! For a mere $15, enjoy their insane inventions of insanity, in both catagories at this palate-torturing megahate fest. Ice Cream and Hot Sauce are the chocolate and peanutbutter of idiots everywhere! Find out why! (To my way of thinking, the ice cream will soothe any horrible pain you may experience from the SF burn sauces you will choke on…) You’re welcome for this awesomely perfect idea, SFers! I can’t wait!
CALL FOR COOKS! Got a fine-ass hot sauce? A delectable ice cream? Submit your recipe in either category!!! There’s tons of prizes!!! SPOTS ARE NOW OPEN!!! EMAIL ME to compete!!!
Our Rachel entered the Denver Avocado Takedown a while back and she reported (we’re totally reporters!) that vegans seriously dominated. The judges voted one vegan dish 3rd place and the people voted vegans for 3rd AND 1st place—huzzah! Let’s keep this going! If anyone can make it, please please enter! There appears to be awesome prizes you could win, like Cuisinart stuff, Wüsthof knives, and other super-cookware.
If you don’t want to enter, looks like it’ll still be a good event to attend. Scream Sorbet is a sponsor (and you know Vegansaurus loves Scream Sorbet), bet you’ll get some free! Bi-Rite Creamery and Three Twins Ice Cream are both sponsors too and both usually have at least one vegan ice cream on hand, so hopefully they will be serving those up at the event as well. I’m not one for hot sauce but I’m sure you’ll see some hot sauce action to boot. If you go, be sure to send me pics.
Let’s takeover the takedown!
Artists, design students: 2011 Design Against Fur poster competition »
Are you a talented student and totally anti-fur? You should enter the 2011 Design Against Fur competition! Above is last year’s Europe and International first-prize winner. Dudes, apparently the bar is LOW because that poster is kind of LAME. It just doesn’t do it for me. What do you think?
The deadline for registration is Apr. 1 and the deadline for submissions is Apr. 15. First prize is 700€! According to my calculations, that’s about $954 U.S. Holler! You could finally take me somewhere nice for a change.
