One of the first places we added to The Restaurant Guide (can you believe it - almost five years ago?!) was Lai Thai Kitchen. It's one of those places we rarely get to, but when we do, we often wonder why we don't visit more often. Just about any dish on the menu can be made vegan. They also serve seitan and can substitute it in place of meat. Besides Thai cuisine, you can also get Vietnamese and Chinese dishes. LEARN MORE: http://vegangr.com/lai-thai-kitchen/

Brick Road Pizza Co. has a new menu out! There are several new vegan items on it. Last night we tried the Josie burger (house made avocado spread, pico de gallo sour cream & chive sauce) and the Loaded Potato pizza (baked potato, tempeh bacon bits, vegan cheddar, sour cream & scallions).

Also, today is their Thanksgiving brunch from 11 am to 2 pm. It will feature faux turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and other goodies. http://vegangr.com/brick-road-pizza-co/

For the next Vegan Drinks, we decided to do something very special! We've teamed up with Stir the Pot GR to have our very first Holiday Party.

We'll be back at the Rezervoir Lounge but this time you'll get a 3 course meal for just $15. Seriously, three delicious courses and the best company ever all for just $15!

You might think it's too early to think about the holidays, but we've already started perfecting our vegan egg nog recipe to have available for you that night. There will also be raffle prizes. Details below!

Vegan Grand Rapids participated in the Grand Rapids Walk for Farm Animals. Our team raised over $5500 for +Farm Sanctuary  and the entire event raised over $12k! It was a great day for the community to come together to stand united to support compassion for all.

How do you squeeze your tofu? Do you pile canned goods on a plate in an awkward leaning tower? One of our most used kitchen gadgets is this press made by +TofuXpress. This little kitchen gadget makes squeezing your tofu so easy! We use it almost daily in our house.

Our top 3 fundraisers for the Grand Rapids Walk for Farm Animals will each win one of these! If you'd like to join our team on October 5, sign up at http://VeganGR.com/GRWalkForFarmAnimals
