Big Halloween Weekend for New Orleans Vegans!

There is an amazing amount of activity happening in the New Orleans Vegan community this Halloween weekend! Check it out:

*By all accounts, Chef Anne Churchill brought down the house at Feelings Cafe on Wednesday night with her Karma Kitchen gourmet 5 course vegan meal. We here at NOiG would of course LOVE to see more of this kind of activity, and applaud all involved. I unfortunately could not be in attendance, and hope beyond hope that there will be another one soon.

*Sorry to say that you've also already missed October's Vegan Drinks New Orleans, which was a total blast. We had awesome food from O'Shea of Dream a Little Green, as well as a great raffle benefiting the Louisiana Humane Society. A surprise visit from Jasmine and Mariann of Our Hen House at the end of the night brought the event to a splendid conclusion.

*Saturday and Sunday, 10/29 and 10/30, you can find awesome brunch goodies from chef John Morales of O! Vegasm over at Hey! Cafe. Items will be on sale throughout the day until sold out - which tends to happen pretty quickly with John's food, so it's a good idea to stop by early!

*Sunday 10/29, 11am, Vegan Brunch at Grit's lives on! While we are all still reeling from the loss of Chef John, we bravely carry on and welcome Chef Amie Havens of Magazine Street's Superfood Bar. She'll be serving up the following fantastic-looking menu for $17 per plate:
  • Cajun spiced sweet potato Rosti
  • Seared Tempeh
  • Warm Seasonal Salad with a cashew cream sauce
  • Buckwheat Crepe with autumn spiced cashew cream filling, satusuma reduction with fresh satsuma segments
  • coffee included!
Our Sunday Grit's Brunches will be ever-evolving, but will continue for the foreseeable future. We hope to host a variety of the talented vegan chefs from around town, and continue to provide a central meeting time and place for Nola's veg community.

If you're hanging out in the Quarter / Frenchmen area for Halloween, don't forget you can stop by 13 for a bbq tofu po boy. And if you're over by the Marigny / Bywater, hit up Wandering Buddha!

Have fun and be safe kids. ;D
