A special Raspberry Danish, by Evan
My weekend at the Let Live Northwest Animal Rights Conference and our week of Dittering ended with a coconut creme pie and mingling with tons of friends at the cart village following the Bye & Bye after party. It was super cool to attend the conference and see everything Chad and Josh mentioned on our podcast last month and more! come to fruition.
I went to inspirational talks on Regional Issues in Animal Activism, Online Social Networking as an Activist Tool, and an update on the "Green Scare". I saw most vegans I recognize in Portland, plus a buttload more, so many! My friend Evan of Bjorked Off! from Vancouver, BC has been in town for it, and that means I've been very caffeinated. We visited
Barista in the Pearl District on Sunday, because that's what we do. Dude, I sit down and sip my lattes from there, and every time, I think...it's so creamy, so light, so much more perfect than I anticipated....that's what you get going to an innovative shop opened by an award winning barista.

We also hit up Sweetpea, because that's what all vegans do. Audra made us swoony lattes - that girl is the best barista I've seen on the East Side! Evan had a hemp and almond one, and I opted for an iced. It had just a hint of chocolate and hazelnut, two of my classic favorite flavors.
