Animal Acres!

This weekend I went to Animal Acres, which is a sanctuary for farmed animals.  Suffice to say, it was INCREDIBLE! I've added some pics of the most darling animals you've ever seen with horrific stories.  The rooster we called Bellbottoms because he looked like he was wearing bellbottom jeans.  Pinto is the big cow.  I fell in love with a white donkey named Tonk and there were the sweetest goats, Jenko and Kirby.  It was incredible see see how these people care for all these animals and how much love there was at the farm.  I'm sooo happy that a place like Animal Acres exists and plead for EVERYONE to donate today.

The incredible tour was followed by a delicious vegan meal of spaghetti squash with pesto, pesto and/or sundried tomato bread, green beans, watermelon and amazing brownies.  It was fantastic eating and really only added to a great day for Becca and me.

After Animal Acres, we decided Sunday Funday and went for a drink at Tony Darts Away, which was on our way home. This is a fun bar that has a decent vegan menu, although I'm not a huge fan of their vegan sausages. However, kudos to them for even providing them.  Tony's is great because they offer many vegan beers and will do flights of four for cheap.  Also, they will let you sample any beer you're curious about.  Now it can't get any better, right? Wrong!  What really separates Tony's from anywhere else is the fact that they have a ton of board games!  Everything from Uno to Yahtzee to Sorry to Clue.  It's fabulous.  Becca and I played a few rounds of Candyland, some Clue and practiced our beer trivia.  Ah such a good Sunday.  Unfortunately I had too much fun and spent much of the afternoon napping on my couch.  When I got hungry I ordered Cruzer's Pizza, which is right down the street.  They make the most delicious bbq chicken pizza and cheesy breadsticks with Daiya. Mmmmmmmm.


  1. I love that you ate the spaghetti meal, Tony's, AND Cruzer Pizza all in one day. Tony's and Cruzer are two of my fave places to eat vegan stuff in LA. Are you going to the LA Vegan Beer Fest in Nov??

  2. I can't help myself! I couldn't make it to Vegan Beerfest and was soo sad about it but alas, I went out of town.
