The Cambridge Center for Adult Education is offering a vegan soul food cooking class! http://www.ccae.org/catalog/detail.php?id=566224

The three sessions they have up now are full but you can add yourself to the waitlist. The class is taught by a chef from Veggie Galaxy and costs $78.

One of my coworkers is selling Girl Scouts cookies, and they're from ABC Bakers, which means some vegan cookies! The vegan kinds are the Thin Mints, Thanks-a-Lot, Peanut Butter Patties, and Lemonades.

If you're in or near Boston and would like to order some, please PM me! I would be happy to order on your behalf and arrange to deliver them to you when they arrive in mid-February.

What is the order deadline?

Hmm, she said "a week" but didn't give me an exact date. I'd say next Wednesday to be safe.

Dear friends,

With heavy hearts, we must announce the closure of Peace o' Pie's location in Allston. As many of you know, our restaurant was damaged during the recent extreme cold weather and we have been working to recover from those events. There were a number of unforeseen consequences from the damage that occurred and, unfortunately, we were unable to agree to terms with our landlord on resolving those issues.

We have greatly missed serving you during this time. Over the next several months we will be evaluating opportunities for a new location and for new partnerships that will allow us to bring the Peace o' Pie experience back to Boston. We ask that you sign up for our mailing list and remain or become a fan of our Facebook page so that we can let you know any future plans that develop. We also invite you to contact us if you know of any business opportunities we should be aware of.

We can't thank you enough for all of your support and patronage over the last three years.

Yours in peace and pizza,

The Peace o' Pie Team

I'm so sad about this!

I feel like a member of my family has died. Or something similar to that feeling.

Man, that sucks. I feel bad for them. Also (selfishly) bummed because I had one Groupon from the recent promotion that I got as a gift so won't be able to use that one now. It's too bad because that block was turning into a real vegan mecca.

Groupon will refund your voucher, according to PoP's Facebook page.

yeah I had one I bought for myself that I'm getting refunded, but got one as a gift from my boss and I feel awkward telling her she can go get a refund, cause then it'll look like I want the money or want a different gift from her or something :p

Oh, awkward. And Groupon won't refund it to you? Can they give you Groupon credit or something?

hmm, I dunno. I could ask them. I just assumed there was no way they could do anything since someone else bought it. I think you can "officially" buy a Groupon as a gift for someone and transfer it to their account, but she just printed out the voucher and gave it to me so there's no way to prove it unfortunately. I could try though.

yeah whatever, it doesn't matter. It's just too bad they're closing. There are quite a few other places around Boston that have Daiya cheese options on their pizzas, but PoP was the only place to have interesting toppings and calzones and strombolis and stuff. It's a bummer to see an all-vegan place go under.

I have high hopes that they'll be able to relocate. Lots of people are suggesting locations and the guy from Eat at Jumbo's wants to collaborate with them. I don't know if they'll be into something like that - I think a PoP owner is also a BVA founder and they're pretty hardcore about vegan-only businesses - but I'm sure they'll work something out.

It would be cool if they moved to Central Square so we could have pizza and Veggie Galaxy right near each other. A lot of times V. Galaxy is just too crowded to get in, and though there are a lot of decent vegan options nearby already, but it would be nice to have another all-veg place to go to.

Finally got to try Fomu this weekend- so freaking good! I got 1/2 salted caramel and 1/2 cake batter. Loved them both but the cake batter was amazing. Next time I'm going up with a cooler!

Also got some no name and wontons, you know, because I was there.

Next time be sure to get the lavender "honey" and the dark & stormy.

I will, thanks! Dark & stormy is my favorite drink; if I had noticed it I definitely would've gotten it!

I was sad about Peace o' Pie though. That was such a nice little vegan corner.

I'm participating in the Walk for Hunger for the 3rd time this year. Anybody interested in walking with me? Or if you don't want to walk, a donation would be great - I think they take them as low as $10. Here's the link: http://www.projectbread.org/goto/brandybingham
