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.

"The veggie voters have spoken, and American Idol winner Carrie Underwood and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin have been selected as PETA’s 2005 “World’s Sexiest Vegetarians,” narrowly edging out a host of other veggie Valentinos and Venuses, including David Duchovny, Reese Witherspoon, Joss Stone, Avril Lavigne, Joaquin Phoenix, and Prince, as well as previous winners Tobey Maguire, Andre 3000, Josh Hartnett, Alicia Silverstone, Natalie Portman, and Shania Twain."

I'm not much of an activist, but Foie Gras is disgusting, uber-cruel, & pointless, and Gothamist writing something positive about it ("our favorite foie gras dish in the city was blah blah blah") has me wondering if I'll submit a post next week. On the other hand, I know first hand that Gothamist doesn't really edit much (if any... which I think is a good thing) of it's contributor's content (therefore making the post the sole responsibility of it's author...even if it does have the standard Gothamist "we" lingo), and I believe in free speech (and my ability to trackback their post with this response), and I know that some people are just uninformed about the reality that is foie gras. Everyone makes mistakes.
Gawker on Gothamist's Pay Rates
"Forget the album charts or the hard fought ‘Biggest Band In The World’ title, some of the world’s most famous musicians, including Thom Yorke, Chris Martin and Anthony Kiedis, are up against each other for the title of World's Sexiest Vegetarian."

It was Gawker that actually brought this to my attention...
"I followed Billy Joel and his wife down Prince Street for a bit on Saturday 6/4. I assumed that he was going to show her where Mr. Caccitore's down on Sullivan Street once was, but instead he went into the new teany."
Now Moby at the bar is a friend of mine. OK, I won't go there.
The new (Moby owned tea house and cafe) Teany is inside McNally Robinson bookstore at 50 Prince St. in Manhattan. The other one is on 90 Rivington St.

Sloane Crosley, who couldn't hack it as a vegan and now eats fish, reminds me of what a freak I am...
"...being a vegetarian in this city is not unlike being gay. Vegetarian restaurants and options abound. I have the same number of veggie friends as I do gay friends. Because it's so common and sometimes even hip to be a vegetarian, it's become socially acceptable to poke fun of us. Being a vegan, of course, is more like the dietary equivalent of being a transsexual. Acceptance isn't quite as contagious as it should be."

I ran into some some people protesting Kentucky Fried Chicken while walking on 14th St. near 2nd Ave. in NYC yesterday afternoon (May 11th, 2005).
