Cocktails and Dinosaurs: VeganMoFo 2014 Week #3

The posts that I had once hoped would be weekly that I now struggle to keep bi-annual.  Check out this list of crap I found on the internet.

  • Are Meatless Mondays part of the liberal agenda?  Probably.  Also, if you have some time to kill search "liberal agenda" on the Fox News website.  I just learned a bunch about feminism and I am outraged.  (Note: Meatless Mondays are not "brainwashing" your kids.  You do not need to eat meat at every meal every day to be healthly.  Quite the opposite.  New Flash!  Vegetables are actually good for you.  Who's up for Vegan Vednesdays!!!!!)
  • Well, this t-shirt exists and now I need it!!  (via
  • Speaking of, they have coupons for Beyond Meat.  Boosh!
  • Even after NYC is voted the most vegan-friendly city in the nation with vegetable skyline and all, we are in danger of losing Angelica Kitchen, who has been serving vegetarian food in the East Village since 1976.  Stop what you're doing and go eat at Angelica's!!!
  • Do you like plants?  How about Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy?  Would you like to text Groot?  Because you can.  (via CBR)  I wonder if he's on twitter.  #obviously
  • Ways to make your tofu taste more like meat. #veganvednesdays (via The Daily Meal)

I'll just put this here:

Tara made this incredibly sweet cocktail for us the night before our good friends got married, that's why we have the wedding theme.

Congratulations Shaun & Leila!

Cocktails and Dinosaurs: VeganMoFo 2014 Week #1

Semi-regular posts from a blog that some people might say teased a taco crawl post and then disappeared for almost a year.  More on that taco crawl later.

  • VeganMoFo is back!!!  Check out the 2014 blogroll here.
  • Do you know how to eat sushi?  This video is pretty interesting if you ignore all the fish stuff. (via kottke)
  • Dunkin' Donuts is introducing almond milk and that's not all!  If you tweet or instagram with #almonDDmilk, you are entered to win $100 or $500 gift cards.  Read more here.  #almonDDmilk #wherearemyvegandonuts #veganmunchkinswouldbecooltoo (via The Daily Meal)
  • Check out the SNACKPOCALYPSE trailer on Funny or Die, which proves the importance of a plant-based diet within the structure of a parody of a YA novel based movie.  (via Jezebel)
  • 12 daily struggles only a vegan will understand.  This is a good list.  Although, number #8 has never happened to me.  I guess my friends aren't monsters.  Apparently #veganprobs is a thing.  #hashtagthat  #forreal #thisisnotgettingold
  • In animal rights news, Unilever is pledging money to research ending the horrible practice of the egg production industry of grinding up little male chick because they don't produce eggs.  Although I'm glad that they are trying to end the inhumane disposal of fluffy little baby chicks, I'm troubled by the thought of people using this to feel better about eating eggs.  Even outside of the hatchery, there are plenty of problems with the egg industry.  Why don't they use their money to research egg substitutions?  (via The Daily Meal)

Cocktail of the Week:  This thing.  I'm not sure what it's called.  It's an evening worth of drinks in one glass.

What's in there?  It's a fruity frozen margarita, an extra shot of tequila, and an inverted bottle of Corona.  I can feel my mom shaking her head as I type this.
