Mayday Cafe covers my ass.

You know, food-wise.

When it comes to a good cuppa joe and vegan pastries, Mayday Cafe's got this shit on lockdown.
Check it out:

That's a vegan maple sconey right there. It was perfect-not too sweet, crumbly and perfect for dipping in my cup of light roast. Their coffee is excellent-lots of flavor and bite. Man, I love me some good black coffee.

Get there! I like Mayday a lot for its seating layout-it makes you have to get close to and even possibly have a conversation with someone else sitting near you. You know, forcing people to get out of their comfort zone and stuff like that.

The Donut Cooperative owns ALL.


We've actually had them for a while, but this is some serious shit right here. Like, monumental. Like, I don't even have to go to Portland this year if I don't want to, because The Donut Cooperative has my vegan-donut-craving-ass covered. Sweeeeeet.
Check out what I had there:

That right there is coffee (looking extra huge by the way), a vegan chocolate chocolate cake donut and a delicious vegan muffaletta-type sammy with vegan rinotta cheese. Fucking stellar. I left feeling like a blimp, but it was so worth it. Get here, people. You will not be sorry.

Ha! Update!

Soooooo last night I went to see The Lion King at the Orpheum. It was, even though I was not high or drunk, trippy as shit. That is all I will say. You will have to see it for yourself if you'd like to experience what it's like to not be on drugs and still face the mind-blowing aftermath. Yep.

Well anyways, as you know my mother is a health vegan, which is cool. We eat all of the same things now so we had to find a place near the Orpheum (read: smack-dab downtown) that served vegan food. So that's why we chose CRAVE. When I called them, the nice woman on the phone said they had an impressive vegetarian sushi menu and that they'd be willing to make any dish on the menu vegan upon request.


First off, let me say that this place is FANCY. Yep. Expect to pay out the butt, but the service and food is awesome.

So we started with dranks, of course. This here's is an agave margarita. Sorry for the bad picture-dim lighting, you know.

If you are a tequila fan (as I am), you will also think this drink is phenomenal. I like perfect balance of lime-y and spicy tequila-y and this had both. Perfect way to start out the meal. I probably would have been tanked if I had another one.

Next! We had some apps. We got the edamame and the mediterranean plate, pictured below for your viewing pleasure.

The hummus was fucking stellar. Absolutely delicious. The edamame was glazed in a sweet tamari sauce and made your fingers dirty when you ate them BUT! The nice waitress totally gave us some moist towelettes to wipe our hands onto. Nice.

Then! My vegan sushi!

This here's the "veggie platter" or something like that. It comes with cucumber, avocado, carrots and bunch of other veggies stuffed in there. It was absolutely divine. And since that word is way cheesy, I will break it down for you:

I've never met a vegan sushi roll I didn't like.

So! There ya have it. CRAVE in downtown Minneapolis will cater to vegans. That's pretty kickass.

Just thought you all should know this. It's pretty important:

That is all.

Getting back into the swing of things.

I have been slacking.

Like majorly slacking.

Like, there's no way you'd probably accept an apology. You're all fed up with me not posting, and quite fucking frankly, I am too.
So here we go.
I have made it one of my new years resolutions to pick up where I left off when it comes to many parts of my life (music, blogging, etc etc.)
I feel like things are finally going in the direction I want-I'm almost done applying for grad school, I am going to be playing some music with some kickass people, I'm applying for different jobs in the cities and I'm lighting a fire under my vegan ass to finally post about some delicious things I've been eating.

So here goes. An ode to HARD TIMES CAFE, my love.
Oh Hard Times, must thou be so delcious I can barely speak? Everything you make is done with such tastiness. The pinch of badass apathy you add into it only makes me want to come back for more. Why do you torture me so with your vegan biscuits and gravy, sexy hippies working the counter and coffee brewed to perfection, just for me? I love thee Hard Times. I love thee. Literally, your food makes me want to:

Cough. Moving on.

Anyways! Here's what I had a Hard Times this morning:

Vegan mushroom barley soup! I don't know how they make it so fucking creamy, but it was. It was, with a little bit of nootch and hot sauce, one of the best things I've tasted in a while. Delish!
Get down there. Like I keep telling you guys-it's good fucking food over here.
