It’s September 9, 2019 and this week, Vegans, Baby Bite takes a look at Nevada going cruelty-free, Ori’Zaba’s Scratch Mexican Kitchen’s special burrito deal, plus a look at the only vegan restaurant in town to have a weekly quiz night!
So … Nevada has some big news. Earlier this summer, we became only the second state in the country to ban the sale of cosmetics tested on animals. Bill 197 goes into effect at the start of 2020, but in the meantime you can check out two of my favorite places that have always been cruelty-free — Nails Envie, a vegan nail spa and Skincare Garden for customized facials. Plus, mention Vegans, Baby and you’ll get something special.
Mexican Independence Day is September 16 and Ori’Zaba’s Scratch Mexican Kitchen is celebrating with $6 create-your-own jackfruit carnitas burritos (note — we say tacos at the end, it’s only burritos, sorry for the mix-up!!). Mark your calendars so you can hit up one of their locations and try these bad boys. You can load up on tons of freebies like fajita veggies, potatoes and more OR do yourself a favor and add on the homemade queso planta everyone is raving about. Valid at participating locations, some restrictions apply.
Did you make it over to Violette’s Vegan last week for their first quiz night with Vegas Pub Quiz? If not, test your smarts — or, you know — show them off this Wednesday at 8 p.m. — or any Wednesday — for the city’s only quiz night at a vegan restaurant and take your shot at winning more than $100 in prizes. Never been to Violettes? What are you waiting for? This all-vegan organic restaurant has something for everyone, whether its fried chicken, mac and cheese or fresh juices and bowls
