Hey folks, whatcha got going on today? Nothin'? Alright then! Head on over to to our favorite raw/vegan food trailer, Counter Culture on North Loop. Our friend Sue Davis is celebrating the first anniversary of her restaurant's founding today with a party from 4pm to 8pm (address is 120 E. North Loop at Ave. F). She's gonna have live bands playing like The Saucerians, Combo Mahalo and The Ripe. Plus she'll be serving vegan ice cream sundaes and corndogs!
Counter Culture is finishing its first year off big, with a shout-out in the July/August VegNews Magazine's article on what's great about Austin for vegetarians (thanks to VegAustin'com's Daniela Nu?ez). Plus they received an honorable mention in the Austin Chronicle's 2010 Readers' Restaurant Poll in both the Vegetarian Natural category and the Street Food category (for their delicious Philly Seitan sandwich).
Here's to an even better second year. Congratulations, Sue and Counter Culture!
