Jessica, Sarah and me at the Book Bash!

Ever since Sarah Kramer put out her first book How it All Vegan with then-partner Tanya Barnard, I've been hooked on her sassy style and fun approach to food. So, when I found out that VegNews was hosting a party for the release of her latest book, Vegan-A-Go-Go, I knew I wanted to be there. Then I found out that a $30 ticket got me a copy of the book (complete with autograph), all the drinks and food I could eat, and the possibility of winning some awesome door prizes, and I knew I HAD to be there.

"There" was the Ginger Rubio hair salon right here in SF last night. My friend Jessica and I went and had a great time. Sarah was inviting, warm, funny, and oh-so stylish, and the food and drink were fantastic. All in the 50's rockabilly style Sarah is so known for, we dined on rocket-dogs (spicy vegan sausages in a blanket), triscuits with mushroom spread, celery and carrot sticks with french onion dip, tollhouse cookies, root beer floats made with Virgil's, pink ladies (lemonade and vodka), and Pabst blue ribbon.... just to name a few. The crowd all had a blast and, even though I didn't take home any of the awesome door prizes, I still feel like I won because the book itself is prize enough. It is also my fave of the day. I mean, c'mon - an awesomely designed vegan cookbook and travel guide that fits in your pocket? I'm all about it. You should be too!

The root beer floats were awesome!
