Yesterday, my daughter and I went to Timeless Coffee for brunch. If you are in the Bay Area on a Sunday morning, this is the place to be – but get there by or before 9:30 when they start serving brunch. We got there about 9:25 and the place was mostly empty. By the time we finished ordering brunch (and one of their yummy vegan cinnamon rolls) the place was packed. Note to self: order a coffee refill when you order brunch so you don’t have to wait in line to order a second cup.
Here was yesterday’s brunch selection
and how it looked on the plate.
It was delicious.
It looks like April is going to be a busy month for getting out and celebrating with my fellow vegans (and vegan wanna-bees).
I already told you about the Conscious Eating Conference in Berkeley on April 4 – with some fabulous speakers.
Now there are two more dates to add to your calendar.
April 19, the Berkeley Vegan Earth Day will happen from 9:30am to 3:00pm. The speakers are nutritionists, animal activists, doctors and chefs, including Dr. Alan Goldhamer of True North and Keegan Kuhn co-director of Cowspiracy.
Spend the day listening to educational and earth-friendly talks and panel discussions, or wonderful food demos. There will also be vendors selling vegan products and activist groups to connect with.
Not to be outdone by its East Bay neighbor, Oakland is planning a Veg Week!
Some of the details are still being finalized, but there is something for everyone.
The movie on Tuesday will be Forks Over Knives followed by Q&A with a health coach and vegan athletes. Thursday is a Vegan Bar Crawl and Friday join the Youth Hip Hop Green Dinners for an event. The Veg Fest on Saturday will take place at the Lake Merritt Amphitheater – more details to come, but there will be lots of free food samples. Sunday’s event is a bus ride to Animal Place farm animal sanctuary in Grass Valley.
The Friday and Sunday events are by invitation only. Visit the site for more details.
I love living in the Bay Area and having these great events happening. It’s going to be a great spring. See you at the events.
