"Farm Sanctuary, the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization, today applauded the Chicago City Council for passing a prohibition on selling foie gras within city-limits. The City Council voted overwhelmingly in favor of the humane proposal (introduced by Alderman Joe Moore) and became the first city in America to enact such a measure."

What are some of your favorite places to get vegan food in New York City? And elsewhere?
Nick Zinner: NYC is the easiest place to be vegan—it’s truly awesome. My favorite is Zen Palate in Union Square. Pukk is a newish vegetarian/vegan Thai place on First Avenue and Fifth. Also, the vegan Sicilian frittata at Old Devil Moon on 12th between A and B is great, and the place used to be Lydia Lunch’s bedroom. Kate’s on Fourth and B is probably the best punk rock vegan/vegetarian greasy spoon.
As far as other cities, I’d say Real Food Daily in L.A., McFoster’s in Omaha, Sipz in San Diego, and Pizza Luce in Minneapolis are super yum.

Miss Modernage, blogger: Friends, family, and Ryan Adams's inability to release no less than three albums this calendar year. God bless the man who drinks.

"Composer PHILIP GLASS revealed to me that his favorite movie theater is 'whatever is closest to my house' and his most favored restaurants are the similarly convenient Cremcaffe (65 Second Avenue), Atlas Café (73 Second Avenue), and Madras Café (79 Second Avenue). I guess he's the prisoner of Second Avenue." [Michael Musto]
"I’m a vegetarian! I love Gobo on 6th Avenue, Anjelika Kitchen on 12th Street, and Sanctuary on 2nd Avenue. And you can get great vegan desserts at Atlas Café on 2nd Avenue." [Le Tigre’s Johanna Fateman]

Best Blog for Knowing What Scenester Concerts to Avoid Every Night - BROOKLYN VEGAN
The accolade sounds meaner than it should, but I do blame BROOKLYN VEGAN for filling every good-to-great show with camera-phone looky-loos and people taller and typically more attractive than me and my rock-crit buds. Thanks, Vegan—I can't see the stage, and your dude just spilled his mascara on my shirt. -Nick Sylvester
and congrats to SFJ...
Best Blog by a Writer From 'The New Yorker' - SASHAFREREJONES.COM
It's fun enough to flip through The New Yorker on the train, reading about Diplo and Paul Wall while everyone around you assumes you're soldiering through the latest on Iraq and Edmund Wilson. At SASHAFREREJONES.COM, the magazine's top-notch pop critic spews the uncut version of his signature blend: Imagine a really smart, really excited kid pulling off an impersonation of an august American Studies professor. -Mikael Wood

It was the 14th Annual Brooklyn African Festival (July 31, 2005) in Propsect Park (Brooklyn, NY), featuring music by Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited, Gokh-Bi System, Maria De Barrow, Kakande, and Alain Nkossi Konda.
I think it was the first time I ever witnessed a 100% Vegan Caribbean food stand featuring choices like curried ungoat and jerk unduck.
