Foodswings is closing? Tell me this isn’t real life! »
Guys, wtf? I went to Caracas, the arepa place next to Foodswings in Brooklyn, and it looked like FoodSwings was shuttered. I checked on their FB and look what I saw!!!
From Dec. 5th:
And then from last week:
This is terrible news! Is there anything we can do? Does anyone have more on the story? Are they going to move to a new location? Please say yes! This totally blows.
NYC Vegetarian Food Festival is this Sunday! »
Sunday, Apr. 3, is the New York Vegetarian Food Festival! Huzzah! Are you going? I’m going to try and make it. You should be able to recognize me, I’ll be the one that looks extra Hollywood! I don’t know what that means. Regardless, the festival is being held at the Altman Building at 135 West 18th St. from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be lots of dope vendors there like Coconut Bliss, Sweet and Sara, and Foodswings. Sounds like a party!
UPDATE: The festival is totally FREE! Fantastico!
Vegansaurus NYC: Foodswings! »
Jesus Christmas, this is my new favorite place! It’s in Williamsburg, which I am finding out is not the most annoying place in the world after all; they do gots the good vegan food, that’s for sure. Foodswings is a self-proclaimed “fast food joint” and I got the cheese fries to prove it! The cheese fries were not amazing but they were definitely good in that, “yowza are these bad for me!” way. What really stole the show for me though was the chicken cutlet sandwich—it was off the hook! And it comes with soy mayo! You can get vegan bacon on it and all kinds of stuff but I went a little plain-jane with it. Next time, the works! My omni companion got the sausage and pepper hero and I was nice enough to try it and confirm it was delicious as well. The grilled onions and peppers on it were very fresh and yummy. The roll was great too; like, we talked about it.
The one downer was the side of fried plantains my friend got. They were actually battered and fried and they just didn’t really have any flavor. But the menu is big and diverse! There is plenty more to keep you busy. Oh! And BONUS: they sell Lula’s ice cream! Oh! And another BONUS: It’s full of good-looking people. So really the only downer is that I don’t live upstairs from this place! Seriously, let’s all move in there and eat vegan fast food and die slightly slower than the rest of our compatriots!
NYC Vegan Bakesales for Haiti, Jan. 28 and 31! »
Ladies and gentlevegans!! There will be two (2!) NYC vegan bake sales to support animals in Haiti next week. The first is at Vegan Drinks at Angels & Kings on Thursday, Jan. 28, 7 to 9 p.m., organized by SuperVegan. More than 20 generous vegans will be baking all sorts of scrumptious confections—cupcakes, cookies, cinnamon buns, even doggy treats—the proceeds of which are going to the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti and SODOPRECA. Per usual, DJ Lil Ray will be rockin’ the beats. And don’t forget the booze: 2-for-1 during Vegan Drinks!
Because VEGAN BAKESALES SAVE LIVES, Mooshoes will host another on Sunday, Jan. 31, 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Those profits go to Doctors Without Borders. But this is not just a bake sale; it’s also a raffle with gift certificates from MooShoes, Candle 79, Foodswings, Sweet Avenue Bakery, Lula’s, Tiengarden, and a bunch more! Oh my gosh, I want to win one of those! And also help people!
If you’re looking for ways to help animals in Haiti but you can’t tell your ass from the mixing bowl, attend one of these fiiiine events and buy all your Valentine’s Day presents, or donate money directly ARCH or SODOPRECA. Do it!
