Pittsburgh Neighborhood’s Skyline Goes Vegan May 22-29

A vegan message will grace the skyline of East Liberty in Pittsburgh May 22-29, 2011, when we rent the large billboard atop the roof of the Waffle Shop building. The message, featuring traditional Pittsburghese:

GLOBAL VEGAN WAFFLE PARTY
BE KIND
BE HEALTHY
REDD UP OUR PLANET N’AT

“Redd up” means to clean up, and “n’at” is loosely translated to “and so forth.”

Perhaps some additional Pittsburghers will decide to participate in this year’s Global Vegan Waffle Party!

Waffle Shop, an experimental project run by Carnegie Mellon students and faculty, combines food with an array of social messages. They regularly feature a vegan waffle on their menu, and the associated Conflict Kitchen has featured vegan Afghan bolani.

Thanks to those of you who have already purchased The Global Vegan Waffle Cookbook, as you’ve helped to make projects like this possible.

  1. Cool! That’s only about a mile from my Mom’s house (where I lived during high school); I’ll have to ask her to check it out. She’s not vegan, but eats very little meat at least…

  2. Very interesting! Maybe she can even see it from her house. Thanks also for the comment on the other post.
