Breadworks, a local bakery and cafe, hosted a vegan Earth Day dinner! It was a nicely informal event with a bring your own wine policy. The tasty vegan food and community-centeredness made me nostalgic for uber-hippy-vegan-makeshift-restaurants-in-basements (ahem The Red Herring of Urbana, IL) BUT I shouldn't dwell too much on the grunge that Boulder lacks. Instead I will note how impressed I was with the number of people there. Boulderites know that a delicious meal does not need to involve animal products. Cheers to that!
And in case you're wondering, they served lentil soup, potato and kale enchiladas, mexican millet, jicama salad, and chocolate banana bread pudding. Yum!
