Seattle Vegan Bloggers Cocktail Party February 18, 2012

If I learned anything from attending Vida Vegan Con last August it was that Seattle has a lot of vegan bloggers. Last night a bunch of us got together at the home of Anika to have cocktails, a lot of great food and conversation. It is always great to be in a room where I can eat everything on the table, and know that everyone in the room shares my ethics.

The aforementioned great food? We had a ton of it.

The delicious spread.

So much so that a few hours later, this is how much we still had left.

The delicious spread with barely a dent in it.

Anika had a great juicer that was super quiet and easy to use, and allowed us to make fresh juice (to add to champagne, or not). I now have kitchen appliance envy.

I didn’t manage to get any pictures of the people in attendance, but others did, so see Helen’s post on the evening to see the bloggers themselves.

I had a lot of fun and look forward to seeing some of the girls for dinner at Thrive next week, and the rest of the group at future meet ups!

Vegan Options at Einstein Bros Bagels February 12, 2012

They put in an Einstein Bros Bagel in the building where I work last month, and on Friday I found myself there for lunch with a few of my coworkers. I had failed to look at the menu online before we went, which I usually do to avoid any nasty surprises of not being able to eat once we arrive. When I got to the front of the longish line, I asked the women working the register (who I think was one of the assistant managers) if the veggie bagel sandwich would work for a vegan, she immediately said yes, they would just take off the cheese and the cream cheese.

The result was a whole wheat bagel loaded with veggies and sprouts, and a dill pickle on the side. I did appreciate that the bagel was soft enough to bite in to, most bagels are too hard to chew properly, and I feel like I chew and chew and never get anywhere. I did wish that they had one nondairy spread to offer, that would make the sandwich even better, but over all it was a fairly satisfying lunch and I am not opposed to going back in the future.
