Nicora Johns wants to make gorgeous vegan shoes. They want to make them domestically, with environmentally responsible materials, in beautiful, classic styles.
They’re asking for a LOT of money on Kickstarter to launch the project, which seems daunting, but isn’t this everything you could ask for in a vegan shoe? Check out the styles! I want ALL OF THEM, especially the Sylvias boot and patent Sallys lace-up, oh man. So elegant!
Seriously, if you’re into U.S.-based manufacturing, vegan fashion, environmentally responsible fashion, or beautiful shoes, you should probably support Nicora Johns. One day the only option for (new) shoes will be vegan styles, but let’s work to make that a choice, not because we’ve ruined the planet and have to fashion foot-covers out of burlap sacks and old leaves.

This Saturday: SF Food Not Bombs fundraiser for reusable plates! »
They go through a lot of plates and utensils serving people at Food Not Bombs. Like, A LOT. They want to stop doing that AND create some gross dish washing work for their volunteers by purchasing sustainable plates! Woo! And to purchase those plates, they need to raise some monies. Enter, vegan dinner party. This Saturday, Feb. 5 at “alternative space” Station 40 (3030 16th St.), the Food Not Bombs crew is serving up a vegan feast, featuring some delicious-sounding eats. Anyway, here is the homespun (?) flyer (next time they should holler at Susie Cagle, no??), and here are the details, you should totally go:

And that’s just the start of it; there will be lots of tasty vegan street cart eats in the evening as well!

Free Vegan Cupcakes on Wednesday! »
Come drink beer and eat vegan cupcakes to raise money for Rocket Dog Rescue. Yours truly will be there, along with the Hot Ladies (and a few bros) of the Internet, serving up drinks at Elixir from 9 pm to 1 am. It’s gonna be super trashy, Coyote Ugly style! If you’ve been bad, there will be some table dancing and ripping off of shirts and playing ballads on the bar while also in a wet t-shirt contest. Basically, it’s your dream night.
More details and SEE YOU TRAMPS THERE!
