The Fox’s Travels: A Walk in New York

November 2, 2014 § Leave a comment

Seven days can really move fast in the city. The Fox has been all over the five boroughs, visiting the home of Bret & Jemaineangry dancing in Seward Park and making new feline friends in shops. He’s been eating Halloween doughnuts in Brooklyn and sampling some of New York’s finest bagels & tofu schmear. Picnic-ing and practicing his chess skills in Central Park was a highlight, as well as sampling vegan goodies all over Manhattan, The Fox has had a blast. He even got to spend an awesome Halloween enjoying margaritas, some of Manabu Ikeda’s greatest pieces at the Japan Society and seeing his favorite film, The Nightmare Before Christmas, in theaters again.

Cheers to another great week ahead.

The Fox’s Travels: Fall Foraging in NYC

October 26, 2014 § Leave a comment

The best way to any Fox’s heart is through his stomach. Well call him smitten, because The Fox has been snacking, drinking, cheganing and late night binging all over NYC. Here are a few of his favorites from the past week.

First up is Vinnie’s Brooklyn. This pizzeria creates unbelievably (and almost improbably) delicious grub for carnivores, vegans and gluten-free folks at their two Brooklyn locations.  The Fox checked out their Greenpoint location for some vegan chicken drumsticks and a vegan T.Hanks pie – and he will never look at vegan food the same way again. The drumsticks were out of this world, and the pie was gone before it even had a chance to cool. Two thumbs way, way up – make sure you check out this fantastic local pizzeria.

Next is the ice cream parlor formerly known as Lula’s Sweet Apothecary. This East Village gem serves up some of the best all vegan soft serve, hand-packed, flurries, sundaes and floats The Fox has ever had the pleasure of tasting. Flavors include spiced apple cider, chocolate chocolate chip, cake batter and peanut butter fudge. Toppings abound (you can even find vegan marshmallows), and you can find a huge assortment of delicious vegan chocolate bars that benefit local animal shelters. Currently un-named (due to personal disputes), please make sure you check out this absolutely fantastic ice creamery at 516 E 6th Street. You will not be sorry you did.

Finally for those late night cravings, The Fox has found the perfect spot for all you sushi lovers out there. East Kaiten Sushi & Sake Bar is a great spot to grab $16 pitchers of Sapporo, super fresh sushi and a little taste of Tokyo. This sushi bar is actually a sushi-go-round offering up the best sushi The Fox has tasted in ages, with the convenience of the conveyor belt system that takes every plate of sushi past each and every table for easy picking. You can of course order your favorites (to ensure you get some before your neighbors snatch up all of the avocado rolls), and every Friday and Saturday night from 11pm – 3am, all sushi is half off. Let’s review that again – all sushi is half off. Now that you’ve wrapped your scattered-mind around that crazy deal, get over to East Kaiten for a jolly good time.

The Fox’s Travels: Dun-Well Doughnuts & Brooklyn

October 19, 2014 § 1 Comment

After only a few days in New York, The Fox has already become befuddled by the endless options for food, entertainment and people watching. This weekend he enjoyed some time in Brooklyn (the hipster’s borough of choice) and indulged in beet burgers and vegan doughnuts. Dun-Well Doughnuts was founded in Brooklyn by longtime friends Christopher Hollowell and Dan Dunbar. The mission at Dun-Well “is to be the premiere vegan doughnut shop on planet Earth and reverently carry on the tradition of doughnut making in a manner that is both innovative and ethical.” Well hats off gentlemen, because you have succeeded. The Fox enjoyed not one or two of these fine pastries, but four. Don’t judge. You try being a vegan doughnut lover presented with choosing the vanilla with chocolate sprinkles, the chocolate glazed, the jelly-filled or the toasted coconut. All were delicious. All were consumed heartily and happily with a cup of Brooklyn Roasting Company’s Mocha Java. The doughnuts are made of a delicate, traditional raised style dough that melts in your mouth. Did we mention that everything is organic? The flavors vary daily and there seems to be no limit to the 200 plus mouthwateringly imaginative varieties that Dun-Well Doughnuts creates.

So raise a mug to The Fox when you check out Dun-Well as there is a good chance he will be camped out in the corner – eating his way into sugared bliss.

The Fox’s Travels: New York City

October 12, 2014 § 1 Comment

The Fox is going to New York. The Big Apple, NYC, the city that never sleeps – is it ready for The Fox? Is The Fox ready for it? Can you really get donuts delivered at 3am? Are those stories true about the alligators & the subway? These are just some of the provoking questions that have been running through The Fox’s thoughts this past week.

The Fox has also been seriously considering what to do with his time in New York. Visit friends and family, see the UN headquarters, take in a Brooklyn Nets game, spread The Fox’s word and most definitely – Pickle Day 2014. In the coming weeks The Fox will be exploring new corners, eating at different dives and definitely drinking at wayward watering holes.

We will keep you updated.
