Mad heads at the Vegan Valentine’s Shop-Up and birthday celebration! Despite construction on the L train and some chilling temps, we worked up quite a crowd at Pine Box Rock Shop last Sunday! Folks came from near and far to find local goods, snack on free cupcakes, and saddle up to the bar with drink specials and new friends. It was a sweetheart of a good ol’ time and we were glad to share it with so many talented and friendly people. Sample sale deals from The Tafari, flaky Croissants from Champs Bakery, Chipotle Mac ‘n’ Cheese from Electric Blue Baking Co., pink Raspberry Pudding Cupcakes from Clementine Bakery, Faux Gras Sandwiches by The Regal Vegan, and letter press Valentine’s from Pepper Press!
