Café VegNews' 1,000th Post!

The Chef: Colleen and Taqueria Cancun

The Menu: Soft tacos with black beans, rice, onions, cilantro, and avocado—plus a healthy side of chips and salsa

The Dish: It was Taco Tuesdays here at VegNews, complete with melon aguas frescas and streaming salsa tunes. And why the festive celebration? IT'S THE 1,000TH POST OF CAFE VEGNEWS! Yes, we're excited, as that's a lot of posts, a lot of lunches, and a lot of delicious vegan food. Café VegNews debuted on October 27, 2007, when Managing Editor Elizabeth Castoria decided it was time VegNews had a blog. And, back then, we were still in our old offices where we served a staff lunch every day to the VN team, so a blog chronicling our meals was the perfect foray into the world of blogging. Over the years, we've featured every type of cuisine imaginable, entertained guests from around the world, ate very healthfully (kale salad!) and very unhealthfully (deep-dish Chicago pizza), and enjoyed many a memorable moment with fellow VN staffers. And we've blogged about it every single (business) day since that October day four years ago. We hope you'll help us toast this milestone for VegNews, and cheers to all of our wonderful Café VegNews readers who've made penning this blog so gratifying. Here's to 1,000 more posts!

"And we've blogged about it every single (business) day since that October day four years ago."

False! But I still love the blog anyway.

Hi there Anonymous! Thanks for the love on Cafe VegNews. Just so you know, we do actually post every day we're in the office. It is, after all, a daily lunch blog. Hope you continue enjoying it!

What happened to Friday, Jul 22 then? I'm not trying to discredit the blog, I just noticed the factual error. VN doesn't ALWAYS post, although they do the majority of the time. I've noticed a few missing ones this year, sadly. That's all.

Wahoo for 1000 posts! I love reading this blog and you make me want to take a trip to SF soo bad just to try all the delicious food around! It's also given me lots of inspiration for my own lunches. Keep it coming :)

Hi there Anonymous! Thanks for checking in on our business days. July 22 was actually not a business day for VegNews, as our team was in Los Angeles at the 2011 Animal Rights Conference. It was a wonderful event, we picked up lots of great story ideas, and were thrilled to be supporting such important work!
