Vegan Society of Peace in Houston has a neat program. They’re challenging Texans to go vegan the first week in October. And to encourage people to try out veganism, they’re offering a coupon for a discount at many Houston vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants. So far, the couple is valid at Pepper Tree, Loving Hut, Pat Greer’s Raw Vegan Kitchen, Radical Eats, Sinfull Bakery, and The Vegan Cafe, but more locations may be added in the future. This is a good reason to dare your friends and family to try vegan food.

My car is packed and I’m ready to drive to Houston for VegFest Houston! If you’re anywhere near Houston, you should join me. This is Houston’s first VegFest, thrown by Vegan Society of PEACE. Besides featuring a ton of local veg businesses, musicians, and health speakers, the event is in honor of Shirley Wilkes-Johnson, a wonderful vegan advocate who died this year. VegFest Houston runs Saturday, June 11, from 10 AM to 4 PM at Pecore Hall in St. Stephens, 1805 W. Alabama, Houston, TX 77098.
