This is what I wore Thursday of last week.  My husband and I attended a fundraiser that evening to benefit the Woodstock Animal Sanctuary.  It was held on a rooftop here in Williamsburg, and there was amazing vegan hor d’oeuvres, cocktails and entertainment.  We had heard about the event last-minute the night before, and after hearing it was going to be held so close to home we had to swing by and check it out.  All the proceeds are going to go towards repairs and improvements for the sanctuary’s duck pond and pig barn.  I have yet to actually visit the sanctuary myself, but being it’s only a two-hour drive north of the city I’m making it a goal of mine to get there before the end of the summer.

All in all we had a fantastic time and I had to opportunity to meet and network with more vegans from the area, which is always fun.

I had attempted to take more photos at the event, but again we had gray, crappy weather and none of my images came out well.  Here’s hoping the weather breaks sooner rather than later!

Willburg Cafe

26 Jun

My husband and I are always on the lookout for great places for brunch. After a crazy hectic week at work, we love being able to catch up and start off our weekend days over some caffeine and breakfast.

Finding places that have great vegan options isn’t too hard in Williamsburg, but my husband not being vegan does appreciate going to places where he can get what he wants to eat occasionally. I love hitting up Willburg Cafe on Grand Street for this purpose. I can always depend on a great tofu scramble or bagel and tofu cream cheese, and my husband can still get his eggs benedict. This makes for a very happy couple and a great start to the weekend.

One of my favorite things they do here is when you get your check, it comes out in a mini treasure chest. How cute is that?

Now that it’s summer and the weather has been great, I noticed Willburg Cafe has opened up some sidewalk seating. Perfect for bringing your dog and grabbing a quick bite while enjoying the summer breeze. We can’t wait to bring Portia with us!
