This week is the 5th annual World Vegan Week, a campaign started by In Defense of Animals. For the next several days you can eat like Lea Michele and Alicia Silverstone, even if you aren't equipped to cook that way. Local restaurants Drew's Eatery, New York Deli, Clark St Dog and Ian's Pizza have teamed with Mercy for Animals, and are offering special vegan menu items for the week.
I'm not sure I believe that one GROUP can CALL a 'vegan week', but if LOCALS observe it, great. I think it's like claiming that Noah had a local flood story.
Isn't it SUPPOSED to be global - all or nothing?
