Say Goodbye to Flore Vegan Cuisine (for now)

Vegan by Victoria’s La Rosca Pop-up

Sunday, January 5

While the highly anticipated second location of this Orange County-based vegan panaderia is still in the works, the bakery is popping up outside its soon-to-be new storefront to sell traditional la roscas for Epiphany. These ring-shaped, family-sized pan dulces will only be available from noon-3pm, so come early because they are bound to sell out.

Unity Open Mic

This might be the first cooking class you’ll take at a yoga studio, but if you come early for the hip-opening workshop, you’ll wonder why this combo isn’t more commonplace. Master the basics including Pineapple Fried Rice and Tom Kai Gai. Purchase your tickets on Eventbrite.

New Moon Sister Circle

Saturday, January 25

Need some support with those healthy resolutions? This women-curated event is meant to act as a support group for women looking to improve their overall health and wellness. Guests will be treated to vegan mocktails and snacks, swag bags, a short meditation, and a goal-setting workshop.

Take a Road Trip for The Plot Restaurant Opening

Late January

Yes, Oceanside is a bit of a trek, but it’s an hour closer than San Diego, and the beaches are far less crowded than LA. Go for the day, then head to your reservations at The Plot—a chic vegan eatery scheduled to open late this month. Think of elevated, perfectly plated, produce-focused cuisine with a laid back beach town vibe. Follow @theplotrestaurant on Instagram for opening updates … and photos of drool-worthy food.

Long Beach Meatless Mondays

Every Monday

If you find yourself down south on a Monday night, head to Modern Buds Long Beach for an intimate gathering of top vegan vendors. Love Amaro Pizzeria, Dynasty Donut, and Shane's Tamales are regular vendors, along with a handful of others that circle through.

Vegan Exchange Santa Clarita

Every Thursday

Vegan Exchange LA’s sister food fest. Head to Pocock Brewing Co in Santa Clarita every Thursday night between 4-9pm for vegan food and brews.

Vegan Pop-ups in Highland Park

Every Friday Night

Grab an infant-sized Cena burrito, enjoy it outside on the Block Party patio while sipping one of Jason Eisner’s craft cocktails, and finish the night with a baker’s dozen at Donut Friend. This ritual never gets old.

SunCafe Vegan Cooking Classes

Sundays at The Gentle Barn

Every Sunday

If you’ve never hugged a cow, you’re missing out. Make your reservation and check this off your bucket list.

Smorgasburg

Every Sunday beginning January 12
