NEWS

The Vegans In Vegas has a fanstatic recap video from the conference. Check it out here: ...

Ed, Ina, and I attended the Animal Rights Conference in LA along with many other animal advocates. I took notes and have begun to publish them on my vegan website, Vegan Soapbox. If you'd like to read the notes they are here: vegansoapbox.com/topics/ar2011

VegFund has a new project called VegVids.com where they share a wide variety of videos relating to veganism.

Peter Singer has a new popular article up right now about progress of the AR movement. You can read it here: http://globalpublicsq...

Our local vegan-friendly ice cream shop Atomic #7 was featured on the cover of Desert Companion with a tasty vegan mint chip ice cream!

Starbucks has a new vegan food option: Sesame Noodles Bistro Box.


VOLUNTEER?




If you would like to host an event, please email me at [email protected]

I would like to start up a leafleting crew to go on Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street on the weekends and evenings. If you are interested, please email me. See my email address above.


Again, thanks for all you do to help animals or protect the environment. You're doing a good thing!

Take care,

Elaine

Preferably on the 31st, outside the MGM Grand?

Steve Wynn is vegan, so if you want to eat there, that's not far from the MGM. I ate at the Strattus (sp?) and it was nice. I am not vegan, so I just ordered off the regular menu. All of the restaurants at Wynn properties have a vegan menu if you ask for it.

What's the occasion for your visit?

I had heard of Steve Wynn but didn't know where his hotels were on the strip. It's my first visit to vegas so I will have to do some research soon.

Occasion? Holiday - we are in Santa Monica/LA first for a week - and from what I have read there will be loads of choice there for vegan food. I have heard that a lot of the hotels have buffet meals, but I am reluctant to pay for a full buffet meal if we have a very limited choice of food there (we are a party of 6 all vegetarian/vegan). So ideally I am looking for restaurants and cafes that cater mainly for veggie-people. I'll be printing off the page that Elaine sent me to, and taking it with me!

Yeah, I thought as much

I need to check where we are located on the strip compared to other hotels and restaurants - I have been told that it is a long way from one end of the Strip to the other - I'm not sure whether this is true, or whether the person who told me was just lazy (on trip advisor) !

Maybe I will bump into some of the leaflet-delivering vegan bods while I'm out there - I'll look out for you all anyway
