What You Eat Impacts Everyone

Whoopi Goldberg recently said, “I like bacon. I want bacon. No one should tell me that I can’t have something. I want choice over my body.” It’s sadly ironic that Goldberg, who has supported various social justice causes, doesn’t recognize the harms of animal agriculture. People who eat animals often say that it’s nobody’s business what they eat. That’s an understandable posture for people who are only thinking about their

Terri NYC

We need to talk about Terri. Pretty commercial looking. Kind of fast foody. Not the most hospitable: only offers a few bar stools looking out windows. Sort of busy all the time. But, wow. This 100% vegan powerhouse is a must-visit. The food is bonkers. I stumbled upon this place (the sign is about 100 feet above ground level so unless you’re bird watching, you’re unlikely to see it), while

Rats Playing Hide & Seek

Recently a new scientific study made the news because people found it entertaining: “Lab rats play hide-and-seek for the fun of it, new study shows.” It describes how laboratory rats, after they got used to the strangeness of being let out of their small cages, not only were able to play the relatively complex game of hide-and-seek, but they enjoyed it, and they also enjoyed being rewarded by being tickled,

Delice & Sarrasin

Pacheco’s Parachute

In 1992, Alex Pacheco and PETA staffer David Barnes parachuted onto the island of Molokai, Hawaii. WHAT? Who DOES that? Anyhow, that might have been the easy part. Molokai, you may remember, is most famous for having had a “leper colony,” where people with leprosy were sent to keep them away from civilization, before it became a curable disease through multidrug therapy (yes, drugs do have their uses, though I

Urban Vegan Kitchen

Located in the West Village, Urban Vegan Kitchen will feed you with a side of funk. Walk into this hidden treasure off the beaten path near Bleeker Street and you’ll take a trip down memory lane. The walls are decorated with artwork by Keith Haring, Warhol, and Basquiat. Hip hop graffiti and poetry abound, and a disco ball reminds patrons that John Travolta used to walk the streets of this
