Last Day in Paris

Last Day in Paris

Are you really productive on Sunday? I am. There is something about the last day (of the weekend, in this example) that pushes me to action. Of course this ‘Sunday urgency’ exists today, Friday, as it is my last day here in Paris, France. With a full day […]

Vegan Shop-up @ Pine Box Rock Shop

Vegan Shop-up @ Pine Box Rock Shop

I usually shy away from these kinds of shop-up things. My introversion makes them quite taxing. But every once and a while, I’ll partake. Mostly because I’m irrationally obligated to carry out my Burger Showdown in a timely fashion. I had to hit Cinnamon Snail for their […]

NYC Staycation Road Trip

NYC Staycation Road Trip

Dear New York City, I know I’d sooner drive hundreds of miles to a remote vegan option over state lines than hit your streets sometimes. The unfortunate truth is: you’re not who you used to be to me: escape, inspiration, excitement. Now, you are diluted, […]

<i>Isa Does It</i> Best

Isa Does It Best

I trust Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Not just because she’s got punk cred I can relate to–like pen pal-ing with MRR (which, I’m shocked to learn, is still in publication and has a Twitter), “salad days” of all-ages punk shows, zine culture and the general coolness […]

On Assignment, Vegan in Ann Arbor

On Assignment, Vegan in Ann Arbor

Sometime in August, lazily lounging on a couch, I thought it’d be a good idea to move my blog forward to “all states reporting” status. This thought during this determined August, the tail-end of a summer spent stacking my professional credentials, could not have known […]

Day 11 in Deutschland, Up the Rhine and Onto Cologne

Day 11 in Deutschland, Up the Rhine and Onto Cologne

This simple breakfast gave me the strength I needed to see the rest of the sites in Bacharach and then head north on the Rhine river. Some wheat Wasa’s covered in strawberry jam. They even had this Wasa-dispenser. Its bottom slides open to reveal a waiting […]

Maimonide Of Brooklyn [M.O.B.]

Maimonide Of Brooklyn (or M.O.B.), a communal eatery that upholds the philsophy and health beliefs of founder/French hotelier Cyril Aouizerate, touts “avant garde” vegetarian food for all. I usually shy away from vegetarian eateries steeped in quasi-spiritual practice… (I’m thinking of places like Little Lad’s, Loving Hut, and Oneness Fountain […]
