Great news! Vegansaurus has just secured four VIP tickets to the VegNews Book Bash with Spork Foods, despite the event’s being almost sold-out! We have connections, what can I say. I am going to be at the party (I’ll be under the Cinnaholic cinnamon bun bar), and I hope you will, too! We’re giving away two pairs of these coveted tickets, which include sumptuous vegan appetizers, all-you-can drink cocktails, a signed copy of the brand-new Spork-Fed cookbook, all the photobooth photos you can take, and, yes, the aforementioned cinnamon bun bar. And this all takes place on VegNews' gorgeous rooftop deck in the Mission. Seriously, it's the prettiest and most glamourous place in this filth-ball city!
We’re gonna give them out in sets of two. That’s two sets of two VIP tickets, if my math is correct! For a chance to win, just tell me what your current favorite vegan cookbook is (side note: did you see that Vegan Pie in the Sky is out?! So exciting! Buy a million copies! Plus, we’ve heard there are recipes for OLIVE OIL CRUST and MIND-BLOWING CHEESECAKES. Hello!), and I’ll draw two winners this Friday at 5 p.m.. That’s in TWO DAYS! So get to stepping! The same day we stop selling our t-shirts! And the Vegucated tickets giveaway ends! Friday is a big day!! Please only enter if you can definitely make the party (Friday, Oct. 21 at 6 p.m.). More details here! Now, enter!
Plus, we’ll get to hang out? How awesome will that be?? The answer is: VERY AWESOME because I am like, the cutest, coolest, sexiest, smartest, most down-to-earth lady you’ll ever have the pleasure of lying under a cinnamon bun bar with. Let’s do this!
Finally, let’s drool over the Cinnaholic cinnamon bun below and dream up our most favorite topping combo would be. Oh! If you don’t want to tell me your favorite vegan cookbook, let me know your favorite cinnamon roll topping combo OMG SO FUN.
***Contest closed! But you can still buy tickets and go AND YOU SHOULD!***
You totally want to meet Jennifer Coolidge, right? Because she’s the baddest beeyatch on earth and her performance in Best in Show is maybe the best thing that’s ever happened to the motion picture industry. Seriously, during the impending End of Days, if I’m charged with grabbing a few items of cultural significance to preserve for future generations, you better watch the fuck out because racist pieces of shit like Breakfast at Tiffany’s will go down in flames. I’ll be on an inflatable dingy, floating in the debris of our trashed civilization, clutching copies of Cabin Boy, Billy Madison, and Best in Show. BELIEVE IT.
Here’s your chance to meet Jennifer Coolidge at a swanky-swank party for Farm Sanctuary! Not only will you meet Coolidge, you’ll rub elbows with Moby (most famous famous vegan),
John Salley (he plays sports!), Bob Harper (will he make you do push-ups to earn a second serving of fruit?), and our hero, Farm Sanctuary Founder and President Gene Baur. I mean, we really love Gene Baur. Like a lot. Not only is he wildly attractive, he’s a superhero to the animals, and is very nice to look at.
The reason you’d be hanging out with famous people is that it’s Farm Sanctuary’s 25th year in operation (SO COOL) and they’re celebrating with two mega galas, one in NYC and one in Los Angeles, and you’ll be attending the launch party to get people all hella excited. Fun, right? Now, you might be saying, “Vegansaurus, you are on drugs (true), how can someone so lowly as myself possibly bump uglies (that means “meet,” right?) with the likes of Jennifer Coolidge and Moby?” Well, here’s how!
Vegansaurus is lucky enough to have two tickets to giveaway to the 25th Anniversary Gala launch party this Saturday, Apr. 23, in Los Angeles (at a private home in the Hollywood Hills. FANCY!). That’s right, the pink dino is moving up in the world and we’re taking you with us! Or we’re sending you in our place because we’re too poor to get to L.A.! To win a ticket for you and a friend (THAT’S TWO TICKETS), let us know which Farm Sanctuary animal you most want to adopt. You can just tell us that you love pigs the most because they’re great or you can play favorites and give us the name of the Farm Sanctuary animal you love the most.
Also, while you’re at it, you should totally actually adopt one! It feels really good to give money to such an awesome organization and you can display their picture on your fridge and in your wallet and when your mom bitches at you, “Why don’t you have kids! You’re so old! And such a disappointment!” you can be like, “WELL, ACTUALLY…”
We’ll randomly pick a winner on Thursday afternoon, so the rest of you will have a chance to buy tickets and go. Seriously, only $100 for an evening of fancy fun, delicious vegan food and drink, and MEETING AND POSSIBLY MARRYING JENNIFER COOLIDGE. All that and the money goes to an amazing cause! You know you were gonna give them $100 anyway, might as well get some booze out of it!

A Vegansaurus Giveaway: Tofu, cookbook, and THE MOST AMAZING SHORTS EVER! »
So, last week, we were invited to The Plant Cafe to enjoy a delightful lunch prepared by Nasoya and Kim Barnouin of Skinny Bitch*. The lunch was to celebrate Nasoya’s unleashing of its new website, Nasoya’s Tofu U. It’s actually super-adorable, and aimed at making tofu cooler, which frankly, tofu needs. Tofu is the Urkel to Bacon’s The Fonz. Does that make sense? Anyway, it’s totally rad and adorable so check it out!
NOW, for the exciting part! We’ve giving away a Nasoya gift pack that includes a copy of Kim’s JUST-released Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook; three coupons for free Nasoya products; a you-won’t-be-embarrassed-to-wear-it American Apparel Tofu U t-shirt, a Tofu U rucksac (best word ever), and most importantly: THESE AMAZING SHORTS WHICH CAN BE WORN SERIOUSLY OR IRONICALLY AND ARE 100 percent MIND-BLOWING AWESOMENESS:
So if you wanted to go as Lt. Dangle for Halloween, you wouldn’t have to buy a costume because GIRRRRL, those shorts are ALL you need! If that pair of shorts were a man, I’d already be pregnant KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING. NEITHER DO I.
For a chance to win all this awesome shit, let me know what you’re gonna be for Halloween. Or your favorite fatty bitch recipe. Or a number between 1 and 2 million. WHATEVER! I’ll pick the winner with random.org anyway! Contest ends, let’s say, next Tuesday, Oct. 26. Okay, good luck!!
*As we all know, I am ill pleased with the whole Skinny Bitch thing, but Kim’s cookbook is good, with lots of healthy recipes and beautiful pictures. Also, when I asked Kim about Skinny Bitch being so super fucking gross she said that she knows you don’t have to be skinny to be healthy and that it’s a marketing thing and she’s moving toward a Healthy Bitch brand which I think is rad SO YEAH THAT’S MY STORY.
When you’re done licking the screen, head to Manifest Vegan for the recipe and to enter to win an ice cream maker! Because it’s their first birthday and they’re giving US a present! That’s another reason we love Allyson (the genius behind Manifest Vegan) so much. She knows what we want and what we want is to celebrate her blogirthday by getting free shit. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!
