There's other stuff I wanted to blog about but have not yet, but ahhhh tonight's events take precedence. There was work I wanted to get done tonight, but after receiving an email about free/cheap things to do in the city (I signed up to get them daily, but rarely ever read them) at about 4 pm with the subject "TALK SHOWS, MET OPERA, SALAD SAMURAI" I decided to a) read the email and then b) walk to the LES to a book release by an awesome lady of an awesome vegan cookbook (That would be Salad Samurai by Terry Hope Romero in case you aren't following) where free drinks, desserts, and salad samples will be served! Work be damned!
The book release bash was held at MooShoes, the vegan shoe store I blogged about a while back. G and I got there earlyish and looked around at shoes we couldn't afford and cookbooks I already own.
Cookies were out on the counters, but G and I got dinner first like good little vegans. Yea Dawg, an all-vegan hot dog cart was providing sustenance outside.
Inside was even more food waiting for us.

I knew a couple people, but was mostly freaking out, for whatever reason. Coming from work on the spur of the moment I was totally unprepared (and frazzled and tired and smelly) and I wished I'd had some zines with me! I did meet J Legume, Jess's lady, and rambled maniaclly to her (so sorry!) and decided it was time to GET OUT.
But not before getting one more photo...
K THAT'S ALL GO EAT SOME SALADS. Also, samurai is a really bizarre word if you look at it long enough and time it so many times.
