When it comes to championing animal rights, few do it better than Paul McCartney.
So of course it made sense that Paul helped PETA present an award for the most vegan-friendly city in the U.S.!
Can you guess who it is??
Wrong! We thought it'd be Portland or San Fran (or maybe even El Lay) but it turns out those are all wrong!
It was Austin, Texas!
Paul, along with PETA's Senior Vice President Dan Mathews, presented Mayor Lee Leffingwell with an award recognizing Austin as the most vegan-friendly city!
Austin claimed the title, according to PETA, because of:
"[…] the wide variety of vegan meals, snacks, and desserts served in its cafés, co-ops, dairy-free ice cream shops, music venues, and more. While many restaurants around town—such as Mother's Cafe & Garden, Counter Culture, and Bouldin Creek Cafe—serve up delicious vegan food, it's in the food truck division that Austin really pulls ahead of the competition: The Vegan Yacht, The Vegan Nom, Arlo's, and Capital City Bakery are all completely vegan, and many other trucks—including East Side King, Biscuits and Groovy, and The Flying Carpet—have delicious vegan choices on their menus."
Sounds like a delicious and tasty place to live!!
Paul would agree, saying:
"The influx of forward-thinking musicians and techies, the thriving university, and the food trucks all over the city run by young veg-friendly hipsters have made Austin the absolute cutting-edge place for green eating."
We wanna head to Austin and check out some of their tasty vegan food trucks!
Or maybe those trucks could drive up to us! LOLz!
