Heyyy ya'llllll!

There are some sweet things coming up in my life that I just want you know about!
I am going to be heading to Chicago Vegan Mania on Saturday November 5th! Woop! If you are in the midwest, I tell you what. If you find me at Chicago Vegan Mania, I will give you the biggest high five you've ever seen. It'll be EPIC. Click here for the MVR blog and make sure to like us on Facebook/Twitter!

Oh hey. Have you guys heard about the radio show I am the "networking administrator" for (Midwest Vegan Radio)? If not, you should search us on iTunes, go to OR! HIGH FIVE MY AT CHICAGO VEGAN MANIA. Find me. I'll be wearing a Midwest Vegan Radio tee and sporting epic smelly hat hair from the 6-7 hour drive over. What up!

Ok ok. So everyone knows I like wine right? WELL.
When one has drank too much wine and then wakes up in Minneapolis somewhere wanting to bike to a place that's close and provides a good ol' cup of coffee and possibly some sweetass vegan flapjacks, there are a few places in the Twin Cities that I would recommend for the complete hangover cure. And you don't even need to get all spruced up for these places either-you can come in as smelly and hungover as you want.

These are, in no particular order:
1. Triple Rock Social Club (for the weekend brunch)
2. Hard Times Cafe
3. Bad Waitress
4. Seward Cafe!

You've heard me blab on this thing enough about numbers 1-3, but number 4 on my list also does a damn good job as I found out the other day.

Here's what I had!:

The vegan pancakes at Seward Cafe are the closest thing to pancakes I remember having at Denny's or Perkins when I was a kid. Good stuff. You should go and check 'er out. Yap. I'm out!

I have been sucking it up when it comes to Vegan Mofo. I did this last year too. Bit the big one-HARD. I suck.
Anyways, here's my attempt at updating you about what's going on in my life. I have been dating...gasp! An omni. He's so cool. I know you'll understand.
My dog has been vegan for quite a while. You might have already known this. It's cool.

I got some ideas...some big ideas and they're hopefully about to take the next step up. I'm glad I'm about to do what I'm about to do...but! It's secret. Hee.
Right now I am fully satisfied with where my life is headed. I love it.

Ok ok! I know all you REALLY wanted from me was a food review. So here goes.
A couple of weeks back I went to a couple of places that served sweet sticky rice for dessert. FUCK MAN. If I could eat sweet sticky rice every night for dessert I would probably have more foodgasms in my life. YUM.
A couple of friends and I celebrated my moving into a new place by going to Sen Yai Sen Lek, which is a Thai joint literally 20 feet from my new place. Ok not literally but whatevs, it's right down the damn road.
The mango sticky rice in coconut milk was divine! I also had this veggie dish. It was ok. Nothing spectacular about it accept for the fact that I couldn't pronounce it. We also had some fried tofu. Good thing I can pronounce that, because it was fucking tasty.

I also went to Amazing Thailand for the first time ever. It's located conveniently right in the uptown area. I enjoyed the mango sticky rice dessert. The place also has a very colorful interior. VERY colorful. If I was drunk I'd probably have a heyday and flip the fuck out.

I would recommend both restaurants for awesome restaurant experiences and for the fact that they have SEPARATE VEGAN MENUS. Delicious and not too expensive!
Totally awes. I'm out yo!

Matchbox treats and other thangs.

Cafe Matchbox, my fave cafe in my neck of the woods (NE MPLS), has vegan pastries every once in a while, supplied by Mayday Cafe (South MPLS). I did not realize how freaking amazing the pastries were until I bought one the other day, go figure! It was a vegan chocolate chip cookie with nuts.

In one word, "stellar"-gooey, sweet as hell with a little nutty taste and crunch.
Check 'er out, ya'll: things with the blog. I want to make this about more than vegan food, and really all I talk about here is food. And don't get me wrong, food is fucking awesome. But I'd like to share with you all other important parts of my Minnesotan life, like my ambitions, dog, love, problems, music, etc etc. I think it would be extra super special if I were able to share those kinds of things on here.
So I guess I'm deviating from what vegan MOFO really is all about. God, I'm such a punkass, as usual.
