1. Eco Boutique Opens in LA. An awesome eco-boutique, Visionary, has opened in West Hollywood - but so far it's only for the ladies. Hey Visionary! Don't forget about us Brutes!
2. Penny Licks is Vegan Sweets Heaven! Last night at Penny Licks - Melissa, Jodi and I indulged in vegan brownie sundays with soy whipped-cream and a cherry on top! While wearing a gorgeous Organic cotton polo, I had a peanut-butter brownie sunday with temptation cookie-dough vegan ice cream. Jodi went to town on a huge slice of vegan coconut cream cake from Vegan Treats. To top that off, We ate with biodegradable corn-based spoons and ate out of biodegradable cups. Not everything is vegan here, but most of it is, and most of it is organic as well. This is my new favorite spot! See you there....
3. Vinnie's Pizzeria Makes Love to the Vegan Pie. Just a few doors down from Penny Licks, Vinnie's Pizzeria is putting shame to any other pizza place that has attempted to do vegan pies before. There isn't just one "we have to put something out to take economic advantage of those annoying vegans" pie. Every day there are at least three innovative pies, in addition to handwheels, rolls, and sandwiches. They use Teese, from the same people that brought you Temptation.
4. Polar Bear on Official "Endangered Species" list.
Earlier this week, the Secretary of the Interior placed the polar bear on the Endangered Species List as a threatened species.The listing is clearly a step in the right direction. Much more needs to be done -- to save the polar bear and solve the climate crisis. WeCanSolveIt.org
