Double your Donation for Meat-Eaters to try Veg Food

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Please join Bay Area Vegetarians for the first annual Oakland Veg Week!

Oakland Veg Week is a week-long celebration (April 15-21, 2012) that invites meat-eaters to pledge to be vegetarian for one week. It’s a positive, upbeat event where everyone wins: Meat-eaters who want a little help with their veg experiment, local restaurants who want more customers, the City of Oakland (who, let’s face it, could use some happy press!), and most importantly, the animals who would really, really, really like to see more vegetarians!

Bay Area Vegetarians is going to match every donation made for OVW12 up to $500.00. For real! That means a possible total of $1,000 to buy more vegan food to give to meat-eaters…if you can help us out. Your $50 donation is actually $100 with this match, and it’s tax-deductible! Oakland Veg Week is all volunteer, all free, and all awesome. With your support, OVW can reach more meat-eaters with the veg information and samples.

Please consider donating today to help create more vegetarians!

Fast Food Veg Indian Restaurant Open in Vallejo

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Vaishnu Express Cafe opened last fall, serving fast food Indian vegetarian food in a strip mall in Vallejo, just of 29 near 37.

They offers curries, sweets, and chaat. Several of the curries and chaat are vegan. Ample indoor seating, in a clean, no-frills environment. Food is served on paper trays.

Weekday lunch special is 4.99 and entrees 5.99. Catering is also available.

They don’t have a permanent sign up yet, just a banner.  Look for #135; it’s next door to the donut shop.  There’s also an Indian grocery store in the strip mall, Indian Bazaar.

Vaishnu Express Cafe may very well hold the title as Vallejo’s First Vegetarian Restaurant.  If you’ve tried it, do share with us what you like.  Or other nearby places for veg eats.
