yelp has a deal for vegan tree going on right now. $10 for $15 worth of stuff. (not as deep of a discount as most daily deal sites, but 30% off isn't bad)

i just got this groupon for the great urban race. (it's really funny, cause we were absolutely not going to pay the $120 fee, but $60 isn't bad. so mr. carrot asked me to keep an eye out for a groupon. and sure enough!) it's next weekend. so short notice, but it sounds really fun. does anyone else want to join us?

it's more like, well, I'm familiar with the city and have to find somewhere to go y the end of july (i know, like 7 months away, I've got time to ponder)

I'm thinking about Albuquerque, Seattle, or Philly.

both ABQ and seattle are both lovely. if ABQ had a vegan donut shop, i'd say go there, but seattle wins this round.

I would be pretty excited if you moved back to Philly. We can make vegan donuts anytime you want. And have pants-optional craft parties.

let's use this thread as a "philly randomness" or one-time events/short notice thread. (i know i miss a lot of posts in the subforum on days that i only check threads i've already posted in. maybe it's similar for you?)

this sunday will be a potluck at FDR park. (looks like it's arranged by people who will be organizing a protest later)
https://www.facebook.com/events/1430935787202338/

also, the rotunda will be hosting a soil testing event both saturday and sunday
https://www.facebook.com/groups/VeganCi ... 476839867/

(i'll see if sunday works, that way i can multitask that $5 bridge toll.)

Hey! My husband and I just did a quick Philly vacation this weekend. My husband lived in Philly for awhile, but I've never spent any time in the city outside of a couple of conferences where I didn't leave the conference location, so it was nice to finally hang out a little there. We ate as much as we could possibly handle, made ourselves sick, and then tried to eat some more.

Vedge: Super awesome. Really glad we went here first. I'm sorry I didn't try a cocktail (was saving my half a cocktail of the weekend for Charlie was a Sinner, which turned out to be a mistake), although the rhubarb ginger beer was really yummy and my husband had a yummy cider. Everything was really great. The rutabaga fondue redeemed rutabaga for me forever - I was eating it with my fingers at the end until the server came by and dropped some more bread - "looks like you need a little more bread here." Loved the fancy radish plate, seitan, and congee/ramp thing. I felt like there was so much attention to serving a diversity of textures and flavors and everything tasted exactly like itself in such a perfect way. Service was wonderful. 7 kinds of sorbet/ice cream at the end - wonderful. Couldn't handle the chocolate uber chunk on top of all the other flavors! Avocado/cilantro sorbet was our favorite.

Vegan Commissary for brunch: French toast was quite good. Cinnamon buns good. Coffee just okay. Service was really slow. I ordered the Vegg's Damian and really regretted it. It's a "poached egg" style tofu + Vegg-type yolk, bernaise sauce, asparagus, chorizo, potatoes, and toast. The yolk, bernaise sauce, and asparagus were yummy. Everything else on the plate was either really bleh or inedible. Sad grey mushy potatoes, sad mushy chorizo patty, underseasoned, not sufficiently cooked tofu as the white for the "egg" - could not take more than one bite. We also ordered the tempeh hash, which I liked well enough, although my husband was irritated there was no "bacon" in the name, because it tasted like bacon and he thinks that taste is super gross and would've avoided it had he known. I could not identify any actual tempeh in it.

Blackbird pizza: Split the Ringer and Cheesesteak. I liked the Ringer especially. My husband also got a slice and the rootbeer BBQ wings, I took a bite of each, both very tasty, crust surprisingly good on the pizza. Blackout cookie at the end tasted of sadness and chalk.

Charlie was a Sinner: After Blackbird my husband came down with a mini-migraine and my stomach started hurting. We really tried to enjoy Charlie's but had to bail 5 minutes after our food came out. My stomach couldn't handle the thought of a cocktail. I basically couldn't eat anything because everything tasted/smelled too strongly for me. Almost everything seemed overseasoned, but I don't know if that was just me, and anything that could be blackened was blackened, which seemed like overkill. The pea soup tasted like straight-up dirt. The smell of the cauliflower dish made us both really nauseous (some kind of weird vinegar, maybe?). The ricotta was mild enough to eat and pretty tasty, as was the pasta that came with the meatballs (although I couldn't eat the meatballs) - I ate both of those in our hotel room 3 hours later but still couldn't handle the rest. The atmosphere made me feel like I was going to have a seizure. When I am feeling well and not pregnant I would go back for happy hour, but probably wouldn't go back to have a full meal.

HipCityVeg: We went to Mi Lah Vegetarian for brunch, but it was closed!!! No!!!! They are moving to a new location apparently, and won't be open till early May. So we walked around the block to Hip City. I had some kind of chik'n sandwich and the birthday cake shake. It was fine. My husband got cheesesteak again which I thought was better than Blackbird's but not really my thing. His creamsicle shake was better than my shake.

And we went to some museums and walked around and enjoyed Philadelphia! And what is with selling subway tokens in 2s or 5s in plastic baggies? That was super weird. The end.

Sounds like a pretty good synopsis! Vedge is always good. Id say next time to try and make part of the happy hour too. They use the rutabaga sauce on top of a mushroom chee-steak = amazing. Vegan Commissary is a bit weird these days with the brunch only and everything else… Id agree blackbird desserts aren’t top notch but I hope you got a Dottie’s donut at least while you were here!

I really like the dishes you got at Vegan Commissary! To each his own I guess. And it's such a shame you weren't feeling well at Charlie's because I love their food.

Although not right in Philadelphia proper, Flora in Jenkintown is a very good new restaurant that's 100% vegan.They recently switched over to their Spring menu which features 4 options per course (they do 3 courses for $35 or 4 courses for $40 (includes dessert). They're BYOB so that's a money saver for me. The full menu is up on their website here: http://www.florajenkintown.com/menu-1/

They also just announced that with at least 1 week's notice they offer a 7 courses for $65 per person chef's tasting menu.

A friend of mine was in there a week ago and said they also are very accommodating for gluten free, soy free and raw vegans but recommended calling ahead for reservations due to it only being 18 seats.
