More vegan jobs for vegans: Cinnaholic is hiring!  »

Our pals at Cinnaholic need a "part-time highly motivated staff member who can do it all!" You’ll need to do a bit of everything, including bake and frost cinnamon rolls, run the register, and keep the shop clean and well-stocked.

Could you do this? If so, apply today! Of course you don’t have to be vegan or even vegetarian to get hired, though everyone would love you better if you were. Really. Come on.

No Worries, vegan Filipino restaurant coming to Oakland! AND THEY’RE HIRING.  »

We tried No Worries last year at World Veg Fest and fell in love. I mean, in luuuuurve. We ate so much vegan Adobo that we had to be wheeled out of this event dedicated to healthy living. OOPS! Anyway, at Veg Fest, the No Worries team was talking about plans to open in the Jack London Square area of Oakland and now we find out it’s really happening and they’re hiring (GET A JOB, LAZY! Also, we assume that by “welcoming appearance” they mean that you should pop a few buttons at the top of the blouse, honey.) Vegansaurus HQ(ish) is within spitting distance (how uncouth!) of their new location and you best believe we’re gonna be hitting this place up on the regular. And by on the regular, I mean I am the bird lady currently standing in front of their building. Don’t be afraid to say hi, JUST NO EYE CONTACT.

UPDATE: Heard from Jay at No Worries and he says they’ll be opening at 1442 Franklin St in downtown Oakland in September. So not spitting distance but walking distance (even for me, the laziest of JLS residents) (oh! and close to 12 Street BART!)

Thanks to David Surcamp for the heads-up! He’s the dude who brought you those ridiculous Weekend Ruiner cinnamon rolls at last’s SF Vegan Bakesale. Bow down!

Spice economics, school lunch wars, pretty clothes, the politics of animal protection and MORE in today’s link-o-rama!  »

Nightmare blog: Fed Up with Lunch, in which an anonymous public school teacher buys lunch every day in the cafeteria, photographs it, and discusses how in/edible it is. She also has guest-bloggers, and supports the Healthy School Lunches program, because seriously this “food” is vile and nearly inedible.

Fun-times vegan-style events!
Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution premiers tonight on ABC at 8 p.m. (Eastern/Pacific), and you can watch the first episode right now online, too.

Tomorrow, Saturday Mar. 27 Mission Street Food is having a vegetarian night, with many vegan options available! We know, we know, and you don’t have to go, but when they make vegan food it is very good, so.

The LGBT Army of Compassion will hold a “peaceful demonstration” against animal cruelty on Sunday, Mar. 28 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Northeast corner of the Heart of the City Farmers Market at U.N. Plaza. Click here for further information.

Greens is throwing a huge party for its 30th anniversary, which is a huge deal, as Greens was the very first haute vegetarian cuisine restaurant. The “gala” will be at the San Francisco Zen Center on Saturday, Apr. 10 from 7 to 10 p.m., preceded by a reception at 5:30 p.m. Tickets for the “pre-reception” cost $50; tickets for the gala, $200; combined, $225. If you want to take me, I’ll go—I have lots of nice dresses and shoes! Though there’s a better chance of my putting out if we just go to Millennium, because hi, all that’s vegan.

Items of social and political import!
Do you live in the Berkeley area? Do you need a part- or full-time job? Maoz Vegetarian is hiring!

Tobey Maguire helped open a Teaching Garden in Inglewood, Calif. this week, in support of the Child Nutrition Act (Healthy School Lunches Program, what!). Hooray!

Food banks like Meals on Wheels have been delivering pet food along with human food, because broke people can’t feed themselves or their animals.

Help save wolves, before Sarah Palin guns them all down for high ratings on the T.V. You read the news, you know I am not kidding.

Would you like to hear a story about the popularity of chicken wings? It’s vile! Especially the part about how they make “boneless” chicken wings, puke.

How about an odd, lovely essay regarding hummingbirds and mid-19th-century American writers?

The talented, beautiful, amazing Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart of Vaute Couture has a feature on vegan fashion on Oprah.com.

H&M launched its Garden Collection this week, clothes made of organic and recycled materials. Go on, look at the pretty things. [link from SuperVegan!]

This is the titular Oliver, of The Daily Oliver, not enjoying riding the subway in his “travel case.” There are pictures of him looking happier but come on, THAT FACE.

It’s conclusive: high-fructose corn syrup is much worse for you than regular sugar. Unfortunately science proved this by feeding obscene amounts of HFCS to rats. The scientists who performed the experiments sure look happy, though!

Foreign Policy would like to know why it’s cool to protect elephant ivory but not bluefin tuna or sharks. The answer: the economic/political status of the countries on either side of the issue.

In China, the latest national economic bubble is in the garlic market, while gangs are smuggling saffron into India.

In Taiwan, the Ministry of Education has recommended schools serve one vegetarian meal per week, for environmental and health reasons.

Ol’ Gavin Newsom wants to convert unused public land in San Francisco into gardens, which is great, but also “easy-to-assemble chicken coops,” which is ridiculous. Let Karen Davis of United Poultry Concerns tell you about how raising backyard chickens is not all scattering feed from a bucket and communing with your hens.

Kombucha: it solves all your health problems, forever, and you can make it in your closet. All the hippest hippies in the Bay Area are brewing it.

The state of Maryland is really pissed about oyster-poaching, and has seriously increased the penalties for violators. Poachers blame the crackdown for their poaching, because everyone loves a good “vicious circle” argument!

Mormons love Jell-O! Especially things like “shredded carrots, peas, and cubed ham—in gifts of Jell-O molds.” This is the Lord’s Food, y’all.

Would Mormon Jesus want you to "green up" your sex life? Vegansaurus does, duh.
